Today Sega announced details on a North American and European release of Let's Tap, one of the weirdest games that we saw at last year's Tokyo Game Show. The big detail: it's coming out in North America and Europe (this summer).
If you don't remember, this is the Wii exclusive developed by Yuju Naka's newish studio Prope that has you placing your Wii remote on a cardboard box and then tapping that box to play the game. Yes, you read all that correctly--whether you're blushing at the double entendres inherent in discussing this game, or you're just baffled at the silly concept.
All kidding aside, I actually had fun playing Let's Tap. It's a bunch of minigames. You can get down with that, right? The game features briefly in this video oddity we shot at TGS.
In Japan, Let's Tap shipped with its own custom box controller...inside the game box. A box within a box. That kind of metapackaging is almost enough to make you forgive Naka's weirdo design indulgences.
Sega didn't respond to inquiries about the inclusion of the box in North America, but given the harsh economic climate, who could blame them for avoiding the extra cardboard overhead?
