cb_d3_48Just last month, D3Publisher released a quirky 3DS game where you play as a girl who catches their cheating boyfriend red handed. Assault the Cheating Boyfriend! must have been pretty successful because a sequel with a new set of jerks is slated for release on March 6 as a Nintendo eShop download in Japan.


@Simple DL Series Vol. 8: The Cheating Boyfriend – The Price of Cheating plays pretty much like the predecessor. Before you can confront your boyfriend you have to get evidence by snooping around and collecting items…

… which you can throw at your soon-to-be ex using the gyro sensor controls.

The goal of the game is to have enough evidence to point out contradictions to expose your boyfriend’s lies.

Mike, an 18 year old pick up artist from America, is one of the dudes you date.

You meet Mike in Shibuya when he was wandering around. He speaks in broken Japanese, but you decide to go with him because that’s charming. You’ve heard that foreigners are fast movers and as expected he asks you to hang out on the same day. You go over to his house and… are those traces of a girlfriend from America? You can’t let him get away with that, right?


Shoji is a 24 year old engineer.

Six months ago, you met Shoji at a group dating party. He’s a secretive guy and kind of shy. Up until this point, you haven’t even held his hand. Because he’s distant you don’t know what to think of him and decide to surprise him at his place. Nervously, you make the bold move to show up at his doorstep.


Suguru is a 20 year old visual kei band member.

You’re a big fan of Suguru’s band where he’s a bassist and confess your love to him. Much to your surprise, Suguru accepts your confession and everything seems great… until you hear he booked a motel room. Uh oh… well he tours so maybe it’s because he’s performing? Uncertain about Suguru’s intentions you decide to set the record straight.


Atsushi is a 22 year old actor wannabe/freeloader.

Atsushi has been your boyfriend for five years. His goal is to be an actor, but since work is unstable he doesn’t have any money. The little cash he has he spends on clothes, but you aren’t bothered by this because you want to support his dream. And then you discover he brought another woman into your room! Your patience has reached its limits, which means it’s time to confront him!

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Suguru looks the best, but what is up with the red shirt guys hair/forehead?

  • Hatsuu

    I have never screamed, “Damn you, region-locking!” so loudly before in my life.

    • This. I NEED this on my 3DS.

    • We have to throw the Region-Locked 3DS at Nintendo with our gyro-sensors!

  • kylehyde

    Wow, this girl is like a japenese version of taylor swift. At least doesn’t write annoying songs.

  • PoweredByHentai

    The “shuraba start” is always hilarious.

  • What can you do in the bathroom? Plant a bomb?

  • DuskSharkEX

    Hm…I wonder if the cheating angle gets subverted at one point or another. I
    mean, there can be some catastrophic misunderstandings, y’know.

  • Heh They even make them look suspicious Not even the sweet/innocent looking one that breaks your heart into a million pieces… Suguru kiinda fits that. Atsushi just looks like he wants to kill something…

  • ZEROthefirst

    I hope I’m not the only one who saw the title and thought “Holy shit another Catherine game!”

  • ToshiChan

    Is there really not a storyline where you’re not a jealous insecure person and your boyfriend is actually not cheating on you

  • Miss_Madness

    You know if I was this girl and all the guys I was dating were cheating on me. I’d just go cold turkey and stop dating. Because i clearly have terrible taste in men.

    (This is just the scenario where she’s not just being paranoid and insecure about the cheating )

  • aznjon13

    Looks like Phoenix Wright with shitty boyfriends.

  • JustThisOne

    Guurrl, you choosin’ all the weird fish in the sea. Who the hell dates a freeter right after a visual kei band member?

    • Or the fact tht she dating 8 cheating BF in a row :P

      • M’iau M’iaut

        But doesn’t that also make her an 8x cheater? We’ve got an English word for girls like that.

    • psycho_bandaid

      it sound like it is a different girl for each case actually. One case has someone the girl has been dating for 5 years, others the couple has literally just met that day.

  • JohnNiles

    I thought the subtitle read “Prince of Cheating”. Somewhat less interested now.

  • J_Joestar

    Next version should have a “Yandere” Mode.

    • psycho_bandaid

      It would always result in a BAD END.

      “Are you lying to me? I mean, I love you so much, so I want to believe you. You’d never lie to me right? You love me right!?” *prepares to throw next piece of evidence*

      “Sweetheart, that’s a grenade! What does that have to do with me cheating!?!?”

      “SO YOU ADMIT IT!?” *pulls pin*.

  • psycho_bandaid

    That last guy has a huge forehead!

    Anyway I’d like to give these games a crack if they were ever available in English. Sounds really interesting.

  • Göran Isacson

    I wonder if they’re really all cheaters, like criminals in Phoenix Wright, or if there are some who are innocent and you have to make a call whether they’ve cheated or not… then again, that may be too complex a mechanic to deal with, so all cheaters is probably go.
