ONE Store Beta Now Available

The new installment to Kratos’ deity death simulator, God of War: Ragnarok has broken out its fair share of gimmicks upon release. From larger-than-life murals to boxes of goodies, we get our fair share of fanfare and fun. But if you haven’t seen the official Playstation God of War: Ragnarok Japan Ad, then you haven’t seen ’em all.

What we get is a childrens’ show rendition of what would be the super gist of God Of War: Ragnarok. Well, maybe. It comes complete with a catchy tune, Shin-SASUKE legend Hiromichi Sato, backup dancers, and some moves you can try on your own–because we know it’s already stuck on your head. We feel it’s only apropos that Sato-san would be the one presenting this. I mean, he could probably survive the game in real life, given his skillset.

God of War: Ragnarok is out now for Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. Check out our review if you’re looking to pick up this brand new installment.
