A new amusement facility has opened up at the Puente Hills Shopping mall in the LA area and thanks to AH contributor Phil Arrington (who setup the Arcade Heroes videocast at Amusement Expo earlier this year and also gave us a glimpse at an auction not too long ago) we have an in-depth look at this awesome new location. Called Round 1, this is the first amusement facilities that the company has setup in the United States, with most of their locations being found in Japan. The arcade might not be the primary focus of the facility which also sports a modern bowling alley, pool tables, darts, karaoke, ping pong and food but the game selection is nothing short of impressive. Some of the titles found at Round 1: Terminator Salvation Super Deluxe (the 100″ version); a four-player Tank! Tank! Tank!; a Deadstorm Pirates; two Sega Rally 3 motion deluxe machines; four Initial D5 units; four GTI Club units; four Wangan Maximum Tune 3DX+ units; linked Street Fighter IV; two Tekken 6 cabs; Samurai Shodown Sen; a GuitarFreaks and DrumMania XG; Pump It Up Pro 2; Raiden IV and more. I hadn’t heard of GTI Club making it to the States until now and the selection shows that they are aiming to bring together some of the best titles from around the world. I would not be surprised if they will have a Darius Burst AC there when that is available, but we’ll have to wait and see.The only thing Round 1 seems to missing are some pinball machines.
