Pop-up arcade brings retro gaming classics back to Manchester
Street Fighter II fight

Get ready to power up once more

A pop-up retro games arcade will offer players unlimited chances to beat the end of level baddies when it opens in Manchester later this month.

Ready Player One – History of Video Games will see over 50 vintage video games, including Space Invaders and Street Fighter, go on display at Future Artists Studio in Salford, with players able to play for up to three hours per session.

Four sessions will be available each day, with each three hour slot costing £12.95, allowing unlimited play on the machines, plus a chance to try out original Sega, Nintendo and Atari consoles.

There’s also a chance for groups of players to book a slot and get their names on the scoreboard.

Ready Player One – History of Video Games runs from Sat 30 July – Sun 11 September at Future Artists Studios, 81 Chapel Street, Salford, fatsoma.com/future-artists-studios
