Back in 2006, we were stunned to meet and see Kors K perform live at local arcade, Tokyo Game Action. For us, it was one of the first times an underground Japanese artist came out and spent quality time with the American music game community. We even got a boss song out of it!
Over a decade later, we’re still stuck on grooves and games. We wanted to keep that exposure and community involvement going, so in 2015, we set out to put on a show with Japanese and other international artists in our home region of New England. After putting on a fantastic show with Technorch in Boston, we knew we had to keep this event a staple in the music and gaming communities.
From this we formed System Arcadia: a place for anyone to celebrate the music, or a place for people to focus on the games, but always a place to belong and be accepted.
In 2015, when we ran our first show with Technorch, we had a simple goal of providing a unique experience to a niche rhythm game community—and we delivered. Since that show, we’ve expanded this concept: booking musicians featured in video games into club and dancing events with the intent of bring their fans one step closer to the producers they adore from afar.
Thanks to our deep roots in the rhythm game scene, we have a special interest in producers from video games. We’re looking to shatter the divide these two forms of entertainment provide into one immersive experience that leaves our community happy and wanting more.
System Arcadia brings quality products to you in the form of video game and live music events. We not only work with arcade machines, we partner with and help represent the producers who write music for those games.
We believe in building memories that last forever.
Thank you to all those that have helped us get where we are today!
