The show must always go on with Japanese capitalism.

Love Plus

In the wake of veteran Konami staffers Akari Uchida and Mino Taro’s recent resignations, the publisher has released an official statement on its Japanese website clarifying the state of both series. You can catch our full translation of it below.

Thank you for your continued interest in our product line.

Given the resignations of Akari Uchida and Mino Taro as staff members who were formerly in charge of production on the Love Plus and Tokimeki Memorial franchises, we are aware of everyone’s concerns about the future of both franchises.

Love Plus and Tokimeki Memorial are both series of games that are deeply important to us and have earned your love and adoration for many years and as such, production of them will continue unabated and it is our sincere hope that you will likewise maintain your enduring support moving forward.
