Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburbs #1 (3DS eShop)

Yes, that's actually the title

Every once in a while you play one of those games where it just makes you ask, "Why?" This isn't necessarily because the game is bad, as such, but occasionally one wonders what compelled the developer to make a game so decidedly perplexing.

We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Faster As It Would Impact New Development, Says Iwata

"Development of Virtual Console titles require detailed manual work"

My Zoo Vet Practice 3D (3DS eShop)

My Zoophobia 3D

It's fair to say that we get our fair share of games to review over here at Nintendo Life that don't necessarily appeal to our core audience of readers.
