The game develper Otomate posted a promotional movie for its Gakuen Hetalia Portable game on its website on December 28. (In the linked page, select the "スペシャル" option from the top menu.) The video was then screened at Tokyo's Comic Market 79 convention from December 29 to 31.
In the game's parallel-world story, Seychelles (the manga character named after an island archipelago nation northeast of Madagascar) transfers into the World W Academy (Sekai W Gakuen) and is immediately volunteered for the committee that puts on the school's annual "Cross-National Party." The game revolves around Seychelles interacting with her classmates to get to know them better.
Her classmates include the characters of the Hetalia franchise such as Italy (Daisuke Namikawa), Germany (Hiroki Yasumoto), Japan (Hiroki Takahashi), America (Katsuyuki Konishi), England (Noriaki Sugiyama), France (Masaya Onosaka), Russia (Yasuhiro Takato) and China (Yuki Kaida).
The game is to be released on Japanese PSP systems on March 24. The limited edition version will include a metal charm set, a clear bookmark set, and other items, while pre-ordered copies will also have an original drama CD. G-mode and Wai-Wai offer a separate Gakuen Hetalia Mobile game community for Japanese mobile phones.
