This is actually news from late last week, and I must’ve overlooked it before. Yet it’s not something that should be kept from you, if you are a fan of SkyFish poco’s works that is. The cast names for their upcoming game “Wan Nyan ☆ A La Mode! ~Docchi ni Suru no? Wan Nyan H na Cafe Jijou!~” were announced, and it’s a good opportunity to look at the game as a whole.
But first, the main purpose of this post, the cast names:
- Korone Nekohana: Maya Suzuya (vndb)
- Shinono Inukai: Suzuka Fujimura (vndb)
- Makoto Nekodomari: Mami Yahiro (vndb)
- Hana Inuta: Mashiro Kazehana (vndb)
- Hinana Nekojou: Sakura Hanazawa (vndb)
- Michiyo Inuyama: Marina Oono (vndb)
- Fumiko Mameshiba Shepherd: Mako Ayane (vndb)
A partial list where you can connect the names with the faces is available on the official site for the game. Those who are familiar with some Japanese might recognize the patterns in their last names, which alternate between cats and dogs. In Wan Nyan this seems to play a central part of the story, fairly similar to the generic theme behind some of the previous works by SkyFish poco.
PochiTama Pâtissière Academy is an extremely prestigious school, known for graduating top class pâtissières and western confectionary artisans. Getting into the school is easy, however it’s said that actually graduating is very difficult. The school is actually not just limited to Japan either, it has branches all over the world. And only the best trainees amongst the students are invited over to the main school.
Those that were invited have to stay on the main campus for a few weeks as they run their own stores, controlled by the school. Then 2 MVPs will be chosen from their ranks which will be allowed to train at one of several famous stores around the world. In other worlds, it’ll be the first foothold they can get to travel the world. Naturally, each of the students will do their very best to get nominated as one of those MVPs.
Now, what role will our protagonist have in this story? Which store will you work for? And who will you befriend?
The official site does not yet feature a release date, but sites like getchu currently have it dated for December 25.
