Two English subtitled episodes of Game Center CX will be at the New York Asian Film Festival starting this Saturday. One video has Shinya Arino playing the frustrating Famicom game, Atlantis No Nazo (Mystery of Atlantis). The other challenge is Katcho vs. Ghost and Goblins. If you are around the New York Metro area the show times are below.
MYSTERY OF ATLANTIS screens Saturday 6/21 at 11:00 am,
Wednesday 6/25 at 11:30 am, and Saturday 6/28 at noon
GHOSTS AND GOBLINS – screens Sunday 6/22 at 11:00 am,
Wednesday 7/2 at 11:30 am, and Sunday 6/29 at noon
If you’re not around New York you might not be missing much. The poster implies the NYAFF premiere is an introduction to the series, which is being renamed Retro Game Master internationally. The bottom left hand corner says, “Japan's hottest DVD! 'Retro Game Master' now available for all countries.” I would like to take this as confirmation that Fuji TV plans to sell subtitled DVDs in the future, but the poster has so much Engrish I can’t make a definitive call.
