Not sold yet on Captain Rainbow? Chad's excellent news breaking post heralding the existence of the game and the previously displayed pre-release trailers not enough to get you excited? Well, then feast your eyes on the little bastards from Famicom Wars (the NES-era prequel to Advance Wars) digging on the angular, jiggle-free boobage on Link's Awakening's Crazy Tracy. Hot, huh? Then double click the video to be taken to the English subtitled version, because the only thing sexier than angular videogame boobs is angular video game boobs with subtitles. It's even sexier than Haggar porn
 
Still not convinced? Then hit the jump for a second video and details on the gameplay of Captain Rainbow.
 
 
 
 
1up.com's summation/translation of Famistu's latest news on Captain Rainbow's gives us a good taste of what the title has to offer. As previously reported, the bulk of the game is spent helping losers fix their lives, not unlike previous Skip efforts Chibi-Robo and GiftPia. Basicly, you run around an island inhabited by washed up D-list Nintendo celebrities and try to help them out with their various life issues.
 
The new info here is that as you help these "misfit toys" of the videogame world, you are rewarded with "shinies". Twenty shinies nets you an opportunity to enter a side scrolling game sequence that sounds very "dodge or die" intensive. How much raw action these sequences will include remains to be seen, but from what we now know, Captain Rainbow could still end up being the Animal Crossing/Super Smash Bros. hybrid many hardcore Nintendo fans have been dreaming of for years
 
Nintendo of America would be stupid not to localize this one. With quirky, tongue-in-cheek videogame references regularly making the rounds in high profile cartoon shows like Chowder, and the Wii popping up in countless prime time TV shows, it seems clear that videogame culture has finally gone mainstream. Since NoA seems so obsessed with pleasing the mainstream, one would think that a game that has gaming culture as it's centerpiece like Captain Rainbow would be be localized without question. Sadly, NoA's track record for localizing even the most obviously marketable games isn't so great. Even titles with huge built in audiences like Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland and Mother 3 never made it to the states.
 
Only time will tell if Western audiences will indeed get a crack at Crazy Tracy's awesomely fake boobs. Those lucky Japanese will get their chance when the game drops in their country on August 28th.
