Domino’s Japan Introduces Visual Novel About Sukiyaki
Domino’s Japan’s campaigns are often otaku-friendly, including coupons for kabe-don fans, Tiger & Bunny pizzas, and creating a virtual stage for Hatsune Miku.
This year the company is appealing to visual novel readers with its own game Suki-Yaki Okami. Domino’s Japan debuted a television commercial for the promotion that features what seems to be a real-world version of the woman in the game.
In the game, the stern 52-year-old proprietress of a sukiyaki shop in Kyoto and a 25-year-old employee of the shop finish their work after a long day. It’s late and the worker considers going home. But if he stays and helps the woman clean up the restaurant, he may be able to gain her praise. Could impressing the great hostess help the young worker move toward his dream of owning his own shop one day?
Players are tasked with successfully wooing the owner of a sukiyaki restaurant. If players manage not to infuriate her, they win a 50% off coupon for a large “sukiyaking” pizza. Players have to choose the proper option to impress the woman several times in order to receive the coupon.
