Love Plus - Import Preorder

«©NCSX» Konami got involved with the love interaction genrw 15 years ago with Tokimeki Memorial: Forever With You and went on to create sequels, side stories, and animated serials based on the Tokimeki brand. There's obviously a demand for love games and Konami capitalizes on the theme once again with Love Plus. Players take on the role of a high school transfer student who finds love with one of three classmates at his new school. The game starts off after the pair have made a love confession already and the couple are in the process of dating, enjoying each other's company, and communicating. With the NDS in hand, players may meet his "girlfriend" at school or send messages by email. The time in the game world moves regardless of whether you're playing or not where day turns to night and the seasons change based on the date. Preorders are welcome to ship on September 3, 2009 at JPY5524 or US$60.90 from NCS.
