For a moment, forget that Nintendo is releasing new portable hardware. Just imagine, there's you, schoolgirl Manaka and a DSi XL.

Dating simulator Love Plus is quite popular in Japan. It is getting an updated version this summer called Love Plus Plus, complete with special DSi XL bundles that come in three colors and three characters: Manaka (light blue), Rinko (green) and Nene (pink).

Nintendo has been including Love Plus in its DSi XL ad campaign to demonstrate the new handheld's larger screen.

To amuse itself, the Japanese internet has been posting photos of customized Love Plus DS portables.
