Old news for us, but Mirror’s Edge just launched in Japan. EA decided to promote the game by having someone dress up as Faith in Shibuya nighttime hotspot Womb. The person in the picture is Natsuki Kato who isn’t a stranger to cosplay or video games. She was a guest at the world cosplay summit and did a commercial for Super Robot Taisen Alpha. A good figurehead choice by EA, but they should have given Kato the wig they used in Italy so she looked more like Faith.
EA also has some did some cool looking building displays with vertical running and Faith gazing over people. Very neat stunts, but will things like this really sell Mirror’s Edge? Japanese commenters sound like they have mixed feelings about Faith’s character design.
