To Love-Ru Darkness: True Princess Game Posts Deviluke Promo

posted on by Egan Loo
Franchise's 1st true dating sim previewed before November 5 release

The official website of Furyu's To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness: True Princess PS Vita game began streaming a promotional video titled "Datsu!! Rakuen (Harem)!? Deviluke-hen" (Paradise (Harem) Escape!? Deviluke) on Wednesday. It previews the gameplay and the theme song "Koi-iro♡Shikōkairo" (The Color of Love ♡ Train of Thought) by Luce Twinkle Wink.

The video introduces the characters, and while the game is still set in the familiar Sainan area and Sainan High School, it promises a world that is different from the original manga and anime. In the game's story, Rito loses his memories because of "a certain incident." He doesn't remember anything after meeting LaLa, and the game's story will involve the various heroines expressing their love to Rito. The game will have 11 characters in which players can romance to find their one true princess.

A Haruna commercial debuted on Tuesday:

Haruna: Another To Love Ru: Darkness, featuring stories not seen in the original.
Haruna: The first classic romance simulation game on the PlayStation Vita!
Text: The To Love-Ru series' first classic romance simulation game!
Haruna: Depending on Yūki, there are a lot of girls he can make very happy.
Text: Make a new and special ending just for the game, unlike the Harem Project.
Haruna and Text: To Love Ru: Darkness: True Princess, out on November 5.
Haruna: Has he noticed how I feel?

Furyu is developing the "eagerly anticipated full-fledged dating simulation game." The first such game for the franchise will retail for 6,980 yen (about US$57), and the complete first-pressing limited edition will retail for 8,980 yen (US$73). The download version will retail for 6,480 yen (US$53).

The limited edition will include a package with an exclusive illustration, a product code for a game-original "transparency goggles" that allow players to see through the outer layer of clothing of the characters, a "Momo x Mea" blanket featuring an image of them sleeping side-by-side, and 11 different cover jackets for each of the characters.

Those who pre-order the game will get a product code card for character navigation voices. The game will ship on November 5.

Kentarō Yabuki and Saki Hasemi's To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness manga, a sequel of the first To Love-Ru -Trouble- series, launched in Jump Square in 2010. The series has 14 million copies in print. Sentai Filmworks licensed the 2012 television anime series, and The Anime Network streamed the series in North America.

The second season, To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness 2nd, premiered on July 6, and Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for home video. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.

The franchise already inspired an earlier PS Vita game, the "ultra-pleasant harem action" game To Love-Ru -Trouble- Darkness: Battle Ecstasy. That game shipped in May 2014.
