Apart from the recently released love adventure Erde and the previously announced adventure Iris, Kid is preparing two new PlayStation 2 games for their upcoming releases: My Merry May and Ai Yori Aoshi.
The earlier tells the story of Yasusuke, a senior high school student, who lives a normal student's life until one day he receives a strange device from abroad. This device creates Reu, an artifical human being in form of a young girl, who loves Yasusuke and cats. The remaining cast of heroines include Hitoe Haruna, Yasusuke's childhood friend, Motomi Agatsuma, the girlfriend of Yasusuke's nemesis Ryo Hagimoto, 21-year old Tae Kiduki and 13-year old high school student Misao Yuki.
My Merry May is scheduled to be released in Japan sometime this winter.
Ai Yori Aoshi's protagonist is an university student named Kaoru Hanabishi. While he was training to become the next head of the Hanabishi Zaibatsu, Kaoru decided to run away from home and since then has been living in tiny apartment. He will be joined by six heroines: Aoi Sakuraba - a girl who is set to inherit the Sakuraba department store; Tina Foster - one of Kaoru's fellow students; Taeko Minazugi; - another fellow student of Kaoru's; Miyabi Kagurazami - the Sakurabas' Guardian; Mayu Miyuki - a junior student at Kaoru's university; and Chika Minzugi - the younger sister of Taeko, who still attends high school.
Ai Yori Aoshi will be released in Japan sometime in spring 2003.
