According to the official websites of anime and game, Yosuga no Sora

A publicity staff of Sphere, the manufacturer of the game, tweeted that he has been very busy receiving inquiries from the commerce society, the city council, the board of education and the tourism association of Ashikaga City. Anime tourism has become a common method to promote the local cities. Sengoku BASARA
and Lucky ☆ Star
are successful examples. However, game manufacturers are always worrying about the antipathy against adult games among the general public. The publicity staff had a hard time to minimize the involvement in the festival and save face of Ashikaga City at the same time. He said he will take full responsibility for anything that would be evoked by Yosuga no Sora's attendance at the festival.
