Tokyo Attack!

Tokyo Attack is a collaboration of music game enthusiasts looking to give back to the community and share rare music games with people who will normally never get a chance to play them. We all started off as private collectors, building a collection of the games that were closest to us. As time went on, we saw a demand for our games at a variety of conventions and noticed the machines being currently supplied were not always in the best of conditions. Wanting to give back to the community in hopes to strengthen it, we decided to brand ourselves and help spread our investment into this genre to rest of the public.
