Minna de Spelunker is coming to the PlayStation 3 in Japan. How does one generate interest in a high-def Spelunker remake? Put women in short outfits! Short Spelunker outfits!
It's a pretty easy formula, one that publisher Irem capitalized upon when opening up the "Spelunker Lounge" this past week to Spelunker-crazed Japanese journalists. Simply take an existing character and, regardless of the gender of the main character(s), redesign that character's outfit with minimal leg coverage. Then stand near the playable version of the game being promoted.
Oh! And bring booze!
We'll bet that Spelunker wine tastes delicious. Probably more enjoyable than our hands-on time with the PlayStation Network game at Tokyo Game Show, anyway.
