jp Densha de GO!!

Densha de GO!!Densha de GO!! is finally out more than one year after Taito announced it! 21 years after the first game, Densha de Go! returns to arcades. Taito wanted to create an immersive game thanks to the special cabinet and high quality graphics. And the result is worth the work accomplished. Square Enix provided overwhelming quality graphics, the game engine features various weather conditions and different seasons. The cabinet recreates the cab of a real train with authentic controls, three wide screens for the scenery and a touchscreen panel showing the various indicators of the control stand. For now, the Yamanote Line between Harajuku and Shinagawa is available but regular updates will add new routes from all the country. As in the previous works, the mission system will offer the full experience of a train operator's day including taking care of passengers and time management. The player has to operate safely while keeping speed limit, traffic lights etc... and then, he must stop exactly at the stop position. He gets more points and wins titles if he follows the rules.
