For a very long time, Green Arcade has been the central point of South Korea’s Tekken scene. It has provided some of the highest level of game-play for Tekken over the years, and was often times the birthplace of important tech that would shape the scene. Unfortunately, that time has now passed:
NOTICE OF CLOSURE-
Dear Tekken community,
We are sad to announce that starting today, Green Arcade is officially closed for business.
The owners have come to a decision to retire due to age. We truly want to thank everyone for their support and love for the arcade.

Despite being home to the likes of international stars like NIN and Knee, the arcade struggled to stay afloat in a post-console release world, having cited a lack of revenue and attendance — both due to Tekken 7 Season 2 and DLC being console-exclusive. But it seems that the aging management has brought about the closure at last.
