Arm Spirit, has recalled 150 arm wresting video game machines after three players broke their arms.
|“We think that maybe some players get over-excited and twist their arms in an unnatural way,” a spokesman said.An investigation has been launched into the incidents and the machines are being checked for any malfunctions.
“The machine isn’t that strong, much less so than a muscular man. Even women should be able to beat it,” company spokesman Ayano Sakiyama told AP news agency.
Arm Spirit gamers advance through 10 levels, pitting their strength against a French maid, a drunken martial arts master and a Chihuahua dog before reaching the final challenge – a professional wrestler.
It is not available outside Japan.
**This machine is not that strong? Hmm..wonder if their was a few pissed off engineers on that project then? That would show corporate after not giving them a raise. LOL!
