History

Toro, a cat who wishes to be human, is Sony's mascot in Japan.[1]

Toro first appeared in July 1999 as the main character (chatterbot) in the video game Doko Demo Issyo (also written as Doko Demo Issho, meaning "Together everywhere") on the Sony PlayStation, and included support for the PocketStation produced by the same company. Toro also appears in the PlayStation 2 video game Ape Escape Million Monkeys by SCE. In December 2004, Dokodemo Issho was released on the PSP, a free demo being available in the Japanese PlayStation Store. Toro also stars in the PlayStation 3 title Mainichi Issho ("Everyday together"), a talk show-like game where Toro delivers daily news together with Kuro, his black cat neighbor. The "ToroStation" show is a pun on the PlayStation series. Players can also answer trivia questions to win game money (Myale) and prizes such as furniture to decorate Toro's in-game apartment. An online IQ versus test game is also possible. Mainichi Issho is available free of charge download in the Japanese PlayStation Store only. More recently, Toro appeared as a playable character in Everybody's Golf 5, the fifth installment in the long-running golf series. A Toro costume is also available as a downloadable costume in the game LittleBigPlanet. Toro also appears as a costume in the PlayStation 3 game Tales of Graces F.[2] At the Tokyo Game Show in September 2011, Toro and Kuro were announced as exclusive fighters for the PS3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the upcoming Street Fighter X Tekken fighting game by Capcom as product placement; Toro will mimic Ryu's fighting style, while Kuro will mimic Kazuya's fighting style.[3]
