MangaGamer brings Da Capo II in time for Christmas


Looking for something a little naughty to stuff your stocking with? How about the latest in MangaGamer's Da Capo series -- one of their best-selling titles of all time.

It's got romance, adventure and the requisite drama of a bunch of friends sticking it to each other as they learn what love is really about. We knew MangaGamer was bringing Da Capo II to the States since the summer, but now we've got a release date: December 24.

Running about $46, the game sounds like a good one to play while you wait up all night for Santa to show up. Of course, if you've got a significant other, why not play the game together? Nothing helps brings you two together by deciding which characters should make sexy time.

Check out more information about the game below (and a few screenshots in the gallery!), and expect us to review the game once we're past the holiday gluttony and laziness. Oh, and shoveling snow. That's going to be a pain. At least I'm not where Zac is.

Cherry blossoms danced in the air,
Surprisingly slowly,
Without making a sound.

Cherry blossoms were fluttering to the ground as far as I could see,
As if they were trying to color this canvas,
As if they were trying to add color to this blank, white world.

They were gracefully dancing in the air.

It was so very beautiful—
Amazingly beautiful—
That even I, who was all alone,
Who could only shiver,
Who was so lonely,
And who was so lost, found myself fascinated
By that beautiful scene.

I thought that this must be a dream.

It was a blank dream:
A dream within a dream.

Although I knew I would wake up any minute,
I still longed to dream.

It felt like my heart was brimming with new expectations,
It felt like I could shed a tear as I basked in the sun,
And it felt like I was waiting for spring to come in the middle of winter
As I dreamt.

I squeezed the hand that was stretched out towards me.
It was a warm hand.
In this freezing cold world,
In the snow,
I seek out its warmth,
And squeeze it.

That was
The beginning of my dream that announced the beginning…

Once again, winter begins to settle on Hatsune Island. As the cherry blossoms of the Everlasting Cherry Tree dance amongst the falling snow, Yoshiyuki, his two sisters, and his friends are all getting ready for the holiday season. Kazami Academy is bustling as everyone prepares for the Christmas party, decking the halls and practicing their performances. When Christmas Break passes, they too will begin the final stretch of their last year at the academy. Will Yoshiyuki and the others find love in this holiday season, or will it pass by like every year before? What mysterious power does the Everlasting Cherry Tree hold?

Find out in this stunningly gorgeous slice of life tale of love, romance, and drama between a group of friends who never expected something more to happen.
