A collection of original Famicom-style games on the DS doesn't need a story to be awesome, but Retro Game Challenge has one, and it is wonderfully amusing. The embodiment of Game Center CX star Shinya Arino's gaming frustration becomes personified inside his DS and sends you, as a potential challenger, into the past to play old games with his childhood self.

Of course, in this version, he's just some guy named Arino who gets upset with games. It still works, kind of. 1UP's preview goes into the localization in more detail, including the use of Western game journalism in-jokes in the fake GameFan Magazine found in-game. More videos of the localized Retro Game Challenge, including a readthrough of a GameFan issue, follow the post break.
