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.

- 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.

There are two versions of the game for pre-order:
Along with the game this edition includes a tall-standing high quality acrylic figure of Super Sonic 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.
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 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 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 truely a rare pre-order only item for hardcore Sonico fans.
This is a pre-order scheduled to be released in Summer 2016.

Before anyone asks, no this isn't an eroge. There's no adult elements or anything, so don't go in expecting that. The most you'll get are swimsuit/ecchi moments.
As for what it is, it's essentially a visual novel/photo simulator. It's nice to see that the PC release has the improved PS3 visuals [as mentioned in the listing, the visuals of this version was back-ported from the PS3 to the PC] and you get 10% off the final price by pre-order prior to release.
Also, I absolutely did not pre-order the Collector's Edition for the body mouse pad. Nope, not at all. Actually, if you can overlook the "lewdness" of it, that style of mouse pad is actually crazy comfortable and supports the wrist well. By the way, the value for the Collector's Edition is pretty decent (+$94.50 USD), considering a similar mouse pad of Super Sonico was priced/released in Japan at 10,000 yen, and that was before shipping. It was also limited/exclusive. Given the size/weight of it, as well as the fact that EMS shipping from Japan is included in the cost for the mouse pad, it's well-priced. If you have a need/want for this sort of thing, that is.
