Sakigake!! Otokojuku PS3's New Promo Unveils Sandwich Man Comedians
posted on by Egan Loo
On Friday, Namco Bandai Games offered a new promotional video for Sakigake!! Otoko Juku Nihon yo, Kore ga Otoko Dearu! (Japan, These Are Men!), its PlayStation 3 game inspired by Akira Miyashita's classic Weekly Shonen Jump action comedy manga Sakigake!! Otoko Juku. This video introduces Sandwich Man, the Japanese comedy duo who are well-known fans of the original manga. The first copies of the game will include a product code to activate Sandwich Man's Mikio Date and Takeshi Tomizawa as playable characters.
The game will arrive on February 27, 2014. The game's limited edition will bundle a 21-centimeter-tall (about 8-inch-tall) figure of the Otoko Juku Sango-sei and Chinju Chokurō Guard, "Hell's Magician" Baron Dino. The limited edition will also have a pop-up picture book and a visual case with an exclusive illustration by Miyashita.
The 1985-91 manga about a boys' private school for delinquents sold 26 million volumes and already inspired games for Famicom (NES), Game Boy, PlayStation, and PlayStation 2. It also inspired a 1988 animated television series and movie, as well as a live-action film by director and actor Tak Sakaguchi (Versus, Death Trance, Shinobi).
