Nitroplus streamed three promotional videos for its newest adult PC game, Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi. ("The Love Between You, Her, and Her," with "Her" alternately translated as "Girlfriend"), on Friday. The videos introduce the three main characters, who have short character profiles on the game's official website. (Warning: the website is for 18 and older).
Shinichi Susuki is a guy with no unique qualities and whose daily routine frustrates him. He puts his name under a romance novel club at his school, but in reality, he doesn't associate himself with any club. He has a complex about being stuck in the background and ignored by his childhood friend-turned-class idol, Miyuki.
Miyuki Sone, the purple-haired girl, is the academy's idol who is gifted with both beauty and smarts. Although she was Susuki's childhood friend, she hides it at school and does not talk to him. She excels at the academy's drama club, and is great with a baseball bat; a skill she practices for the next drama club performance, which revolves around softball. She loves cats, but unfortunately has allergies to them.
Aoi Mukou, the pink-haird girl, is a denpa who has trouble paying attention in class. (Denpa-kei is a nickname for people who act bizarrely. The slang was coined from people who claimed their actions were caused by electromagnetic waves or denpa they received.) She walks around with a smartphone with no reception, and her pastime is sending messages to "God" from the roof of the school. She also has trouble gauging distance between people.
The two shorter trailers feature Miyuki and Aoi separately.
The plot begins with Shinichi's attempt to teach friendless Aoi how to socialize with people. Shinichi asks Miyuki for help, and the three of them start to spend time together. As Aoi begins to warm up to Shinichi, Miyuki draws closer to him too, rekindling the suppressed feelings they had from childhood, and pushing the three further into a love triangle.
Nitroplus announced development of the game last December, with Santa Tsuji illustrating the "pure love" adventure game and Vio Shimokura (Steins;Gate; Phantom 〜Requiem for the Phantom〜) writing the story.
The "alternative adventure game" will arrive on Windows PCs via USB flash memory in Japan on June 28.
