Killzone 3 Taps FPS-Loving Japanese Porn Star

You've made a first-person shooter. Who better to hawk it than somebody who really likes first-person shooters. Somebody like Noa.

Noa Torigoe, star of adult films like Max Orgasm, Ultimate Gold and The Fuck Fuck Fuck: 10 In Rapid Succession, has been roped in to promote Killzone 3 in Japan. While first-person shooters do have a following in Japan, the most popular genre for console games are traditionally role-playing and action games.

Noa isn't just a hardcore pornstar, but a hardcore gamer. Sure, lots of porn stars play video games, big deal, but how many Japanese people, let alone blue movie actresses, own an Xbox 360, reached Level 50 in Call of Duty: World at War two weeks after release and wax about the differences between Fable I and Fable II?

"I think because more and more Western games are getting Japanese releases," she blogged in 2009, "it seems like we're in an age where the game world is shared."

She's big on first-person-shooters especially, and even has her own blog dedicated to video games called "Head Shot Freak". in which she writes about games like Dragon Age: Origins and Borderlands.

"The console that I play the most is the Xbox 360," Noa told Kotaku Japan at last year's Tokyo Game Show. "Recently, I've been playing Mass Effect and Fallout."

"The console that I play the most is the Xbox 360."

The web campaign has Noa leading the fascist-looking Helghast faction and facing off agsint the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance. Folks can follow the Helghan account or the ISA to get updates and help duke it out virtually in a browser game.

The ISA faction is being lead by comedian Terence Lee. Lee claims to be an ex-mercenary, apparently working as a sniper. The name "Terence Lee" was supposedly given to him while he was doing mercenary work in South America. According to Japan Today, last December Lee got his ass kicked by a 42-year-old, part-time department store employee after Lee bumped into him on his bicycle. Lee, who apparently has black belts in karate and aikido as well as judo training, was left with injuries to his face that took months to heal.

The self-styled mercenary is taking a bit of a virtual beating, too. The Helghan Corporation, under Noa's lead, is winning the Twitter following war at the time of posting.

Yes, Killzone 3 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and Noa likes her Xbox 360, but that's beside the point. Sony was smart to sign her on for the game's online viral promotions. She's got gamer cred, and she's interested in Western games. A handful of Japanese adult video actresses have crossed over into the mainstream — most recently Sola Aoi. However, Noa is lurching towards the masses, not through the typical avenue of singing or pin-up modeling, but rather, video games. Well, that and dirty movies.
