This game’s about anthropomorphic mushroom girls

Now I’ve seen everything

Step aside Captain Toad, there’s a new game about fungi folk in town.

Kinoko Collection: Kinoko Takenoko Hyakunen Sensou (Mushroom Collection: The Hundred Year’s Mushroom-Bamboo Shoot War) is a new mobile game about, yes, a conflict between anthropomorphic mushrooms and bamboo shoots.

It seems like a bizarre play on Kantai Collection, a popular online game from Kadokawa featuring personified moe warships, but it only gets stranger the further down this rabbit hole you go. Apparently, Kinoko Collection has its roots in a Japanese chocolate feud.

Yes, a feud between two brands of chocolate. Kinoko no Yama (Mushroom Mountain) and Takenoko no Sato (Bamboo Shoot Village) are very divisive candies. While both brands are made by the same company, Meiji, consumer opinion on which sweet is superior is decidedly split.

Maybe this game will help decide once and for all which one is better.
