First, Capcom put out the smash hit Phoenix Wright, a game where you get to play as a lawyer. Now, Capcom is taking another shot by putting out Kabu Toreida Shunji, a game where you play as…a stock trader! (Stock Trader Instant is the literal translation of the title) According to the announcement, you play the game as a young stock trader who is being lead by a mentor. The game has you competing against a rival over a period of several months to try and outdo them in the stock trades.
The game will feature a versus mode, and will be coming out June 7th in Japan and will retail for 5,040 yen. Now honestly, a stock trader game? With Trauma Center and Phoenix Wright already out, I won’t immediately discount this game, but I’ve got to laugh at it. At the very least, the game will provide a glossary for people who aren’t familiar with stock terms.
