The subplot of dating is more focused towards choosing one of several girls or guys (dependent on the player character's gender) and offering them presents or joining them on events in the game.
While the two genres often share a common visual presentation, dating sims are sometimes considered to be more statistically based than the "choose your own adventure" style of visual novels.The technical definition of a dating simulation game, known as a romantic simulation game in Japan, can involve several technical elements such as a time limit, several statistics such as looks and charm which can be boosted through exercise, or an "attraction meter" which can increase or decrease depending on one's decisions.Sign Up for free (or Log In if you already have an account) to be able to post messages, change how messages are displayed, and view media in posts. Like come on release them in the you can't do physical release then do an eshop digital release then.I just want to play these games and not in Japanese but in english so I can understand the game and so it doesn't have a region lock.can't be more niche than other localized Japanese games like Etrian Odyssey, Shin Megami Tensei, Hatsune Miku games, Senran Kagura, Corpse Party games, etc.Homosexual relationships are also possible, as there are games with no specific gender lines ("all pairings").
There are also GL games, which focus on female/female relationships, and BL Games, which focus on male/male pairings.Some Japanese dating sims may allow the player to have romantic or sexual relationships with characters in their teens.The degree of sexual content varies, but may often include intercourse.Sexually explicit dating sims may fall into the category of H Game or Eroge.Eroge only gets released to PC because large Japanese game companies do not want to release games with sexual content on their game consoles.There are PLENTY of dating sims for the PSP in Japanese. Especially if you consider that the dating sims targeted at girls (called "otome games") are a HUGE market, and new ones get announced for the PSP, practically each month, while the DS and 3DS get very few these know what?
