My brain, literally just exploded. My fiancee and I are HUGE Sasuke fans, I really hope this is fun. I mean, even if it's just mildly fun I'll be happy. The gameplay video doesn't really look that spectacular, but it's only a few bucks.

What would make this turn my world upside down is if it had some of the regulars on the game as contenders, or if you could make your own character (i.e. make a goofy costume, or someone like the octopus man). It doesn't look like there's anything else other than your little green-shirt guy and a poorly lit course.

At any rate, I'm downloading it ASAP. The Sasuke IP seems like it would be a fun one to make a game out of, so like I said even if this is mildly entertaining I'll be glad I bought it.

You can view a couple videos of the game on the dev's website, they are in Japanese and the gameplay looks to be mostly accelerometer based from what I see in the videos.

It does look like it's mostly accelerometer based where you're tapping the screen based on a balance meter.

I hope this is good. My kids will go nuts over it, I'm sure. Want it, but holding off for commentary by others.
