Cocktails, Karaoke and Japanese games... #Retrotainment
5 February 2014, London
Established in June 2013, REZtron is a pop-up Japanese retrogaming entertainment brand (or retrotainment!) that was inspired by the fusion of 80's chic,Japanese otaku culture and retro games from the 80s and 90s.
The concept behind REZtron came to mind by an ex games industry exec who first witnessed the popularity of a similar form of entertainment on a trip to Tokyo in 2002.
"The interest for games and consoles of yesteryears are a growing popularity these days amongst the 25-40 year old demographic, especially when it comes to the IPs and consoles of a certain Japanese gaming legend who is sadly no longer in the console race."
The aim of REZtron is to fulfill the needs of these nostalgic 'retrogaming otakus’ on a monthly basis with these retro games but in a social environment, with the addition of drinks, tournaments and karaoke thrown in.
We'll be warming up the year with legendary games on all four generation of SEGA consoles (Master System,Mega Drive,Saturn,Dreamcast)
Legendary games including Golden Axe,R-Type,Streets of Rage 2,Alien Storm,Sonic 2, Shinobi III, 4- player Micro Machines 2,Virtua Cop,SEGA Rally,House of the Dead 2,Virtua Fighter 2,Typing of the Dead,Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and many more...
