The legendary Green Arcade in South Korea closes its doors

Thank you for your service!

Earlier today it was revealed on Twitter by Jae Min ‘Knee’ Bae, and later by Hyun Kyu ‘Nin’ Park, that Green Game Land, also known as Green Arcade, in Daerim, South Korea would be closing its doors. For a great number of years Green Arcade was the ‘dojo’ for Tekken players that would go on to win major championships worldwide, and become household names with cult followings.

The reason for Green Arcade closing is reported to be due to the old structure of the building, decreasing finances and the increase in console and PC gaming. The gravitational pull toward these versions of Tekken are widely due to DLC content coming to them first, and maybe even exclusively.

Both Knee and Nin have shared their thoughts and expressions about Green Arcade’s closing.

It’s sad to see such a pivotal and monumental landmark close, but at least Tekken and the love for the game goes on. Green Arcade… thank you for your service!

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
