By Spencer . November 26, 2013 . 10:06pm

Konami has a new version of New LovePlus in the works called (you guessed it!) New LovePlus+. This version will have new story scenarios and more places to travel. New LovePlus+ is slated for release in spring 2014 and Konami has a new set of limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL bundles to go with the game.

 

Manaka Deluxe Set

Includes a Manaka themed 3DS XL, New LovePlus+, Manaka’s Secret (a 40 page LovePlus visual & creation book), an illustration sheet with four drawings of Manaka, and a binaural CD with 10 minutes of Manaka talking intimately with you.

Nene Deluxe Set

This includes the same items, but featuring Nene instead of Manaka.

 

3dsxl-06 3dsxl-05

 

Rinko Deluxe Set

Again, the same items, but with Rinko instead of Nene.

Each hardware bundle costs 32,000 yen ($320) and Konami  is taking pre-orders on December 8.

    Forever stuck with Love Plus vanilla…

  • Stranger On The Road

    Huuhh, there were no news regarding this franchise so I thought it kicked the bucket. Good to see it still alive.

    Any way, do you hold the 3DS upright to play this? If not, then the design of the 3DS cover is wrong, it would look funny when you hold the 3DS normally and the girls will start to look like they are falling.

    • Enma_Kozato

      You hold it sideways like you’re reading a book.

    • Namuro

      Yep, that’s pretty much the way you play this game. There are other covers in this style too.

      • Dgrinn

        however this console comes with the previous 3DS game and that version hasn’t had a patch come out since almost a year ago. and since the new game will be really different from this i think they’ll completely discontinue updating the older game with new fun stuff.(they already have discontinued most of it’s compatibility options with the arcade,AR distribution and other stuff which is a red flag of their intentions)

    • SilentMC

      If it’s the same as the New Love Plus, the 3DS adjusts to how you’re holding it. So you can play it both upright and sideways, I’ve noticed the framerate craps itself holding it upright though

    • Dgrinn

      for the first 3DS game called NewLovePlus you can hold the 3DS either way and they had also added the 3D effect use. for this NewLovePlusPlus sequel though they said they’ll return it to book mode only so no more 3D since working on both the views and making everything work with the 3D Effect took most of their work and the fans weren’t satisfied with all the bugs that eventually came up. so they said NLPP will be taking a step back with returning to book view only so they can focus on making other aspects of the game better. so in a way this new game will be more like a sequel to LP+ than a sequel to NLP..

  • Learii

    I bough my 3DS for this game but guess what the game NEVER COME OUT

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Go pester Konami

      • Learii

        I would do that but I only 1 man XD

  • Enzo

    What kind of game is this supposed to be and why does the bundle cost so much?

    • Learii

      this game like you get a virtual girlfriend and you can take pics of her or something like date her something like that

    • Namuro

      It’s a strategy game where you must select one of the 3 chosen girls, and train her to become the best female warrior in Nippon…

      Anyway, all joking aside; it’s a dating simulator (y’know, like Tokimeki, Amagami, etc.) with the 3 lovely girls. The bundles are pricey because of the quality goods like the art book and the CD, and also because they know that people will gobble these bundles up, as it is a VERY popular series with many devoted fans.

      • Detrimont

        i can’t stop laughing at the first part of your comment

      • Enzo

        I see… I only saw these games in anime.

    • greeeed

      worse part(or best part?) it have real time dating -> open game in night = you see her sleeping,

      if you are late at your date(real time) she will get angry

      there is even one guy who marry one character in real life…..

      • Enzo

        So strange.

    • Brandonmkii

      You think that’s expensive? Welcome to the wonderful world of importing.

      • Enzo

        It’s expensive considering it’s an equivalent of $320. The XL + the game should be at most $270, shouldn’t it? Does the extra stuff REALLY cost $50 more?

        • Brandonmkii

          Yeah, actually. CDs and DVDs average on the $50-$70 range, depending on how limited it is. This is actually pretty cheap for an LE that comes with a system. I’ve payed $250ish for some LEs without systems.

          • Josephl64

            this man knows the truth…easily spend $300+ on import orders

          • Enzo

            Just wondering, why mention import prices when this isn’t the import price? This is the domestic price.

          • Josephl64

            you can get it at domestic prices if you know where to look…of course before you add shipping

          • Enzo

            Honestly, that seems too much for something that took a lot less resources to make than the game itself.

          • Brandonmkii

            Well yeah, I’m not gonna say that the prices are justified, but that is the norm over there. Entertainment goods like games and cds, movies, etc, are more expensive than what I’m used to here in NA. I’m guessing or has to do with a higher cost of living over there. Their average $80 game is like our $60 games.

  • Namuro

    Holy moly!

    I… I really want Rinko-chan’s version!

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Rinko is best girl

      • Josephl64

        I have the original Rinko 3DS…perfect time to upgrade

    • shadowind

      I want the Rinko one as well, but the price, Dear God!!!

      • Namuro

        Love…is expensive… (▰˘︹˘▰)

        • shadowind

          Tell me about it, especially with all the special editions that i want to buy such as Lords of Shadow 2, Tales of Symphonia and possibly ones for Toukiden and Lightning Returns if ones for those games are available as they’re all bloody coming out in February; Toukiden and Lightning Returns coming out on the same day in Europe! *sob*

  • FlameEmperor

    Please….. US release with english sub….. please….

    • Renaldi Saputra

      did the DS version got localized? if not, then this kind of game doesn’t suit western gamers and probably won’t be localized

      • FlyingPony

        I don’t think there is any English version available.

        I do look out for info on Love Plus out of curiosity why its so damn popular in Japan, and want to try the game, but unfortunately there isn’t any western release.

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        I doubt that considering the changing trend in localization

        • Renaldi Saputra

          has any dating sims been localized?
          I mean the dating sims as the main genre

          • Kumiko Akimoto

            Hmmm well there’s besides pc dating sims there’s been stuff on the iphone and well aksys otome game localization.

    • Namuro

      Wanna pick up a Japanese chick? Better learn Japanese, man! LOL

    • Dgrinn

      considering how you date high-school aged girls in this game i think it’s also an issue of western morals why it will probably never become localized.

      • FlameEmperor

        Well that’s true e.e

  • tubers

    I hear bells ringing.. actual bells.

  • makubexnas

    Yeaah we going extinct in style bebeh……;D

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    I hope we can get tis one in america

    • Fronkhead

      Ditto, I’d be over the moon if an independent publisher like XSeed or Aksys picked this one up. The audience looks like it’s there. Rinko <3

      • Ethan_Twain

        What makes you think that the audience is present to make this video game successful outside of Japan? I mean… I certainly don’t see evidence of that. What am I missing?

        • FlyingPony

          It have no establish fanbase (yet), but I do heard some people talk about wanting the game. Like Ms. Kumiko, Learri, Fronkhead and me here..

    • Arrngrim

      It makes me very sad to say this…but it will virtually never happen. They’ve already discussed how intricate the game is with Japanese life-style and attempting to “port” that over, wouldn’t be worth it. So they say. Don’t get me wrong, I’d KILL for english translation of this, and I fully intend to import one of these if I’m able. But we’d sooner learn Japanese and try to blunder our way through the JP version than hold our breath for a NA/EU release. :-/ Don’t shoot the messenger! :P

      • Kumiko Akimoto

        Senran kagura came over here i think i have hope now for the future.I know it may be to early but the good localization news has made me happy. So I’ll keep my hopes up.

        The day when I wake up and go”Oh shit I forgot our date last night” because i over slept due to procrastination the night before and dread the thought of turning on the system only to be yelled out with angry japanese and english subtles and having to start over all my hard work of raising her affection high for a successful date is the day I donate more money then i have to charity. Cause that would be a good day.

        • Arrngrim

          True enough, maybe if enough of the games get “exported”, they may consider a NA/EU release. Truly, you never know what can happen. I do hope as well, but I keep it a tiny hope. ;)

  • Arrngrim

    Manaka4Life! Well, here’s hoping play-asia will have preorders for this. Otherwise I don’t know where I could look to preorder one… :-/

    • Namuro

      So you have a 3DS? I thought you despise Nintendo stuff.

      • Serge

        30 years old tsundere…

        • Arrngrim

          34, if you’re gonna attack my age. Get it right.

      • Arrngrim

        Trollololol. Wow, humanity still never ceases to amaze me. The interesting thing is no one bothered to ask in that “other post” you are referring to is how I felt about Sony…or Microsoft. Guess what friend, I hate them all…but I still buy their consoles and games. :D I hate them all for differing reasons, but they are necessary evils to the joy I experience from the GAME DEVELOPERS. Who are the true heroes.

        • Namuro

          No need to get all worked up! I was simply curious, because of what you wrote about the 3DS (which is the first post of yours that I came across, I’ve never seen your other posts, so I wouldn’t know about your thoughts and views on other companies).

          I feel bad for you though, must be painful to constantly hating on all the consoles. Just take it easy, man. Each business will always have some form of products, policies, or ethics that please some, and piss some off at the same time. They simply cannot cater to everyone’s tastes.

          We’re all here to discuss and have fun. You don’t need to be so defensive all of the time. Isn’t it bad enough that you’re unhappy with your gaming life because you hate all the consoles? At least be more friendly online!

    I’ll have to import this, even if I don’t know japanese.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Rinko Deluxe Set <3 and you know what? I think its about time they localize this, or… are they afraid is going to have the same impact as it did in japan…. you know…..what I mean….?

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Either Rinko or Manaka for me =)
