Transgender princess promotes Little King's Story in Japan

File this under: Things I'd like to see more of in the games industry.

According to the folks over at TinyCartridge.com, Marvelous has been promoting its latest release, Little King's Story for the Wii, with a contest designed to turn a down-on-his-luck commoner into an honest-to-goodness king (complete with a crown, cape and scepter).

More interesting to me than the man who would be king is the woman who was chosen to be his princess, Ayana Tsubaki. That's because the 25-year-old TV personality and model lived as a male before undergoing gender reassignment surgery in mid-2006.

Hopefully Tsubaki was hired because of her looks and personality and not because of her past.
