Renowned Japanese Retro Gaming Store- Super Potato- Is Finally Going International

When it comes retro gaming, the Japanese store known as Super Potato is known as an amazing source of so many legendary games for consoles such as the Sega Saturn, the Dreamcast and more. In fact, it is not just seen as a store but also a museum of sorts, housing relics of the past dating back to the first years of video games. Super Potato has eight stores in Japan- the main, three floored stored being in Akihabara in Tokyo and a huge tourist trap- but they are now expanding their business across the world with the recent opening their very first international eBay store.

This is a huge leap for Super Potato as a business as it will now allow customers from across the world to engage in their wide selection of retro games as well as anime and manga products. They also opened a brand new Twitter account– alongside their official Japanese Twitter– recently which has already amassed over a thousand followers within a few days. On this account, they tweeted out to let fans across the globe know that they will be posting content for us international fans as well as for their Japanese audience. This is great news for international fans of retro games as well as those who know of Super Potato’s legendary status but don’t have the funds to make the trip to Akihabara to make the trip to the main store themselves. If you’re a fan of old-school gaming, make sure to check out that new eBay store on the link here as well as their new Twitter account here.
