Railfan, the Train Simulator on PS3

A Train Simulator, the kind of game that is very popular in Japan and that you’ll never see in your country, unless you import it !

This game is not the first to see the light of day, previous and other versions have been made for the Dreamcast, PS2, PSP or even the Nintendo Wii !
If you’ve never heard of it, the game puts you in the shoes of a train driver, on one of the many railways existing in Japan.

But don’t think that the whole country has been covered, you’ll be able to “cruise” from Kyoto to Osaka on the Keihan Line and from Mitaka to Tokyo on the Chuo Line but a little bonus has been added: the Chicago metro !

The amazing thing about this game is that it is really unique, especially for us, and very true to life because it was made thanks to hours and hours of video shootings. The result is: everything you see around you while driving the train is real and in HD glory…this turns the experience into a little bit more than just a game.

Some pictures:




A new game is already on its way and should be released this summer , here’s a screenshot of this version which will take you from Taipei to Kaohsiung (Taiwan):

Go check your game shop for some imports
