Go! Go! Nippon! is designed as a visual novel targeted at an overseas audience. It’s an all-ages game that follows you – in the role of a university student from abroad – during a one week trip and home-stay in Tokyo with a pair of twin sisters, and serves as guide to Japan of sorts.


The two sisters are your guides to the sights and sounds around. You’ll get to see Tokyo’s Akihabara and Shinjuku districts, the Japanese railway network, the local food, and insight into the country’s culture.


While the game won’t include any voiceover work, MangaGamer say they plan to price it competitively with your average guidebook. Early tweets on the subject indicated that this could possibly be between the $10-15 range.
