    Port over to Oculus Rift please and arigatou.

    • Odin

      It’s been said time and time again why it isn’t exactly possible to port the series to other systems. It having started on the DS kind of helps, but there’s more to it than that. Being that you can transfer save data from the DS games to the 3DS iterations, I highly doubt they would bother retooling the game to fit another console, especially because creating a game with so many random variables isn’t easy in the first place.

      Beyond that, despite what Oreimo told you (lol), the Vita isn’t very accurate when it comes to pinpoint touching, so that’s another thing to think about. Besides that, the Vita already has a few games that focus on the touch aspect already.

      Might as well ask for a Game Boy port…

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Exactly, the game knows when your awake like an evil santa girlfriend

      • Ni ~Algidus~

        i want a gamecom version

      • Richard N

        I was just trying to make a joke about VR dating sims, but I gotcha.

        Alas, these small handheld screens will have to suffice.

        • Odin

          I’m sorry, haha. It’s a little hard to know what you’re thinking if I can’t see your reaction to what I type. No biggie though.

    • J_Joestar

      would be kind of awkward trying to take her everywhere with you like that though.

  • Shippoyasha

    Pretty amazing how far they are pushing and utilizing the system capabilities while most games don’t even bother. Waifus for innovation!

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      They haven’t used it beyond this series though.

  • antochi

    I can’t wait for the day one of these companies decide to put as much time/money/effort into a female-aimed dating sim.
    (Sub-par CG only otome games are only so good. ;_;)

  • Jordan Daku

    -_- I wish they would bring this overseas.

    • Shinobikens

      Don’t worry it never will because the NA gaming market is dominated by shooters and the like

      • 하세요

        I don’t think it has to do anything with FPS games being popular. As a whole, I don’t think the Western culture is comfortable with this kind of…lifestyle, i.e virtual girlfriends.

        • Scipio

          That’s what they said about Senran but I got to play as my bro Kat last year.You never know man.

          • Tinye

            I like your attitude bro :D

        • Shinobikens

          The point that I’m making is it’s a niche market that most publishers aren’t really willing to take the risk of localizing

          • Tinye

            You should reword it and say it’s a “Niche” market because there is a market for it, this thread proves it.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            but for this kind of game, I don’t think so

        • Did you take a look at Skyrim mods ?! A lot of them are about bimbos comapnions ~_~

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it will have no chance, this kind of game is taboo in the west

  • Stacy Connor

    Still amazing that those three are popular enough in the series to keep all these iterations going.

    Shame we’ll never see the games nor those spiffy looking 3DS XL’s anywhere else outside of Japan and such. But, not much you can do about it.

  • SatsukiYumizuka

    Aren’t these all the same video…? These arent character trailers for the each girl

    • Kelohmello

      Well, the videos say Manaka version, Rinko version, and Nene version respectively on them.

  • Firion Hope

    Looks like my kinda game

  • makubexnas

    My girlfriend can’t be this PORTABLE >_>

  • DarkLight

    I want this……….whadda you looking at?!

  • Serge

    I’ll be honest, the first time i played this game i was prepared for an awkward experience, but this game is really funny in the first part (when you learn about the three girls and you max your stats). The only part that make me cringe is when you have to scream “Ai Shitteru” like ten times… That was weird. Aside that the game is pretty funny, and the three girls have an interesting background story.

    PS: Nene is the best ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

    • Aoshi00

      I only finished the DS ver, bought the 3DS one too but didn’t really play it since it felt like the same game w/ better graphics..

      All 3 girls are cute, but Nene for life!! Actually Minaguchi Yuuko has been one of my fav. VAs even before she voiced Nene, so I felt particularly close to her lol.. not sure if I would be interested in the 3rd entry.. can’t experience the tourist events either.

  • Hentailover

    What is this Liam bait?

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      lol Liam isnt ready

  • Foryth

    I would buy it day one, but yeah it’ll most likely never make it. :(

  • mojack411

    Hmmm, not too long ago I would say that there would be no chance in hell that this would be localized. But with the localization of Senran Kagura, Conception II, and that Monster Girl Card game on Vita I’m not so sure anymore. Instead of no chance in hell, I think there’s now a snowball’s chance in hell. I would buy this day one for sure.

    • J_Joestar

      I dunno, there is still a difference between general pervyness vs. all out virtual girlfriend.

      • mojack411

        Which is why it’s simply a snowball’s chance in hell. ie, extremely, extremely unlikely, but still possible.

  • Ethan_Twain

    Wait, what exactly is the progression of games in this franchise? By my counting it went from Love Plus to Love Plus+ now to New Love Plus+.

    I dunno, maybe consider making a new title guys? Or how about a subtitle? Subtitles work well for the rest of the industry.

    Also, have they just stuck to the same cast of characters in each game? Going into the third installment now I feel like either replacing characters or at LEAST expanding the roster is probably in order.

    • s07195

      Love Plus –> Love Plus+ –> New Love Plus –> New Love Plus+
      And yeah, same characters still. The thing is though that save data can be transferred so that basically you’re just continuing the relationship with your virtual girlfriend. At least, this is what I remember. I haven’t played it myself, in fear of getting stuck in it. (And being seen as more of a creep by my younger brother >.>)

      Maybe I’ll get this one? Idk.

      I’m guessing that a new cast would constitute Love Plus 2.

  • k.b.a.

    irl, right?

  • s07195

    I wonder which girl I’d choose if I played the game…

  • Wrengear


  • raeldor

    Only another month, can’t wait! Aside from being fun, these kind of games are great for practicing your Japanese skills. Lots of voice acting, plus the relevant text shown, plus they are great for reading/listening comprehension since if you don’t understand properly they’ll get pissed off at you, lol.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I really hope this one at lest get localized.

  • Dgrinn

    they corrected so much of what went horribly wrong(bugs,angles/proportions and menu graphics) in the first 3DS game but I’m so disappointed that they didn’t correct/enhanced the off-angle lighting/shading of those flat 3D sprites, the 3D has so much more potential than what they’re giving us right now (examples of default lighting/shading and what happens when the girls turn around almost 180°-360°) :
