Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces takes off January 12


And now that I know this fact, I have decided, before playing it, that Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces is going to suck. It's going to suck because it is coming out on January 12th, and I won't be in a position to actually play it until at least January 16th. And after watching the film, I've never been more excited about getting my hands on this Wii game.

Of course, this raises questions as to why I'd actually want to play the game following the film, as its existence is ostensibly a great exercise in missing the point, but to that I respond with this question: "Weren't those dogfighting scenes totally sweet?"

Because they were. And that's exactly what I would want from a Sky Crawlers video game. Watching a kid carefully fold his newspaper for fifteen seconds is best left to the film. Besides, from what I hear, the game's narrative setup places it in a comfortable niche, mercifully spared with the burden of being meaningful.

Still, it's going to suck. The only way now that they can convince me otherwise prior to my actually playing it is to confirm the presence of a Basset Hound, as shown in the picture above.

That is your challenge, Project Aces and XSEED. Confirm the Basset Hound.
