Tokyo Bus Guide 2 -
Densha de Go! has hooked gamers with virtual train conducting and Success works on
hooking the same demographic with virtual bus driving.
Play the part of a Bureau of Transportation employed bus driver in the bustling
metropolis of Tokyo and ferry passengers throughout
the wards of the city.
All of the duties of a proper bus driver
are covered in the game including opening and
closing the doors at the right time, observing
traffic signals, making stop announcements,
signaling a turn, driving within the confines of one
lane and not hogging up two lanes, and basically
observing the rules of defensive bus driving to make
sure that the passengers are safe and get to their
appointed rounds. Falter in performing bus driving
routines and demerits will be charged and your
license to drive eventually revoked. Crash into another vehicle
or even a pedestrian and your ride ends.
rank your performance based on comfort level and
smoothness of ride - hard braking will count against
your rating. The main game mode features 18 routes
to drive through including interesting sightseeing
locales such as Pine Hill in Ueno, Asakusa, Shibuya,
Akihabara, and Waseda while an "Issho Mode"
(Together Mode) splits the bus driving duties
amongst two players with one doing the driving and
the other performing passenger support duties.
Success touts a driving world that's roughly twice
as large as the one in the original Tokyo Bus
Guide so drivers can get their mileage on. There are
three major routes to drive through which encompass
a total of 67 stops or stations to roll up to.
Operators may also drive during the day or night to
experience different traffic patterns and passenger
The Bureau of Transportation, Tokyo Metropolitan Government (Toei)
sanctioned the game and even allowed Success the use
of its mascot "Minkuru" for promotional material and
