The first exA-Arcadia games are coming to Belgium! This new arcade platform is very popular in Japan but is not well known in Europe yet. It's a pity because it brings a breath of fresh air with the return of genres that have disappeared from our local arcades like fighting games, shoot'em ups, party games,... Some of you have been able to play several of these titles on Arcade Belgium's booth during various events such as Made in Asia, Comic Con Brussels and FACTS. The only problem is that these events only lasted for a weekend. Now you can extend your fun by visiting Le Crocodile Rouge. The visitor centre is located right next to the Lacs de l'Eau d'Heure dam (in Froidchapelle in the Hainaut province). You will find the following exA-Arcadia games there: The Kung Fu vs Karate Champ, Dodonpachi True Death EXA Label, Nippon Marathon Turbo and Cosmic Digger 3671. Other games include Daytona USA 2 and Terminator Salvation. The games are located in front of the entrance to the Robin's Café. While you're there, feel free to have a drink or a bite to eat in this pleasant setting and why not take a walk around the lake (the restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). The video games are accessible every day from 10:00 to 20:00. On Wednesdays and weekends, you can enjoy various activities such as a visit to the dam or a laser game. The games will be renewed regularly, so please check the location's page for a list of the games currently in operation. For operators interested in these new games, please contact Red Sun Systems who is the European distributor. Have fun!
