Japanese WiiWare Goes Bubble Wrap Crazy
Posted by Darren Calvert
Pop til you can't stop!
When it comes to great inventions we all know that the Japanese create the wackiest things in the world. A good example of this would be the bubble wrap keychain. What kind of mind could have come up with something so bizarre? This little device not only simulates the stress relieving powers of popping bubble wrap but every 100th pop rewards you with a funny sound such as a boing, a bark or a rude noise.
The name of this interesting device is "Mugen Puchi Puchi” and it is made by Bandai. Now why is WiiWare World telling you all this? Simply because this great concept has been translated by Namco Bandai into the most bonkers game known to all mankind! In addition to that it is coming soon to the Japanese WiiWare service under the name of Ouchi de Mugen Puchi Puchi Wii Soon our Japanese friends will be able to squeeze bubbles with their Wiimote and score combos for popping in time with the music. There are around 40 levels with different themes including Xevious! All this and more for 800 Wii points.
Check out the trailer below:
The chances of Namco localising this for North America and Europe are slim admittedly, but stranger things have happened. The question is, if they did – would you buy it?
