Get ready to not be horny: New Captain Rainbow videos and gameplay details

10:38 PM on 08.07.2008 // Jonathan Holmes

 
 
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.

Life is Strange Spoilers: I am about to start Episode 5 but noticed Uzumaki inspiration right away. Beginning scene with the town and lighthouse, tons of Spirals including the projections in the "End of the World Party". Anyone else notice this?

Cam you believe that hot dog's with cheese in them exist? That is the grossest monstrosity to ever grace the market. The cheese belongs on top of the dog people! All over it!

Holy cow, Final Fantasy VII was actually REALLY good! The PS4/PC "cheats" really helped my enjoyment. Check out my Cblog for extended thought, and what do you think of FFVII with a 2016 outlook?

Hope my Flash Sale sense is correct this week. I was hoping for more than a Ubisoft sale. Also, is it just me, or does it seem like Ubisoft games are on sale every damn week?

Just started Pillars of Eternity and I'm elated I can play as a treeman druid! Which brings me one step closer to a game that lets me play as an Ent. Besides that walking tree simulator and WoW, are there any decent games where you can play as an Ent?

Overnight, I dreamed Destructoid existed as an old-timey collectibles shop. Quickposts graced the shelves as paintings, available for purchase; the number of faps on a post directly equaled its price. Video games and VG accessories also were up for sale.

Usually I'm not comfortable showing stuff off like this, but this is something I've been working on for college work, and it's the first thing I feel like is at least halfway worth showing.
