The story is about six different girls from different lifestyles living on Hokkaido in Japan. They each live in a different city on the island. Each girl believes in a myth of snow turning into diamond dust, and if one makes a wish on the diamond dust, their wish is 100% guaranteed to come true. Another myth about diamond dust is that if a boy and girl meet under the dust, they're guaranteed happiness and marriage later in life. Each of the six girls have some stubborn moments and awkward stages in their lives, but looking into themselves and others will help them get back on their feet. When these six girls meet, their lives will change dramatically for the better as the snow begins to fall.
KITA E DIAMOND DUST KISS IS BEGINNING:
Taking place directly after the events of the first Kita He: Diamond Dust, the sequel ships the protagonist to Hokkaido for a continuation of potential love. Over the period of seven summer days, players interact and commingle with the girls in order to get to know them better. Perhaps if one girl is more appealing than the others, true love and marriage will blossom.
A new conversation system is introduced in DD+ called the Communication Break System where conversations may go off in tangents (as they do in real-life) if the player interjects when keywords are spoken by the girl. New conversations may then lead to alternate events which draw the couple closer together or at least more congenial towards each other. Like previous Kita He games, photographs of actual locations in Hokkaido are used for the backgrounds as the protagonist roams the city in search of true love.
