Hondas, Mazdas, and Toyotas Turn Moe For Bishoujo Game

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Automobile brokerage portal Autoc one K.K. is accepting preregistration for yet another "thing-turned-cute-girl" mobile game focusing on real-world vehicles. The game, Syanago Collection, which will be available for iOS and Android devices, takes cars from Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, and Mitsubishi. The manufacturers approved the usage, so by all means, the game is legitimate.

The revealed characters are:

Fit (Honda Fit)

Freed (Honda Freed)

Passo (Toyota Passo)

Leaf (Nissan Leaf)

Axela (Mazda Axela/Mazda3 in North America)

Outlander Phev (Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV)

The game has more designs shown on its website and in the banner (seen above), but their vehicle counterparts are still a mystery.

The game does not seem to be associated with DMM, the makers of Kantai Collection (Ship girls!), Oshiro Collection (Castle girls!), and Ore Tower ~Over Legend Endless Tower~ (Construction girls!).

The game will feature real, popular driving courses found throughout Japan. Players try to build the ultimate racing team and strengthen the cars. The game is laid out like sugoroku, or a Japanese board game similar to backgammon.

The story takes place in the year 20XX, when it's an everyday sight to see girls called "Syanago" running around all parts of the country. It's rumored that if you win the"Nihon Jūdan Rally," all your dreams will come true." Many Syanago owners aim to win, and so spend their days doing nothing but racing to build the strongest team. During all this, a certain Syanago appears before you with a wish she wants granted.

The game's name itself is a pun. The kanji for "syan" can also be read as "kuruma" (car) while "nago" comes from "onago" an alternate reading of the kanji for "joshi" or "women."
