Sometimes, one just gets this urge to remake reality according to one’s personal tastes. Fortunately, Sony Computer Entertainment’s map-making game, Nippon no Asoko de, let’s players to just that. The video below will give you a better idea of how things operate in this quirky-looking game.
Sony’s video begins with a pleasant, accented female voice – the kind you might hear in airport terminals – notifying passengers about the boarding of a craft bound for Tokyo. From thereon, it delves more deeply into the map-making specifics of Nippon no Asoko de.
The rest of the video shows aliens scanning Tokyo and apparently making personalized maps of the city. As they do so, the Japanese announcer discusses details of the game system, such as the Place Engine and the Peta Map.
