Having an idol as your girlfriend isn't all honey and roses, the more popular she becomes, the less time she has for you. All the time unspent and the words unsaid deepen the gap between you two.

The misunderstandings started out small, but eventually they snowballed into massive conflicts. Until one day in winter, you realized that everybody, especially the girls around you are drawn into the chaos.

All graphics in the game are delicately drawn by Kawata Hisashi to bring out the sorrowful, but gentle atmosphere. And by using the motion portrait system, you can pick up the girls' body language and their moods even easier.

Voiced by famous seiyuus such as Hirano Aya (Suzumiya Haruhi) and Mizuki Nana (Paz in MGS), the girls who vie for your affections will be more attractive than ever, making your choice between them even more difficult.

Find your ideal girlfriend in White Album. The romance simulation is available to PlayStation3™ gamers:
