Tōkyō Bus Annai
The three routes selectable in the game are the Niji 01 (across the Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo Bay area), Tian 70 (in the busy Shinjuku ward; this line was decommissioned in 2000), and Ume 76 (a more rural route in Western Tokyo). All the routes can be driven at noon, in the evening, or at night, with respectively different traffic density and amount of passengers. Some of the routes and schedules have to be unlocked by gaining experience in Story mode. Story mode also includes short cutscenes of interactions and monologues of some of the passengers, which play at certain bus stops. These cutscenes unlock brief files on the respective passenger's profiles in the main menu, along with occasional entries into an album. There is also a Free Run mode where no data is saved and no content can be unlocked.
A mini-game that can be downloaded to the Visual Memory unit is a quiz game on Japanese road signs.
