Kadokawa Games updated its promotional video for the High School DxD game for Nintendo 3DS to confirm the new December 19 release date. The "erotic battle adventure game" adapts Ichiei Ishibumi's light novel series of the same name.
The standard edition of this adventure/school anime game will retail for 6,300 yen (about US$63). Customers who order the special edition for 9,240 yen (about US$93) will receive a pair of earbuds shaped like Rias' breasts in a bra, a cord manager strap custom-made for the earbuds with Rias art, two decorative rubber bands with the anime logo and Rias' bra, a "transforming" cloth that zips into a compact triangle, and a 3D card with an exclusive illustration depicting a "naughty" scene.
The story of the anime and the game 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.
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.
