A £2.5m national video game centre is to open in Nottingham in March next year on Carlton Street.
As reported by the Nottingham Post, the National Videogame Arcade will include over 12,000 objects on display across five floors, exhibition space, educational facilities, as well as acting as a research and learning hub.
The centre will be run by GameCity, and has backing from Nottingham City Council, Nottingham Trent University and the Nottingham Technology Grant Fund.
“Digital design and games development are growing industries for the city,” said councillor Nick McDonald.
“A network of entrepreneurial tech start-ups based around the Creative Quarter and linked through events and business connections makes the city a hotbed of activity in the digital sector, and the decision to locate the National Videogame Arcade in the city cements the importance of this creative ecosystem.”
