The latest edition of The Next Week is out today, and we’ve got some exciting news for lovers of all things Japanese: A new romantic game that brings fans together with a virtual sushi restaurant has just launched on the app.
The app’s name, Elote, is a play on the word “elote” meaning “love” in Spanish, and you can read more about the game here.
The game features a virtual chef who can cook your favorite sushi items, as well as your other love interests, who can then help you make them.
It’s an amazing idea for two lovers to play together, even if you’re not married.
“We’re going to create an app for people who love each other, but are not in a romantic relationship,” says the Elote creators.
“The two lovers can sit at the table and share the love, but also the joy and the happiness.”
Elote’s creators have been making their app for over a year now, and the team is ready to launch it to the world.
“It’s just one of those things that’s been waiting for us for so long,” says Shiro Nakajima, a 23-year-old graduate student at Osaka University.
“I’ve been doing this for almost five years, and I never thought that I would have a chance to make a game.”
Elotes makers plan to use the funds raised on Kickstarter to make the app available to the public and to develop the game’s online component.
Elote users can earn credits by completing tasks on the game, and they can then use those credits to buy additional content.
The developers also plan to add new content every month, but they’re currently aiming for an app that is both fun and affordable.
Elotes users will be able to make their own sushi dishes and customize them for their liking, while the game will let users add their own character to their table.
Elotes players will also be able share pictures of their favorite sushi, as long as it is in Japanese, to get a sense of who they are.
The team is also considering adding a “lovery” system that will let players create a special avatar and give their love a personalized gift.
The Elote lovers app will launch in Japan on December 10th.
