Interesting Import Video Game #5: N.U.D.E.@

Import Video Game: N.U.D.E.@ or Natural Ultimate Digital Experiment for the Xbox


The Japanese market often gets really interesting and even experimental video games. This is one of those games. In N.U.D.E.@ (or Natural Ultimate Digital Experiment) for the Xbox, you are given a female robot, named P.A.S.S. (or Personal Assist Secretary System... I know, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense) who comes into the world with very limited knowledge. You are charged with teaching P.A.S.S. how to do a variety of tasks using voice commands. Of course, many will find P.A.S.S. to be a relatively attractive female humanoid robot... that's partially the point.

Unfortunately, this game is so rare that I was unable to find any videos of gameplay, but I was able to find the Japanese trailer, so you can at least see P.A.S.S. come to life in front of your very eyes! If anybody out there knows of a gameplay trailer on YouTube, let me know in the comments, and I'll add it in!

Edit: Well, I did have the Japanese trailer, but it was removed from YouTube. However, I did find the rare English trailer (admittedly in lower quality), and I think that will work just fine.

Where to find it:

Well, Play-Asia lists this item, but it's currently out of stock. If you would like to check their listings, go right ahead. Due to the extreme rarity of this game, it might not be in stock. Alternatively, you can try eBay, but honestly, the game is SO rare, that only a few copies show up on eBay per year. This is a real collector's item.

Have fun playing!
