Description

Opened in 1972 as Casino Game Las Vegas and switched over to the arcade game business in 1993, Shinjuku playland carnival was an emblematic game center in Kabukicho, Shinjuku. Housing 380 machines on two floors of the Humax building, including 160 terminals dedicated to video games, it was one of the biggest game center in Shinjuku (at its peak, it drew in more than 5,000 gamers a day).

With a vast selection of fighting games, the Game Center was known as a hot spot for King Of Fighter. 

A Cool place to also finish the night after a Tsukiji fish market visit or too many drinks in Golden Gai, it sadly closed its doors in November 2020 due to covid crisis. Drawing by Arthur Ortega.

Kumagumi

Kumagumi is a Japanese clothing company founded by 2 old friends (Japanese & French) in 2015 in Kobe, Japan. Absolute fans of video games especially winning eleven, we started in 2008 selling Japanese imported consoles on eBay. Many others projects followed until the creation of KumaGumi in 2015.

“Kuma”(熊 / Bear) “Gumi”(組 Group) reminds us of our days, evenings, years (?!) spent playing videogames with friends hibernating like bears. We wanted a crocodile as a logo but it was already occupied, so we took the bear.

Our aim is to do quality retrogaming apparel you can actually wear in real life not just during events or conventions.

We also try to have the most environmentally friendly product possible (ok that’s a cliché now but anyway). That’s why our products are using only WATER based inked and done quasi LOCALLY (in the US for the USA/international orders, in Europe for the EU orders). NO CUSTOM FEES!
