New GameCenter CX Title in Development for 3DS

Posted by Tim Latshaw

"Kachou ON!!!"

GameCenter CX (also known outside Japan as Retro Game Master) is the chronicle of Kachou (“Chief”) Shinya Arino and his quest to defeat classic games of years gone by. According to Siliconera, the third game about this show about games has been announced as being in development. It's like gameception.

G.Rev, developers of the potentially westward-bound Kokuga, is working on this new GameCenter title for the 3DS. The original two games were published by Namco Bandai, with the first of these brought over to North America in 2009 as Retro Game Challenge for the DS. Disappointing sales, however, led to a choice not to localize the second game.

The third GameCenter CX title is currently slated for Japan only, but Arino’s global recognition has grown some since 2009. Would you be interested in challenging the great games challenger if this series is given another chance overseas?

Awesome. Hopefully it will follow the model of the Guild series and come West via the eShop.

I wish this thing would take off big time in the west. It kill me knowing that the second game is even better than the first and we will never play it. Hope this one doesn't go the same way...

Sounds good to me. Retro Game Challenge was pretty fun. The other day I was thinking it would be cool to have a 3DS version.

I doubt it'll come to the West unfortunately seeing as Retro Game Challenge 2 never came over, but this show is amazing! I've been watching it on my TV thanks to the Wii U, if you guys are interested in where you can find this show, check out

Maybe if they do release number 3 here, maybe they can include the second one in it as well.

This show is fantastic, and a real treat for Nintendo fans especially. Most of the episodes have been translated by now, I'd definitely recommend giving it a try.

Would be nice if we got it. The first game was as authentic a retro experience as you could possibly get.

It needs to release in the West and have decent box art this time. Seriously now...look at that picture in the game overview up there and tell me it wasn't bland enough to get overlooked by people who would have really liked the game. That's sure what happened when the game was new...I was working at GameStop at the time, and nobody ever looked at the thing, despite my best efforts to raise its visibility.

I'd buy it day one if it came over here, but I highly doubt it will.
I wonder if there's a possibility that Ninty would ever publish the game in the West; it does seem that they have a good relationship with Arino-san and the show in general.

YES!!!!! PLEASE bring it to the states!! love the show and game 1!! really wanted game 2. so sad it never made it here.

I love Game Center CX!

Hmm, they could try naming this game Game Center CX: Retro Game Master? I never liked the 'localized' name (mainly because Kotaku invented it )



edcomics said:

Arino-kachou in 3D! I'd like to see some of the ADs make an appearance. Not sure what type of game it would be. Maybe very much like the first. I think I'd like to see something a bit different.



Stuffgamer1 said:

@CanisWolfred: I've seen plenty of games that got COMPLETELY DIFFERENT box art when they were localized...XSeed had no excuse for taking this route. The game sold on name alone in Japan, so it didn't NEED a good box...but that simply wasn't the case out West.



SyFyTy said:

ABSOLUTELY I'd buy it, I was just playing Retro Game Challenge yesterday, very fun gameplay for retro graphics.. the unlying story makes it even better. Now I'll have to track game #2 that wasn't localized and see if I can't import a copy...



SyFyTy said:

MANY great DS games were lost in the mix due to [DS] title saturation; all coming out at the same time, someone loses recognition. PLEASE bring it on, PS I really enjoy X Seeds game choices too. I'm still buying DS titles I missed out on last time, and it's 2 years into the awesome 3ds lifetime too. Also I thought the Western box art was kind of iconic in a generic sort of way, I liked it...



Ralizah said:

Hopefully we might be able to get at least an eshop release of this? The first game was fantastic.



WiiLovePeace said:

As long as they don't change the voice acting, for this type of game it needs to be true to the TV show or else it will lose quite a bit of the fun, that's what Retro Game Challenge did wrong I think. I really hope someone considers bringing it over at least on the eShop, I'd absolutely love to play it, huge fan of GCCX

I just want to be able to purchase the DVD series.

Even DVD players are region locked.
