Here’s a virtual reality game that got way to real.

The Japanese makers of a new arm-wrestling game are recalling all the machines after three players suffered broken arms at the hands of the mechanized arm of the game.

The game is called “Arm Spirit” and pits players against at mechanical arm. Players work their way up through ten successively harder levels of play, starting out at lower levels simulating a Chihuahua and bar maid and working up to a professional wrestler.

All 150 games that are out on the market in Japanese arcades have been recalled. No machines have been sent to the U.S.
