Weekly Toro Station (週刊トロ・ステーション, Syūkan Toro Sutēshon) is a video game developed by Bexide and Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. It is the sequel to Mainichi Issho and was released on November 11, 2009 through the Japanese PlayStation Store.

Toro Station[edit]

Weekly Toro Station is actually a replacement for Mainichi Issho. Free digital distribution of Mainichi Issho lasted from November 11, 2006 to November 11, 2009. Mainichi Issho 's core feature was the daily news service called Toro Station (トロ・ステーション). This costly service was discontinued and replaced with a, lighter, weekly service that focuses more on video games and manga/anime culture news.
