Bandai Namco: il paradiso di gamer e otaku

“Bandai Namco”, especially if you know the world of video games, anime and manga. However, if there is anyone who doesn’t know it yet, we’ll introduce it to you: Bandai Namco Entertainment is one of the leading companies in the entertainment sector with a wide range of activities and a strong worldwide presence. Its iconic franchises (“Tekken”, “Soulcalibur”, “Dark Souls”, “Tales of”, “Ace Combat”, “Dragon Ball” to name a few) make it a dominant force in the gamer and otaku world!

The company also operates numerous amusement arcades and theme parks and, in the heart of Akihabara, known as the Japanese electronics and pop culture district, stands Namco Akihabara, also known as Namco Namjatown: a popular 6-story entertainment complex!

Namco Akihabara

Gamers, collectors of action figures, trading cards and anime lovers are you listening? Good, because this is your paradise!
The first two floors are full of “claw machines” (or “crane games” or prize cranes, where it is possible to grab your prize through a sort of “paw” and a mechanism of the machine): you can try to win everything that you enjoy spending a lot of time (and money!!) chasing the most coveted prize!

The third floor is dedicated to arcade games including eight Taiko no Tatsujin drum machines. You really shouldn’t lack rhythm and you must know how to be ready to sweat!

On the fourth floor, you will be impressed by the 800 Namco capsule toy machines (the famous gashapon ガシャポン) where you can win small gadgets of all kinds in a totally random way!

Going up to the fifth floor the world of Bandai collectable cards opens up and, if you feel well prepared, you could even try your hand at real card game battles!

But now let’s go back down and go to the basement: do you know Gundam right? Very good, this is the place dedicated to its video games of which Bandai Namco owns the copyrights! There are 44 Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs 2 OverBoost games available and special events are regularly held.

Of course, entry to the huge complex is free, with payment required just to play each game.

Ultimately, Namco Akihabara is a lively and fun place that perfectly represents the spirit of Akihabara and offers a unique experience for visitors to Tokyo, especially those who are interested in Japanese pop culture and entertainment… and….YOU COULD VISIT IT TOGETHER WITH US!
