posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Konami revealed on Friday that its LovePlus EVERY smartphone game is slated for this winter for iOS and Android devices. In addition, Konami revealed a visual featuring series heroines Rinko Kobayakawa (left in picture below, voiced by Sakura Tange), Manaka Takane (center, Saori Hayami), and Nene Anegasaki (right, Yuko Minaguchi).
Konami also revealed that a part of the game will be built for virtual-reality devices, and that this part will be available to preview during this year's Tokyo Game Show event on September 21-24.
LovePlus character designer Tarō Minoboshi (√Letter, God Wars Future Past) along with series producer Akari Uchida had both left Konami in March 2015. Konami stated later that month that it would continue to make LovePlus games. Minoboshi designed characters for the franchise under the penname Mino☆Tarō.
The LovePlus franchise launched on the Nintendo DS in 2009. The game inspired an enhanced LovePlus+ edition that launched in Japan in 2010.
The New LovePlus game shipped for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan in 2012, and the New LovePlus+ enhanced version shipped for the same console in 2014. The franchise has also spawned mobile and arcade spinoffs, and several manga series.
