The full title of Compile Heart and Sting’s collaborative game was announced as Date-A-Live: Rinne Utopia, where you’ll be taking part of a different kind of war… known as dating.
The main character, Shido Itsuka, is a young high school student with a supernatural ability of being able to seal spiritual powers in his body. There are mysterious girls who possess certain powers within their spirits, that cause a phenomena known as ‘spacequake’. These spacequakes have been claiming the lives of millions of people around Eurasia, and it’s up to Shido to stop them. The only way he can seal a seal their powers is by making them fall in love with him.
Date A Live: Rinne Utopia is going to feature all of the characters from Koshi Tachibana and Tsunako’s light novel series, with an additional game exclusive character named Rinne Sonogami.
Rinne is a childhood friend of Shido’s, who appears out of nowhere one day. “Good morning, Shido. I’ve been waiting for you… a long time.” were the first words she spoke upon their reunion. From that point on, she follows our spirit sealing hero on a daily basis. She has an easy going personality and often likes to meddle in Shido’s affairs.
Date A Live: Rinne Utopia is slated to be released sometime in summer of 2013, for PlayStation 3.
