The fandisc is scheduled for release in 2013.[2] An anime television series adaptation titled Walkure Romanze, produced by Eight Bit and directed by Y?suke Yamamoto, it aired from October 6 to December 22, 2013.

Plot

Takahiro agrees to train Mio as her Begleiter, but only until the duel is over.[3] She later enrolls in the annual competition.[3] She and the four other heroines all want Takahiro to become their Begleiter.

Development

Walkure Romanze is Ricotta's second game, after their first game, Princess Lover!, released in 2008.[4] The scenario for Walkure Romanze is being written by Hare Kitagawa, Takami Tanikawa, Hatsu, Natake, Octopus, assault and Orgel.[1] Kitagawa's authoring credits include Akiiro Renka,[5]Happiness! Re:Lucks,[6] and Time Leap.[7] The art and character designs will be handled by Kei Komori,[1] who also worked on Princess Lover!.[8]

Due to the unusual jousting theme of the game and Komori's personal love for armour, the Ricotta staff had to do a lot of research.[3] With regards to the game, the staff would like the player to pay close attention to how the sport of jousting brings the protagonist and the heroine together, and how the trust between the two slowly blossoms into love.[9] They also stated that they originally had five heroines being designed but the number was later cut down to four.[3]

Release history

Walkure Romanze was originally planned to be released in the winter of 2009 but has since been delayed[10] to 2010.[11] It was scheduled for June 24, 2011 but was then subsequently delayed to September 30, 2011.[12]
