D3 make some creative and downright strange games for their Simple Series line up. The Simple DS Series Vol. 43 The Host Shiyouze: DX Night King may be the strangest yet. If you ever visit Shinjuku's bar scene after 12AM on a clear night hosts are everywhere. In this game you play as a male host who has the job of luring women into bars and drinking with them. It looks like D3 made the game like a visual novel, but it starts with the “hunt”. The goal here is to charm a client with flattery to enter the bar. Once inside you get to play dancing and drinking mini-games. Outside of the bar you level up your style by shopping for new clothes.

 

All of the events in The Simple DS Series Vol. 43 The Host Shiyouze: DX Night King happen because the main character is in debt. I’m not sure if D3’s message is a financial warning or if this is supposed to glamorize the host lifestyle. Either way this won’t be coming out in North America or anywhere else.
