TAKENAKA: No.49 Requests from Wangan Fans

Hi there everybody. It's me, Takenaka, Wangan programmer.

Wangan Maxi 3DX has finally reached the very last development stage! The project members are all busy now putting the final touches to the game and doing some debugging work.
Not long now till the game comes out ? just wait a little more!

Recently loads of Wangan fans came along to the AM Show and to our location test to get a look at Wangan Maxi 3DX.
(Thanks so much to everybody who made the effort to come along!) These kinds of event give us the chance to meet Wangan fans in person, and they also give fans a chance to tell us directly what sort of game they would like 3DX to be, and what sort of things they would like included in the game. Thanks so much for your enthusiastic requests and opinions!

Although we do already get lots of requests through our opinion box, meeting fans face to face gives us the opportunity to ask really detailed questions, and this often helps us a lot.

Sometimes people tell me about some bug or other that I didn't know about, which is pretty embarrassing (pained laugh)

So then, back to everybody's requests ? there were hundreds!
Requests about car types, courses, production, and lots more...Although some requests were pretty difficult to include in the game, and others couldn't be put in exactly as requested, despite racking our brains, we were able to add or in some way reflect some of the easier requests in Wangan Maxi 3DX.
Thanks so much to all of you who gave us your opinion.

Well there's not much development time left for Wangan Maxi 3DX, but all of the project team members are going to do their very best (make a futile last-minute effort!?) to make this a great game for all you Wangan fans. Not long to wait now!
OK, see you later!
