Take a minute to enjoy Time Hollow screens

We love the concept of Konami's Time Hollow, since it's a scientific fact that time travel is way awesome. Time travel for the purpose of righting personal wrongs is way Quantum Leap-some. Except, in Time Hollow, you are some feathery-haired anime kid instead of Count Bakula.

The screens show a fairly standard-looking adventure game's 'investigation' style gameplay, but with surprisingly high production values. If Konami's willing to put a high budget on a graphical text adventure like this, maybe they'll localize it!

We would like to experience the story for ourselves. We really want to know more about hero Horo Tokio's cat, who was prominently featured in the game's trailer. He has a character portrait! Does that mean that he has dialogue?

Damn, I should just learn Japanese or something, so I can play all these cool games, I'm also anticipating After School Boy, but these games are unlikely to be released here in Europe or the US..

That cat is on the homepage for the site in the characters section. You probably can't play him as an unlockable or anything, but he looks important to the plot.

His name is Foro. There are a few lines about him but I don't have the kanji cred to make them out.

Judging from his picture he has "the burning" of a true anime hero.
I can has collectible toy?
