Japan Shows How it's Done with Crazy Sonic Free Riders Video

Posted by James Newton

Multiplayer modes inside

The Western trailer for Sonic Free Riders might have been odd enough on its own, but it's got nothing on this trailer just released by Sega's Japanese HQ.

As well as showing off some of the tricks you'll be able to pull off in the game, it also shows the game's multiplayer modes, including the Relay Race where four-players take it in turns to get on their boards and Tag Race, which looks like it could lead to more than a few embarrassing situations between members of the opposite sex. Or the same sex, for that matter.

If that isn't enough, it also contains plenty of English interjections, Japanese shouting and optimistic pop-rock in the background. It's really the ultimate video in so many ways.

That trailer was horrible. It made my eyes bleed, and I think my wife had a miscarriage because of it. I never want to see it again.

With that said, I am still very much looking forward to buying the game, because it has Sonic in it. In fact, it may be the only Kinect game I buy. But I probably won't play it, not when there's even the slightest chance of being seen by someone else, and that includes the FBI, who may or may not have installed hidden cameras in my living room.

Looks nice, I don't have an Xbox, but my cousin does. And if he gets Kinect, I'll pick up this game for it. It looks fun, but lets hope the controls are responsive. The partner thing looked kinda lame, though. Plus, judging by a youtube video I saw of a guy playing this, it looked like it can tire you out quickly. But again, it looks fun. :)

"Have more fuuuuuuun!"

@mickeymac Why would the FBI need to install hidden cameras? What do you think Kinect is?

Oops... I've said too much.
