Gon Paku Paku Paku Paku Adventure Announced for 3DS in Japan

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Now that's a video game name

We often look at Nintendo console game releases in Japan with some envy, particularly when no localisation details are forthcoming. Titles such as Theatrhythm Final Fantasy are missed because they're part of a major, popular franchise, but in the case of Gon Paku Paku Paku Paku Adventure, we just really like the name.

As reported by Andriasang, it's only just been announced by Namco Bandai for a Japanese release on 14th June, with the main goal being to help the main character to eat, explore and sleep.

We may not know much much about the game yet, but its title and advertisement art certainly grabbed our attention.

Paku Paku means to munch on something. Kinda looks like what the lizard is doing to that apple. Lesson time over!

"help the main character to eat, explore and sleep" reminds me of Minecraft, though I'm sure they're nothing alike.

Hey! I remember that guy from Tekken 3, no wonder he looks familiar... As for the game, sure If this game comes stateside, I'll bite since its giving me vibes from a similar Namco Platformer, Wagan Land. Oh region lock, why must you be so cruel?
Explore, Eat, Sleep... Sounds just about right.

Oh my God, I love GON so much! I gotta put some videos of the SNES version in my youtube account. I strongly suggest you check out the manga if you're not familar with GON, it's hilarious.

Also, in the title there, those パク (paku) look more like バク (baku) to me. Two dots next to the ハ instead of the circle means a B rather than a P... (though I don't know whether to see those dinosaur footsteps as dots or not, there certainly are two of them).
According to the Japanese dictionary, "pakupaku" is the motion of a mouth flapping open and closing (ie, a chomping dinosaur... or a Pac-man), while "bakubaku" is a heart-thumping sound.

@EarthboundBenjy: You're right — the official website itself uses 'ba' instead of 'pa' in the header text. however, it seems Andriasang.com has translated it as 'paku'. count me confused as well :3

I remember Gon being extremely annoying to fight in Tekken 3 because it was so short. I have also tried a japanese snes game he stars in, that game made no sense to me, though I suppose it wasn't supposed to.

Gon's one of the best characters in Tekken 3 (home console version only, for I don't think he appeared in the arcade version) :)

Ha it's great seeing Gon again. I do enjoy playing his original game on the Super Famicom and his guest appearance in Tekken 3.
