At first Sega's upcoming DS game was called Project Rub. Then it was I Would Die for You. Then, in the US, it was Feel the Magic: XY-XX. And now, as word reaches us that Sega's endlessly alluring DS project will be getting a UK release, it's called...[br]Well, we're not sure yet. But we do know that it won't go under any of those other crazy monikers, particularly the Bo Selecta-inspired Feel the Magic ("Can you feel it? The magic is coming..."). We've heard whispers that a UK name has been agreed on though, so we'll keep you posted.[br][br]And whatever Sega's game is called, it still sounds like a fully mental barrel of laughs rolling down a hillside. It's the story of a young man obsessed with a beautiful young woman, who must rub, poke and tickle his way into her pants, sorry, heart.[br][br]Don't worry. He's not a sex pest, even if it sounds dodgy. The best way to think of Project Rub is a Wario Ware-style collection of mini-games linked together by the over-arcing romantic storyline. The twist here is that every single one of the 30 plus games uses the innovative features of the DS in clever ways.[br][br]We've heard about a stack of mini-games so far. You'll be wiping muck off of your girl's face (behave), squeezing fish out of your mate's stomachs, digging in the sand for lost possessions and using the built-in DS mic to blow out candles on a cake. Mental.[br][br]But one game we've been told is particularly brilliant involves tapping in numeric codes into a little touch screen number pad to save little men plummeting from the sky. Tap in the correct code quickly enough and a wee parachute will open, saving their lives.[br][br]What that's got to do with copping off with the girl is anyone's guess, but if it's a good laugh (and we're reliably informed it's an absolute hoot) then it doesn't really matter.[br][br]The US get Project Rub (or Feel the Magic or whatever) on November 21, making it a launch title. While we know the UK version will definitely be getting a release there's no word on dates yet, but expect it to be on shelves when the DS hits these shores. [br][br]We're really keen to get a closer look at Project Rub, and we'll let you know our impressions as soon as we do.
