A Japanese game maker said Wednesday it would withdraw arm-wrestling machines from arcades after three players -- two of them foreigners -- broke their arms.
Players would choose a strength level from 10 characters, ranging from a maid to a professional wrestler, and face off with an artificial arm on the other side of the table.

A 25-year-old South Korean man broke his right arm while playing the game in Osaka, while a 19-year-old Frenchman and 24-year-old Japanese man also suffered arm fractures, the company said.

Atlus, a Tokyo-based arcade game maker, said it will remove the 155 machines of the game -- called "Udedamashii," which means Arms Spirits -- which were put into service just a month ago.

"We had done careful simulations on the possibility of injuries before putting it on sale, but unexpected accidents can happen with game machines when people are too excited or fail to follow instructions," a company spokeswoman said.

"But I'm afraid some foreign nationals couldn't understand the instructions well as it was written only in Japanese," she said.

"When the robot flips its hat around, it's like it becomes a different person," she said.

By paying 100 yen, or just under one dollar, the player would have two battles of strength.
The real article

I'm wondering what the instructions were at this point. Don't be a tough guy?

Japanese people... why can't they just get drunk at a bar and arm wrestle people? Like normal people.

I just hope for their pride's sake that it was the professional wrestler that broke their arm. If they got it broke by they made, well then their friends/family will never let them live it down.

Much Love

I tried to arm wrestle some drunk Japanese guys at the top of Mt. Fuji yesterday, but they would have none of it.

Well, that's a lie, but I was at the top of Fuji yesterday. Does that count?

Hey, its a japanese machine.
I am amazed that no poor bastard thought it was supposed to give handjobs.

I did slip and fall a few times on the way down. It was probably because I was running down the equivalent of six inches of marbles.
