Bandai Namco Games recently announced that they will be releasing a new dating simulation game for the PlayStation Portable featuring AKB48, to be entitled “AKB 1/48 If I Were to Love an Idol in Guam…” (AKB 1/48 Idol to Guam de Koi Shitara...).
AKB 1/48 If I Were to Love an Idol in Guam… is the second "ultimate dating fantasy game" inspired by the all-female idol group AKB48. It will have a new story but similar to the first game, “AKB 1/48 If I Were to Love an Idol…” (AKB 1/48 Idol to Koi Shitara…), the player can choose one of the AKB48 members after each one confesses her love.
The new game will feature 48 members of the group's Teams A, K, and B (as of June 20) in swimsuit footage shot on location in Guam. It will ship on October 6 and will be available in three different versions:
