When we dug up trademarks for Ultimate Kiss and Soar! Maihane Senior High Theater Department we hazarded a guess that Square Enix might be developing otome games.
And, that’s exactly what’s happening.
Square Enix announced Soar! Maihane Senior High Theater Department for mobile phones today. The leading lady is a stage hand in Maihane High’s theater group. One day, an accident injures everyone at the program except you right before a tournament. This couldn’t have come at a worse time because the club is about to be closed because due to a lack of interest.
The only way to save Maihane High’s theater department is to recruit new male members so you can win the tournament and fall in love. Here are the four potential love interests.
Kaizuki Hitaka is 17 and popular since he is an ex-idol.
Hinata Kiryu is also seventeen. He’s a child actor who is a bit innocent.
Chikage Kiyosato is 16 and the star of a play.
Narushi Tsukioka is the oldest of the bunch at 18. He’s a script writer with a gentle-than-tough personality.
Soar! Maihane Senior High Theater Department is a free to play mobile phone game. The game uses a microtransaction model where players can buy items, although it isn’t clear what those are.
Soar! Maihane Senior High Theater Department is Square Enix’s first stab at the girl’s adventure game market. We wonder now, since it was trademarked at the same time, if Emperor Saga will be the second.
