LET'S TAP BOX ART AND PARTY TRAILER CLICK HERE

NOT THAT WE'RE EXCITED OR ANYTHING. (MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK.)

Look, Let's Tap is ridiculous. We know this. But it's the kind of ridiculous so extreme, I can't help being excited about it--especially because, honestly, the game is kind of fun. Playing games with a cardboard box is either the stupidest idea ever, or the smartest idea ever, or perhaps both.

Here's a new trailer.
  


Here's the box art.


As of press time, Sega still has not responded to inquiries about the inclusion of a special box controller within the shipping box.

So, you just hit the box? How is that any different from waggling?

The E3 bombcast about Let's Tap is an instant classic.

I've been collecting boxes from Amazon in anticipation. Looking forward to doing some mad box modding.

Who can afford four cardboard boxes during the current economic difficulties?  Get real, Nintendo.

To think this guy brought us Sonic the hedgehog. The box looks like any generic Wii 3rd party game out there. Might get it if its cheap

Am I the only one who finds playing a game called "Let's Tap!" with your family wierd?

Posted by Zombutler

buahahahahahahaha

Posted by DukeTogo

I'm curious how it works with that stupid condom on the wiimote absorbing the minute vibrations.  And the box art makes it look like some sort of keep the dildo away from me game.  The game itself looks fun and has some great music, but I'm afraid the stupidity of the Western Wii audience has ruined any chance for this game.

As for it coming with an extra box, I'm sure it's extra money and perfect to bilk money out of the saps.

Posted by eddyka2

are the boxes included?

Posted by GeekDown

This might be the most retarded game ever.

Posted by Rekt_Hed

"Lets TAP!" ...Lets NOT XD

Wow.. Take the simplest control scheme of all time, basically a stick you wag and wave through the air, call it complicated and make it "easier". It's like a revolution to the Nintendo Revolution.,,, *sigh*

._. What the hell were they smoking when they came up w/ THAT ?

Posted by Double0hFor

and game companies wonder why they are going bankrupt........

Posted by ScriptKitty

I'd tap that.

Posted by LordAndrew

That family looks a little too excited.

Posted by Gearhead

Is anyone really creeped out by that family. I need to go back in that video to make sure that the dad has both fingers on the box...

Posted by Hector

I hope the boxes are included!

Posted by Majkiboy

This game is totally AWESOME. Some friends imported it from the big Japan. MAN IT'S FUN!
Maybe not if you're alone, but with friends! The thing with the boxes is that it adds to the game mechanics and strategy. You have to find the best resonating box! My DVD player for instance is AWESOME for this game :D!!
Some friends liked to just bash the table withouth a box at all and some guys put the wiimote inside the box :)
Although I recomend not to play 4 players on the same table, .. someome will allways bash so had that it'll resonate in your box..

You get one box btw :) Atleast you did in Japan!
The "condom" shouldn't affect mutch. I think it can help since it'll help the mote not sliding of the box.

One last word... It's CRAZY :D!

Posted by angelkanarias

this is a joke, right?

Posted by Reverseface

I'D TAP THAT BOX ALRIGHT!!!!!! yeah i went there ok......

Posted by Otzlowe

SMILE MORE, YOU'LL APPEAR MORE FRIENDLY TO CUSTOMERS. If the Olympics had it, why shouldn't we?!


This game looks like a gateway to some pretty swift violence if you ask me.

Did someone make April Fools Day, into April Fools Month and not tell me? Cause I don't remember getting a memo or an email or a text message about it.

Posted by CL60

Is it just me or was anybody else really pissed off at the people playing it.

Posted by Meltbrain

Let's Tap? No. Let's Not.

Posted by abombb

And then your clumsy friend will trip and smash the boxes!  Then what will you have?

Posted by REDRUN

I'll tap that...

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Oh Wii, you will never cease to amaze, confuse, and terrify me.

Posted by TripMasterMunky

Watch as this game destroys all those other companies trying so hard to make a game in sales

Posted by gakon

Even when you're not holding the Wii Remote, you need that dang sleeve on it.

Posted by Dan_CiTi

As much as I love this game (I pirated the japanese version), that video was quite painful to watch.

Posted by Milkman

Seriously, how many people are gonna say "I'd tap that"?

Wat? They have. The game box is the box controller.
Posted by Dan_CiTi

I'm surprised so few people in the comments here know about the game. Also, please don't start another trend of faggotry by saying "I'd tap that" in regards to the game.
