Link Cable Lounge

Need to take a load off your feet and relax? The Link Cable Lounge is the place to play some low-key* multiplayer games or just hang out and read some retro gaming magazines. You can also play with some of our classic Tiger Handhelds, original Gameboys with link cables for some social gaming, and PacMan Vs for Gamecube/Gameboy Advance! And if you’ve got a Switch, the Link Cable Lounge is the place to find pick-up multiplayer games!

*For the purpose of the Link Cable Lounge, excitedly screaming at Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch is considered “low-key”.
