2700 visitors experience the world of “Visual Romance Apps” at Voltage Inc’s ANIME EXPO 2015 booth “Kabedon” becomes popular internationally!
With over 200,000 visitors, Anime Expo is the largest convention for anime and manga in North America. This year, Voltage has expanded their booth to twice the size of last year’s and features the visual romance app, “My Forged Wedding”, which has placed #1 in stores in 52 countries. The booth includes a replica of a chapel with stained glass windows, which appears in the app, where over 2700 visitors enjoyed taking pictures with models dressed as grooms. Not only that, visitors had the opportunity to experience “kabedon”, a romantic situation which has recently gained popularity in Japan. Not only our lively booth , but there was a lot of posting of picture which were taken in our chapel on their social media.
Besides showcasing popular app titles, the booth also introduced an original app by Voltage Entertainment USA (subsidiary of Voltage Inc.) called “Labyrinths of Astoria” which is planned to be released in July. Visitors to the booth could preregister for the app and the number of people who pre-registered surpassed 1100.
As of 2011, “visual romance apps” aimed towards international audiences have made top entertainment rankings in the American App Store and become more widespread among English speaking countries. Voltage plans to continue to produce high quality apps in the future.
