"Spirit-capturing" PS3 game slated for June 27 with bonus Bathtime novel

Game developer Compile Heart began streaming the second promotional video for its Date A Live ~Rinne Utopia~ video game for PlayStation 3. The video features the main theme song "Date in Utopia" by sweet ARMS (a unit formed by voice actresses Iori Nomizu, Misuzu Togashi, Kaori Sadohara, and Misato).

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.

The game will ship on June 27. The limited edition will come with a special book that features Tachibana's Rinne Bathtime novel and previously unreleased illustrations, as well as an original drama CD. People who pre-order the game will also receive a separate drama CD.

The anime premiered this month, and Funimation is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
