    Came across this on the PS Store this morning:



    I've been wanting a Japanese rail sim, but this doesn't look so hot and seems a bit overpriced. Curious if anyone here has played it.

    This video looks to be from the PS4 version:



    It's all FMV, so I'm guessing no camera control or anything. Weird.

    I saw LOADS of passengers on a station platform so it must be from a PS5. ;):D

    I used to play a web based game like this that was essentially controlling the playback speed of a cab ride video for the graphics. It was lower resolution but this looks like it’s an updated version of the same game.

    Slightly interesting fact. I travelled on that line every day for 10 days when on holiday in Kyoto. Ah, the memories.

    Yeah, I did a bit of research and apparently these types of Japanese FMV rail sims have existed at least since the PS2 days. Kinda interesting, but the janky frame rate puts me off.

    I could probably sink some time into this, but man... that price. Japanese Rail Sim or Mass Effect Trilogy? Decisions, decisions...
