Game Center CX Film Slated for Spring 2014
posted on by Marlene First
The previously revealed Game Center CX: The Movie is slated for release next spring. The movie is based on the television series, Game Center CX, where Arino plays what are apparently infuriatingly difficult retro games, sometimes with the help of his "interns." Namco Bandai Games also announced recently that it would be making a video game based of the television series for the 3DS.
The film was announced in June at a 10th anniversary press conference for the show. When asked who he would want to play him in GameCenter CX The Movie, Arino replied that he would like to be played by either Arata Furuta, Yoshiyoshi Arakawa, Satoshi Tsumabuki, or Joe Odagiri.
North American video distributor Discotek Media released an English-subtitled box set of 12 of the GameCenter CX episodes last October. The distributor changed the show's title to Retro Game Master for North American release.
