You Can Kiss Other Dudes and Earn a Trophy For it in PSVita/3DS JRPG Exstetra

We already knew that in the newest PS Vita/3DS JRPG by FuRyu Exstetra the protagonist Ryoma can kiss his party members to grant them power, and there’s even a rather extensive kissing minigame you can perform in order to get the most out of the whole affair, gameplay-wise.

We also already suspected that Ryoma would kiss the male members of the party, since his kiss is what grants them the status of Knights of Prisma, and they are indeed described as Knights of Prisma. Up until today, though, FuRyu has been evasive about it, and didn’t show any footage or screenshot of the actual act.

Of course that secrecy could not last forever, and today the game hit the shelves. It didn’t take long for the first screenshots to appear on Twitter and you can check them out above and below (courtesy of kamia / girldoll), confirming that the kisses do indeed happen, and you can most definitely partake in the full minigame with both the boys in the party.

And that’s not all: in the PS Vita version you’ll also get a trophy for kissing them fifty times and for scoring an “ultimate” kiss with each of them, which is exactly the same treatment given to the ladies in the party.

While I kinda did see this coming, the lack of screenshots and/or footage made me wonder if FuRyu avoided it in some way. Glad to see that they didn’t, and that they had the guts to pull this off.

    The glasses dude kisses are always the best. Second one. Waaay better.

    It’s the same premise from Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls where the male character grants the power of the Master Samurai from a kiss.

    • Bankai

      It’s similar to Sekirei, as well.

        In short, a lot of harem franchises have done this to cater to one demographic or another, but not so many thought of letting it go either way.

    What are the chances of this getting localized to the West for PS Vita (both physical/digital release)?

    I know the 3DS localization will be out of the question.
    Edit: XSEED doesn’t want to localize it. I hope NIS America release for the West.

      If I had to guess, not good. I don’t know if it gets anymore explicit than kissing, but the male on male action alone might scare away any publishers. At least for NA markets that is, don’t know about other Western countries. Hopefully I’m wrong though.

    There’s nothing wrong with this. It’s just something that’s not gotten media attention or a strong place in fiction because of social prejudices.

    • Vrrumdri

      That is, I assume it has not gotten media or fiction attention, but my scope on that is very limited and I may well be wrong.

    Welp…there goes any chance of Localization, lol! I was so hoping this game would get localized, there is a girl in the game/anime that reminds me so much of Kos-Mos(my baby)!

    The would probably delete the man kissery even if they did bring the game over.

    • British_Otaku

      Really, games don’t get localised when two male characters kiss? >_>
      Naruto is pretty big here and that’s one of the first chapters or episodes.
      Aside from kissing apparently being cool in games in general.

      It gets repeated and referenced often as well…

    • Pyrotek85

      Well I wouldn’t say it has no chance. I mean, I’m still surprised we’re getting Senran Kagura completely uncensored later this month, which I wouldn’t have expected. Especially not on a Nintendo machine.

  • PrinceHeir

    glad you have the option for both genders 😀

  • Gian Dominguez

    I can tell you right now, a guy’s kiss and a girl’s kiss is the same. The guy could potentially be abit more “forceful” but its still feels the same.
