Konami has drafted some star power to help sell its new DS game, New International Hyper Sports DS. The company announced today that Coolpoko, a comedy duo consisting of comedians Senchan and Majime Ono, will lead the "ouendan," or cheering squad, for the game. The two will appear at a special website that's set to go live next month and will also be seen in retail promotional videos.
New International Hyper Sports DS is a revival of the classic Hyper Sports series. The game features 24 events, including 100 meter dash and weight lifting, playable as characters both original and pulled from the Konami family.
Look for the game on July 24 at 4,500 yen.
