This year's 13th issue of Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine will announce additional cast for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai!! Game Demo Kyun-Moe MAX ga Tomaranai (*´ェ'*) (Kobayashi Is So Cute That It's Painful! Heart-squeezing Moe Max Won't be Stopped Even Though It's A Game (*´ェ'*)) on Friday.

The additional cast includes:

  • Emi Hirayama as Shino Takenaka

  • Rika Tachibana as Shizu-chan
  • Daiki Yamashita as Moyuyu-senpai
  • Yuuto Suzuki as Kōji Ishida
  • Atsushi Imaruoka as Kagetsuna Sanada
  • Kōtarō Nishiyama as Tōdō-kun

The game inspired by Gō Ikeyamada's Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai!! (So Cute It Hurts!!) manga will ship in Japan on August 27. Those who pre-order the game will receive a telephone number, which allows them to converse with Aoi Sanda (played by Daisuke Ono). During the call, Erio Falcone (Tatsuhisa Suzuki) will also make a cameo.

Happinet Games began streaming the game's opening movie on May 20.

The game's main cast includes:

  • Ayahi Takagaki as Megumu Kobayashi and Mitsuru Kobayashi
  • Daisuke Ono as Aoi Sanada
  • Yū Serizawa as Azusa Tokugawa
  • Shouta Aoi as Chiharu Uesugi
  • Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Erio Falcone, a game original character designed by Ikeyamada

The main cast, aside from Suzuki, is returning from the drama CD adaptation. Ono also starred in the original video anime that were bundled with the third and sixth volumes of the manga.

Ikeyamada is supervising the game's story and characters, and the game will feature original scenarios for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day.

The manga's story revolves around twin brother and sister Mitsuru and Megumu Kobayashi who switch places and attend the other sibling's school. Things get strange when Megumu realizes that the school that her popular brother Mitsuru had been going to was in fact a school for delinquents. When attacked by a group of bullies, she meets a mysterious boy with an eye patch.

Ikeyamada began the manga in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi magazine in August 2012. Shogakukan released the 11th compiled volume of the manga on April 24. Ikeyamada revealed in the 10th volume that the manga was entering its final arc with the 11th volume.

Viz Media revealed last October that it had licensed the series for North America under the title So Cute It Hurts!!. The company released the first volume in North America on June 2.
