New York City’s live Japanese game show, “BATSU!” is headed to Chicago.

The interactive game show will feature a local cast of characters, “four warriors competing in comedic challenges to avoid electric shocks, paintballs, a giant egg-smashing chicken, and many more hilarious jaw-dropping punishments,” according to today’s official release.

The fun will take place at Kamehachi (1531 N. Wells), where patrons can enjoy their meals while taking in a live game show. Diners can also sign up for a chance to participate in the game show, too.
