A Genuine Neo Geo Fan Made Arcades His Home
So Mr. Takaki, I hear that you're the biggest Neo Geo fans in the game industry?
(Takaki) I don't know if I'm the biggest or not, but I love the Neo Geo and I collect both the home cartridges and arcade boards. I have about 50 titles at home. Several years ago I was able to fix up my new house with a long held desire of mine: An arcade cabinet at the entrance!
(Takaki) It's been my dream to have an arcade cabinet in my house ever since I was a kid going to arcades. Up until now I'd been renting places and didn't have enough space to have one, but I was finally able to make it a reality. Though I'd like to get a change machine now too (Laughs)
