A month long festival celebrating the wide reaching influence Japan has had on computing and gaming - from the consoles of Nintendo, Sony and Sega to the computers of Fujitsu, Epson and MSX - and not forgetting the games of Capcom, Taito and Bandai.
Event lineups will be finalised soon, so please keep checking back, but events will include:
24th May: Rhythm Games - To get us in the mood, we'll start with a night of rhythm and music games with a Japanese theme - from Donkey Konga to Samba de Amigo (and many more!)
25th May: Retro Festival Japan - A chance to see the wide range of Japanese machines in our collection and from other collectors.
14th June: Retro Games Night - Japan! - All the best Japanese computers, consoles and games.
On normal museum opening days throughout the festival, we will have extra Japanese systems on display.
