posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Idea Factory's Otomate brand — which develops otome romance simulation games intended for female players — announced during its Otomate Party event last weekend that the title of its planned game based on the Mr. Osomatsu (Osomatsu-san) anime is titled Osomatsu-san The Game Hachamecha Shūshoku Advice: Dead or Work (Mr. Osomatsu The Game Nonsense Employment Advice: Dead or Work). The game is slated for release on the PlayStation Vita in 2017.
Idea Factory is streaming an announcement video for the game.
Idea Factory describes the game as a "dynamic unemployed adventure." The game will have a standard edition for 6,300 yen (about US$62), a limited edition for 8,300 yen (about US$81), a special edition that will come in six types for 12,300 yen (about US$121), and a digital download edition for 5,800 yen (about US$57).
The Mr. Osomatsu anime series premiered last October, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired 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.
