Check Out The Crazy Japanese Pissing Video Games

on December 9, 2014 3:30 PM

If you think I’m trolling you, I’m not. I’ve spent the past ten days in Tokyo, and I couldn’t go back home without showing you one of the craziest gaming-related implements in the archipelago of the rising sun.

If you’re offended by the mention of urine, this is your last chance of hitting that “back” button, otherwise get ready to laugh.

Back in 2012 Sega tried to launch the Toylet, a series of games installed in Japanese urinals. The goal is simple: to hit a spot in front of you as precisely as possible with as much of your urine as possible.

The games were supposed to be in testing until January 2011. The following commercial launch wasn’t exactly an explosive success, but a handful can still be found in some locations, including one of the Sega arcades in Akihabara.

And yesterday I went and checked them for you all.

I carefully prepared for the mission. I started with my favorite Japanese soft drink, a Kiwi-flavored soda named Skal that is so unpopular that this time around I could find it only in a single vendor machine at the Yoyogi station. I must seriously be the only human being in Tokyo who likes that thing.

Then, it was time for a nice, hot bowl of ramen in Akihabara. I had to build up on those liquids, after all.

After that, I was ready to tackle the challenge at one of the biggest arcades in the “Electric Town,” run by Sega itself.

Below you can see the three games that were installed in the men’s toilets on three different floors. All three can be played for free. I have no idea if there’s anything of the sort in the ladies’ restroom, as I didn’t have a female accomplice handy and didn’t really care for the idea of being arrested.

Unfortunately the results didn’t match the careful preparation, as you can see in the video below.

The first attempt was done using my own resources (which is why I spared your sensitive ears by muting the audio). Unfortunately the game reset in the middle, basically providing two halved results. No high score for me, but I guess I got two plays with one “coin.”

The second and third attempts were a bit of an experiment using a bottle of water. Apparently, though, the sensors are good enough to understand if you’re trying to cheat, so the games could be barely triggered with very poor results.

As you can see, I wasn’t trolling. I couldn’t make this up even if I wanted. If you’re curious about the games and want to see more, you can check out the trailers for the five titles that were produced just below.
