When it comes to video game themed TV shows few can compare to Japan’s GameCenter CX. Set in a fictional company, employees must complete various video game challenges to keep their jobs and get a raise. It has even proven popular overseas, and the show’s main host, Shinya Arino, even popped up in Super Mario Maker last year as a costume.
The show’s relationship with Nintendo still seems to be going strong too, as in one of the most recent episodes an employee is tasked with completing seven tasks the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All of the gameplay is from the Great Plateau area shown off at E3 and in demos, but it’s definitely a zanier take.
While the episode is purely in Japanese you can definitely get the general sense of the antics just by watching. Give it a look:Leave a Comment
