Densha de GO! Hashirō Yamanote-sen
PlayStation®4 Ι Genre: Let’s go by train!
From Shinagawa to Akabane, this was the first route of the Yamanote Line in 1885. For 18 years this primordial train line connected these two terminals passing through Meguro, Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Meguro; when during the spring of 1903, the connection between Ikebukuro and Tabata was added to the line, starting to give the shape to the rail circle that millions of people use daily.
The full circle was completed in 1925, just two years after the Great Kantō Earthquake, while its iconic green trains appeared 38 years later, in 1963, and they connect the three busiest stations of the world: Shinjuku, Shibuya & Ikebukuro. Due to this fact, the Yamanote Line is not only a train line; it is a real icon who makes Tokyo what it is. Millions of people every day get on it for commuting, tourism, and also for artistic reasons; in dozens of anime, manga, movies, and video games you may find the green trains, from Doraemon to Death Note passing through Hachi: A Dog’s Tale.
But there is only one series that allow us to conduct them, the super iconic Densha de GO!
The roots of the first (and still the greatest) train conduct simulation go back to 1996 when its huge cabinet made its appearance in the best Japanese arcades. Including the Yamanote Line, the Tōkaidō Line, the Keihin-Tōhoku Line, and the San’in Main Line; the first Densha de GO! has paved the rails to something never seen before. With 15 different games; we can say that practically all the most important train lines of Japan have been recreated for the joy of millions of players worldwide. Finally this week the 16th installment will depart to reach PlayStation 4.
