Usavich DS Game Announced by Namco Bandai

on October 7, 2011 1:45 PM

Namco Bandai announced today a game based on the anime series Usavich, to be released (in Japan) for the Nintendo DS  on December the 8th.

Usavich is not your usual anime, but a series of short animated skits about two soviet rabbits named Kireneko and Putin. Not only it’s extremely original, but it’s also absolutely hilarious, so much that despite the fact that it’s never been aired in the west, it still has a quite solid fanbase outside Japan. The fact that there’s no spoken dialogue definitely helps (and it may help even if the game doesn’t get localized in the west, as the game itself probably won’t have much text or dialogue as well).

The DS game will be a minigame collection, and hopefully will manage to capture the absolutely hilarious nature of the anime. If you check beyond the cut you can see the official box art, a few screenshots, and the first season of the anime, just to let you understand what we’re talking about. Watch it at your own risk, though, because it’s absolutely addictive and it might steal your soul.
