Konami's LovePlus Production department has posted two more heroines created by Akari Uchida and Mino☆Tarō for its yet-unnamed upcoming spring project. The two new characters are described by the site as a "fushigi-chan" character (a character who has a strange and hard-to-understand personality, pictured far right) and a "meganekko" character (a glasses-wearing character, pictured at right).
The website opened on Wednesday with the first two heroines, a "manager" character (usually referring to the manager of a sports team), and a "little sister" character. The website also shows the silhouettes of two more characters. The website notes that the characters will "debut" in early spring.
Uchida is the producer and scenario writer for the LovePlus franchise, and Mino☆Tarō designed the characters in LovePlus and some of the Tokimeki Memorial games. Konami has not confirmed if these new heroines are new characters for a LovePlus title, nor has Konami confirmed if a new LovePlus title is in production. The LovePlus Production website also links to pages for Tokimeki Restaurant, Tongari Bōshi to Mahō no Machi, and Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side.
The Loveplus franchise launched on the Nintendo DS in 2009, and sold at least 180,000 copies in half a year. The game has since spawned an enhanced LovePlus+ edition, New LovePlus for the Nintendo 3DS, a few mobile and arcade spinoffs, and at least five manga series.
