‘Super Monkey Ball’ for Vita promo epitomizes the state of the platform in Japan
Word on the street is that the PlayStation Vita is not doing so hot in Japan. And nothing illustrates this better than the advert for its version of Super Monkey Ball.
As you can see, it’s mostly just some Japanese model playing the game while trying to keep herself balanced on one of those yoga balls, and in a bikini.
I mean, sure, it’s a way to emphasize the gyroscopes in the system and how that has a direct impact on gameplay.
But still, it’s a tad bit too obvious and pandering. We expect better Japan, sorry. But is it any worse than those special levels in which you’re rolling over her breasts? Not really.
