Like, more on the dating sim side than on the interactive story side.But there are definitely Western women and women around the world who are interested in Japanese culture through anime and J-pop and many of them also like the anime art style,” one interviewee said. This cultural gap sounded like the biggest hurdle in reaching the casual U. But anime is much more common in American media these days and I think a more realistic art style is just as appealing as an anime style.” Other responses mirrored that sentiment, with most saying that, while it may not be as common in the US, there was definitely a growing interest.Though she also admitted that “at the same time, many Western audiences think that Japanese anime looks childish and prefer more realistic illustrations,” which explains the clear visual distinction between Voltage’s exclusively U. But in the end, while it may be interesting to consider cultural differences, both the survey and the feedback from Voltage employees reflected my original sentiment: romance is romance, regardless of culture.This past summer, for example, they conducted surveys with hundreds of Japanese and American female participants aged 19-44 regarding their personal experiences with love.And while many of their findings showed that—just like comedy—romantic thrills are generally universal, Voltage did find some key and intriguing cultural differences between the two.And since establishing their San Francisco branch back in 2012, they’re slowly but surely climbing up the charts here too.After releasing both localized versions of their Japanese apps, as well as some U. originals, Voltage become the 6th highest-grossing app developers on Google Play (though that ranking is from a category separate to other games.)

Each game is structured around the same free-to-play model, which includes a free download for the prologue, and a charge of .99 per love interest you decide to romance in the story.For one thing, the fantasy of the “knight in shining armor” proved particularly alive and well in the American demographic, with 37% of participants reporting a belief in the long-standing romantic cliche, while Japanese women represented less than half that number.On the other hand, Japanese women reported feeling much more comfortable with their romantic partners keeping secrets from them (love hotels—did someone just say “love hotels” or am I hearing things? But, as I’m sure most of the American male dating population can probably attest to, U. women erred on the side of a strict “tell all” policy in their relationships.“Many users in conventional relationships worldwide look to romance apps to allow them to experience, in a virtual space separate from reality, the thrill and excitement of slightly embarrassing lines and situations their real-life husbands and partners may not provide them with,” reads Voltage’s press release on the Game Show booth.But while they seem to have mastered giving these kinds of thrills to a Japanese audience, Voltage is still experimenting with how how to satisfy all the virtual romantic needs of Western women.
