Video game news website Famitsu revealed the title, logo, and key visual for CAPCOM's upcoming Nintendo 3DS game that will use IC cards, which are used in Japan to pay for public transportation fares. The game is titled Megami Meguri (Goddess Tour).
The September 15 issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine will reveal more information on communication with characters in the game and how the IC cards work. It will also publish an interview with the game's heroine Tsukumo-chan.
In the game, players tap the IC card on the Nintendo 3DS, which will give players items and allow them to converse with characters. The exact nature of the items and characters will vary depending on the data on the card, such as riding history.
10 types of IC cards, including Kitaca, Suica, Pasmo, Toica, Manaca, Icoca, PiTaPa, Sugoca, Nimoca, and Hayakaken cards, will all be supported in the games, and the game will portray over 9,000 real-life stations in Japan.
The game is part of a planned project done in conjunction with local railways with the intent to revitalize local areas.
