The heroism of Captain Rainbow

Nintendo of Japan's Captain Rainbow media page now features three short commercials for Skip's latest game. All three start with the brassy Captain Rainbow theme and the caption "A new hero is born!" Then protagonist Nick, out of his heroic garb, demonstrates his awesome bravado by ... falling asleep and getting hit in the head a lot, or passing out in response to Birdo-kisses. Our favorite, however, features the Captain leaning into a giant treasure chest, Link-style.

There's also a more substantive, slightly more serious trailer that introduces the world and the characters (whom we have met). This really looks like the kind of quirky action-adventure that we could enjoy.
