Scooped in the June issue of Tech Gian released yesterday (April 21st) and with an official site now online, new brand Geesen 18 announces the production of Chou Kanojo, the world’s first* (*Guinness record pending) combination fishing simulation game and eroge, slated for release on July 27th.

My initial reaction to this was another “oh, Japan” moment, but after thinking for a bit the brand’s stated goal seems quite clever – bringing the realms of geesen (game center, arcade) kitsch and ero together is a niche that has a good bit of unexplored potential. The more obvious tie-ins have already been done, though, leaving me to wonder what other genres Geesen 18 will be probing in the future… (screenshot below)
