TxK’s nat­u­ral home isn’t on a por­ta­ble con­sole in 2014. Rather, it’s in a lo­cal ar­cade in the ’80s. There, shrouded by a smoky fug, across a floor sticky with spilled beer, lies a cab­i­net scuffed through overuse, ac­ned with burns from cig­a­rette butts, sil­ver coins lined up above its pock­marked sticks and but­tons. Yet so trans­portive is TxK that within min­utes you’ll for­get about Vita’s tiny sticks and that its OLED dis­play is no sub­sti­tute for a proper vec­tor mon­i­tor.
