Japanese app developer Voltage has announced this week that its catalogue of dating simulation apps  for women (there are about 60 in total) has surpassed 22 million users. The milestone was reached back in February, according to the company (PDF).
Included in the company’s repertoire are Sudden Kiss for a Promise, Office Secrets (also available in English if you’d like to try), as well as Gossip Girl, a title based on the popular American TV show.
We interviewed Voltage representative Emiri Okawa last year at the Tokyo Game Show, as you may recall (see below).
An explanation on translation: Voltage calls this genre of apps love/romance drama apps. We’ll opt for ‘dating simulation’, in the interests of clarity. ↩
