This year's 40th issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine revealed on Thursday that the "himōto-raising simulation" game Himōto! Umaru-chan: Himōto Ikusei Keikaku (The Himōto Raising Project) will ship for the PlayStation Vita on December 3. The game will cost 6,480 yen (about US$53) for the regular edition or 9,980 yen (US$82) for the limited edition.
The limited edition will include an exclusive booklet with new art by original manga creator Sankaku Head, a drama CD, a bath poster, a product code for an original idol costume, art for four interchangeable package jackets, and a box to hold everything. Those who pre-order the game will receive a product code for another original costume, "swimsuit Santa."
The original manga centers around Taihei Doma and his little sister Umaru, who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, she has a certain secret. Everyone may think she is the ideal girl, but she is anything but. "Himōto" is a pun on "imōto" (little sister) and "himono," which means "dried fish," but in slang can refer to a woman who is proper in public but lazy at home.
The manga also inspired a television anime that premiered in July.
