In what seems like a very appropriate promotion, Namco Bandai
will offer a specially-labeled wine to tie in with 99 no Namida
, the game featuring short stories designed to elicit tears. Go ahead and start crying now
unless you'll be in Tokyo between June 5 (the game's release date) and June 30, because the 99 no Namida
wine will only be available in the Vinoteca wine bar located in the Tokyo Midtown area.
Banamco also announced that soccer star Naohiro Takahara had contributed a story to the game based on his own experiences. Short story writer Yasushi Akimoto also revealed that he had written one of the game's tales. Is this the first original short fiction anthology video game?
