What's a Japanese video game console release like without exotic Japanese games? From the makers of the popular Densha de Go! series comes the very first PlayStation3™ train simulation game -- Railfan.

The game emphasizes on realism and allows you to drive trains in three different locations, including Chicago's brown line, part of Tokyo's JR system and Osaka. Your task in the game is simply, you need to run the train properly and make sure to stop on time at each station. Controls are pretty simple as well, you only need to control the train's throttle.

Railfan differs from other train simulation games mainly by its graphics. The game's graphics are displayed by a streaming video of the actual train lines. The camera shakes to give you the feeling of a moving train and cut-scenes will display additional overhead views of the train.

If you are among those few with a PlayStation3™ console out there at the moment and are looking for something unique, then give Taito's Railfan a try. For sure plenty of further train sim games are about to follow, but Railfan is the first one and only one available at the moment. In stock today at US$ 69.90 only.
