Happy Weekend Everyone!
If you were just at our industry panel earlier today at Anime Expo, you might've already seen the news but just in case we'd like to fill everyone in on some updates.

First off, here's the main visual for the game!
NEKOPARA Extra is a prequel to the NEKOPARA series and revolves around Chocola and Vanilla when they are first brought to the Minaduki household. There are definitely some interesting things to note which gets referenced in the game series such as Coconut and her growth spurt that has her overtake Azuki's height in short time.
Next up, here's some character sheets that also shows some of the age progressions of the various catgirls.
Aren't they all adorable? Next we also have some event CGs to show off as well which show the interactions between each of the catgirls with each other and Kashou as well.
There are definitely some interesting surprises in NEKOPARA Extra from what can be seen in the interaction with Kashou, Chocola and Vanilla, Coconut and Azuki, Cinnamon and Maple and of course Kashou and Shigure.
