Previously, we’ve met Asaka, Yugiri, and Kiyohana from Nippon Ichi Software’s Great Edo Blacksmith. However, there has been a pretty important part of the game that hasn’t been detailed yet – until now.
Thanks to a new preview via 4Gamer, the game’s intimate, touch-based scenarios have been shown off. As you collect more cash via traversing the dungeons in game, you can retire to the brothel and unwind by spending it all on the ladies.
The primary goal of the dying protagonist is to not only make it big, but also to find love in the city. So far three girls are confirmed for the game. To win over the hearts of the girls, you have to engage in the touching mini-game, which is broken up into “Before Play” and “After Play”.
Naturally, you can’t just stumble into the brothel and start going all willy-nilly on the girls as you please—you have to properly court them and deepen your relationship with them. You do this via enticing them with the “Before Play” segment, which consists of generally playful actions.
The final stage is the “After Play” portion, which takes things to an entirely new level of passion—although you have to properly get them excited enough in the Before Play set up. In the final After Play scenario, you can remove the clothes of the ladies, and even do some other things (which aren’t detailed yet).
4Gamer also showed off two more non-romantic characters were shown off for Great Edo Blacksmith:
Yotaro is a strapping young lad who is generally hanging out with the protagonist. He survives by essentially working as a head hunter in the downtown area of the city, near the Edo Castle. Yotaro then proceeds to connect the shop owners with various patrons who are looking for their wares. He’s also the person who sets the protagonist off on his first visit to the girls in the local brothel.
Iori is the madame that runs the brothel where Kiyohana, Asaka, and Yugiri work. She’s consistently busy, as she manages multiple other businesses just like the one seen in Great Edo Blacksmith. She’s kind of heart and doesn’t judge the actions of others. She enjoys tobacco more than she does eating food.
Great Edo BlackSmith is coming to Japan on November 27th, 2014 for the PlayStation Vita.
