After seeing Namco Bandai’s AKB48 dating games sellout, other publishers are stepping in to the idol dating sim genre. I still can’t believe this is becoming a genre, but here we are with Acrylic Palette: Colorful Cafe Cheers.
You take a part time job working at Cheers, a coffee shop that just happens to have idols working there. That’s basically the set up for players to talk to Rinna, Aoi Kidokoro, Megumi Nishikori, Saori Yoshida, Kobato Sawa, and Haruka Yano. The story progresses as you build a relationship with the girls by chatting with them.
Acrylic Palette: Colorful Cafe Cheers also has a handful of mini-games including a dancing game, dictionary game, sliding photo puzzles, and a hamburger making game. Burgertime eat your heart out? Players can unlock stereoscopic 3D photos and movies by playing mini-games.
Acrylic Palette: Colorful Cafe Cheers is scheduled for release on Nintendo 3DS on December 20.
