Go Go Nippon 2015 Version Will Have New Sights And Story Events

By Ishaan . December 23, 2014 . 1:28pm

Back in July, Hiroshi Takeuchi, the president of visual novel developer Overdrive, said that he was working on another Go Go Nippon game. This week, Takeuchi shared further details about the project on his blog.

 

The first Go Go Nippon was an attempt by Overdrive to tap into the growing visual novel market in the West. The game put you in the shoes of a boy visiting Japan for the first time, and you were shown around by a pair of twin girls. The new release, Takeuchi says, will have even more Japanese sights to visit.

 

Among these attractions will be the Tokyo SkyTree and the Comic Market. Takeuchi also revealed that the new version will feature a script that’s 1.75 times long compared to the original, and that there will be additional stories involving Makoto and Akira, the two twins.

 

The same production staff will return for the 2015 version of Go Go Nippon. The story will be penned by Yasumoto Toru and character art provided by Fujimaru. The game will be available both digitally and in the form of a hardcopy, although details on this front have not been announced.

 

Go Go Nippon is being developed using Unity, and following its PC release will be ported to iOS and Android devices. Overdrive hope to make the game available on PC by next year’s Anime Expo convention.

    is this a sequel or remake?

    • ReMeDyIII

      Confused by this too. Seems odd to release a remake, considering they’re using the same exact characters.

      If it’s a remake, I would have went with totally new characters.

      • Christopher Nunes

        I think it’s more of an “extended” version of the game. Kinda like how Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 did with the Full Burst add-on that added another Story Scenario of Sasuke and Itachi fighting Kabuto.

        Basically it’s adding more to the original game.

        • Greg

          That’s what I was saying.

  • Yan Zhao

    But can you turn the sisters….into a real woman in this version~!

    • Quizler

      Probably not, since they make it with the western audience in mind. I don’t mind, but I hope this isn’t the norm from now on!

      • Christopher Nunes

        Maybe they can have two versions? One without “implied” scenes and one with?

  • I’m gald that I waited to buy it.

  • Michael Connell

    I’m curious if voice acting will be included since I remember that was a considered addition if the game sold well

    • TheManWithPants

  • Tenabrus

    I was going to buy this game on steam.

    guess I’ll wait now.

    • sdmblack

      I think this is a sequel.

      At least I hope it is.

      • Greg

        I thought it was an expansion pack (or paid DLC) on the original, isn’t it?
