Do you dread having to run to the little boys room? Does going to the toilet leave you bored to tears? Well, no longer! Sega has unveiled its new restroom game that challenges you to pee to the very best of your ability. You’ve been honing these skills your entire life and now you can finally put your abilities to the test. It’s time to break the seal and break some records.
The game is Toirettsu (ト イレッツ) and patrons control the game by peeing on sensors in a urinal (sorry ladies, you’re missing out on this one). The user’s performance is measured by sensors and all the data is displayed on an LCD monitor above the urinal itself. One sensor detects the mighty challenger when he approaches, and a second sensor uses microwave technology to determine the speed of the stream, which in turn determines the pace of the game.
The line-up so far includes three different game modes. Two single-player modes will have you cleaning up graffiti and gusting wind at a girl to blow off her dress (only in Japan, folks, only in Japan). As for multiplayer, your urinating power is measured against those of previous users and is represented by milk streams being shot from opposing characters’ noses. A winner is determined when one character is blown out of the ring by the other character’s unrelenting milk-powered nose laser.
Sega is focusing mainly on dining and drinking establishments since their patrons frequent the restroom quite often. They believe that goal-oriented games will keep restrooms cleaner by encouraging patrons to actually aim inside the urinal. (Imagine that!) We’re not so sure that this will be the case; after all, a long night of drinking can be detrimental to your aim. And how many times will someone toss his Wii-(pun intended)-mote in frustration after failing to beat a high score?
Regardless of whether or not it will keep restrooms cleaner, it will most certainly make taking a trip to the toilet more enjoyable. Toirettsu is slated for commercial release in Japan sometime in November, and will cost establishments ¥140,000 (~$1745) for the hardware, and ¥10,000 (~$125) for each game mode.
