Message from Takami Akai
I am deeply grateful to see that “Princess Maker 2”, which came out 30 years ago, is still so beloved by so many fans that we can release a new version. This time I was finally able to redo the graphics, which I had always wanted to do. Please enjoy the newly redrawn vacations and endings.
About Takami Akai

Redrawing the graphics
This title is based on “Princess Maker 2: Refine,” released in 2004.
Especially important graphics were redrawn by Takami Akai in a style similar to the PC-98 version.
The graphics are drawn in high resolution befitting modern game systems, with a commitment to quality in the details.
New Opening Animation
An opening animation produced by Yonago Gainax has been added. The animation by the team led by Takami Akai gives the new “father” player a sense of the future with the “daughter”.
Knowing how your daughter is doing is the first step in raising her
This title is a social simulation, so it is very important to always be aware of your daughter’s status and use this to raise her.
In “Regeneration”, parameters for assessing your daughter’s status are always available, so you can check on her at a glance. Check what you should do for your daughter’s future, and raise her carefully.
