You know, when I posted a video of Love Plus a while back to show off its quirky dating sim charm I thought that would be the last we saw of the game here on Destructoid. After all, it wasn't coming to the West any time soon and it really seemed more like a Japanator thing anyway. Unbeknown to me the game became insanely popular and is even respected by two of my favorite game developers. Needless to say, Love Plus seems to be somewhat of a DS phenomenon, and I am proud to bring it back into the spotlight here at Dtoid.

However, I am not proud of the reason why I am doing it. A man -- a real man -- has legally married one of the characters in the game. Nene Anegasaki, a character from Love Plus, and an unnamed man were married in a church in Guam. The man brought his DS to the church and they are now legally married. The man has invited press to come to his reception on November 22, but unfortunately Mr. Destructoid's invite got lost in the mail.

The one place where a guy in a giant, metal helmet wouldn't be the oddest person around and we don't get invited... jerks. We'll just have to watch via webcam at 12 p.m. on November 22. If you need a crazy fix right this moment, you can head over to Japanator and see a picture of the church the wedding took place in and the wedding invitations.
