It’s A Walk Down Memory Lane In Game Center CX 3

By Eugene . November 25, 2013 . 12:29pm

And I mean that literally. Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 has players helping Arino out as he clears up his memory by completing gaming challenges. While clearing events, you’ll be able to wander around the game’s town and talk to various characters.


Time progresses in the main story though as events are cleared and things might change drastically. Old candy stores might give way to arcade centers as time lapses, but you won’t be able to enter these as the mid-80s apparently banned students from entering. Go past the ‘80s and department stores with arcade machines and game specialty stores pop up instead!


There’s even a plastic figurine shop for when Gundam began to get popular alongside other forms of plastic modeling kits.

    I would do dirty, dirty things to facilitate this game’s localization.

  • idrawrobots

    I really wished this looked more like attack of the Friday night monsters. The people are so bad looking even compared to the first two games.

    • Attack of the Friday Monsters had awesome art direction. So very Japanese, too.

  • Izzy Miyake

    While not a big fan of how the characters look, I am DOWN for a localization of this.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    I’d like to see this game come out in the US as well.

  • This game is even more enculturated in Japan than the first and second, which is awesome and part of the charm, but it would make it even harder to localize. Not that anyone was going to localize it anyway. :( I wish Namco would just do a rough English translation and throw it up on the eShops. Don’t localize it. The Japaneseness is part of its charm.
