Date A Live: Rinne Utopia

Compile Heart’s Date A Live game for PlayStation 3 is a spirit capture adventure game called Date A Live: Rinne Utopia due out this summer in Japan.

One of the game’s new characters is named Sonogami Rinne (voiced by Kana Hanazawa). It’s possible she is the girl from the recently launched teaser site.

Date A Live includes a large number of original date scenes from the original author Tachibana Koshi. Text and event CG are said to be complete reproductions.

The information comes from a magazine leak, though I’m not sure which one. According to the source, there are no screenshots that show what the game’s system looks like. But there is CG image of one character taking off their uniform, though.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

    Kana Hanazawa!!!!!!

    she’s been getting alot of roles lately :)

    can’t say i blame them ^^

    Interesting… I’m curious to know more about this “spirit adventure gameplay”. I’m gonna take a guess and say that this will be an RPG with VN elements (Which I’d like).

    And yes, it’s always great having more Hanazawa Kana~!

    • KurisuMakise

      Shouldn’t it be a Visual Novel with RPG Elements instead~?

        Hmm… Isn’t Sting working with Compile Heart on this?

        Because CH would be able to handle what you’ve described perfectly fine, but with Sting on board… that pretty much changes everything. I don’t think they’d need Sting’s assistance if it were that simple.

          It will mostly be a dating game! like how Date a Live is. :p

          • Eclipse

            Well, ‘dating’ is the core of the series, but I wasn’t expecting a full-on dating game (Due to Sting’s involvement).

            I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Sting brings some unique twist to this, but I’ll be perfectly fine with either option. ^_^

            • Himiko

              Ah you mean with a mix of gameplay? Yeah, likewise. I expect some gameplay on the adventure side along with choice routes similar to what you do in a normal dating sim for all the girls.

              • KurisuMakise

                Sounds like a good way to go about it honestly. Could be something really special, then again Katawa Shoujo had none of that and it was still good.

                • Himiko

                  indeed. ^^ If its like White Album 2, I expect quite a decent romance section. What I’m really happy about is how much recognition Tsunako is getting. Her art is great.

                  Date a Live has quite the interesting concept.
