Meet the student taking the Video Game Exams

The aspect of Bokura no TV Game Kentei (Our Video Game Exams) that doesn't get much attention is the metagame -- the original bits that connect all the retrogaming experiences together. New screens offer us a look at this area of the game, which is vaguely RPG-like -- Pico, a sentient arcade machine receives challenges from NPCs in a nostalgic-looking side-scrolling environment, and that's how the games are distributed. Later, you can replay these in Pico's home.

In addition to images of Pico's quest (which is also basically the menu), as you would expect, there are lots of screens of old arcade and Famicom games to look at.
