Japan Makes Awesome Time Travel GamesRichard Eisenbeis10/16/12 7:00amFiled to: Japantime travelChrono TriggerTokitowaKotakueastKotakcoreFbtweet94EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkOver the past few months I've been anxiously awaiting the new PS3 title Tokitowa. While some are looking forward to the love story aspect or to its attempt to make a playable anime, the core of my anticipation is something altogether different: I've been dying to play another Japanese time travel story. For me, time travel is the perfect narrative setting. It can be used as a backdrop for any other type of story: mystery, action, romance, or even a magical girl anime. And when it comes to the exploration of time travel as a concept—and the sheer fun of a time travel adventure—there are few places better to look than Japanese games.
