Even EA Couldn’t Kill This Japanese Dating Game

A few years back, EA (of Japan!) was slated to publish to publish a Nintendo DS game dubbed Hachi Koi in which you touch various girls. It was the least EA game EA was ever to release. But by 2009, EA got cold feet — or something — and the game was shelved.

Fast forward to October 1. Hachi Koi resurfaced on iOS and Android as a free-to-download dating game that not only looks different from its DS version, it also looks ready to nickel and dime players with in-game items. But, hey, at least it lives. I guess.
