Japan finally gets themselves some demo kiosks


For those of you who've had the luxury of stopping by a Wii demo kiosk and giving Super Mario Galaxy or Wii Sports a whirl, it's time to embrace our downtrodden brothers and sisters in Japan. They're finally getting Wii demo kiosks for the first time, starting on the 26th of this month. All because of a little game called Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

So why did it take so long to get demo kiosks to Japanese consumers? Fear of accidents caused by arm-flailing participators, who might throw caution to the wind, along with their fists and elbows. It would seem the benefits of getting the game into the hands of Japanese gamers far outweighs the possible repercussions of an accident.

Personally, we're being a bit selfish about the whole thing. The idea of Japan getting demo versions of Super Smash Bros. Brawl indicates that those of us who know of a nearby demo kiosk can swarm it in the case that we're as lucky and get access to a demo build for the game. Let's hope so.
