Wii Video Channel Coming to Japan, Wants Your Blood

The "Wii no Ma" (Wii Room) video channel is going live in Japan on May 1st. While no plans have been announced for the US yet, here's a quick rundown on the service:


• It asks your age
• It asks your blood type (seen as a personality defining trait in some eastern cultures)
• You watch a free or ad-supported video (cartoons or family-oriented programming)
• You rate that video
• You can also learn about various services/products (watch more ads)
• Some content (videos and coupons) can be downloaded to the DSi

And as Kotaku points out, the whole thing sounds like one big market research study. But by all means, decide for yourself after watching the promo spot below that's running in Japan. [Kotaku]
