Muscle March coming this Monday for just five bucks


1:00 AM on 01.17.2010



Did you know that the initial trailer for Muscle March was one of the most viewed video posts on Destructoid in 2009? It got nearly half a million hits last year. Not bad for a game we all thought would never leave Japan.

In just a few days, we'll be able to see if those hits will translate into sales, as Muscle March flexes its oily glutes all over WiiWare this Monday. The game will cost just 500 Wii Points, surprisingly cheap for a WiiWare game that looks good, sounds good, and has gotten a fair amount of media exposure.

With this, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, and No More Heroes 2 all coming out this month, I bet it's hard for non-Wii-owning fans of Japanese weirdness (or weirdness in general) to contain their jealousy. You know, a Wii only cost $150 used. Add $5 to that for Muscle March, $6 for Bit.Trip Beat, and $20 for No More Heroes, and you've got a package of unmatched psychedelia that comes to just $1 more than three new 360/PS3 games.

Getting all three of those games at the same time would make for one heck of an interesting afternoon. I envy those of you that may yet have that experience. I'm sure that zombie Timothy Leary does too. Then again, he probably envies everyone who's not rotting away in a coffin somewhere.

Roughly one year ago the original Steins;Gate game was localized, and it was pretty well received critically. Developer 5pb isn't done yet with the series, and has just announced Steins;Gate 0, a follow-up to the or...more

Obscure Video Games: Oh No!

"Oh no!" is what I say whenever I hear somebody's put out another runner game. I completely lost interest in the genre years ago. However, back in 2000, it was still a fairly novel concept. That's when Asmik Ace Entertainment...more
