Japanese Sonic Free Riders Video

44 second read


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, twists…and hand-holding endeavours. The advert, replete with Japanese absurdity actually makes the game look surprisingly fun…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.

    WTF is Japan doing though, this ad reminds me of those really crappy video game ads from the late 80’s/early 90’s, when marketing companies had no friggin idea how to deal with the video game target market.

    Those pauses with the “Cool!” and “Amazing!” … is that shit for real? Seriously? lol
