This winter Hudson plans to release Hataraku Hito (Working Person, but Hudson translated the title as Hardworking People) in Japan and it’s another mini-game collection. Hataraku Hito differentiates itself by being a collection of 50 real life jobs instead of zany Carnival Games. Hudson Japan is developing Hataraku Hito in Japan so there are local jobs like being in charge of a Yakitori stand. You can also pick vegetables and be an “interpreter”. The interpreter game is pictured here and it has nothing to do with translating stuff, all you need to do is input a series of button commands. A game about emulating menial jobs didn’t grab me right away, but the cute art style and potential diversity makes Hataraku Hito worth keeping an eye on.
