About “Tokyo Attack"

Tokyo Attack is a collaboration of music game enthusiasts looking to give back to the community and share rare music games with people who normally never get a chance to play them. They all started off as private collectors, building collections of games that were closest to them. As time went on, they saw a demand for their games at a variety of conventions. Wanting to give back to the community in hopes to strengthen it, they decided to brand themselves and help spread their investment in this genre to rest of the public.

Join gamers from all over the country and celebrate the love and passion for electronic console gaming!
