The weirdest game launch of the week was unsurprisingly accompanied by an equally weird and silly trailer.
Muscle March, straight out of Japan, was released on WiiWare this week, a game that makes absolutely no sense to anyone other than its developers. This is what makes it so great. Muscle March's launch trailer, taking the form of a faux infomercial, doesn't show too much of the game itself, but it does exemplify the weirdness that it's based on.
In Muscle March, Players must flex into the proper shapes while chasing thieves of dietary supplements. If the trailer is to be believed, Muscle March supplements can alter both your daughter's nationality and gender. They're like "a punch from Zeus, and not everyone can handle that." I would take any substance that could bring me to a rainbow road in the sky, which for some odd reason also has brick walls built upon it to smash through.
If there was one thing I could change about this trailer, I would make it feature more speedo-wearing polar bears. For the record, The Escapist does not recommend that anyone under the age of 18 use dietary supplements, other than Muscle March of course. Thank the creator for the Japanese, I think the world would be a very boring place without them.
