posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Anime's voice cast returns in romance/adventure game from Konami shipping this fall in Japan

Kondami began streaming the first promotional video for the Nisekoi: Yomeiri!? PlayStation Vita game inspired by Naoshi Komi's Nisekoi manga on Monday. The promotional video debuted at the Jump Victory Carnival, which was held in Tokyo and Osaka this month.

Text: News flash
Chitoge: Hey, hey, Darling, listen! Nisekoi is turning into a PS Vita game! This is all thanks to my popularity, huh?
Raku: Wait, why!? It's because of the support of the fans!
Chitoge: Well, I guess you could put it that way... All you fans out there, thank you so much! ...Wait, so what kind of game is this?
Raku: You don't even know that? Geez. Well then, I guess, I, the protagonist of the game, will describe the contents.
Chitoge: Huh!? The protagonist is me, right!?
Raku: No, you're not! Everyone always forgets, but the protagonist is always me! M-E! Especially this time, since it's a romance/adventure game in which I spend heart-throbbing moments with the heroines!
Chitoge: Whhh-What did you say!? ROMANCE/ADVENTURE GAME!?
Raku: Yup. The player becomes me, Raku Ichijō, and enjoys high school life. Within that is an adventure game in which the player deepens his/her bonds with the heroines... Apparently.
Chitoge: Apparently!? What's that supposed to mean!? Weren't you supposed to be explaining the game!?
Raku: It can't be helped, OK!? I haven't been filled in on everything, either...
Chitoge: You are always such a useless bean sprout...
Raku: You didn't know anything either, OK!?
Chitoge: I'm an exception, since I'm a heroine. Um... I am a heroine, too, right?
Raku: Well, yeah, I guess.
Chitoge: Which means you and I are going to be doing romantic things...!?
Marika: Absolutely not. My dear Raku! I'm so happy! Finally...! Finally the time when we will be joined has come!
Tsugumi: Marika Tachibana! Get away from Raku Ichijō! It's obvious that the main heroine of a romance/adventure game is my lady!
Marika: Oh? I wonder about that. Isn't that all up to the player? Couldn't it be possible, Tsugumi, that you end up as the heroine?
Tsugumi: Me... a heroine...? I... with Raku Ichijō... With Raku Ichijō...!?
Chitoge: Hey! Tsugumi! Where are you going!?
Marika: And so one bites the dust. Now, now, my dear Raku, leave that gorilla girl alone, and let's start our romance!
Ruri: Wait just a second.
Chitoge: Ru-Ruri!?
Ruri: Ichijō, you're forgetting one really important heroine.
Chitoge: Huh!? You mean... You too, Ruri!?
Ruri: The orthodox heroine, Kosaki Onodera. Here's your real sweetheart.
Kosaki: Wait, Ruri!?
Ruri: Kosaki, say hello to the nice man.
Kosaki: Huh!? Uh, well... Um... Oh! Oh yeah! Title! The game's title! We have to announce it!
Ruri: She ran away.
Kosaki: Let's announce it with a one, two! OK, then, here we go! One, two!
All: Nisekoi: Yomeiri!? (False Love: Marriage!?)
Chitoge: Marriage!? Wait... Whhaaaaaaaat!?
Marika: Finally...!! Finally, this time has come!!
Tsugumi: Marriage...! Marriage...!?
Kosaki: Marriage...? You mean I'm going to!? With Ichijō!?
Ruri: Look forward to it...

Konami is scheduled to release the game in Japan sometime this fall.

The manga revolves around Raku Ichijō (Kōki Uchiyama), a normal high school student who happens to be the heir to a yakuza group. The attractive but violent transfer student Chitoge Kirisaki (Nao Tōyama), the heir to a rival yakuza group, transfers to his class, and the two must pretend to date to keep a war from breaking out between their families.

The manga already inspired the Nisekoi Majikore!? "heroine-training true-love collection game" from Konami on Android and iOS devices. Chitoge is also a support character in Namco Bandai Games' J-Stars Victory Vs. "team battle action" video game.

Viz Media is releasing the original manga digitally and in print. The manga inspired a television anime and original video anime from chief director Akiyuki Shinbo, director Naoyuki Tatsuwa, character designer Nobuhiro Sugiyama, the anime studio SHAFT. Aniplex of America plans to release the television anime series on home video, and Crunchyroll streamed the television anime as it aired in Japan.
