Original author Watari pens new summer vacation story for September 19 Vita game

5pb. began streaming a promotional video for the Yahari Game demo Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru (Even Though It's a Game, My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected) PlayStation Vita game on Thursday. Nao Tōyama narrates the video as the character Yui Yuigahama in this game inspired by the My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru.) anime.

Wataru Watari, the author of the original light novel series, is supervising the game's brand-new scenario set in summer vacation. Original character designer Ponkan8 is also handling the character design for the game. The player will play as Hachiman, and the game will feature a "corruption counter" that will change based on the speech and actions of the player. Hachiman will face both "action" choices (as indicated by rectangular answer boxes) and "thought" choices (as indicated by cloud-shaped answer boxes), and his fate will change depending on the responses.

Takuya Eguchi, Saori Hayami, and Tōyama will reprise their roles from the anime as Hachiman, Yukino, and Yui, respectively for the game.

The limited edition game will retail for 9,975 yen (about US$103) on September 19. It will bundle an original video anime.

Watari's romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hachiman Hikigaya with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he see his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters, "They're a bunch of liars." When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, "Not working." A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer "service club," which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukino Yukinoshita.
