  • Summary: Our protagonist is a fan of Japanese anime and games. He makes friends with some Japanese people on the internet, and decides to stay with them for a week.

    Thrilled by the prospect of a week's sightseeing in Japan, he touches down in the airport, only to discover that his new friends --
    "Makoto" and "Akira" -- are actually a pair of attractive young sisters!

    After their introductions, the protagonist arrives at their house to learn that no one else is there.
    "Um... where are your parents?"
    "Our parents were called out of town for two weeks on urgent business."
    (In other words, the only ones in the house will be Makoto, Akira, and I?)
    (How is that going to work!?)

    The local culture has some surprises in store on your first night there, but you'll soon head out on the town! Enjoy the date-like atmosphere as Makoto and Akira take you on a tour of famous sites. You'll marvel at the beauty and history of Japanese culture, fill up on local delicacies, and even share some thrilling moments with the girls!

    The week you spend in Japan will certainly be memorable!

    Ultimately what you have here is a visual guidebook (which is great but not really helpful at home on your PC) overlayed with an interactive romance novel, where the protagonist has minimal input to the final outcome, unless they know where you need to go to get the girl you want.

    For everyone else, Go! Go! Nippon doesn’t go far enough in any one direction to be recommended as anything more than a pleasant diversion for a few hours.

    Fun short story with two endings based on your choices during the game. Lots of information on Japanese culture and sightseeing spots in Japan. Great game but I still wonder what happened on the characters second trip with the girl they end up with. Expand

    Go! Go! Nippon! is a visual novel about a guy from an ambiguous country that takes a sightseeing tour around Japan (mostly Tokyo) with the help of two Japanese girls. This game is a bit of an oddity. There's actually very little gameplay here; you make roughly five choices throughout the whole experience.

    Most of this novel consists of an animated, factual tour guide of Japanese hot spots, complete with history lessons. I found it pretty interesting, if a little dry at times. It was pretty neat to see Shibuya, which I rember from two other games I've played (The World Ends With You and SMT: Devil Survivor). This game tries really hard to capture the feel of everyday events in Tokyo, and it was cool to see all of these things described in great detail and in a way that points out things that foreigners would find unique.

    You might also expect some romance from this description, and if so, you'd be correct. The places you visit determine which girl accompanies you, and you end up with the one that accompanied you the most. I only played through once, and I saw a little over half the content. The romance plot is not that interesting and ends before it really blooms. I kind of wish it was left out, especially the more, well, risque images. (Ecchi, I think. Not quite hentai.)

    So basically, if you're looking for a fun game, this isn't one. This is a visual novel about being a tourist in Japan stapled to a romantic manga story. It only took me about 90 minutes to get through one playthrough, so it's a pretty quick experience. All in all, if you can enjoy a visual novel and you have some interest in Japan, I can recommend this. Not at $10, though... wait for a Steam sale. If my description didn't sound interesting to you, then this simply isn't for you and it won't be worth your time or money.
