Kisses Abound In Exstetra’s Latest Trailer

By Sunjun . August 9, 2013 . 1:30pm



Unchained Blades developer FuRyu has revealed their second trailer for Exstetra, an RPG in which you play as a boy named Ryoma who can give people special powers by kissing them. After Tokyo merges with another world called Fantasia, you must awaken these Prisma Knights to save both worlds.


This trailer shows off some of the girls (and boys) you will get to kiss, including an aspiring idol, a guy who likes video games, and one girl who might actally have a crush on you. There are also two previously unrevealed characters: Akari, a magical girl and Kotone, a girl who fights with daggers.


Accompanying the video is the theme song, “with you,” performed by the duo ClariS. The song is available now in their album Second Story.


Exstetra is scheduled to be released on November 7 for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

    Ugh kissing the guys. Not even yuri to have balance at least and…not kissing Selene? really? I don’t want to believe this madness.

    • DyLaN

      So when girls kiss its a-ok but guys are not? K

    • Lester Paredes

      Double standard! If it’s good for the goose, it’s good for the gander!

    • Firekitty

      While I’d love for this to have yuri options so everyone can have fun, the way you phrased that was gross.

  • Sardorim

    They’re really pushing the archer girl as the main love interest/heroine, huh?

    Sorry for those that wanted to see him kissing guys. That wasn’t in the trailer… Gives me the feeling that they may be hiding it.

  • Nanaki

    This is the first time I heard of ClariS.
    I enjoyed it.

  • Brimfyre

    This is why Netorare was invented.

    • Brimfyre

      Why the down votes, friends? :D

  • Hours

    I like the designs for the game, and it seems fun, but I won’t be sold until I see how they treat the same sex kissing. If it’s done respectfully and not treated as some sort of joke, then I’m totally in, but if we’re gonna be subjected to some homophobic nonsense, then it’s a definite no.

    • biskmater

      You do understand this is Japan, right? One of the countries that manages to outdo us in that regard, regardless of how it gets treated expect a least several homophobic jokes.

  • Warboss Aohd

    not gonna lie, if kissing a dude gave me powers, i would do it.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    So new type of harem that both the guys and girls want to make out with MC and what is this?! The MC isn’t a weakling?! Oh man this smells like something new and good

    • wererat42

      You honestly don’t see a lot of the old ‘plain, spineless indecisive harem protagonists’ these days. Lots of them are good looking and reliable. Take Kirito for example.

      Doesn’t make harem any less horrible as a genre, but there you go.

  • I’m really hoping this games gets an english release, looks awesome! Mizuki, Shiho and Akari will definetly be in my team! >.<!

  • I’ll kiss whoever to get this localized.

  • Kevadu

    I wish they would talk more about the actual gameplay. The few clips we’ve seen seem pretty generic.

  • Göran Isacson

    Neat song, but I notice they seem to shy away from showing the lead kissing the other guys… perhaps they’ll wuss out and come up with an alternate solution for the boys? Kinda weak if so, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    • Sardorim

      Well, there’s still sadly a stigma against it around the world. A shame that progress and understanding is taking so long to take effect to end such bigotry and hate.

      • Steven Higgins

        But it is Japanese and there are a ton of Yaoi fangirls there.

  • biskmater

    What I am wondering, is just how much power Ryoma has? Is he okay? Above average? I don’t expect him to be stronger than those he kisses, but still… Also, do the characters have to kiss every time they want to use the power, or is it a one-time deal?

    • DyLaN

      I believe an article of it said tht Ryoma can absorb energies from monsters.

    • Steven Higgins

      It looks to me like after the initial kiss they keep the powers but a additional kiss is required whenever they want to unleash a Limit Break/EX or similar ultimate attack.

  • $36598391

    This sounds both interesting and strange at the same time

    It’s cool that it’s on both 3DS and VITA

  • Curan_Altea

    This actually looks really interesting…. Will be following it.
    And soundtrack by Yoko Shimomura?
    Or did I hear that wrong……

  • Lester Paredes

    They should make you kiss as many guys as you get to kiss girls in this game. Then, you can choose which person to have a relationship with! That’d be awesome! In the most likely of outcomes, kissing the guy/guys will be only for comedic effect.

  • Lemon

    Looking forward to this and Conception 2. Really love the character designs and music for these 2 games. In fact, I was kinda surprised myself how much I came to like Conception 1’s music.

  • Antixono

    *sigh* I hope you don’t have to intentionally kiss guys in this game.If you do I hope all of them are by accident in the story.

    • Steven Higgins

      Or you could just, you know, not play it if it’s that much of a problem for you.

  • AxionAzure

    Interesting, the soundtrack and gameplay look pretty good, all that and when I heard this song it reminded me of magical girls right away. Well, my Japanese knowledge is still below par so I’ll have to hope for a localization.

  • ShadowDivz

    “who might actually have a crush on you.”

    …Really? -_-
