The year was 1981. The place was an arcade game where many have spent their time only to perish to its fate. Few were able to challenge and put up a fight. But the time has passed and many gave up and forgotten their need to play, compete, and the attempt to conquer. Those gamers tried to move on, but it remembered… it’s once laughter at your defeat grew in rage. But someway…somehow it found a way. That anger grew and transformed into something that you possibly cannot handle. You thought you survived it all, it’s about to show you what you have forgotten. But you must fight…

You will need to train…but what is it you are training for? Get ready…
