When we mentioned Idea Factory’s first Wii game there wasn’t much information besides maids and motion controlled cleaning tools. Just what do players do in Osouji Sentai Clean Keeper?
It’s not housework.
Osouji Sentai Clean Keeper is broken into two parts. Like many of Idea Factory’s other games there is an adventure portion, which plays out like a Japanese style dating game. You guide Kurou Manamoto, a high school student, in conversations with girls who are fellow clean keepers. The problem is some of them get covered by starburst pieces of dirt, which you need to “clean” with the remote.
To do complete the task you point at one of the colorful grimy spots and press the b button to lock on. Next, you use a tool from your cleaning arsenal and a motion to wipe the dirt away. The hand brush is controlled by swaying the remote horizontally while the colocolo floor cleaner uses a jabbing motion. I guess the feather duster works by waving the remote and the whip reacts by a snapping motion. Wait… a whip for housework?
While there is a sexual undercurrent to Osouji Sentai Clean Keeper it is risky not racy. The title is rated CERO C (T equivalent) and to date there has not been a CERO Z (AO equivalent) rated game on the Wii. If you want to see the whole thing in action there is a video over on the official Osouji Sentai Clean Keeper site. Be warned that there may be potentially not safe for work content so you might want to watch it at home to avoid getting strange looks from adjacent coworkers.
