The foundations are merely, but horrifying…

Having handled us to a couple of bonafide back-to-back classics in January, retro-loving writer Hamster is kicking off the brand new month with one thing particularly obscure for the Arcade Archives, with the arrival of Seta/Allumer’s digital card sport Magical Velocity, now out there on PS4 and Nintendo Change.

Hitting the Japanese coin-op scene in 1994, Magical Velocity is an anime-infused model of the classical “Velocity” card sport, which sees two gamers go head-to-head in a race to shed their respective fingers as rapidly as potential. Gamers concurrently try to match playing cards of their deck with the highest card in a central pool — always pulling from a aspect deck in a bid to be the primary to deplete all playing cards in hand. It’s easier than yer boy is making it sound, however maybe not a lot when offered in Japanese by shouting anime characters

Whereas maybe the nichest Arcade Archives launch in a while, this obscure oddity is value a search for conventional card sport followers.
