My favorite sumo related thing:  the animal picture scroll,  with sumo of frog and rabbit  -  now it is in a video game: Choju-Giga Wars for Nintendo Switch, as download available in the Nintendo eShop on March 1st

not much sumo left - just the frog loves it and is fond of harite

I'll post real sumo video game news from Japan here as well, except about the official NSK game.

"Sumo Roll - the road to yokozuna" is a new game from Studio Kingmo, to raise a yokozuna all the way from jonokuchi - free from App store and Google play, but maybe only available in Japan? Even if so, with APK managers one can get it just like the NSK game app.

In Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, you do some sumo training with the mayor of a local town, and you later take on a bigger character. Sadly, despite being just a small part of the game, it's about the most developed video sumo I've seen.

I would LOVE a really developed game for PS4 or X-Box. I doubt it would be too difficult to make, but I guess the demand's not there.

I remember playing that years ago, but I hadn't seen sumo before, so I did not make the connection.

I used to be an avid gamer back in the day, my favourite games were beat-em-up's and apart from E.Honda (who figurine Akinomaki has posted) I can remember two other characters who were rikishi.

http://tekken.wikia.com/wiki/Ganryu

http://virtuafighter.wikia.com/wiki/Taka-Arashi

E.Honda was one of my favourite characters in SF, he would shout 'Dosukoi!" during his victory pose and his bouts took part in a communal bath, he also wore red kumodori (隈取) make-up. Capcom(street fighter's developers) were eager to capitalise on sumo's international interest and created the character for foreigners to ignite interest in Japan as a whole (hence the kumodori, blending two very Japanese things together, Kabuki and Sumo)

Great thread...

My apologies this should read "took place in a communal bath"... autocorrect is such a pain.

I can't edit my posts. I'm sorry to add a pointless message to this thread.
