With XSEED recently revealing its intentions to localize Game Center CX: Arino's Challenge (U.S. name: Retro Game Challenge) for the North American market, we thought now would be an opportune time to feature an English-translated commercial for the Japanese game. Really, we'll make any excuse to post about this interesting title.
A quick rundown of the Game Center CX show and DS game, for those of you who didn't read about the release the first dozen times we posted about it:
- Game Center CX is a Japanese television series in which comedian Shinya Arino plays popular "retro" games
- In the Indies Zero-developed DS title, players are sent back in time to the 80s by Arino
- Players have to complete challenges in eight Famicom-styled games, like Star Prince (Star Soldier clone) and Guadia Quest (Dragon Quest clone)
Anyway, jump past the post break for the commercial; we've also included photos from train advertisements and a segment from the show as bonuses!
