Japan Busts Out the Eye Shadow and Plastic Guns for Starhawk

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

When you think of third-person shooter Starhawk, you probably think of space, giant mecha, and multiplayer game play. You most likely do not think of a dude with eye paint or a dude dressed up like Golgo 13.


In this clip, Japanese comedians (and a lady from Sony) help us through a walkthrough of the game. I guess for some this probably looks pretty strange! But in Japan, this sort of stuff is simply called "TV".

A good chunk of Japanese television follows this format, with comedians in silly costumes either doing things or explaining things. Loads of game companies use it at either press conferences or in videos like this. Better than boring, stiff walkthroughs, I say!
