This year is full of nasty surprises, but today we have a good one thanks to Loca-Love: My Commuting Crush. You might think the title seems familiar to you. To clarify, there’s two reasons for this. One, you might be thinking of the first game, Loca-Love: My Cute Roommate. This incredibly cute unlucky boy meets perfect girl story was one of the most beautiful reading gems in 2018. Now the other reason you may know of this title is because of a controversial Steam ban. Yup, another one of those where Steam doesn’t give specifics on what’s wrong. This doesn’t stop the magical efforts of Frontwing International as today, the long-awaited sequel is out. Loca-Love: My Commuting Crush is now available on JAST and FAKKU for $19.99. Sit back and let your heart be full of that sweet romantic energy that we all crave. Congrats Frontwing!
We have a surprise for you today! 💗🚉

So what’s Loca-Love: My Commuting Crush about anyways?
Aoi Ichitaro’s easy ten-minute commute has been ruined by a domestic disaster that leaves him traveling an hour each way to and from school. It might sound rough, but every cloud has a silver lining – in this case, a girl called Aritagawa Nio.
The most beautiful girl in class, the cool and aloof Nio seems completely unapproachable. But now, traveling on the same train with her every day, Ichitaro might just have the chance to make his relationship with her become something more than a crush.
At first his attempts to talk to her come to nothing, but one day he finds her lying ill on a bench at the station and helps her home. Her attitude toward him starts to gradually change…
“Y-You just happened to sit down next to me. It’s not like I was waiting for you or anything.”
Their relationship starts to pick up speed like a runaway train, and they end up in all manner of scrapes on their way to and from school.
But throughout, there’s one thing Nio won’t allow – She absolutely refuses to be Ichitaro’s girlfriend, no matter how far they end up going!
The pair barrel down the tracks of love, sometimes threatening to go off the rails.
Where exactly will their journey take them?
