Description

“The Kitakousai festival was coming up at school, but the members of SOS were running around making the movie out of Haruhi’s idea. What happened at this busy time of the members? Taking place in the back stage that wasn’t shown in the anime, players are able to enjoy the original story of the game. The secret that leads to the TV anime is now revealed!!”

The PSP game is an interactive novel with spot animations and voice acting that's provided by the actors from the animated series. Players take on the role of Kyon and engage in various interactions with the main cast members and read the conversations that ensue. Although the story in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yakusoku is based on the "The Sighs of Suzumiya Haruhi," the scenarios and overall material are new and written exclusively for the game. Multiple endings are also possible depending on the actions that one takes over the course of the game. In addition to the interactive experience, a number of mini-games are also playable at certain junctures including a simple beach volleyball diversion. Bandai touts a new "Motion Portrait" technology that's used in the game where lifelike facial expressions are imbued on the characters so that they appear to be "living" renditions of the heroines we've grown to adore.

Description

Mikuru Asahina is the fourth member to join the SOS Brigade, and the only person other than Kyon to join against her will. She is a shy and cute "moe" girl, often harassed by Haruhi Suzumiya. She is secretly a time traveler from the future who came back in time to observe Haruhi. She is best friends with Tsuruya and shows a great talent for brewing tea. Mikuru often has trouble talking to Kyon because many of the things he asks about are "classified". Mikuru is the mascot for the SOS Brigade, mainly as a way to attract attention. Because she is so popular, Haruhi uses her as eye candy.

Though he was sent to North High by the 'Agency' to observe Haruhi, he believes that it was Haruhi's will that really brought him there.

Description

Yuki Nagato is the third person to join the SOS Brigade. At first glance, she appears to be an introverted, taciturn bibliophile. She later reveals herself to Kyon as an alien created by the Data Overmind, and possesses supernatural powers as a result. She was sent to North High to watch over Haruhi Suzumiya, and over the course of her time there she comes to develop insights into being a person, as well as emotions (according to Kyon). She is commonly known by her surname "Nagato" (which is not unusual), as Kyon often called her by her surname, as opposed to how he almost always called Haruhi Suzumiya by her given name "Haruhi".

Description

Suzumiya Haruhi is the title character, the main female protagonist of the series, and leader of the SOS Brigade whose energetic and eccentric character proves to be the driving force for the series. She has a mind for adventure which often leads her subordinates to be swept into her plans. While being smart, beautiful, and energetic Haruhi was eyed as an oddball ever since middle school: She set all the desks from her classroom out into the hallway, painted stars on the roofs, and even painted a huge hieroglyph on the school field (though this was later shown to be Kyon). Haruhi cannot stand boredom so she comes up with activities for the SOS Brigade, making them participate whether they like it or not. In the sixth grade, Haruhi felt she was no longer special after going to a baseball game and realizing she was one in a sea of people. After that she set out to make her life interesting and unique. What Haruhi does not know is that she has an outstanding power to change the environment around her as she pleases. By subconsciously using it, she gathers Asahina Mikuru, Koizumi Itsuki, and Nagato Yuki into one place: the SOS Brigade. The story is indirect in saying how much Yuki, Mikuru and Itsuki know about each other.
