What’s tokusatsu, you ask? Well, it’s a Japanese word that roughly translates to “special effects”, referring to live action films with superheroes. Kamen Rider fans already know this all too well, but for those of you that don’t, there’s a bit of trivia!
D3 has a game coming out for Wii and DS based on the currently airing Saturday morning show Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight, and at a glance I’d say it classifies as a kids game. On the other hand, you can play as a Kamen Rider, which kind of kicks a lot of ass. The game will be out this Winter, so if you have that itch only a cheesy superhero game can scratch, you might want to check this out.
