Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 1st Love Plus - Preorder

«©NCSX» Originally released in March 2007, Konami updates Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 1st Love with a full-voice edition where actors provide speech to accompany all of the dialogue in the game. In Konami's twist on the Tokimeki franchise, you play a female high school student who enters a private high school for a three year stint. In that time, she uses charm, guile, and good clothes to catch a man and perhaps find love. Clothing plays an important factor in the game since it helps attract the opposite sex. Sort of like how a bird's bright plumage helps it attract a mate. Preorders are welcome to ship on March 12, 2009 at JPY5250 or US$53.90 from NCS. Konami will give away a bonus Tokimeki Deluxe CD with early preorders of the game in an undetermined ratio.
