Sonicomi – Communication with Sonico

Become Sonico’s photographer in Sonicomi!

Have you heard of Super Sonico, the idol, guitarist and vocalist of the band First Astronomical Velocity? Well, she is a character created by Tsuji Santa for computer and video software game company Nitroplus. Since her ‘birth’ back in 2006, where she was a mascot for a Nitroplus-sponsored music festival, she developed into a brand franchise that includes music products, an anime series, a manga series, toy figurines, computer/video games (like Sonicomi: Communication with Sonico) and lots more. The anime based on her is called SoniAni: Super Sonico The Animation, it is a 12-episode series that ran in January 2014.

She is known as an 18-year-old college student, attractive, voluptuous with light pink skin, large pink eyes and straight long light-pink hair. She always wears her signature headphones on her head. She plays a heritage cherry red Gibson SG electric guitar with a batwing pickguard and black pickup covers named “Daydream.’ Her band members call Super Sonico ‘Nico’.

Today we focus on one of the Super Sonico games named Sonicomi: Communication with Sonico. In the game Super Sonico is about to make her modeling debut and it is up to the player, who plays her personal photographer to work on her image and balance her needs with his or her own vision of what he or she desire Sonico should become in the future. Going cute and sexy or weird? These questions the player must ask as the player chooses her costumes for each occasion. Will the player make her go down the path of a mainstream model or make her a subculture icon? Will she evolve into something even beyond imagination? It all depends since the player has the power to shape her future, to guide her and support her as she follows her dreams.

When Super Sonico is not working as a model, visual novel game type elements come to play as the player gets to talk and interact with her to learn more about her, help her make decisions and with options to become her lover or friend. Just more super sugoi choices to get one of the 18 endings of the game!

The photographer part of the game is almost like a first-person-shooter-type scenario (well technically you ARE shooting with a camera, yes?). The player chooses the location, throws together an outfit then starts shooting photos. In the photo shoot, the player scores points by shooting at colored rings before they disappear. That is not all; the player has to give attention to our beautiful model, as Sonico might need a boost to her morale and enthusiasm during the shoot as well. The happier Sonico is, the more daring her poses!
