There’s just 2 days to go before the PSP portable game AKB 1/48 Idol to Koishitara is released on the 23rd December and it’s set to become a best seller. The game which revolves around the player confessing their love to one AKB48 member and turning down the rest has already pre-sold 250,000 copies and the gaming industry expects 500,000 to be shifted eventually. In terms of a game focusing on a niche genre, this is an extraordinary figure. It seems that everything the group is doing is turning into gold right now. I just hope they won’t oversaturate the market with AKB48 goods otherwise people will start to get sick and tired seeing their faces on products.
