Konami Dating Sim gets Facial Recognition Feature
| by Sriram Gurunathan |
Trust Japan to bring in the insanity. Last year, a man married a character from LovePlus, a Konami dating sim for the Nintendo DS. Now it seems LovePlus is in the news for a completely different reason – the 3DS version of the game, Project LovePlus, will have a facial recognition feature in order to identify the main player.
Don't you dare steal my lolis.
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has reported that if someone else tries to play your game, the character won’t recognize the player and will spout out things like “Who are you?” (Ice cold, woman. Ice cold). Anyway, this feature is called the “Boyfriend Lock” and will work by using the 3DS’ inner facing camera. This will ensure your friends do not go around stealing your virtual girlfriends.
LovePlus was a massive success for Konami and now the 3DS version is sure to have a lot of eyes on it too. It probably won’t be localized (just like the original), but the feature is an interesting one. Try imagining it being implemented in other games – like Pokemon or RPGs where loyalty is a factor. If this goes as far as the 3DS creating separate user profiles for different faces, it’d be totally cool.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
