Tokimeki Memorial? Sure, lots people like it. It’s what you might call a “success.” LovePlus? That falls squarely into the “phenomenon” category, owing to being one of the more advanced dating-sims, and looking to get even more advanced in the years to come.
LovePlus mascots Rinko, Nene and Manaka are now a brand all of their own, and the franchise has taken off in such a big way that Konami’s entire dating-sim department is now named after it, titled “LovePlus Productions.”
LovePlus Productions have an official website that also lists Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side and Tongari Boushi as their products. Oh, that video above? That’s a LovePlus promotion Konami are doing with Halls in Japan.
