posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of Happy Elements K.K's Ensemble Girls!! smartphone game began streaming an anime promotional video for the game on Sunday. The video shows the game's various characters and the game's setting of Kimisaki High.
The game is set in the scenic Kimisaki High, a high school surrounded by nature that has just shifted from a girls school to a co-ed school. Players play as the school's only male transfer student as they try to make connections with the girls in the school and live out a youthful school life. The game features over 70 voiced characters from over nine classrooms separated by years.
Happy Elements K.K's released the original Ensemble Girls! game in the social networking service GREE in 2012, and then on iOS and Android devices in 2013. Happy Elements K.K announced last September that the game will be renewed with new graphics and art, and retitled Ensemble Girls!!, but delayed the update to summer 2016.
Novelist Akira ([email protected]) wrote the original scenario for the game.
A spinoff titled Ensemble Stars! launched for Android in April 2015, and for iOS in May 2015. The "idol-training produce game" reverses the premise of Ensemble Girls!!, taking place at a private boys' idol-training school with a history of turning out many great talents in show business. The protagonist is the school's lone female student who transfers to the school because of a special situation, and enters the school's producer department. A stage play adaptation of the game is currently running from June 18-26, and a television anime adaptation has been green-lit.
