Sega promoting Alien: Isolation with scary eels

Would you eat this to maybe win a copy?

Alien: Isolation launches in Japan this week and Sega is promoting it in the creepiest way possible.

Over the next week in Tokyo, folks will have an opportunity to feast on the closest thing to a real live Chestburster on this planet — all for an opportunity to win a copy of the new horror game.

It seems the terrors pictured in Ridley Scott’s 1979 film weren’t too out of this world, because there’s a species of eel goby (known in Japan as the warasubo) that looks a lot like an infant Xenomorph.

Not sure if I’d want to devour one, though. Even for a free game. But to each his vile, horrible own.
