Japan is Crazy: Dekotora sim comes out for Wii
Are you sick of racing games? Has the endless wait made you wish for Gran Turismo 5 Epilogue, already? Does Need for Speed no longer meet your needs? Are you a Burnout burnout? Are you finished with Gotham and ready to manage a new project? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, get thee to Japan. Gamers there have been rewarded with the ultimate driving sim: Zenkoku Dekotora Matsuri.
That's right -- this week, Japan got a dekotora driving sim for the Wii. From what we can gather, the point of the game is to build your own dekotora from the ground up until you have the best acid trip on wheels that money can buy. You do this (we think) by battling against other trucks for delivery jobs and making them in the fastest, most efficient manner. Your enemies in this quest are wrong turns and traffic, which can cramp your style and force you to stand on the brakes. As you can see in the game trailer after the jump, the truck models have plenty of dive programmed in. This is all experienced in the Wii's breathtaking last-gen graphics, to boot. As you progress, your cash lets you customize every aspect of your rig -- there's even an MS Paint-style element for custom airbrushing. If you've dreamt of a driving sim that lets you build a delivery truck that's lit up like Vegas and looks like it has Star Trek warp nacelles hanging off the cargo box, you need to score yourself an import Wii as soon as possible.
