Nippon Ichi Software Making PS3 Visual Novel About “Yandere Hell”


Nippon Ichi are working on a new PlayStation 3 game titled I Thought It’d be Harem Paradise, but it Turned Out Yandere Hell.


Dengeki PlayStation (via: Re:Zaregoto) says this is visual novel. It’s written by Katsunori Kobayashi along with Kikakuya, who worked on games such as Baldr Force EXE and Dual Savior Destiny.


Tatsumi Takuma is directing the title, and its theme is reportedly “mascot characters and female high school students”. To put this into perspective, the Japanese term used is “yurui characters,” which is used to describe characters like Hikonyan and Kumamon, who serve as mascots for a wide range of products and services.


The game is slated for release on April 24th in Japan.
