Thought about maybe taking an entire day to explore all the arcades. It'll be fun. Additionally, i get to explore Tokyo. Could be like something out of The Amazing Race.

Wondering if anyone has any clue as to whether there are any new arcades in Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akiba, Ikebukuro, or Nakano?

The arcades that i know that have closed so far are:
Shibuya Kaikan, Namcoland Shibuya, FunFun La Seine, Adores Den, Playland Las Vegas, Alpha Station, Adores Milano, FunFun Akiba and Adores Kabukicho

Any recommended arcades not on the arcade guide?

I found this website as well: http://www.geocities.jp/studio_anata/top.html

Hi asgoodasred, and welcome to the MMCafe BBS!

The Arcade guide basically just covers arcades in the major locations of the city. If you're thinking of venturing throughout more rural areas of Tokyo as well, there's a LOT of arcades to discover! The most well-known ones are all documented in the guide though, leave aside some places like Newton Oyama (home of 3rdStrike) which can't be reached with the JR line.

As for arcades in the major areas, the only new location is probably Ikebukuro's Round One which I haven't listed in the guide yet, and also Project Adores if it can be called an arcade (it's in the location where Dingdong used to be). You can strike out LasVegas off Ikebukuro's list, Espadio Paseo out off Shinjuku, Casino Royale off Nakano, and FunFun off Akiba which all closed down in the past 2 years.

I'll try and mark out the closed arcades off the guide soon, given that August is just around the corner. If you have any other Q's, feel free to ask.

Yes they did they moved a while back like 7 years ago, so the arcade guide has the correct location.
