Japan’s summer Vita games are an older white guy

Meet Perumetarupawaberamiku. That’s the name of the older white guy in this new Japanese Vita commercial. He sounds it out slowly so you can see that his name is made up of bits of the names of the big summer releases for PS Vita in Japan.

  • Peru – Persona 4 The Golden
  • metaru, as in Metal – Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
  • pawa, as in Power – Power Pro Baseball
  • bera, as in Time Travelers, Level 5’s upcoming title
  • miku, as in Hatsune Miku, from Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA-f

Clever. Well, not really. But kind of funny. Now, it would be really clever if they picked a white guy because they wanted some kind of tie to the new Crystal White Vita unit.

His last name is probably something boring, like Brown.
