UCHIDA: No.50 Using Wangan cards with 3DX

Hi there, it's Uchida here.

It's got quite a bit colder these days, and the leaves must be starting to turn red a little further up north and at high altitudes...the signs of autumn are certainly starting to appear.

On the 1st floor of the Future Lab, there is a little waterfall and pond, and I think that some of the water must be collecting somewhere because mosquitoes keep appearing from weird places around the building.
Seeing the number of mosquitoes decrease lately, I've been getting the feeling that we are moving deeper into autumn.
(I wonder if me writing about this kind of thing annoys you guys???)

Leaving aside those ramblings for a while...just like the other Future Lab News members, I've been frantically trying to finish off all the work for Wangan Maxi 3DX.

I guess you guys are thinking about whether you can use your old cards in the new game, right?
I can't fill you in on all the details yet, but I can say this...

Cards that can be used with 3DX are:

  • Wangan Maxi 3 cards currently in use
  • Cards issued at the Wangan Maxi 3DX location test
  • Cards issued at the Wangan Maxi 3DX AM Show

These three cards are the only ones that can be used.

All other cards, like

  • Cards from Wangan Maxi 1 or 2

cannot be used for 3DX.

People who have a Wangan Maxi 2 card can use it for Wangan Maxi 3DX if they first change it to a Wangan Maxi 3 card, then change the new card to a Wangan Maxi 3DX card.

The "Game Interface Premium Card", which was included in the first edition of the Wangan Soundtrack CD, can be used in 3DX if it has been used already with Wangan Maxi 3.
*If you haven't used it with Wangan Maxi 3, you won't be able to use it in 3DX, so be careful!!

So, what data can you carry forward from Wangan Maxi 3? Well,

  • TA Registration
  • Title

We're planning to make it possible to carry forward the other data in some form.

The word on the street is that people who have got a little more distance to go to finish XX laps in Story Mode would be well advised to clear that lap and get onto the next one...

I'm going to leave the story slightly mysterious until next time though...
See you!
