To Love-Ru-" by franchise mainstay Ray.
The "ultra-pleasant harem action" game has an action part in which the player helps the heroines defeat monsters in dungeons.

The 3D game will arrive on May 22, 2014. The regular edition will cost 6,980 yen (about US$70), while the limited edition will cost 8,980 yen (US$90) and the download will cost 6,463 yen (US$65). The limited edition will include exclusive illustrated packaging, Golden Darkness sleeping sheets, Momo cord reel, and a product code to unlock an original "sexy apron" costume. People who pre-order will receive a product code to download an original maid outfit costume.
The manga, a sequel of the first To Love-Ru -Trouble- series, launched in Jump Square in 2010. The ninth compiled book volume of Saki Hasemi and Kentaro Yabuki's manga bundled an anime DVD on December 4. Sentai Filmworks licensed last year's television anime adaptation of the manga, and The Anime Network streamed the series in North America.
