Go Go Nippon Begins With You Visiting Internet Friends


MangaGamer sent out the first official batch of screenshots for Go Go Nippon this week, along with details of the game’s set-up. Go Go Nippon has you playing the role of a foreign student who befriends a pair of Japanese siblings over the Internet. Soon, they make arrangements for him to fly to Japan and visit them for a homestay.


Upon arriving, he finds that the two siblings — Makoto and Akira — happen to be a pair of cute twin sisters (naturally). They’ll be showing him around and giving him a tour of the local culture. Don’t let your mind wander too far down the gutter, though; Go Go Nippon doesn’t have any rumpy-pumpy. It’s meant to serve as a tour guide of Tokyo in visual novel format.


You can get closer to one of the two sisters, but this is done by choosing locations pertaining to them. Both sisters will show you different sights and sounds around Tokyo, and depending on which one you’re closer to, the final location you get to visit will vary as well.


Once you’re at a particular locale, a “Show Photo” button on the bottom-right corner of the screen will allow you to go directly to that exact same spot, shot from the same camera angle in Google Maps. More on that feature in this post.


Go Go Nippon is slated for release on September 30th and will cost €9.95 (a little over $14).
