Ecchi the Kisser
Nippon Ichi Software’s new PS Vita title is Great Edo Blacksmith. It’s coming to Japan on November 27. Gematsu reports, “players spend the remaining one year of their life as a blacksmith, with the goal of earning both a living and the love of a girlfriend.” The dungeon crawling elements seem to center around hiring help to go mine dungeons for raw materials used to craft things.
There is also some sort of erotic “touching” gameplay. Nippon Ichi is aiming to make this a males-aged-20-targeted franchise akin to Criminal Girls, recently in the news for the mild censorship to its sexual punishment minigame for the North American release.

Asaka (voiced by Shizuka Tsuji) — She’s obsessed with profit. Keeps her public and private lives separate, but is friendly with customers.
Yugiri (voiced by Shizuka Ito) — She has an attractive face and figure, but is clumsy and pessimistic about everything.
