Nobody really knows how it came to be, but apparently September 12 is National Video Games Day. That’s actually tomorrow, just in case you want to celebrate. If you don’t have the time for that, then just head on over to the nearest Chuck E. Cheese as they have something in store for everyone.
Before we continue, you’re probably wondering how Chuck E. Cheese is going to celebrate, considering that there’s still a pandemic going on. Well, they actually have plans in place and you can watch a message from CEO David McKillips below:
Getting to their celebration of National Video Games Day, Chuck E. Cheese is hosting a game-a-thon streaming event called “Gaming for Good.” This event is expected to last for eight hours and is going to be held purely online via Twitch. As such, fans should be able to play and follow along on a journey to win crowns with other influencers on Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
The choice for Fall Guys is rather interesting, but not that all surprising. While there are a lot of more “famous” battle royale games, this one can be considered more child-friendly, especially when it comes to visuals.
Some of those taking part in the game-a-thon are also going to be celebrating their birthdays on their five-star Animal Crossing islands, which feature a Chuck E. Cheese virtual arcade and stage. It’s not all fun and games, as fans can click on a special donate button to help the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
You’re probably asking yourself, what if you want to celebrate in-store? First, you need to know if there is a location open near you. To check, just visit their location finder here.
If you do manage to visit one, there’s an offer of one hour of All You Can Play Games for $1 with any $20 purchase. With All You Can Play, gamers can play unlimited games during the play time purchased, with the ability to pause the time once. This promotion is valid until September 20, so that should give you some time if you aren’t free tomorrow.
