Korea's Green Arcade Closes its Doors

The end of an era. Green Game Land (그린게임랜드) in Daerim, South Korea is shutting down. News of the closure was posted by Knee alongside a photo showing the arcade closing up and starting to haul all the cabinets out. For many years, Green Arcade has been the cultural Tekken mecca that produced the best players in the entire world and you can see it with walls filled with posters and trophies across many Tekken games. All the longstanding history from the arcade; dating back to ancient days of the earlier Tekkens, are now over. The future for Korean Tekken in arcades is now uncertain. Thanks for playing.
