Favorite Dear Is A Dating Sim RPG Where You Send Fairies Out To Save The World

favoritedear GungHo Online Entertainment released an interesting role playing game that’s part dating sim called Favorite Dear: Jyunpaku no Yogensha. You have save the world from a fallen angel, but the problem is you can’t actually interact with people. Instead you send out heroes called Braves and Fairies (that wear penguin costumes?) to do the heavy lifting.


The searching for heroes to save the world mechanic kind of reminds me of Valkyrie Profile, but Favorite Dear doesn’t look as morose and the game uses a standard RPG combat system. The dating sim part comes from talking with Braves to build trust. You can get Favorite Dear: Jyunpaku no Yogensha as a digital import on the US PlayStation Store, but the game is in Japanese. GungHo Online Entertainment put together a video to get players started.

      I guess you could claim that they’re “gung ho” about it.

  • TheExile285

    I would have bought this if Gungo Ho had actually translated the text.

  • Nice to offer some kind of guide.

    I wonder if Baten Kaitos was inspired by this.

    It’s too bad this didn’t sell over 10k first week. It looks more deserving than that.

    They should hire Navi. She only needed to say “Hey!” and “Listen!” and her hero of choice actually saved an entire land with just “Iaah!”s, “Iaaaarrrgh!”s and “uuuoooaaaaaaaah!!”s. Best comunication in a hero/fairy relationship ever.

    Certainly looks nice, glad the battles aren’t still frame. Sadly, I don’t know a lick of japanese except for a few little things, and I prefer to know what I’m clicking “yes”, “no”, etc to.

    At any rate, I find the sending fairies to find heroes adorable.

    Last time I played a datin’ sim RPG was Thousand Arms. I guess D+VINE LUV is part of the datin’ sim RPG on the PC, too…

    Actually “”Favorite Dear” was a PSX game, I even played the game
    on the PSX when it got released in japan and I have to say the game
    is good and has a really good OST.
