Every once in a while, SEGA of Japan does something which comes out of nowhere. With the announcement of Toirettsu…well, it comes out of somewhere. And now I am truly frightened.
Basically, it’s a game that involves urine. Real urine. In a real urinal. Sadly, like most SEGA games it doesn’t appeal to a female audience. Intended for the true gaming connoisseur, the object is to relieve yourself upon a conveniently placed target, taking part in various “mini-games” that feature a sparkle-eyed boy with a bandage on his knee. As he goes to the bathroom. Naked. Wait, how many people use public restrooms in the buff? I’m getting more frightened with each second. Imagine the testing for the game alone! And how in the world will this ever get a home release!? If Samba De Amigo can be ported to the Wii…
Supposedly, the mentality behind this all is to help people use the bathroom properly and not get it on the wall/floor/the guy next to you. I don’t know about you, but if I’ve been drinking and stumble into a bathroom where the urinal is asking me to play a game with it, I’m going to assume I’ve had way too much to drink. And then hide in the stall.
True enough, this isn’t exactly a “Sonic” game as Sonic doesn’t appear whatsoever, but many people could argue that it deals with similar themes. And it gives the front page an excuse to remind people that, yes, we here at Retro deal with more than just Sonic the Hedgehog. We love everything that SEGA pisses at us!
…that doesn’t sound right at all. Oh well, hopefully these interactive urinals will be up and running for the next Summer of Sonic. That is part of your budget, right AAUK?
