The North Adams first arcade since the long-closed Dream Machine is expected to open in early January.
The Planning Board on Monday evening approved the application by owners Shaun Richard and Christopher Horsfall to open Immersion Gaming Center at 350 State Road.
Richard said the gaming center would offer a variety of new and older types of video and arcade gaming devices.
They are planning for hours of 10 to 10 seven days a week, which led to questions about how much time younger people would be spending in the arcade.
Because of the novel coronavirus protocols, the building would be limited to 40 percent capacity or 10 people, pending any changes by the time it opens, and machines and seats would be regularly sanitized in between use, the owners said, and they are considering markings on the floor to assist in social distancing.
