Tired Of Shoot-em-Ups With Precise Timing? Game Center CX 3 Has Something For You



Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 is all about the retro, all the time. The latest game reveal for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS retro-inspired title is called Zoliates. A top-down, scrolling fighter game, it’s a hat-tip to originals such as now-defunct developer Hudson’s Star Soldier back when gaming was in its infancy.


Sure, the genre’s now developed its way to become mostly involved in bullet-dodging craziness like seminal hit Ikaruga, but every now and then I don’t want to have to deal with all that stress of making the perfect micro-frame adjustment. I just want to shoot things with absurdly impractical and huge lasers coming out of my I-can’t-believe-it’s-that-tiny spaceship. And soon, I’ll be able to do just that.

For retro fans, this game is looking to be getting better and better. It’ll be available January 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan.
