Date A Live PS3 Game's Promo Video, Pregnancy Endings Teased
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Game developer Compile Heart began streaming the Anime Contents Expo (ACE) promotional video for its Date A Live ~Rinne Utopia~ video game for PlayStation 3. All of the cast from the anime adaptation of Koushi Tachibana's light novel series will be returning for this "spirit-capturing adventure" game. In addition, Kana Hanazawa (Kobato, Sketchbook ~full color's~) will play the new titular character Rinne.
Tachibana's light novel series centers on a boy named Shidō Itsuka who meets a spirit girl who has been rejected by a devastated world. The girl, who Shidō names "Tohka," happens to have wiped out much of humanity 30 years ago, and now she is back. The only way to stop her is to date her.
The "spirit-capturing" game allows the player to interact with all of the heroines in a school setting. According to a teaser by the light novels' publisher Enterbrain, players can also go beyond the “date,” and even see their love interest as a pregnant wife in the future after marriage.
Update: Typo fixed. Thanks, dcloud04.
