Namco Bandai is going all out for AKB 1/153: Love Election. The upcoming AKB dating game includes idols from sister groups SKE48, NMB48, and HKT48 for a total of 153 women to (virtually!) meet. AKB 1/153: Love Election has photos and voice samples from all of the singers.
You’ll see the girls in all kinds of fantasy situations – Christmas, Valentine’s Day, in a wedding dresses by a heliport (!?), and red carpet events. Who knows where the girl of your dreams will confess their love and in this game all of the girls are heads over heels for you. As the player, it’s up to you to pick the girl of your dreams.
