A Japanese man has just married his girlfriend, Nene Anegasaki.
Here’s the catch: Nene is a video game character from the Nintendo DS game Love Plus.
The wedding took place during a Make: Japan meet-up held at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. In attendance were a live audience, an MC, the bride’s virtual video game girlfriend — who made a speech — and a real human priest.
The groom, who calls himself “SAL 9000″, reportedly had a string of anime girlfriends before Nene.
LovePlus seems to hook its players more than other dating sims. BoingBoing previously wrote about a woman whose husband “Koh” confessed to being “hooked” on his high-school, virtual girlfriend from Love Plus.
