Your Love Plus Virtual Girlfriend Experience Trailer

Do know: the trailer is heavy on the Japanese language (it is a Japanese game). Konami's upcoming DS dating sim Love Plus appears to be the most advanced dating sim to hit the platform.

The first part of the game is standard fare: Players court three girls, trying to get them to fall in love. That's where most dating sims end — Love Plus is just getting started. The second half is open ended. You've already got the girl, now what do you want to do? Want to touch her on her forehead, cheeks, arms, etc. via the touch pad? You can email her, call her via the DS mic and study together.

As shown in the trailer, players can set how they want their girlfriend to address them. What's more, over time, she modifies to match the players' likes and dislikes. The way she speaks will even change slowly over the course of the game.

Love Plus, which is scheduled for release later this year, runs on a real-time clock, which even corresponds to the different seasons. The DS title is packed with over 5,000 scripts, 150 CG events and 25,000 voice expressions — something that might make a localised version not only tricky but time consuming and costly.

Love Plus will be out in Japan on September 3.

    Wow this is something new for the Dating genre, everything else ended with you getting the girl, this goes beyond.
    Not a big fan of games that utilise real time clocks, I mean your busy at work but get punished for not playing it on time.

    Now that's an interesting twist. I'm keen on trying it just to see what kind of stuff they put in. Too bad I can't read Japanese..

    Interesting... the clock in the back (1:35-ish) says "real time clock"
    Also, 2:20 - She says good morning, and the video purposefully show the time (9 AM), etc.

    Does that mean this game pretty much runs all year (as in it follows real world time)? Interesting..

    now for modders to slowly edit the game into rapelay....

    times like this makes me wish i didnt zone out during japanese102.
