    Hello! We currently have a small group here in Beijing. During the sf4 "days" we went almost weekly to the arcades where there were plenty of Chinese players. I'm assuming that it must be relatively the same in Shanghai too. A lot of Chinese are really into these kind of games so I don't think you will have a problem finding people as long as there are arcades.

    Hey hlxino! Welcome to Shanghai!

    The arcade scene for fighting games here is quite good actually, hit me up when you come over and I'll show you around sometime. The makeup here is mostly SF4, KOF '98 Ultimate Match, KOF '02 Unlimited Match (HK Version), with a tiny number of 3S and BBCS machines scattered about. That being said, there are about 3 main fighting game arcades where the skill is pretty evenly divided up, with one in particular where all Shanghai pros play, you see a lot of the Beijing pros here too when they're in town.

    I've been meaning to put up a Shanghai arcade list, I'll do it once I get a new camera and get out and take some pictures. There's actually a few arcades that carry legit Japanese SF4 boards and a lot of smaller ones that just hook up a console or PC inside a cabinet, but at least there's always people to play with and super cheap too. I haven't seen SSF4 in any of these places yet, but it's bound to happen soon.

    Shanghai is supposed to be the biggst mainland scene (or after HK) for ac games, its also the only place outside of Japan where there is a Last blade 2 scene right? That alone would be pretty amazing.

    Have any of you guys been to Kunshan by any chance? Its 10 mins by D-train, I'll be moving there in a few months.

    Is there any other arcade that has sf4 in shanghai besides the one at zhengyang? Preferably in the pudong area because that is where I am now.

    Being a Versus Fighting Addict i am spending a lots of time in the Arcade here such as Lie-Huo on Nanjing Xi Lu/ Shaanxi Lu, Lu Gong on Xujiahui Lu....

    I used to be one of the top Tekken player in France when Tekken 4 came out and did practice with some of the best Shanghainese players such as xBw, Ning, Fang Fang... on Tekken 5 !

    Anyway Tekken 6 has been out for a while and let's say i am not really keen on it lol

    So i moved to Street Fighter 4 playing at a very basic level. I have just bought SSF IV on PS3 on the arcade version is not gonna be released before July Or August....

    So i am looking for players to train at home and for sure have fun as well.

    Hi everyone!
    I'm just another SF4 player in Shanghai.
    Been going a lot lately at the Guangyang Lu Arcade, and the level is pretty high.
    It would be nice to play against other foreigners, so PM me for a possible meet-up !

    You'd better go to the arcade on n° 315 Guan Yuan Road, near Xujiahui. Building is on the right, 6 SF4 cabinets, best level in Shanghai.

    Hey guys,

    I went to the arcades in West Guang Yuan Road yesterday. 6 Lingbergh SF4 cabinets, back to back. I played for 3 hours non stop on the same cabinet. Level was mixed, from beginners to 15-hits-combo-ers. All in all it cost me 20RMB, so about 2? for around 50 coins.

    The arcade center is pretty big, and when it comes to VS fighting you can find pretty much everthing you want: kof, sf, tekken, sc, vf etc.

    I am in shanghai till early september for work so I'll guess I'll go there quite often, mainly during the week starting from 8PM.

    If you want to say Hi, I am a laowai, have long brown hair and a beard. And my name is Max. And I play Boxer.
  • DynickstyDynicksty Joined: Posts: 562
    I leave Monday afternoon and I want to play Super!!! btw who knows the name of the Shanghai Zangief player who goes to either lie huo or xu jia hui?

    @Dayman - it was nice to meet you! I'm sorry I couldn't really play that long and I rushed our matches but my touring family was waiting for me outside =[.

    Hopefully we can play a little bit of super or at least share strategy with each other! good games!

    hey guys, i'm a canadian dude teaching english in seoul and i'm going to shanghai for vacation for like a week prolly next week. i'm wondering if i should bring my xbox 360 and try to get some local competition for ssf4

    skill level wise, i doubt i'll be the best. actually i know i won't be the best, but i hopefully can give the top players a few tough matches. the competition in south korea is fucking amazing

    i doubt i can hit up any arcades but how's the scene on Xbox live? or does everyone just log onto japan's network?
    To be the greatest...

    I highly recommend that you go to zhengyang because it's a great arcade and that's where their top players go AFAIK.
  • CreaznCreazn Joined: Posts: 22
    Today I went to Xujiahui and it was kinda disappointing. I was looking around for the arcade and couldnt find anything till I got to the Metro City. There is a SEGA arcade. Very disappointing and there were only two cabs and noone playing. Thereby the stick was almost broken, couldnt DP properly.. I would like to know where Zhengyang is and how to get there, if anyone can help me it would be great!
  • DynickstyDynicksty Joined: Posts: 562
    IIRC the Xujiahui station is the closest to zhengyang and the arcade is on West Guang Yang Road. The address for every arcade is on the first page of the thread.

    In ShangHai you can't find places by looking around ^^ You need the exact address. As said previously, the addresses are on the first page. There are 6 SF4 cabs and very good level at ZhengYang, so it's definately the best place to go.
  • CreaznCreazn Joined: Posts: 22
    Yea thanx to gou1 I found the Zhengyuan arcade with the 6 cabs. It was pretty nice. In the beginning I was at another game hall, dont really know its name but its also in guanyuan xi lu, at the beginning of the street, next to a big mall with KTV lights. Its on the sixth floor and has 4 cabs. Two of the four cabs you can pick all sf4 characters, pretty strange. It also had an xbox account. In the end only the competition was little bit less amusing than Zhengyuan.

    i m going to be in shanghai the 1st of february (2010). my plane will land in the afternoon, and i 'd like to play in some arcades while i'm there. I will leave on the 2nd of february,so just one day.
    I dont play capcom games (i used to play sf2ce a lot but not anymore), i just play kof games. I already asked on kofunion about arcades that own kof games, but i want to ask also here (if anyone of u lives in shanghai of course). Any tips?
    Moreover i might need help for a train ticket. As u know during my staying there it will be guonian (chinese new year) and take train tickets will be impossible for me. I tell u the situation:
    i will arrive in Shanghai on the 1st of Feb. ,spend the night there. Then i have to leave to Jinhua on the 2nd of Feb. Well, i know that i cant buy the train ticket on the day of my arrival due to the guonian.. so i would need help about that. If anyone is willing to help me , i will treat him/her to a beer/mian eheh
    Hope somebody could help me (for both questions (arcades/ticket)). Thx :)

    Check out ??, they have like a million KOF setups... well, pretty much every arcade does.

    By the way I'm going to be settling in Kunshan (like twenty-thirty minutes outside of Shanghai) on the 23rd of this month, and I will very probably be working IN Shanghai, so I hope I'll be able to meet the rest of you guys soon :)

    I may be staying in Shanghai for a couple weeks this summer. Although that is a long time from now, so machines may have been updated/removed by then, can anyone by any chance give a breakdown of what music games (DDR, Pump It Up, jubeat, REFLEC BEAT, DJMAX Technika, GuitarFreaks/Drummania, Taiko, etc.) there are?

    (edit: I don't need an exact breakdown by any means, but it'd be nice to know which arcades, if any, actually stay current with music games. i'd ask on a music-related forum but bemanistyle's Asia forum is completely dead..)
  • DaymanDayman Joined: Posts: 14
    As far as i know, Zheng Yang should be relocated outside of shanghai in a couple of months, but right now you can find one DDR, 6 Taikos and 3 or 4 other musical games (DJ stuffs).
    Lie Huo has 2 Taiko machines, one DDR, about 4 DJ stuffs.
    For the others, i'm quite sure you can find musical games in all of them, but i never saw any GuitarFreaks or Drummania in Shanghai.

    Also, if you're not too much into fighting games, you can check the Sega arcades in People's Square (New World City building, 7th Floor), lots of choice, around 8 different Taiko versions, etc.

    Hey Guys, Ive been living in Shanghai for a few months now, Im planning to stay here for quite a while. Anyways Ive been to some arcades, lately most of the time in Sichuan Bei Lu, because they have SSF4. Ive also brought my PS3 with me but cannot find enough good online competitors and often there is lag. If some ppl want to meet up in an Arcade or at Home to have some matches and some fun, then hit me up. PM me! Or e-mail me if its easier, ugehan@hotmail.com
