Square Enix is also streaming the game's opening movie.

The main game will offer four characters for 3,300 yen (about US$25). Players can obtain six more characters by download for 1,100 yen (about US$8.50) each.

The Ketsugō Danshi: Elements with Emotions -Commitments to Dawn- manga is serializing semi-monthly on the Manga UP! service. Hinano Mitsuki is drawing the manga.

In the "friendship bonding simulation adventure" game, characters who can control a chemical element are known as “Shikenkan.” The story follows the characters as they attempt to avert the end of the world through chemical bonding during the course of 50 days. The game will begin with 45 story routes with 90 different endings.
