PS Vita Exclusive Tokyo Clanpool Gets New Trailer Showing "Ether Sensitivity" [Slightly NSFW]

Tokyo Clanpool for PS Vita showcases its traditional farfetched excuse for fanservice in a brand new trailer.

August 17, 2017

Tokyo Clanpool is a Compile Heart game with a bunch of anime girls, and this article is about a weirdly-named procedure to be done on them. Combined with the warning in the headline, you probably already know where this is going.

Basically, the girls of the game are sensitive to ether, and by applying it to special points in their body via the Vita’s touch screen, you can unlock effects like 10% HP increase, special attacks frequency increase by 7%, speed increase by 7%, or 4% bonus to acquired experience.

Ether has five different attributes, and the effect of the procedure changes greatly depending on what kind of ether you apply to the girls, and where you touch.


As an additional effect (actually, this is the whole point, but they’ll sell it as a byproduct), their special leotard will take on the color of their skins gradually as you keep touching. What a convenient side effect!

This is all done at the special political science lab, conveniently led by Iroha, which is your friendly neighborhood sexy scientist, because nothing says “for science” like a lab coat fashionably draped around your shoulders.

You can check out the trailer below, and if you want to see more, you can check out another recent trailer, and more info and screenshots on the battle system.

Tokyo Clanpool releases in Japan on Octber 5th, exclusively for PS Vita. No western release has been announced, for the moment.
