Love Plus Plus Plus

Several people I know on Facebook posted this article about a town in Japan that for years had been known as a prime honeymoon spot, but has lately been neglected as people have not been getting married.

The town decided to do something about it. In the Konami game “Love Plus +” (which is an update to the original game, “Love Plus”) the ending takes place in the town of Atami, the prime honeymoon spot mentioned in the first paragraph.

The town decided to formally invite Love Plus gamers to their town. Over a thousand people (and their virtual girlfriend) converged on the town.

No word yet on if Atami will also invite the body-pillow-girlfriend crowd.
