It’s cooooooool, amazing..and will allow you to have more fun! That’s what this video from SEGA Japan has to say about Sonic Free Riders, the company’s inaugural game for Microsoft’s motion-sensing tech, due for release early next month.
Like many of the initial games for the platform, it’s an on-rails affair; a board-racer that utilises motion-sensing to capture your jumps, twistsâ€¦and hand-holding endeavours. The advert, replete with Japanese absurdity actually makes the game look surprisingly funâ€¦until fatigue sets in, of course. I’m faaaar too lazy to do that sort of thing for protracted periods of time.
There’s racing, swimming, bob-sleighing, wiping your screen clean and of course, sticking your bum out and flailing your arms about like an absolute loon.
