Sasuke stars to appear in Ginza

Today has been on HELL of a roller coaster. Okay let me get you updated. M9 pulling the plug on it's mobile ap is definitely gone for good. Muscle Park Odaiba (Tokyo) is closing in October, 2010. The better news from that depression is that Sasuke website is BACK (with the following announcement). As you recall I wrote the blog yesterday that the website was gone. I swear someone paid the bill or something because not only is it back.. then added new news (which is the point of this particular blog entry).

I got an email from one of the STQ'ers who was lamenting the passing of the Odaiba Muscle Park was but was happy to report that in Japan he could see the SasukeMania website today! I went to check and sure enough it came back during the overnight hours (USA) and mid afternoon in Japan. What's more.. there was additional news about an upcoming Sasuke related event.

SASUKE Challenger events to be held!

(16 September 2010 18:45)
Coming September 21 (Tue) ~ 17 o'clock AppleStore, Ginza by, iPhone / iPad / iPod touch for gaming "SASUKE Challenger" events will be held in an introduction.

Guest Makoto Nagano, Mr. Urushibara Yuuzi, Mr. Iketani Naoki, Daisuke Nakata's coming!

For details, AppleStore, Ginza Please check the website.

The news was added to the front page of Sasukemania and linked information about an event going on on Tuesday, September 21, 2010 in downtown Tokyo in the area called Ginza 銀座. It's actually an Apple Store. If everyone remembers that in the Spring Monster 9 actually got an ap for the Iphone called Sasuke Challenger that was available for purchase worldwide! Please read Ube's review of the intial release. It seems Monster 9 is going to have a launch party for an updated version? Or not.. either way.. they are doing SOMETHING with Sasuke people so right now I'll take that as good news.. It's not Sasuke 26.. but I'll take it.

The four Sasuke Stars that are coming are 2 Champions and 2 Muscle Musical Members. Sasuke Champion and Allstar - Makoto Nagano 長野誠 and our current Sasuke Champion Yuuji Urushihara 漆原裕治 (both who visited the United States recently), Monster box World Record Holder Naoki Iketani 池谷直樹 and Olympic Trampolinist Daisuke Nakata 中田大輔 will all be in the Apple Store in Ginza on Tuesday to help promote the Iphone/IPad..

My hope is to see Nagano in pics attempting to play this game.. I just don't see him as a technogeek.. but what do I know :p I want pics dammit! I for one am happy even if the event is small in scope and promoting a game that's a few months old. It brings Sasuke back into the forefront. I'm now thinking how Ube has been thinking all along that they are just pruning dead weight in closing things that are not helping them and sticking with what they know is working. Hope that's good news for Sasuke 26.. one could hope!

My guess is that it has not been doing well financially for a while. The new one seems to be doing well so far.
