1980 all over again: Retro Game Challenge sequel screens

Retro Game Challenge’s sequel is coming to the Japanese DS in February of next year, but Famitsu has some screenshots from the game now. 

The whole games within a game concept is pretty cool, especially when they were designed to emulate classic titles of our youth. Well, some of our youths, anyway. Game Center CX: Arino no Chosenjo 2 goes beyond the awesome 8-bit selections/emulations of its predecessor, even going puke green with an emulation of the original Game Boy version of Tetris.

Another game within the screenshots on Famitsu looks like a cross between Pac-Man and Gauntlet. There’s a Kung-Fu rip-off and a murder mystery, and the included side-scrolling platformer looks like something I’ve played before. That was probably the point, though.

This game’s predecessor, Retro Game Challenge, is on its way to the US, thanks to XSEED.
