New LovePlus+ Announced For Nintendo 3DS [Update]

By Spencer . July 2, 2013 . 7:45pm

New LovePlus+ is in development for the Nintendo 3DS. As always, You can date fellow tennis player Manaka Takane, big sister type Nene Anegasaki or sullen Rinko Kobayakawa.




Unfortunately, New LovePlus+ won’t include Akira Yukino, who is from Konami’s social game LovePlus Collection. The theme of the game is going out on a trip, so we guess that means New LovePlus+ will have more places for players to visit.


Update: Further clarification reveals that New LovePlus+ will not include Yukino.

    i wonder what the guy who married a character from the game feels like right now…

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      mai waifu?

      • Kai2591

        more waifu

      “I’m sorry, Nene. But my heart belongs to Akira. I… I’m filing for divorce.”

  • benhofb

    To be honest, I played the original on the DS and Nene was my favorite. It seems kinda lame that they keep recycling the same three girls over and over again.

    • Wait what

      At the same time, though, for people who actually really enjoyed the relationship with their character of choice, this is like being able to do new stuff with that character. Like no matter how much you love Nene, eventually doing the same dates over and over again would get boring. They definitely should add some characters, though.

      • benhofb

        Yeah, I’ve got you. After awhile it seemed like I was just repeating the same events over and over again.

  • Frii

    Love Touch when?

  • puchinri

    Huh. Didn’t expect that, but it’s not surprising. I wonder what other kind of changes/additions there’ll be.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ahhh.T_T It is sad, they are not adding Yukino here……………No Manaka, it is not like i wanted to cheat on you here.O_o

  • I will like to try it in english.

    • VietKnight

      You don’t want to, you will be drawn to it and never escape from the game. I stopped playing it when it took too much of my time.

  • Odin

    I don’t know about anyone else, but having a fourth girl doesn’t feel right. It’s always been a three girl game, so I’m kind of glad that she didn’t make it in this time. And that’s being nice about it, honestly.

    She seemed like an afterthought… hmm.

    • ShadowDivz

      She kinda looks like Nene to me.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Love plus……….if it did get a US/UK release I think alot of single 3DS ownerS would become attached…*Rinko*

    • Ethan_Twain

      I dunno. I think the games are interesting, but most of the really interesting stuff going on at a technology level is region specific. The stuff where the game demands frequent voice input, and then modulates the character’s accent to fit that of the player? Mind blowing. The extent to which the scheduling in these games fits the actual Japanese school year? Fantastic. It’s like Animal Crossing with it’s real time clock, except tied to one specific aspect of the real world.

      But an international release? I don’t think it makes sense to invest in radically redeveloping the games to suit the language and culture of the rest of the world. The genre is too niche elsewhere to put that kind of money into it (the voice stuff in particular would need to be completely rebuilt). Or you could just strip out that stuff and just release the Japanese version, in which case it would be missing most of what makes it unique and cool.

      It’s a bummer, but in this case I think it really might be better to not get the game. Whatever form survived the trip out of Japan wouldn’t really be representative of the product and it’s merits.

      • Logeres

        Point taken, but can we at least get a region-free release? I played the series since the first installment, and it kinda bugs me that I’m unable to catch up for apparently no reason at all, other than to satisfy the voices in Nintendo’s head.

  • Damarius Wingfield

    2D lovers are going go crazy now!

  • Nightmesh

    I wonder if they’ll do a girl side version.

  • If only they were to localize this…
