The news-cycle may have moved on to more immediate concerns, but Japan is still reeling from the effects of the recent earthquakes and tsunami. The good news is that the game industry is still standing behind the land that made us.
Paradox Interactive today announced Cities in Motion: Tokyo and Magicka: Nippon.
Cities in Motion: Tokyo is a new expansion to the public-transportation sim that introduces Tokyo as a new setting for wanna-be public transit administrators to oversee, building Tokyo’s public transportation system over the course of four decades, beginning in the 1970s.
Magicka: Nippon is a new Japan-themed DLC pack for the innovative co-op action game, featuring a new kimono robe, katana sword and bamboo staff for Eastern-themed wizards to enjoy.
Best of all, between May 31 and June 3, 50% of revenue for each product goes straight to Japan’s tsunami/earthquake relief. Buy a game and donate to a good cause at the same time — what more could you want?
