Jewelic Nightmare, a brand new PSP game slated for a 2013 release, was announced by Otomate in the May 2013 issue of Dengeki Girl's Style. The official website was also opened today.
Even though they look the same, their personalities are complete opposites. This is a story for you to fall in love with men who have that gap, and all the capturable men are the personification of gems!? While it might seem familiar, you will be able to enjoy the elements of surprise—with "gem language" as the motif. The story takes place in two worlds. The men you see in your "dream" are all wild or dangerous, while the ones in "reality" are gentle and refreshing. Which side will you fall in love with?
The heroine of the story is Tsukishiro Michiru. (her name is changeable) She is described as a normal 16-year-old girl who likes sweet and beautiful things. Every night, she is forced to visit the world of dreams. In her dream, a man who claims to be the "lord" orders her to "choose one gem that suits herself before the next full moon". Michiru is of a gentle, calm and obedient/mature nature, but nevertheless has an inner strength. Because she has not personally experienced love yet, Michiru possesses a faint longing for romance.
The following are the guys from the "sweet real" side, or from Michiru's world when she's awake.
Sumeragi Seiichirou: the prince with the perfect smile. A 24-year-old man who is working as a pastry chef at cake cafe Felice. Like a prince from a fairy tale, Seiichirou is dazzling and has a sweet, gentle atmosphere. He is indiscriminately kind towards everyone, but seems to avoid becoming intimate with anyone in particular.
"If you continue to eat so happily, I'll want to keep watching you......always."
Togari Kou: the refreshing, "herbivorous" high school boy. A 16-year-old boy with a sweet tooth, Kou works part-time at Felice with the heroine. He is bright and refreshing, but can also be hot-blooded sometimes. Kou cares a lot about his friends and so is loved by everyone around him. Because he attends an all-boys' school, he has no immunity towards girls and seems to be a late-bloomer when it comes to love.
"I like sweets, too. Next time, together we should......err, wai—too close!"
Sumihara Aoshi: the young, honest, and cool middle schooler. The 14-year-old nephew of the owner of Felice. Aoshi is demure and does things at his own pace, but somehow has a philosophical air to him. He likes to gaze at beautiful things and take photographs and can frequently be found in the park absently looking up at the sky.
"I think that you are......pretty. That's why......I want you to stay like that forever."
Sensui Takuma: the soothing, nonchalant student council president of the high school that the heroine attends. 18 years old. Always smiling without a care, he gives off an unreliable atmosphere, but he has gained the students' absolute trust thanks to his sincere personality. By the way, it seems he is the heir of the president of the world-renowned Sensui group.
"Oh? Somehow you don't seem very energetic. That's not good, you shouldn't push yourself."
Ayase Nanami: the mysterious, charismatic beautician. A famous 27-year-old beautician who is popular with women. It is said that his hands can make any woman beautiful, just like magic. Nanami is calm and has a gentle demeanor, but like the unseen bottom of a lake, somehow he is also mysterious.
"Now, come here, Princess. I wonder what sort of magic it is that you desire?"
The following are the guys from the "Nightmare" side, or from the dream world Michiru travels to when she's asleep.
Adamas: the lone purity. The incarnation of diamond. He's rigid, ruthless, and considers everything around him to be impure and worthless. He really hates emotional behavior, and so he truly despises Ru, who always follows his emotions anytime anywhere.
"Don't come any closer. I have no interest in filthy, worthless gems."
Ru: the starving, "carnivorous" beast. The incarnation of ruby. Directly following his instincts, he is an aggressive brute without any self-control. He immediately says what he thinks, and attacks anyone he doesn't like—no matter who they are. He also follows his rising impulse to chase after the heroine.
"Leave your everything to me. Even if you drown in this glimmer… it's okay."
Saphy: the phantasmagoric do-S. The incarnation of sapphire. Moody and perverse, he really loves teasing, picking on and even ignoring the heroine just to draw out various expressions from her. His technique changes each time, so it's almost impossible to avoid him.
"I will carefully love you here. So show me more and more radiance. Okay? Big sister."
Emer: the luscious tactician. The incarnation of emerald. Having a diabolical beauty and a brilliant mind, he's always a little aloof from the world. He thinks of the heroine as nothing more than a pawn to get the other gems to crush each other, and he approaches her with sweet words.
"From the bottom of my heart, I think you are lovely. Especially because you're gullible like this."
Alen: the mad, unstable yandere. The incarnation of alexandrite. Due to his abnormally strong desire to monopolize and to protect, he shows excessive reactions to anything that might harm or take the heroine away from him. His emotions are unstable. He would tremble, cry and yell before gently hugging her. He's rather hard to handle.
"I will protect you from everything that can harm you…so you will only look at me, right?"
So far, no release date or seiyuu have been announced for Jewelic Nightmare.
