Love Plus Expands With Manga, Figures, And Arcade Mini-Game

Konami sent out a press release earlier in the week, explaining what Love Plus + adds to the girlfriend simulation experience its predecessor introduced. On the feature list are the obvious customization elements you’d expect like more clothing styles, hairstyles, hair colors etc. , but also more interesting features like traveling to vacation spots and new "communication functions.

 

They’ve also confirmed that the game is compatible with Love Plus save data, and that you’ll be able to continue from your previous game profile, which is important in order to let each individual game remain in character. Meanwhile, a translated Famitsu report with producer Akari Uchida reveals that LovePlus + will be the third DS game to use a 4 gigabit cartridge.

 

The most interesting part of Konami’s press release was this: "KONAMI is moving forward with multifaceted projects involving “LOVEPLUS.” Some of the various roll-outs in the works include creating a manga version; putting it into a mini-game for “The ☆ BishiBashi,” a KONAMI game machine for amusement facilities; and the sale of figurines and other related products."

 

We’ve said before on the site that Love Plus has the potential to be a highly-customized experience that can cater to a wide demographic by focusing on different settings, ages and themes. It should be interesting to see if Konami feel the same way, especially considering the potential of a 3DS overhaul. Love Plus + is scheduled for a summer 2010 release in Japan.

      Well, the part of it that’s Japan, anyway.

      Wish they’d release stuff like this in America occasionally…

    Can’t say I’ve played the game but I’m disappointed that as with most games of this nature, it will never get localized. Regardless, I really like Mino☆Taro’s character designs, especially for Rinko. That said, I’ve recently purchased the short artbook devoted to her. There are ones for the other two girls as well. About half of it is illustrations and the other half is design work. So those interested in LovePlus products might want to check them out. *is hoping there will be a good figure of Rinko*

    EDIT: I just looked and some of the products are already available for pre-order from various sites like AmiAmi. No figures yet.
