Japanese developer Prototype has revealed that they are working on a PlayStation Vita port of the PC visual novel Idol Mahō Shōjo Chiruchiru ☆ Michiru.
The port – which will go by the name of Grisaia no Kajitsu Spinout!? Idol Mahō Shōjo Chiruchiru ☆ Michiru – is a spinoff of The Fruit of Grisaia franchise that will release in Japan on June 25th for 4,300 yen.
The original PC version was released in two parts in last year but the PlayStation Vita version will bundle the two together in one package. This spinoff will feature a humorous story where all the heroines from the Grisaia games will play completely different characters. In this visual novel there are no choices for the player to make, but full voice acting and background music will feature.
The game will star Michiru Matsushima (who is voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi), who is an unpopular idol that doesn’t sell well. Michiru dreams of being the most popular idol – appealing to both men and women – whilst wearing the cutest clothes and singing beautiful songs. In reality, Michiru performs in a dingy basement jazz bar each weekend – performing to few fans and struggling to sell merchandise.
When Michiru is walking home alone one night she sees a shooting star and wishes to one day become a top idol. However, all is not what it seems as the star that Michiru wishes upon is in fact a cat that goes by the name of Nyanmel (voiced by Kaori Nazuka) who comes from a magical world. This cat tells Michiru that she must become a magical girl in order to save her world!
It has been confirmed that the game will offer full support for the PlayStation TV, colour customisation options and touchscreen functionality.
This will be the second game in the series to come to the PS Vita after Prototype previously ported The Fruit of Grisaia to the handheld back in 2013.
