Crayon Shin-Chan drawn up as Japanese Wii launch title

The mischievous munchkin of anime and manga fame will try his hand at wooing (and mooning) Wii fans.

Yep, those are cheeks all right.

Banpresto has updated the Web site for Crayon Shin-Chan: Saikyou Kazoku Kasukabe King Ui, filling in some details of the Wii title. It was revealed that the game will go on sale in Japan December 2, alongside the console's launch in the country.

The game is described as a "family action" title, and it supports up to four players. The characters' voices will be played by the same actors featured in the anime series. Playing with Shin-Chan's dog, bursting soap bubbles, and putting golf balls are some of the minigames that will be featured, according to the site. Shin-chan's signature move of dropping his pants and mooning the audience will also be present, if Banpresto's screenshots are accurate.

There are currently no plans to release the game in the United States.

If the UK Wii isn't region free and the rest are, you can see a lot of them going on sale after people find out, and a lot of import consoles sold hehe Isn't Shin-Chan shown on US and UK kids channels anymore? It was brought over and dubbed, the voice actor for Shin-Chan is the voice actor for Gohan in DBZ.

The Wii MAY or MAY NOT be region-free. Apparently there have been contradicting statements made from different individuals in Nintendo. Perrin Kaplan says region-free, and the head of Nintendo UK says not, so I guess we'll just see. Maybe the UK one won't be but all the others will, lol. So I wouldn't give up hope just yet :) Not to mention the DS is region-free, so I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't do the same for the Wii. The game definitely looks interesting though, and even though I haven't seen very much of Shin-Chan, what I did see made me laugh really hard.

If this doesnt come to the us once i decide to actually buy the wii, i'm importing a japanese wii for my first wii. Sony has region free games for ps3, the xbox 360 has some region free games, but why cant nintendo have ANY region free games? i know from experience america is missing out on some great games....

I love the dub shown on Adult Swim, way too hilarious. If this game is as funny as the show is, I'm sold.

I thought the shin chan they showed on adult swim, with action bastard and all that, was just a parody of the original show, dubbed over similar to sealab 2021.

I could see this being a family title. Sounds like your typical, low brow Nickelodian bathroom humor.

"Jack Thompson....... AAAAAWAYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!" "This game has caused a recent outbreak in violence in Japan. First little kids moon people, then before you know it, they'll start going on schoolwide massacres, then they'll eventually get those giant robots I read once in a magazine and then the whole world will be doomed, because evil gamers wanted to play their evil violent violence-inspiring games like this." Just give it a few months.

To answer the question of how this can be a 'family game'? Easy--the Japanese are less uptight and Puritan about their entertainment than the majority of Americans. Simpsons, Beavis&Butthead, South Park--the shows that get Americans frothing at the mouth--aren't even a blip on the radar over there. I mean, have you seen some of their game shows? ;-)

Shin-Chan is a hilarious anime. I hope Action Bastard is in the game.

Hehe funny looking game. Its great that the wii automatically is making games which suit other countries. The control system easily fits into the seperate cultures. Japanese like the crazy stuff... an ideal american game would be, like using the wii remote as some sort of eating device.. (kidding). And for the brits, the wii remote would be perfect as a darts game.. i think that would greatly include the "really really large pub bound british male" into the market.. of which this is like 98% of the entire male british population hehehe Its great the wii remote makes wierd looking games actually seem fun to play. I would NEVER try this game out. I have the old smatter of japanese at my disposal, but ive never been into the crazy sense of humour.. my humour is quite similar.. but my translation skills are awful.. "little red riding hood" in japanese for me, was once translated as "homely student in red".. I laughd my head off, at a part which wasnt even intended to be funny. Anyways.. More good news for the wii! hooarr! I really cant wait for nintendo to get Adventurous with its ad campaigns.. too... many... funny...ideas... must....stop.. thinking....of...some...

I don't get why people would come into this story knowing they don't like anime, just to leave a stupid comment about how they don't like anime.

well, alot of things in other countries are different, including what they say is appropriate for younger follk. something that may be considered for kids in japan might be considered extreme here in the US.

Huh... wikipedia says Shin-Chan wasn't intended for adults. Re-dub. The adult swim rewrite is probably a lot better.

I wonder if there's a minigame where you punch a stuffed bunny. That would be awesome.

Wow, a licensed title that doesn't make me want to groan. I might actually play this if it doesn't suck and/or comes out in America.
