Many of you have been asking us which game we will be adding to the campaign next. Well, after much deliberation, the staff at Operation Rainfall have decided on a game that many of you have been asking for; we literally received tens of requests for it. We have decided to add Love Plus to the campaign. We feel Love Plus has the best chance of being localized when compared to other games because of the large potential audience in the West as the game gives the player the chance to know what it feels like to date a high school girl, which is something we’re sure many of you have wanted to do, but have not yet been able to. We feel Love Plus is also the highest quality game when compared to the other games our followers had asked us to add to the campaign.

For those unfamiliar with the game, Love Plus is a dating simulation game on the DS that gives players a chance to virtually date a variety of young girls. You play as a high school student who recently transferred. In some ways, Love Plus is even a longer experience than Xenoblade as you get to work at a part-time job, go on field trips, take sick days, join the tennis club, and there is even a fitness mode! You cannot find that in Fire Emblem!

Beginning in July, we’ll start contacting en masse Konami who are both the developer and producer of the game. We’re going to suggest to Konami that they include male characters for the female players. We’re also going to suggest they work out a deal to include Elena and Aeron from Pandora’s Tower, that way if we don’t ever get the game localized in the Americas, gamers will have an alternative option that is pretty much just as good.

Thank you for being such great supporters of our campaign. Let’s get work hard on getting this gem of a game localized!

    April Fools! Although, wanna bet some news blog will post this? XD

    • lol watch GoNintendo or MyNintendoNews will cover it. >_>

  • Even though today is indeed April Fool’s , I actually have some what of a hard time to say that this is real or not. Though I do hope that it is real.

    This is pretty hilarious. “[T]he game gives the player the chance to know what it feels like to date a high school girl, which is something we’re sure many of you have wanted to do, but have not yet been able to.” So true… *sob*

    I would buy a nintendo handheld again just to play love plus in english

  • Love Plus, eh. Well, it isn’t Fatal Frame, but I can definitely get behind that. Been following up on that one since it came out, as well as the fan translation, and the 3DS version looks neat.

    Now, if only today wasn’t the day of fools…

  • Bruno Junqueira

    Please, 3DS version, not the DS (already translated by fans) one ._.

    Well Japanese dating sims are the unique specialties in gaming, it can be a double edged sword based on the game… lol but its a new game that we need to increase the number of people playing unique Japanese games, no matter where you live! If not, we’re just going to see shooter after shooter.

    However, the dating sim element in Pandora’s Tower is a new feature I haven’t seen ever and that is one game that will draw me into playing the game as well as the action!
