Tokimeki Memorial 3: Yakusoku no Ano Basho de is a dating sim developed and published by Konami and the third game in the Tokimeki Memorial series. Tokimeki Memorial 3, released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, further pushed the technical limits for dating sims, being the first game to have fully 3-D animated cel-shaded girls. However, many fans were disappointed by the appearance of the girls, which although well-animated did not look as polished as 2D art, as well as by the simplified gameplay system. The game did not sell as well as expected, and as a result of this, unlike the previous two games in the series, Tokimeki Memorial 3 had no Drama games or spin-offs produced. It was the last new game in the original series until the announcement of Tokimeki Memorial 4 in 2009.
