Idea Factory's Otomate Brand Develops Mr. Osomatsu Video Game
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Idea Factory announced on Monday that its Otomate brand — which develops otome romance simulation games intended for female players — is developing a Mr. Osomatsu video game. The company did not announce the platform(s), release period, or price of the game. Otomate has developed such game series as Hakuōki, Brothers Conflict, Diabolik Lovers, and Norn9.
The Mr. Osomatsu anime series premiered last October, and is airing for two consecutive seasons. The second half of the anime premiered earlier this month. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
Fujio Akatsuka's original Osomatsu-kun manga and "high tension comedy" TV anime centered on the Matsuno household, which has six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets). All of the sextuplets, including the eldest Osomatsu, are all in love with the same girl, Totoko. The original series followed the family when the sons were 10 years old. The new show re-imagines the original manga and TV anime with the sextuplets as adults.
Akatsuka launched the Osomatsu-kun manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in 1962, and the manga ran in the magazine until 1969. The manga then ran in Weekly Shonen King from 1972-1973, and then in Comic BonBon from 1987-1990. The compiled manga volumes have more than 10 million copies in print.
