You might remember seeing photos of a North Korean arcade when they first surfaced online in 2008. Some cabinets looked ancient!

In 2013, a new arcade apparently opened on the Rungna Islet in Pyongyang, the country’s capital.

Website Arcade Heroes recently dug up this clip titled “Playing Video Games in Pyongyang, North Korea”. It dates from 2013 and appears to show the Rungna Islet arcade. It’s hard to tell, though.

For those keeping tally, it does appear that Sega’s Let’s Go Jungle is playable in Pyongyang.

For some, at least.
