Dengeki PlayStation (via Gematsu) spills some beans on Nippon Ichi’s new ecchi title, apparently geared at men in their 20’s.

According to this week’s issue of Dengeki PlayStation, Nippon Ichi Software’s mysterious new Vita game is called Great Edo Blacksmith.

The game has players spend the remaining year of their life as a blacksmith, with the goal of earning both a living at your job as well as the love of a woman. Players will have to mine dungeons for raw materials for use in creating swords and other crafts, and can even find comrades in arms to hire there.

In regards to the love element, there seems to be three women of interest;

  • Kiyoka (voiced by Izumi Chiba) – Her trademark is her side ponytail. She has a generally positive attitude, but is a bit of a ditz.
  • Asaka (voiced by Tsuji Shizuka) – She’s obsessed with profit. Keeps her public and private lives separate, but is friendly with customers.
  • Yuugiri (voiced by Shizuka Ito) – She has an attractive face and figure, but is clumsy and pessimistic about everything.

There’s also some sort of woman-touching element included, though specifics aren’t given on that front.

Great Edo Blacksmith is set to release in Japan on November 27th, priced at 5,980 yen. There’s no word on a Western release as of yet.

      I think there is another more similar title,
      Rune Factor. Harvest Moon with RPG elements.

    “There’s also some sort of woman-touching element included, though specifics aren’t given on that front.”

    I love the deadpan way you report features like that. It’s like a lawyer stating the facts in a sexual harassment case.

      It’s a little hard to sensationalize these woman-touching elements once you’ve seen 15 of them in a row, lol

    Hoping this turns out to be another great title.
