Yesterday, Voltage Inc. announced a Pre-Registration Campaign for their new upcoming social game, 天下統一★恋の乱~Love Ballad~. Like with 王子様のプロポーズ Love Tiara’s campaign, pre-registering will allow you to get in-game avatars and Diamonds. Pre-registration is currently open for Android users until December 8th. Pre-registration for iOS users will begin on November 28th and end on December 15th.

Games allowing for pre-registration along with a gift are

  • 眠らぬ街のシンデレラby女子ゲー (Eng. title: Seduced in the Sleepless City [social version])
  • 誓いのキスは突然にby女子ゲー (Eng. title: My Forged Wedding: PARTY)
  • ゴシップガール~セレブな彼の誘惑~
  • LOVEandJOB オトナの事情
  • スイートルームで悪戯なキスby女子ゲー (Eng. title: Kissed by the Baddest Bidder [social version])
  • 王子様のプロポーズ Love Tiara (Eng. title: Be My Princess: PARTY)
  • ルームシェア素顔のカレ Love Days
  • 新・生存率0%!地下鉄からの脱出

Each game will be given rewards of

  •  Dianthus princess coodinates
  • Full recovery/stamina items
  • Background for your avatar (castle town scenery)

Love Ballad rewards are a butterfly hair ornament and a peony kimono avatar items. Furthermore, the first 30,000 people to clear the Prologue will receive a limited garden scenery on a snowy night background avatar item. The first 30,000 to register in each game will receive a 1 space Closet item.

I haven’t played the app version of the game, and though the game description is similar to the app version, I’m not sure if the story is different or not. But looking back at most of Voltage’s past social versions, I would expect the story to be different.

Considering that we are now using the PARTY platform for our English social games, I would not be surprised if we’ll be seeing Love Ballad released on the PARTY platform for us if it goes well enough in Japan.

    I love the party app even though i have the app ver.

    Woah I can’t believe voltage end up making a social version of this game o___o, not to mention the original game was cancelled few years ago ^^; and it seems the artwork was very different too…as for the story, it seems they focused on nobunaga and akechi’s rivalry (based on the promotional video ). Still don’t know how to feel about the revamped artwork, nobunaga look way too different and I prefer akechi on the app version lol.

      I was really surprised when I saw that announcement. In a way, I guess I was hoping it would be spared from getting a social version because ugh. Oh yeah, I think the artwork looks like it’s similar to the most recent artwork for BMP. But the character design…. Yeah, I didn’t realize that was Nobunaga and Akechi until I looked closer at the names. I was wondering who the heck that was and where Nobunaga was. I think I only recognized Mitsuhide off the bat. Everything is smoother and nicer yeah, but the design changes definitely surprised me. Even Love Duet didn’t change designs, right? (At least not as much as this, and except for Toma because he got his hair cut) I agree about Akechi. I’m not exactly sure what it is, but I much prefer his design in the original. Maybe it’s the hair? Ugh, now I can’t stop staring at them all.

      So the story is centered around their rivalry… am I wrong to feel like that won’t make for a good story or, at the very least, be annoying?

      After you mention it, it’s really similar to the recent bmp artwork o___o, I agree that the design was way too drastic, I don’t know whether it just me, but all the characters all way too similar to each other ? even akechi, masamune and yukimura are share the same hair color…and nobunaga give a playboy aura compared to the app version (seriously he was more cuter in the app version haha..) well to me, it’s more like his face…and the hair too ^^; but then again I’m biased especially since his story just came out few weeks ago..

      I’m still unsure about the storyline, but the Promotional video is focused on their rivalry…and yeah I’m not really looking forward if the whole story is more love triangle-ish -___-, they didn’t even include both ieyasu and kenshin orz

        If it’s the same illustrator, I’ve noticed significant changes in their art. Like, some parts are improved, others seem like it’s really off. Yeah, the hair color is probably what most made me think they were new characters or something. The hair color difference is more obvious in the original, but you have to look close enough now. LOL I got that feeling from him, too! . . . I think it’s the hair again? Now that you mention it, Akechi’s face shape does make him look completely different, too. He kind of reminds me of Yu. . . .

        Ah, I haven’t seen the video, only the few images. I can understand if the rivalry is like a sub plot or something, but to be the plot? I don’t think that’d be enjoyable. I know D: I saw an image of who I think is Ieyasu, but I can’t tell because if it is him, he also got a hair/design change. I don’t think I’ve seen Kenshin yet?

        Hmm, actually the color is more blended naturally (sorry I don’t have a right word to describe) on the new art, but the characters are way too similar orz, and the anatomy can little bit weird too…Haha, I guess it’s the hair too ^^; He look way too similar to one of sengoku era games from different company =/. It is ? I didn’t even notice that he was more like Yu in the newer version ^^;

        Oh I see, someone on tumblr posted the promotional video like weeks ago. I didn’t like it too if the rivalry / love triangle become the main plot orz, I barely can enjoy any love triangle subplot on any voltage’s route, let alone become a main plot -___-. I guess every characters get revamped drastically….I wish voltage will reveal kenshin and the others too…

        • Shabby

          Smoother? I think? But yeah, it’ll be really confusing unless you’ve looked at them long enough to know the differences. Really? Which game? I’m curious now to see. Oh, like, the original makes Akechi’s face look a bit more rounder, while this one makes it look thinner and more defined? I think that’s it? Probably like other of Voltage’s guys, but Yu was the first one to come to mind.

          Oh, I found it! I guess it was linked through Voltage’s Twitter so I didn’t see it. I see what you mean, though. Love rivalries/triangles are so freakin annoying. Even moreso if the “other guy” has a route. Save it for his own route! I think I can only handle them as subplots if the other guy isn’t actively trying to “steal” the heroine or make her fall in love with him (kind of like in Eduardo’s route in PiL and most of Glenn’s GREE route). Even in Hayato’s route in Celebrity Darling for GREE, the other dude is annoying me because, though not doing anything actively as far as I’ve gotten, he adds drama like not denying the rumor that he is in a relationship with the heroine. Regardless of whose route it is or who the heroine likes, that just doesn’t sit well with me, and it definitely doesn’t help the heroine in any way. (Whoops I went off on a rant) I guess so? I don’t know how Voltage promotes these types of games, but I hope we don’t have to wait until the game is released to find out….

          Have you seen the revamped version of Kirigakure Saizo (Yukimura’s ninja) ? man, the first time I see it, he was more like kaneki ken from tokyo ghoul o____o the hairstyle and hair color are similar haha.., it was a mobage game, unfortunately I forgot the title orz (I used to play this game back like last year ^^;) Hmm, from what I get, he was more matured lol and indeed more refined…

          So it’s originally posted on voltage twitter….yeah, I didn’t really like love triangle too if the other guy already have his own route orz, I heard the love triangle on Akito’s route (MFW) with ren is the worse…they even got into fight or some kind of that and the last thing I want to see is seeing the guys from LI got into fight, I mean when yamato and kunihiko got into fight It’s already bad -_-. I get what you’re saying ^^; I prefer if both of the guy just play fair and let the heroine decide at the end, not the one that get into fight, actively flirting with the heroine, and what not =/

            I haven’t :o I’ve only seen the four in the banner image and Ieyasu (and some other people I have no idea who they are). I SAW HIM! He’s completely different! Voltage what?! Ah, I see. If it’s on Mobage, I don’t think I’d be able to find it anyway lol (the search function never worked for me).

            I checked again on the Japanese blog I saw it on, and apparently the illustrator for the game posted it on their Twitter. I couldn’t find the link on their Twitter, though. Oh gosh, as soon as I found out there was a love triangle with Ren I just… why?! It’s bad enough that Ren already has a route, but that was in Akito’s Sequel! There’s no point in having a love triangle at that point! Unless they want us to think that their relationship wasn’t as strong as we were lead to believe, but why do that? It’s ridiculous! Ugh, you know, I didn’t know about the fight, but what makes that even worse is that Akito’s profile says he’s a pacifist, so he normally avoids fights. I just… ugh. Yes, that! That’s probably why I’m able to handle, even like, the love triangle in Glenn’s GREE route because Yu isn’t trying to steal the heroine, make her change her feelings, or force his feelings on her. He knows full well that she loves Glenn, and he doesn’t try to change that. He’s able to accept that she doesn’t love him and even supports her for it even if it hurts him. Heck, even in one of the events where she’s already engaged to Glenn, Glenn tells Yu that they’ll compete for her fairly. They just go on as they are without using tactics or getting into actual fights for her. Same with Nathan in Eduardo’s route. And they definitely don’t try to stir up drama with the main guy. It’s better off that they just don’t use love triangles. There’s always a higher chance to be a miss than a hit.
