SNK clearly thinks it knows its native Japanese market well, otherwise it would never have the cojones to pimp a game as twisted as Dokidoki Majosaiban (Exciting Witch Trial) for kiddies' favorite, the Nintendo DS.

The clever/totally screwed-up otaku behind the game have decided that using the touchscreen on the DS to fondle women (dressed as schoolgirls, naturally) is by far the best way to determine if they're witches. Errr.

I'd expect this kind of thing from a niche publisher – God knows there are enough stores that specialize in this stuff here – but SNK? Anyway, as the pic above suggests, there's also a Wii version in the works, which sounds doubly unpleasant given all the jigging about Wii owners are likely to dig.

DISCUSSION

Just to open the political can of worms, here:

So, playing a game where you control animated characters doing drive-by shootings is OKAY, but controling a character that looks at animated teenage girls panties is WRONG?

Seriously, folks, if you think it is okay to control a character that is killing people, justified by saying 'I am not doing it in real life', then surely the same justification can be used on this, right?

They both seem questionable - and wonderful, all at the same time.
