Love Plus @ AOU 2011: Lines, pictures, life-sized girls


Yes, there were other games at Japan's 2011 AOU Amusement Expo yesterday, but it seems like the only ones attendees wanted to play were Love Plus branded. Konami showed off their two newest Love Plus arcade titles there. Fans showed up in droves, DS in hand, to see their virtual girlfriend up close and maybe take her picture. Or get their picture taken with her. 

Love Plus Arcade Colorful Clip isn't a game as much as it is a kiosk for a virtual date. The whole point is to get your virtual girl to do cute things and then take pictures of her being cute. Your shot is actually printed out at the end of the "date" for you to keep. There was an overwhelming number of example photographs at Konami's booth, and you'll see some of them in our gallery below. They even displayed upcoming photo albums that you can keep your Colorful Clip photos in. I got a kick out of watching attendees getting very excited over some of the snapshots on display.

If Colorful Clip isn't much of a game, then Love Plus Medal Happy Daily Life is a game at all. Still, that didn't stop droves of fans from lining up for the experience, as you'll see in the video above. This medal redemption machine let fans see what their virtual girlfriend looks like outside of the DS screen. The sync'd up game girl turns (kind of) real through something that looks like a hologram. A big attraction at the booth was a life-sized version of the girlfriends. Many gamers stopped to pose next to their girl, as you'll see. Some that posed looked a bit embarrassed, but the experience was definitely the hit of the show.
