This week's issue of Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine gave more details on Kadokawa Games' High School DxD title for Nintendo 3DS on Thursday. Like the second High School DxD anime season that is premiering this month, the "erotic battle adventure game" adapts Ichiei Ishibumi's light novel series of the same name.
The story centers around Issei Hyōdō, a dim-witted, lecherous second-year high school student who is killed by a girl on his first date ever. Issei (Yuuki Kaji) is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Rias (Yōko Hikasa), a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei's campus.
In the game's unique system, the player advances by following his desires. The game's story parts reenact the anime's plot, particularly Issei's daily school life surrounding by girls. The player engages in conversations with the heroines and improves (or ruins) his standing among them by making choices. According to Famitsu, "the key to winning is 'lust'!"
In each chapter of the game, there are also battles with various opponents. The battles have a typical turn-based system in which the player selects commands. The player can use the "lust power" accumulated in the story parts to increase the "Dress Break" damage against opponents in battle.
This game in the adventure/school anime genre will ship on November 28 for 6,300 yen (about US$63). Famitsu posted more images in its coverage of the game.
