And by credit card, we don’t mean the Nintendo 3DS game has paid downloadable content. You need to sign up for a LovePlus Visa to unlock one of the in game items. After you’re accepted, Mitsui Sumitomo (that’s a bank) will send you a tangible ticket into the LovePlus universe, a Towano High student card.
Plug in your student ID from the card into New LovePlus for your bonus item an – uribo umbrella. The urbio is one of Mitsui Sumitomo’s mascots, so this is a collaboration item.
Players can give the uribo umbrella to their (virtual) girlfriend as a present. The card also rewards LovePlus fans with special items like sticker sets and cutesy subway pass holders of the three girls. This promotion is going to be a hit in Japan. Seriously!
