To increase communication between schools and give the region extra appeal, the Atobe group are sponsoring an inter school event which every teenager has to take part, and this includes all the princes.

You are a 14 year old in charge of this event. Arrange actvities and organize people. Contact the princes to enlist their help. Get to know them, chat with them and develop a romantic relationship with one of them.

The game was a great hit when it came out on PlayStation2. This new improved version is fully voiced, with more heart fluttering events and for the first time in the series, the princes are going to call you by your (system default) name.

You probably already have someone in mind, go up and chat with them and learn about them from their friends. As soon as your affection level with them reaches a certain point, they'd do something special for you.

The princes are waiting for you, come arrange a date with them:

Become the white knight, defeat the evil sorcerers and rescue the princess. Orthodox storyline plus an innovative game system, White Knight Chronicles is a great hit when it came out in 2008 in Japan. Now, in 2010, the game is picked up for translation and localization so that English speaking gamers can enjoy the exciting adventure.

This is one perfect marriage between the arcade fight stick and the compact game pad. Perfect ergonomics, easy grip and very stylish are just a few of the merits of Hori's Turbo 2 Pad. The joystick that replaces the D-pad is perfect for fighters and the six button controls let you punch out skills even faster.

Lupin the legendary thief is up to mischief. Use both your wits and reflexes to steal into mansions and solve the mysteries behind paintings.
