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, and the USA 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. Our goal is to continue Austin’s decades-long tradition of community-based video arcades and competitive gaming.
We welcome gamers of all ages!

2018 will mark Arcade UFO's 10th anniversary, and we’re starting the year off strong with plenty of new games! SFV:AE and Season 3, along with Dragonball FighterZ are now on all setups, and we’ll be hosting SFV weeklies every Friday! Be sure to follow on facebook for the latest information about events. There's also a second Jubeat cabinet now! Both have been updated to the latest version and support versus play between the two machines.
But… The addition we’re most excited about is Pump It Up PRIME 2! Pump It Up is a Korean dance game, and is one of the most popular music games in the world, with dedicated fans in Korea, the Americas, and SEA. PRIME 2 is the latest version of the game, supporting online leaderboards, user profiles, and regular music additions through online updates. We have “AM PASS” cards for sale so players can make full use of all the online features! Come check it out:
Keep an eye out for more announcements soon, we want to make this a year to remember. And Thank You for Playing.

We’ve re-arranged the back room, and the Delta cabs are now in a head-to-head layout once again. It feels like old times! We’ve also brought in a few more cabinets: Driller G and Soul Calibur 2 are now on the floor too! There are more additions and announcements coming, stay tuned!

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.

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!
