When you play the game, you have to dance timing your steps to the display served by the game software. Of course a hard work! Now some game manufacturers release game software for private use. As you know, houses (or rooms) in Japan are very small. If you in Japan play such games, people in the neighborhood will get very angry! They will say, "Don't make so much noise!!!"
    As you know, Giant Baba (Mr. Shouhei Baba, a famous wrestler) was dead in 1999. Therefore martial art game softwares dealing with All Japan Professional Wresting were released.

  82. 08/08/99; I went to Tokyo Big Site to see Wonder Festival. Kaiyoudou (Osaka) holds the event twice a year. It thought "Creating private figure dolls" was a special hobby for elite. Therefore it is not a good tendency that the hobby is popularized. Kaiyoudou started a new bland "Wonder Showcase" in order to promote several original and radical figure doll creators under its protection at Wonder Festival.
