・Background of the development of the new brand " GiGO "
While experiencing a global pandemic and expanding the lifestyle premised on non-contact, the thirst for a realistic experience is increasing. As a manifestation of our determination to continue to be an oasis that fulfills people's cravings with real entertainment, we have decided to start a "new founding" with a new brand.
・Meaning of GiGO
Get into the Gaming Oasis = Jump into the oasis of the game!
Regardless of the times, we believe that the value of a new arcade is to satisfy people's desires in a "real place" and continue to evolve. We will continue to cherish the 56-year history of SEGA's arcades and continue to be an oasis that meets the needs of people. The keyword that expresses this is "Get into the Gaming Oasis!", And the acronym is "GiGO".
