nadeshiko collection 640x420 LovePlus Productions new project revealed to be Fu Un! Nadeshiko Collection    a social game

This GREE social game from Love Plus producer Akari Uchida and artist Mino☆Taro, in which players collect, er, Japanese beauties whose character designs are based on the 47 different prefectures or cities in Japan, was officially launched today. On Valentine’s Day.

Konami sure knows their target market well.

And that about sums up fun — er, I mean, Fu-Un! Nadeshiko Collection.

Watch these trailers, then tell me in the comments what you think.

It’s a GREE social game playable on smartphones and feature phones anyway, so unless you already have a Japanese GREE account (these things are region-locked), you won’t be able to access it.

In Fu-Un! Nadeshiko Collection, a group of mysterious female antagonists have turned things in Japan topsy turvy – Osaka Castle suddenly made to appear in Tokyo, Mt. Fuji transmogrified into a giant pudding. It’s an unprecedented national crisis.

But not to worry! The prime minister has a plan!

Call forth the Nadeshiko! Japanese beauties who love their homeland more than anyone, and are thus well-equipped to… combat weirdness!

The art is appealing, the game’s ridiculous plot is pretty intriguing, the voice work stellar — I’m in love with it.

But damnit, I can’t play it!

Seriously, LovePlus Production: Go back to making New New Love Plus, you guys.
