Whether it’s including cat-fights in Yakuza or being the first game company to apply “boob physics” to a non-human character in the Sonic Adventure series, the folks at SEGA have made it quite clear that they are fans of the finer female form.
Completely ignoring the irony that Sonic’s primary gameplay mechanic is turning himself into a blue ball, SEGA has taken their love of the ladies to a new level this weekend at the Tokyo Game Show by announcing a partnership with the Hooters restaurant chain to promote the upcoming release of Sonic Forces. But don’t get your chili dogs warmed up just yet- this partnership, at least so far, appears to be limited to Japan.
While the full details of the partnership have yet to be announced, the Hooters locations where the promotions will take place preliminarily appear to be Akasaka, Ginza, and Shibuya West.
There’s also no word as to whether Sonic Forces will have any extra Hooters-related content added to it, but I’m sure that Sonic fans everywhere are dreaming of the possibilities. Hooters girl DLC? Hooters meets Howard Johnson? Costume options for Rouge the bat? Hooters & Knuckles?
Personally, you’ll never get me to step foot in a Hooters location ever again. No matter how many times I go and pay good money for those tasty, spicy chicken wings, when I ask my waitress if she wants to come back to my place and try my own special sauce – for FREE, I might add – I get kicked out. Bitches.
Not able to high-tail it to Japan? Don’t let blue balls get you down. Sonic Forces releases on November 7th.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to do some extensive research into this exciting development. You know, for journalism. Boob journalism. (Heads to Deviant Art)
