Golden Time: Vivid Memories PS Vita Game's Promo, TV Spot Streamed
posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Kadokawa began streaming a promotional video and TV spot for the Golden Time: Vivid Memories PS Vita video game on Friday.
The promo uses clips from the anime adaptation of Yuyuko Takemiya's light novels, and then informs viewers that not only will the fully-voiced game feature all of the main characters from the anime, a side-story character named VJ that does not appear in the anime will make an appearance in the game. Voiced by Rie Kugimiya (Toradora!, The Familiar of Zero), Kōko describes the character as “Nijigen-kun's wife.” The game will also feature approximately twenty different endings, as well as include three minigames.
The school romantic comedy story revolves around Banri Tada (voiced by Makoto Furukawa), a college student who lost all of his memories upon graduating his high school. The story follows Banri, Kōko Kaga (Yui Horie), a girl whose seemingly perfect looks belies her hidden regrets, Kōko's significant other Mitsuo Yanagisawa (Kaito Ishikawa), and other students at Banri's college in Tokyo, including Nana Hayashida (Ai Kayano), Chinami Oka (Ibuki Kido), Nijigen-kun (Takahiro Hikami), and Nana-senpai (Satomi Satou).
Takemiya herself is supervising all aspects of the game's scenario, which is being produced by the same main scenario writer responsible for the 2009 PSP game Toradora Portable! (Takemiya also wrote the original Toradora light novel series.) The game will be released in Japan for the PS Vita on March 27. The regular edition of the game will cost 6,279 yen (about US$63), while the limited first edition will bundle a 1/8 swimsuit figure of the heroine Kōko Kaga, a fan book with exclusive art and material, and other extras for 10,479 yen (US$105).
People who pre-order the game will receive a Golden Time: Vivid Memories Premium CD with and exclusive original drama and a soundtrack of music by Yukari Hashimoto (Golden Time anime, Toradora!).
