Welcome to Arcade UFO

Established in 2008, Arcade UFO is Austin’s premiere Japanese-style Game Center! Fighting and Music Games are our specialty.

Our goal is to bring you the newest and most interesting arcade titles from Japan, Korea, the USA and other countries while providing a haven for the fighting game, music game and racing game communities.

At the same time, we respect the origin of arcades and always try to feature a few great classic games with our limited space.

We opened Arcade UFO to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Einstein’s Arcade (R.I.P.). Our goal is to continue Austin’s decades-long tradition of community-based video arcades and competitive gaming.

We welcome gamers of all ages!

It’s about time we refreshed the website! The games page has been updated and now has a complete listing of games on location at the arcade, including our library of console games! We will be keeping the list of games up to date as we adjust and expand our lineup in the coming months, and post major updates here on the news feed. Follow us on facebook for more updates, and details about our tournaments!

Arcade UFO: Under Fresh Ownership

Posted on: September 9, 2017

Arcade UFO is now under new ownership! We are all eagerly looking forward to serving the Austin gaming community, and maintaining UFO’s reputation as the place to be for fighting and rhythm game players in central Texas. There are lots of changes and new additions in the works! Be sure to follow us for updates as we continue with repairs and expand our lineup!

We would also like to thank the previous owners for the hard work and dedication that it took to get UFO off the ground, and give it a name in the US arcade scene. Without their passion the arcade could not be what it is today. UFO has come a long way in its first nine years of operation, and we can’t wait to see what’s next!
