D3 Publisher has a quirky city planning game set in Japan. It’s called Machi-ing Maker 3 and it includes real-life brands like Tsutaya and Uniqlo. You may have heard of this series before under the name Metropolismania. Natsume brought two of the PlayStation 2 games here before D3 acquired publishing rights.
In Machi-ing Maker 3 you can plot your own little version of Japan just like this.
See the Pizza-La and Uniqlo buildings? Those are on the list of 34 common Japanese companies integrated in the game. Players will also be able to place Circle K and Family Mart stores plus fast food shops like Mos Burger and Yoshinoya all in the interest of growing their city.
Machi-ing Maker 3 is scheduled to come out on January 28 for PSP.
