The first scans (via Dengeki) have come out for Nippon Ichi Software’s newly revealed Great Edo Blacksmith, the erotic Playstation Vita game featuring an up and coming blacksmith who must earn a living, and find his true love.
The tiny bit of actual gameplay that we can see reveals what appears to be a 2D variation of Dig-Dig type gameplay, which is clearly how you’ll be spelunking and mining for raw materials to smelt and craft into weapons and armor.
You can hire mercenaries to accompany you during your adventures in search of new riches. Combat was also teased, although it looks like dungeon crawler, first person esque gameplay.
Aside from the job part of the game, you’ll be able to romance the aforementioned love interests in the game. There are three women revealed so far (pictured above), and their names (from our previous report) are:
- Kiyohana (voice by Izumi Chiba) – She’s known for her side ponytail. She’s mostly upbeat, but she is somewhat of a klutz.
- Asaka (voice by Tsuji Shizuka) – A woman completely driven by money, she keeps her private and public life segregated. However, she is friendly with customers of hers.
- Yuugiri (voice by Shizuka Ito) – Yuugiri has a very attractive face and body, but she’s also somewhat clumsy and cynical about life.
You can even see the game’s touch romance mechanic, which can be viewed below:
Great Edo Blacksmith is coming to Japan on November 27th for PlayStation Vita.
Editor’s Note: We’re still waiting on clearer/complete scans to follow up with any new information.
