Pizza Hut is going intergalactic by opening a virtual restaurant in the Gurhal Galaxy in Phantasy Star Portable 2.

 

This (sponsored?) partnership adds Cheese-kun figures (he’s the mascot of Pizza Hut in Japan) to the game as optional room decorations. Players can also arm themselves with a Pizza Hut brand cardboard box shield and a pizza pan weapon. Delicious.

 

The store appears to sell three other items: seafood pizza for 2,500 meseta, cheese & cheese pizza for 1,900 meseta, and a cup of coffee for 1,000 meseta.

    Oh, man, I’d kill to eat fish pizza. With fried shrimp or something.

    I think Pizza Hut has gotten a little boost in the nerd culture after their little spots in the anime Code Geass. Thirty bucks for a large pizza better be soaked with mushroom and pepperchinis 5 inches high if I’m gonna pay that much, though.

      And you could get Pizza Hut power ups in the Code Geass DS rpg game

    It’d be so awesome if SEGA snuck in a feature where your ingame avatar bloated up after eating Cheese & Cheese Pizza.

    (Seriously, Pizza Hut’s stuff is so greasy over here. I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else)

      Ever try Little Caesars? After one bite and you’re practically swimming in greasy cheese, but it’s oh-so-good.

      You’re totally on point, Ishaan. I’m pretty sure Pizza chains worldwide are greasy beyond belief. Haha. Bloated a la Fat Princess style. “Oh no, I can’t outrun anything! “

      @Matty: I don’t think it’s called the same thing over here…

      @Qoo: You know, Domino’s isn’t that bad. But their pizzas tend to suck in general. They’re so…dry.

    As someone who plays games to escape the real world for a while, I’m really not happy with stuff like this. Better get used to it, though.

      I’m cool with it when it’s fun and not REAL ads or if it’s strictly comical (Read: No More Heroes’ Pizza Butt). I would have been fine if there was just the Pizza Box available to use as a shield but I actually dislike seeing the sign on the billboard. Then it’s forced on you and in your face. =P

    “Sell out, with me oh yea, sell out, with me tonight!”

    I’m going to be furious if this doesn’t stay intact when the game makes it over to the States.

    Wait, you can equip shields now?

    Ugh, finally. Way to be about 6 years too late, Faux-Phantasy Star.

      That pic makes me miss my little FOnewearl’s (legit!) Tripolic Shield from the GC days :(…

      That box is a whole lot larger than the Tripolic, but I doubt cardboard protects well as ‘newly discovered tripoli’. But if you held that box up to the dragon and let him breathe on it……yum melted greasy cheese pizza!

    There are Evangelion costumes too. The players use the Lance of Longinus as a weapon. I hope they don’t remove all these fanservice costumes for the American release.

    I have to agree somewhat. I’m not too fond of in game advertisements. I think for now its “cute” and novel idea, but I’m sure in the not too distance future, it will become more of a “non advertisement edition” for an extra fee or a lower price game featuring advertisements.

    But c’mon on, Phantasy Star?? I can see it in Shenmue or Call of duty, but too me this is just stupid.

    • kazalt

      Yeah, nods to anime and other forms of media are fine, but product placement is where I draw the line.

    Wow. I thought pizza was enough but Cheese-kun just made it even more awesome. Code Geass aside, Cheese-kun is adorable
