Spike is known for publishing the “ultra violence” in Japan. They’re the daring publisher who brought Prey to Japan ad they’re publishing No More Heroes for the Wii. Seeing Kurukuru Princess: Figure Skating Ice Angel for the Nintendo DS in Spike’s lineup is a deviation from Samurai Western. The game is played on the touch screen where you can draw a path for one of the three figure skaters. I can’t think of many games based on ice skating so this might be a first for the DS and a new direction for Spike.
