New arcade opening in Brookfield, IL this May: G3 Arcade

When you see arcade game news out there on a site that allows comments, often I read about how people consider arcades being dead as they don’t know of any near them. Of course we have pointed out websites whose sole purpose is to help players find an arcade near them but there are some areas where there isn’t much to speak of. If you live in or near Brookfield, IL however, then you have a new arcade to look forward to called G3 Arcade.

One interesting thing about this place is that it will be run in part by Galloping Ghost Productions and G-Rox Inc. That first name might sound familiar as they are the guys who are  working hard on a new fighter that we have covered several times before known as Dark Presence. Here is a rundown of the new facility by Doc Mack of Galloping Ghost :

Its 6,000 sq feet, and currently have 120 unique games which we aim to have closer to 175 by the time we open.  We will offer many unique features at the arcade and will even be letting gamers see our games development up close and hands on! We are making sure to have all the classics as well as all the great games from the 80s and 90s and of course a large amount of fighting games!  We are going to stay away from the games you see everywhere like DDR style games, the bigger racing games and we will be very selective with our light gun games (we’ll have T2 and Operation Wolf as opposed to House of the Dead).

They are planning on running it like an old-school arcade, i.e. no redemption games and the game roster they sent me which you can read after the break. As always we wish the best of luck to G3 Arcade in their efforts and if you are in the area, be sure to give them your support! Who knows, you might be one of the first to check out Dark Presence as well.

    Can’t wait to check it out. I’m interested in seeing how they will fit that many games into one location.

  3. igo Says:

    Nice game lineup! If I lived in the area I would be there all the time.

  4. Tim Static Says:

    I hope by MK3 you mean Ultimate MK3 😀

    The original MK3 is obsolete, and in essense, UMK3 is MK3 Rv3.2

    This post was mentioned on Twitter by TRMK: New arcade is opening in Brookfield, IL. It’s being opened by a company making a fighter with MK style digitized actors http://bit.ly/98sAu4

  6. Mengels7 Says:

    Hang-On? Pshhh. Needs Super Hang-On.

    • JB Says:

      What no Killer Instinct bah

      But this is close to home so I will def make a trip over there to check it out.

      Unfortunately where I am at an Arcade like this would not survive so I have to go redemption (among other things) to fund the arcade I want to start up.

  7. Ghostlord Says:

    Thanks everyone…We really hope to make it a great arcade. The list of games are the ones we currently have, and we are adding even more (some may be removed too if we find the arcade boards have problems). Having worked on the Dark Presence game I’m obivously a huge fighting game fanatic, so by the time we open, the Mortal Kombat 3 will be an Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and we be getting Killer Instinct and Killer Instinct II, so please don’t worry on that. We also have Samurai Shodown 1, 2, 3, Last Blade, Dead Or Alive ++ currently on order and will be getting Street Fighter III, several KOF games and MANY more very soon.

  8. Astroboy Says:

    Good to see a new arcade opening. People are calling this an old guy’s arcade judging from the games that will be there.

    I see why they wouldn’t want DDR or any other music/rhythm based game but the truth is that they are huge money makers, people travel from all around the country to play these games. Perhaps this may change in the future, who knows.

  9. STREETFIGHTERFAN Says:

    I WANT STREET FIGHTER II, STREET FIGHTER II CE, AND STREET II HYPER FIGHTING.

  10. Jeff Says:

    When are you opening in Brookfield, Illinois
