That Kiss Turns An Aspiring Idol Into A Primsa Knight

By Spencer . June 27, 2013 . 11:19pm

Exstetra from Unchained Blades developer Furyu has an interesting premise where the amnesiac hero, Ryoma, can awaken people’s powers with a little kiss. In this video, he kisses Shiho, a high school student that dreams of being an idol. After Ryoma kisses her, Shiho becomes a Prisma Knight. Doesn’t look like Shiho is a traditional knight since she uses a gun instead of a sword. Last Shooting!


Exstetra will be released on Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on October 17.


Fun fact: Exstetra isn’t the only kissing RPG. Chulip, a PlayStation 2 game designed by Little King’s Story director Yoshiro Kimura, flirted with this concept over a decade ago.

    While Chulip is indeed quite an old game, I don’t think it was ever popular enough to be influential. If anything, this game seems heavily inspired by Negima.

    • Derek E Nay

      Chulip… I remembering trying that game. It scared the hell out of me for some reason lol

      • Abend

        it is a pretty weird game

  • fyi1191

    Yaoi action?

    • Time Sage

      I hope so. I also hope there are a couple guys instead of just one. Like a physically stronger guy~

  • I’m definetly getting this if they decide to localize it!

  • brian

    • Guilherme Matheus Silva

      Well, there IS a male Prisma Knight in this game, so it could only means…

    • Keima88

      If its done like negima, you can exchange/awaken powers with blood too. If you need to exchange fluids that is…
      And no it doesnt have to be 18+ you just cut your hand and shake it with the other cutted hand xD. But looking at the game I doubt that this method will work haha.

    • AndyLC

      You toss the pigskin around and give a firm handshake, of course

    • TheExile285



  • XypherCode

    I want this…

  • I hope this game sees the light of day outside of Japan. My Vita and 3DS are hungry.

  • Arcana Wiz

    sees tsundere, OK a new must buy for me.

    • Warboss Aohd

      opposite reaction ta Tsunderez.


      What do you have? Tharja’s curse?

  • LightGenx

    Gotta love that drill hair

  • AndyLC

    I can think of an 18+ take on this story nyeheh

    • Ferrick

      well… there is something similar to that concept that’s 18+… just saying

      • DyLaN

        The original F/SN VN Hot scenes?

        • Ferrick

          no… even worst.. hint: its developed by Front wing, about angels and devils

          • vipo


          • Ferrick


  • Aristides

    Give us localization!!!! :P

  • Yan Zhao

    NISA, XSEED or Arksys, please bring this to us!

  • Ferrick

    hmm… Drill hair, uses guns, with that outfit… Mami ?

  • ChiffonCake

    Dat drill hair.

  • Barrylocke89

    As interested as I am in the premise, I hope that this game offers more than that. It would be a shame if after all the characters have been kissed and people have had their fun with that, the game just ends out as a blah conventional jrpg.

  • if this ever comes out in America I’ll definetly get both versions! Just to show my support!

  • akai

    She said : Since I am an idol , love is forbidden.
    Japanese logic :D

    • Arcana Wiz

      But in Japan thats the truth: The idols must have a virginal image and when they marry/have a boyfriends her ‘fans’ start a uproar attacking her because they feel betrayed and generally she has to quit the idol bussiness, so yeah she 100% correct by japanese standards.
      Idol = No romantical realationship.

      • akai

        Yeah , I know ”Japanese idol business” very well and I think it’s so stupid.

        • ShadowDivz

          If im gonna be fantasizing about a girl, she better be pure. Japanese logic. xD

  • vanhyde

    My GF will scream like mad when she know i play this game
    but i dont care, i wanna become harem king 3:D
