    Make your way up Silent Hill, get the train at Kirby's Dream Land, zoom past Quake III Arena and get off at Arkham City.

    The imaginary map is loosely based on an area of Tokyo, a city that was home to many classic arcade games of the late 1970s and 80s.

    The map features districts dedicated to survival horror (Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Sweet Home), Beat 'em ups (Street fighter, Streets of Rage, Double Dragon) and Nintendo classics (Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Land, Luigi's Mansion) as well as many geeky 'in' references to entertain the most hardcore (or the oldest) of gamers.
