Nitroplus mascot Super Sonico is exploding in popularity this year as her 10th anniversary approaches. Following closely after the announcement of the international music release of First Astronomical Velocity’s albums and Sonico’s appearance in the PS4 game Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel, JAST USA has announced the release of the popular PC game SoniComi (Communication with Sonico) for summer 2016.

Die-hard Super Sonico fans can experience the fun of building a relationship with the headphone-wearing model and musician, and collect some super cool exclusive goods with this long-awaited USA release, including an extra-large contoured mouse pad with artwork by Tsuji Santa.

Sonicomi: Communication with Sonico

Super Sonico is a cheerful, hardworking college student and amateur musician who’s about to make her modeling debut. As her personal photographer, you will be responsible for Sonico’s image, balancing the needs of your clients with your own vision for Sonico’s future. Cute, sexy, weird — the costumes you choose will determine her path as a model. Will you cultivate mainstream appeal? Make Sonico a subculture icon? Or will she become something even you can’t imagine? It all depends on you!

Lead Sonico to Stardom

Sonico has the potential to become an international superstar. It’s your job to provide her with guidance and support as she chases her dreams. Depending on your actions, you can reach one of 18 wildly different endings. She might even fall in love with you!

Interact with Sonico

In between shoots, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Sonico in many different situations. Your choices will affect her opinion of you, potentially unlocking new story paths. In addition to dialogue options, you will also have opportunities to interact with Sonico by touching or looking at parts of her body. Be careful, as some choices can be dangerous. Are the potential rewards worth the risk?

Become a Photographer

Choose a location, put together an outfit, and get to shooting! During each FPS-style photography session, score points by shooting colored rings before they disappear. You must also manage Sonico’s enthusiasm by lifting her spirits with well-timed banter. The greater her enthusiasm, the more daring her poses! And don’t forget to keep an eye on her stamina; you don’t want her fainting in the middle of the shoot! Multiple difficulty levels are available.

– Full 3D animations for Sonico.
– High quality animations from the PS3 version were back-ported to this PC release.
– Hundreds of costumes and accessories to unlock.
– A cast of funny and interesting characters, including potential rivals.
– Shoot at 8 different locations, including the beach and a maid cafe!
– In addition to all this, get one more “secret” bonus with the game (to be announced later!

There are two versions of the game for pre-order:

Limited Edition
Along with the game this edition includes a tall-standing high quality acrylic figure of Super Sonico with new original artwork by Tsuji Santa, plus collectable cards with art from the game. You will also get a Steam Key, so you can add the game to your Steam library.

Collector’s Edition
This edition includes everything from the Limited Edition PLUS a full-body mousepad of Super Sonico created with new original art by Tsuji Santa. This mousepad is not a flat mousepad, but a huge 3D mousepad shaped as Sonico’s body! Her soft chest curves down to her smooth stomach and lower body; over twice the size of a regular moe mousepad. Weighing a firm 1.5kg, and 450mm×230mm×30mm (27x9x12 inches) in size, this is a collector’s item Sonico fans around the world will want to have. This mousepad has never been sold before in Japan and is limited to those who order this edition of the game, and will be shipped directly to you from Japan by speedy EMS shipping (included). This is in limited quantities and will never be reprinted again, so it’s truly a rare pre-order only item for hardcore Sonico fans.

This is a pre-order scheduled to be released in Summer 2016.
