Tournament and Events
Arcade 92 is the place where friendships are forged and where friendships are tested. We will hold a regular tournament schedule to build on an already vibrant gaming community. Here is a little glimpse at the tournaments we will be offering at Arcade 92:
- Retro Arcade Tournaments
- eSports PlayStation Tournaments
- Modern Arcade Tournaments
- Pinball Tournaments
- Retro Console Tournaments
Retro Arcade Tournaments: At Arcade 92 we want to think past the idea of the high score. Some games like Asteroids, Pacman and Galaga don’t really have an ending so whoever gets the highest score wins. But what about playing Super Mario Brothers and seeing who can save the princess the fastest? Speed runs are a unique way for you to challenge your friends at retro arcade games. If whopping up on your friends is not for you then we have cooperative games where you have to work together to beat the game. Classics from the 1990’s like Rampage World Tour, X-Men, the Simpsons, Gauntlet 2 or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Speaking of the 90’s, we saw some of the best competitive games hit the arcades. We will have plenty of tournaments on Street Fighter 2: Hyper Turbo Championship Edition, Mortal Kombat 1, Mortal Kombat 2 and Mortal Kombat 3, Tekken 3, and Virtua Fighter.
eSports PlayStation and Switch Tournaments: Arcade 92 will be like a living museum taking you on a journey from the gaming from the late 1970’s and up to the latest PlayStation or Nintendo Switch game and all point in between. Arcade 92 will regularly have tournaments with Fortnite, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, Super Smash Brothers and many more. Battle Royale games are so popular right now and we will stay on the leading edge of competitive gaming in our modern gaming lounge. If Battle Royale is not your thing, then take a shot at modern gaming speed runs? How fast can you beat Dr. Wiley in Mega Man 11, team Race on Mario Kart 8, or get the highest score in Mario Odyssey? If beat em’ ups are more your thing we will have the hyper violent Mortal Kombat 11 and Street Fighter 5 to get your competitive fix. Arcade 92 is a video arcade that will be the perfect blend of the old school and the new. Arcade 92’s modern gaming lounge consists of over a dozen private stations complete with a 50 inch monitor and headphone set. Arcade 92 will host eSports tournaments with popular games such; Fortnite, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, Super Smash Brothers, Pokken DX, Tetris 99, Mortal Kombat 11, Street fighter 5 and many more. We are decked out with PlayStation systems as well as Nintendo Switch to bring you the latest and greatest in Battle Royale, Competitive and cooperative play.
Modern Arcade Tournaments: We see Arcade 92 as a living museum with video arcades from the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, but as mentioned above, we fully embrace the modern gaming community as well. This may come as a shock but did you know that there are a few arcade machines being built today?! No I don’t just mean the overprices multicades–I mean brand spanking new innovative arcade games. Arcade 92 will host Killer Queen tournaments as well as Cosmotron tournaments on a very regular basis. The 10 player Killer Queen is an intense game that demands cooperative play, communication, leadership and the ability to change adapt on a second’s notice. Come as a group of 5 or jump in with an incomplete team and be ready to multitask your way to victory. Cosmotrons is a 4 player competitive or cooperative game that is a blend of old school Asteroids, Berzerk, Lunar Lander, Super Off Road, and Street Fighter. You kind of have to just see it to believe it!
Pinball Tournaments: For all you gamers, if you have not given pinball a shot, then you are missing out. With 90’s themed Pinballs such as Terminator 2: Judgment day and Austin Powers and modern pinball such as Total Nuclear Annihilation and Attack from Mars reboot we have a wide variety of Pinballs. Expect to see frequent pinball competitions at Arcade 92 for competitive play but also some cooperative play options. Arcade 92 will have a full line up of pinball to keep you flipping all night.
Retro Console Tournaments: Let’s a go! Come on up to the retro console bar and 2 player controllers are ready for you to play all the classics on NES Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Atari and PlayStation One. We will host a regular tournament schedule for these classic consoles. Speedrun Super Mario Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, and F-Zero Futuristic racing. Go for the high score in Atari Asteroids or go head to head on Tekken 3. The possibilities are endless with classic consoles with hundreds of games to choose from!
Events on the Historic McKinney Square: We are proud to be in the new entertainment district on the McKinney Square, or as it might be soon known, the McKinney rectangle because of its rapid growth. The McKinney square has long been known for their special events and at Arcade 92, we are ready to jump in and open our door during these special events. We might be a little biased but we believe there is no better place than Arcade 92 for the most fun in McKinney. Be on the lookout for Arcade 92 synchronizing with long held traditional events on the square. How about on classic cars on the square we run a Mario Kart 8 tournament? Come to Arcade 92 for the bar crawl (although you may never leave our barcade). Captain America speed run for the Red White and Boom Parade. Arcade 92 will be ready for every event on the square including Arts in bloom, Krewe of Barkus, McKinney Oktoberfest, Home for the Holidays Christmas and many more!
