Why get a boring old credit card, when you can get a really interesting one that probably says more about you than anyone really wants to know?
Love Plus, Konami's love simulator, is the latest otaku favourite to get its own credit card, which you can flash for big purchases - you know, expensive hug pillow covers and pricey plastic figurines.
This is just one of many otaku-themed credit cards for Japan. Previously, Gundam, THE [email protected] and anime Lucky Star were immortalised in plastic. Why?
Because Visa is everywhere you want to be, even if that's hanging out with the girls from Love Plus.
The game was originally released on the Nintendo DS, but since has spun off manga and an arcade title. Konami created an entire division devoted to this series, and it is currently working on a 3DS title.
