Ro-Kyu-Bu! light novel author Sagu Aoyama confirmed on Sunday that the new Ro-Kyu-Bu! game will bundle an original anime DVD. The announcement was first made in Sunday's Aki no Saiten 2012 event from ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Bunko imprint.
ASCII Media Works revealed the second Ro-Kyu-Bu! PSP game through shopping bags that were distributed at the 82nd Comic Market this past summer. The "loli sports stealth adventure game" Ro-Kyu-Bu! Himitsu no Otoshimono is slated for next spring.
Aoyama's comedy novel series follows a high school student who finds himself coaching a basketball team of elementary school girls. It inspired a television anime adaptation in 2011, as well as a PSP role-playing game/adventure game where players could choose whether to focus on a "loli gauge" or a "sports gauge" when training their team.
While Sentai Filmworks had announced last year that it had acquired the license to release the anime series in North America, it relinquished the rights to do so this past June. The series streamed on The Anime Network as it aired in Japan.
Update: More background information added.
