Still-to-be-titled game to support 10 types of IC Cards.


Capcom is developing a 3DS game in cooperation with JR East Japan Planning designed to work with the Japanese IC Card, which are primarily used to pay public transportation fares.

By tapping your IC Card to your 3DS, you can obtain items and communicate with characters in the game based on information such as your riding history.

The game supports 10 types of IC Cards—Kitaca, Suica, Pasmo, Toica, Manaca, Icoca, PiTaPa, Sugoca, Nimoca, and Hayakaken—and Japan’s more than 9,000 train stations are set to appear.

Capcom plans to cooperate with local railways and related facilities to take advantage of the game’s functionality, and will proactively work to liven up each region.
