Rondo Robe began streaming a promotional video for the My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru) original video anime on Thursday. The Blu-ray disc will be bundled with the limited edition Yahari Game demo Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru (Even Though It's a Game, My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected) PlayStation Vita game on September 19.
Watari is supervising the game's scenario, and original character designer Ponkan8 is also handling the character design for the game. The player will play as Hachiman, and the game will feature a "corruption counter" that will change based on the speech and actions of the player. Hachiman will face both "action" choices (as indicated by rectangular answer boxes) and "thought" choices (as indicated by cloud-shaped answer boxes), and his fate will change depending on the responses.
Takuya Eguchi, Saori Hayami, and Nao Tōyama will reprise their roles from the anime as Hachiman, Yukino, and Yui, respectively for the game.
Watari's romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hachiman Hikigaya with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he see his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters, "They're a bunch of liars." When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, "Not working." A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer "service club," which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukino Yukinoshita.
The limited edition game will retail for 9,975 yen (about US$103).
