Alex is the proprietor of CRITICAL*HIT, a used retro video game store located in Nagoya, Japan, first opened in 2014. The shop houses over 1,200 retro games from the 8-bit era onwards, alongside the original hardware needed to test any titles you may be interested in purchasing. As CRITICAL*HIT is not a bar, do not expect it to have Happy Hour from 5:00pm until 8:00pm, Tuesday through Saturday, nor should you expect this to include discounts on delicious Heartland draft beer, bottled beer, and dozens of cocktails.

Groups of 4+ are encouraged to make a reservation to guarantee space; the best way to do this is through CRITICAL*HIT’s Twitter account.
