A pair of dating games hit Japan on Valentine's Day

If you're anything like this blogger, you'll be spending Valentine's Day alone and bitter again this year. If you live in Japan (or enjoy importing), though, rest assured that the Land of the Rising Sun knows how to take care of its single girl gamers. Not one, but two dating games will be released in the country on Thursday, hoping to let young girls in the lonely hearts club live vicariously through their handhelds.

The more popular of the two, Tokimeki Memorial: Girl's Side 2nd Season is not only a sequel to a successful game, but also a remake of a PS2 title (with additional content involved to sweeten the deal). Making full use of the touch screen, the game lets you fondle your man on the way home from dates, which in turn increases his affection for you. The "touching" parts probably aren't as scandalous as they sound, but when it comes to Japanese dating games, you just never know.

The second game is a bit more disheartening than the former. In Otometeki Koi Kakumei * Love Revo!!, you take control of a girl who's packed on a few pounds since her youth. Now that she's fat, she no longer has any gentlemen callers. In fact, all the hot guys in town are downright mean to her. Of course, it's up to you to get her back in shape so that she can get a boyfriend. The idea sounds a bit like the story in Yume Penguin Monogatari to us, only without the charm of having penguins involved.

[Thanks, Mariye!]
