Japanese Games, Developers, Artists Celebrate Valentine's Day 2020

Here's your fill of Valentines 2020 themed cute girls artwork and illustrations published by various Japanese studios and developers.

Valentine Day 2020 happened and as usual when such events rolls around, Japanese games studios, artists, character designers and developers all shared some Valentine-themed artwork on Twitter. Mobile and gacha games all do their own events too, revealing new illustrations for their characters. In Japan, Valentine Day is about women giving presents to men, with White Day on March 14 being the opposite, so the vast majority of artwork feature female characters. However, we have some male characters too. DualShockers compiled for your viewing pleasure various Valentines 2020 themed illustrations, gameplay videos, and a few bonuses, so you don’t have to set out for Twitter by yourself and face the cruel battlefield devoid of love that is social media.

Note that this list isn’t exhaustive when it comes to gacha games, or else we’d be there until Valentine’s Day 2021. Moreover, a few of the illustrations are pretty raunchy, so you might think twice before scrolling down.
