The game is slated for spring 2019 in Japan, and it will include elements of the band training and romance adventure game genres. While the app will center around the Sensual Phrase storyline, it will also incorporate elements from Shinjo's other manga such as Love Celeb and Haou Airen.
Shinjo is also preparing an entirely new Sensual Phrase work separate from the game app.
Shinjo's original Sensual Phrase manga ran in Shogakukan's Sho-Comi (Shōjo Comic) magazine from 1997 to 2000, and Viz Media published it in North America. A television anime adaptation ran from 1999 to 2000, and the Lucifer visual-kei band was formed in real life specifically to perform theme songs for the anime. The band broke up in 2003 but reunited several times after the disbanding.
The manga's romance story centers on female high school student and aspiring lyricist Aine Yukimura and Lucifer rock band vocalist Sakuya Ōkouchi. One day, Sakuya runs into Aine with his car. Sakuya gives her a pass to a performance that night, and she hears him perform her lyrics that she left behind after the accident. The two fall for each other but encounter many obstacles as their relationship develops.
