Sonic Athletics is a new game, or should that be attraction which will be openning at Sega’s Tokyo Joypolis on April 25th. Players can take on the role of either, Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Shadow, Amy, Metal Sonic, Silver and even Blaze in a sprint to the finish line. First one there, wins.
And you won’t believe how you play this game…
You take position in one of 8 treadmills in front of giant arcade style screens which display a running track in which you compete against your friends or strangers in a race to victory.
Yes that’s right – the faster you run, the faster your character runs.
Based on google translate, the game is recommended for people who need to exercise and it invites couples and friends to join in the fun too.
You can see from the computer model how big the attraction is. Before anyone asks, the odds of this coming to any other arcade is virtually zero. If anyone does happen to go to Tokyo Joypolis any time soon. Please take lots of photos and videos.
… … … ..What? Whats wrong with you lot? *looks at the title* Oh… Oh! I bet I know what you thought…
