“Human doll” breaks video game record by playing for 38 hours
Authored by Rob Newberry
In what will certainly be one of the strangest news pieces we’ll be covering this week, a young woman named Kinumi Cati has broken the world record (unofficially) for playing a Japanese style roll-playing game by sitting through a marathon 38 hours in Final Fantasy X. Billed as a model and singer, Kinumi Cati (real name Hecaterina Kinumi) is reported to have played the PlayStation 2 game without breaks for food or drinks, and was fed by a friend during her attempt at breaking the record previously held by Phillip Kollar.
For those of you still reading, we’re pretty sure the record was actually broken in Spain and while most news sites are reporting Kinumi is from Japan, we at Pixel Enemy can’t find a single piece of evidence that substantiates this claim. Considering she speaks Spanish and the majority of the news coverage is in Spanish, we are of the opinion that the “major mainstream news outlets” have it wrong, and she is simply interested in Japanese culture.
If you’re still reading even now, you can see a video below of her touring the hotel room where the record was broken.
While most news sites say she broke the record “dressed as a living doll”, the video she has on her YouTube channel doesn’t seem to indicate that at all. In fact, by the looks of the video below, her hair doesn’t seem to be “dolled” up and she’s wearing glasses.
Pixel Enemy pride ourselves in getting to the bottom of the hard hitting news dear readers. Rest assured, we’ll dig deep into these inconsistencies and set the record straight for everyone concerned out there. We know it’s important to you.
In the meantime, congratulations Kinumi Cati – wherever you are.
Note: We’ve reached out to Kinumi Cati for a short interview and will update as we hear.
