Guilty Gear Spin-Off Known as Towel Slappin' Pro-Jumper in North America

Posted by Trevor Chan

Quirky platformer now rated by the ESRB

Back in August, we reported on the Japanese release of the Guilty Gear spin-off title Arc Style: Furo Jump!! Guilty Gear Gaiden!?, and if this quirky DSiWare title caught your interest then you're in luck as the game has been passed by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Known in North America as Towel Slappin’ Pro-Jumper!, the side-scrolling platform game from Arc System Works features the little Chimaki character as he attempts to locate the secret hot springs in order to soothe his back pains. Along the way, players will encounter the game's antagonist, Rebel, who has an old score to settle with our towel-slapping hero. Here's the summary from the ESRB page:

This is a side-scrolling platformer game in which players guide a small pillow-like creature through a variety of "cartoony" hot springs. As players run and jump through levels (some depicting male characters wearing towels inside hot tubs), they defeat various turtles, frogs, and pink elephants by slapping them with a towel. Enemies disappear in brief puffs of smoke when hit, and the central character reacts to damage by blinking and falling off-screen. The names of some levels are based on innuendo and puns (e.g., Nude York, Rome Laid Bare, and Full-Frontal Fuji), and one leaflet contains text that reads, "For help with . . . un-natural male enhancement."

Umm, well, it's from Arc System Works, so that explains about 95% right there. Let's hope that it's way better than BlayzBloo was earlier this year.

I'm buying it for the name alone. I've taken this strategy ever since that PC game, Dudebro: My S*** Is F***** Up So I Got to Shoot/Slice You II: It's Straight-Up Dawg Time was announced

Sega really needs to return all the Guilty Gear rights back to Arc System.

I hope that this game will also be released in Europe. In Japan it is rated "A", which means "for everyone", but it seems Americans are a lot more "sensitive" so it is rated "10+" in USA. Now I wonder what will happen in Europe. In UK probably 18+ hahaha, in Germany any blood must be coloured green (instead of red, hahaha) and in Holland - where even XXX movies are rated as 16+ (sometimes 18+, but that is just to boost sales, they are actually rated 16+) this game will probably be 3+. Anyway... as long as these kind of wakky fun typical Japanese weirdness and humour is released world-wide I am happy. And I hope that they have language options, like Japanese voice with English subtitles. That will probably be light-years better than any English voice-over or any "Deutsche Synchronfassung oder Nachsynchroniserung" hahaha.
