Gundam Park Fukuoka was announced September 2021 as a new Gundam-themed entertainment complex developed and managed by Bandai Namco Amusement Inc. and Bandai Spirits, based around the RX-93ff Nu Gundam at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA.
Located on the fourth floor of Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA in Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City, Gundam Park Fukuoka is stated to be the birth of a new Gundam entertainment complex where information, merchandise, sports entertainment, and amusement of the Gundam series are gathered in one place. The facility is set to open April 25, 2022.
The facility consists of three areas: Gundam Side-F, VS PARK with G, and namco.
Gundam Side-F is an area that provides various Gundam information and goods. The area is designed to look like a space colony, with a 10m x 6m monitor where guests can enjoy various visuals. Near the monitor there is a space for building model kits.
VS PARK with G is collaboration between the Gundamfranchise with the Bandai-Namco-operated VS PARK, a new sports facility where guests experience silly Japanese game show-esque activities. The area will provide more than twenty activities such as “Yokekiru” and “Nigekiru”.
Namco is an area where guests can enjoy arcade and crane games. The area will include games for all ages, capsule toys, prizes, Gundam Park Exclusive Taiko no Tatsujin game, as well as Gundam specific arcade games such as Mobile Suit Gundam Senjo no Kizuna II.
