Takara Tomy, the Japanese toy company behind the popular Beyblade franchise, announced that they will open a Beyblade-themed bar in in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, in January 2017 to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the series.
Since the series was first launched in 1999, the move targets those early fans that are probably now somewhere in their twenties. Of course, visitors will be able to play their favorite game and participate in tournaments.
More info will be uploaded on the official website for the newest Beyblade series, Beyblade Burst, in December.
