We almost didn't believe it ourselves, but Sega of Japan is teaming up with the racy restaurant chain Hooters to promote the forthcoming Sonic Forces.

We can't help but feel this kind of marketing would be better suited for Sega's Yakuza franchise, but there you go. 

The full, lurid details of the campaign are yet to be fully announced, but we do know that the Hooters locations where the promotion is due to take place are apparently located in Akasaka, Ginza and Shibuya West.

The campaign also appears to be exclusive to Japan. Sorry to get your hopes up, Sonic fans.
