In celebration of the TV show’s 10 year anniversary, Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 for Nintendo 3DS will feature several mini-games with an Arino twist on older NES games. In the latest update on the game, we get a look at a game that appears to be inspired by SNK’s Crystalis, and a couple of Game & Watch-type titles.

 

Negima Kingdom will be the first of its kind in the Game Center CX game series, where you assume the role of a toy soldier, who must defeat enemies, solve puzzles, and take on dungeons in order to save the princess.

The soldier will have access to special attacks, bombs and other weapons, as he advances through different areas while defeating foes. The special attacks are done by charging your power to unleash a devastating attack.

One of the game’s unique systems allows you to use one of your dead bodies as a shield from incoming enemy fire.Bombs can be used in The Legend of Zelda-like fashion, to find secret rooms wherever there are cracked walls.

There will be various crystals throughout your adventure, used for saving the game.

There will also be some boss fights, such as the one against the tank, shown above. This one seems to have some sort of weak spot found on the yellow part of its back. By continuously hitting it, you can do huge damage, and eventually blow it up.

Next up is an old-school Game & Watch style action game called Sword Man, that involves using your ninja skills to reach the goal and get the treasure.

Once you start the game, enemies will start throwing everything they got to hit you, and getting hit by anything in these kind of games, has never done any good.

There will be a mobster-looking boss waiting for you on top, who’ll bet he last thing getting in your way from achieving glory. Take him out and on to the next stage!

Cheese Tunnel has you playing as a pesky mouse whose goal is to get himself a piece of cheese on the right-side of the screen.

The only problem for you is that there will be cats doing everything they can to get their paws on you. The game starts out nice and slow, but eventually gets more hectic with the added cat paws. Getting caught three times will result in a game over.

 

Game Center CX: Arino in Disctrict 3 will be coming out in Japan on January 23, for Nintendo 3DS.

    This looks glorious.

    The fact that we didn’t get RGC2 and probably this as well is a travesty. :(

    I need to stop looking at the Game Center CX posts. I totally get that sales were awful and Xseed won’t be localizing it, but still…

      The fact that there are so few comments on the articles is telling, too. :( :( :(
