Retro Game Challenge Nintendo DS
In the game, the player controls a boy or girl who plays retro games in order to appease the Demon Arino (based on the TV show’s host Shinya Arino). The Demon Arino gives four challenges to complete for each game.
Each game is original but with graphics, sound, and game-play elements which make it look old or retro. Many of them are similar in both gameplay and appearance to real Famicom games. They come with fully illustrated manuals.
Occasionally there will be a fake gaming magazine, Game Fan Magazine, that has articles about the games, rankings (with other fictional games named), and “game advice” from GameCenter CX ADs who have appeared over the seasons of the TV show. In the case of the North American version, the pseudonyms of journalists better known in English-speaking countries were used.
Some parts of the various games are inspired by actual challenges that Arino has faced in his TV episodes. For example, the bonus character in the second half of stage 1 of “Star Prince” is taken from his attempt to get bonus points from playing Star Force in season 1. The various “special” continue tricks (like in Haggle Man) come from the several instances in which Arino must use these features to complete tasks on the show. Even the ending to the game pulls a trick from Takeshi no Chōsenjō from season 1.
