Otona no Renai Shousetsu: Harlequin Selection DS Harlequin Selection: Love Stories for Grown-UpLove is in the air in Japan, thanks to a new romantic DS game. It isn’t a dating simulation though, it’s an e-reader program. Harlequin has put together Otona no Renai Shousetsu: Harlequin Selection, in English that’d be Harlequin Selection: Love Stories for Grown-Ups.

As you can guess from the rather obvious title – even if you don’t speak Japanese that whole “Harlequin Selection” part is a giveaway – it’s a DS cartridge filled with Harlequin books. Digital versions of 33 books to be precise. Harlequin picked 25 of its novels, 3 of it’s previously digital-exclusive novels and 5 new stories and packed them all into the application. The game also helps you search for the precise romance you’d like to read, by organizing books by heroine, mood and setting. It also has Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support but, unlike 100 Classic Books does not use the internet to bring DS owners more free Harlequin novels. It just lets owners participate in ranking polls.

Honestly, I’m a little surprised all this fuss is being made about Otona no Renai Shousetsu: Harlequin Selection now. The game originally debuted February 25, 2010. Perhaps Harlequin is sending out the press releases and such to gauge interest in the game, to see if perhaps a US version would be a viable option. After all, Nintendo just announced 100 Classic Books this past February.

If you’re fluent in Japanese and you want to pick up Otona no Renai Shousetsu: Harlequin Selection, head over to Play-Asia. The site’s selling the game/application for $44.90. You may want to check out the official Japanese site for the game first though – make sure its something you’re really interested in.
