Artdink announced today that the newest game of the long-running A-Train series has a release date.
The game, titled “A-Ressha Deikou Hajimaru Kankou Keikaku” will launch in Japan on March 12, 2021.
While there is no mention of a western release, it will support English language on top of Japanese, Chinese (traditional and simplified) and Korean.
The price will be 6.980 yen plus taxes.
This game is the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the first A-Train, even if it’s slightly late. The original game was released in December 1985.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it’s basically a railway-focused urban development game in which the player focuses on developing public transportation lines.
This new game adds a sightseeing element with a strong focus on tourism. You can fully customize trains, buses, and trucks with colors, lights, pantographs, stickers, and more.
Company management is an important factor, and you both have a scenario mode and a free sandbox mode.
