If you haven’t picked up your copy of Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove 3D, fear not! It turns out you may have picked the right title to procrastinate on purchasing. Natsume announced via their facebook page yesterday that as a special Halloween promotion, fans will receive 10 dollars off their purchase as well as a limited edition Gabrielle figure this week.
This game is creating a bit of hype amongst music gaming fans. I remember back in the days of young, “Um Jammer Lammy” was the most kooky, addictive thing I’d ever experienced. Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove 3D has set itself apart using, what I believe to be the same technique. Most music games in the industry have made the mistake of trying to be too realistic. I’m not trying to insult Just Dance, but if I wanted to see myself dancing and singing, I’d grab a hair brush and stand in front of a mirror (which I do… often!) Ghostly Groove, just like Jammer Lammy, couples interesting, unique characters with a ridiculous story.
In Ghostly Groove, you play as the loveable, Gabrielle, a girl who doesn’t get too excited about things. I certainly don’t mind this considering all the kawaii desu desu desu business coming from Japan these days. Part of her personality mights stem from the fact that she’s misplaced her soul from, of all things, sneezing too hard. Remember as a child? I don’t believe it anymore… but if someone didn’t say “bless you” after you sneezed, the devil would take your soul. Saying bless you crams your soul back in, right?
Anyway, this is the type of game that simply must be experienced, not to understand it because it makes no sense, but to enjoy the characters, world, story and decent beats that come from it. So, take the chance, get a figure and let us know if Gabrielle’s Ghostly Groove 3D has you tapping your toes.
This great deal is available from now until Nov 5th @ 12:00pm PST, exclusively at the Natsume Online Store!
