The game has in-game tie-ups with 27 different companies, including a karaoke parlor, a sake distillery and a tanning salon. The voice cast boasts some of Japan's biggest stars, and a theme song by popstar Eikichi Yazawa. The game also features model Rina Sakurai, who I interviewed for Arcade Mania.
