Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend’s light novel has been ongoing for over two years now, and in addition to its upcoming anime adaptation, it’s also getting a game by 5pb., according to this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. [Thanks, Game Jouhou]
Just like in Fumiaki Maruto’s story for Saekano, you’ll play as the otaku protagonist Tomoya Aki and talk up various heroines while you develop a doujin game, and likely with the goal of selling it at the next Comiket.
By recommending all kinds of light novels, anime, and games that fit the heroine’s tastes, you’ll get to spend quality time together as you gather some data for the game you’re working on.
That said, since the girls have their own tastes, you might come across some disagreements and opinion-based clashes between the characters, which will be some of the game’s key moments. When the girls butt heads, it’ll be up to you to decide which one you’d like to support, and your choice will have an effect on the story developments afterwards.
The characters are shown in “Live2D,” so they’ll move around and look lively, as you work together and make an ideal doujin game.
Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend will release in Spring 2015 in Japan for PlayStation Vita.
