Only in Japan could you find an arcade game based on arm wrestling, and only in Japan would it be recalled for breaking three punter’s arms. Arm Spirit, manufactured by Altus, was recalled after they recieved 150 complaints that the machine had broken 3 people’s arms, you have to wonder what the 150 people were complaining about, that fact of the broken arms or the fact that the cabinet didn’t rip the arms out of sockets and beat the losers with the soggy end. Which is what would happen if you arm wrestled for real in some of the pubs round my way.
