THE ARCADE is a quarterly shopping event within the virtual world Second Life.
The shopping experience puts an inventive spin on Japan’s gacha craze, where
shoppers play through random lineups, hoping to win collectibles of varying rarity.
In Japan, gachas are coin-operated vending machines; Shoppers pull a crank and out pops a random prize (usually a collectible toy, sometimes part of a complete set.) Unlike the toy vending machines we’re used to in the West, gacha prizes aren’t cheap throwaways; Prizes are high-quality, often limited edition and popular among collectors of all ages.
