Love Tore Sweet Is Like A Moe Version Of Dance Central

By Spencer . August 23, 2012 . 3:22pm

Boost On, a company that usually makes visual novels, is going where no Japanese publisher has gone before. They’re making a Japan-only Kinect game. Love Tore Sweet (that’s short for Love Training Sweet) is a dancing game where you copy what the girls do to dance.

 

There are moe mini-games like jumping rope, riding a see saw with her (which has the player alternate between squatting and standing up), and cheerleading. There’s also a variation of Red Light/Green Light called Daruma-san where you have to tip toe towards a girl while her back is turned. The goal of the game is tag her, but if she finishes chanting a spell you have to freeze in place.

 

Love Tore Sweet also has a "karaoke" mini-game where players raise their hands to the beat. Love Tore Sweet comes out on September 27 for Xbox 360.

    “There are moe mini-games”I honestly have no idea if that’s supposed to be a typo or not.

    Either way, I feel a strange disconnect between whom this game’s aesthetic appeals to and whom this game’s gameplay appeals to.

      Not a typo we’re referring to 萌え (moe). Yeah, it’s… pretty different!

      • Muffum

        I know what moe is, hence my confusion at whether or not it was a typo. I could have worded my confusion better, but yeah.

        • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

          Yeah, sorry for assuming you didn’t! Most people don’t so I should’ve done a better job explaining that too.

    Even if I love moe, I don’t think I could dance like they do… Wouldn’t feel right.

    Just like a lot of games from Boost On, this game is also part of an episodic series. The story of each episode is connected. Each game features 4 girls that differ from  other episodes, for a total of 12 different girls. Plus, each girl have different songs, sung by themselves during the dancing games.

    Also, that white school swimsuit you see on Kakyoin Tamao (the girl in the picture, voiced by Tanaka Rie) is a pre-order dlc only. So pre-order if you want it.

    I’m more interested in the Bitter episode, to be released in Jan next year. All 4 of the girls are voiced by actors whom I’m more familiar with, and they can sing pretty well.

      Collecting all 3 games cost a bunch..  I like the girl in the Mint version :)

    I love the 2D character artwork.
    Couldn’t find the artist at Pixiv unfortunately :(

    looks promising, the graphics is nice and the voice acting is nice as well.

    Too bad that the console is regional locked, otherwise it would have been a nice purchase.
