The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail: Issue #8

AerlAmnesia.jpg

Hello again!

From this issue onwards, I’ll be listing all 2016 otome games (with websites updated enough to ensure the games aren’t dead projects) instead of only the games with website updates for the week. This way, readers can use the “Upcoming Otome Game Site Updates” section like a release calendar. Also, I’ve updated the The Otome Visual Novel Releases Post of April 2016 with Destiny’s Princess: A War Story, A Love Story.

 

 

 

+ Reporting period: 4/4/2016~10/4/2016 +

 

Countdowns: Kamigami no Asobi: InFinite from 10/4/2016 until 21/4/2016.
Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan release approaching (21/4/2016), countdowns to possibly commence soon.

 

A TV anime series was initially announced for Scared Rider Xechs during an event held on 03/4/2016 called “Scared Rider Xechs NEW DAYS 2016 Spring Submissions”. The announcement was then Tweeted later on through the game’s official Twitter account. Details are sparse at this point, though what’s know is that the anime will air during summer 2016.

 

To celebrate the conclusion of the 4-part Taishou x Alice PC game series, Primula will be releasing a free limited and exclusive desktop wallpaper through DMM. Please note that some countries are blocked by DMM Japan so a proxy may be required to access the site.

 

Ladies’ accessory creators Aerl’s high-end brand “Aerl*les bijouxwill be releasing a bag charm with a design inspired by Heroine from the Amnesia series. The charm will cost 9,800 yen and will include an illustration card. Since it’s a preorders-only product, fans have from 04/4/2016 to 09/5/2016 to place their orders. The charm will then be delivered during June 2016.

 

To celebrate Muroboshi Ron of Norn9 ~Norn + Nonette~ series’ upcoming birthday, COZYWAVE will be releasing a gift pack which is planned to be released during May 2016. The gift pack will contain a bottle of frangrance oil, a bag charm and a postcard all made and designed in Ron’s image for 6,480 yen. Interestingly, official material doesn’t specify when Ron’s birthday actually is, so COZYWAVE said that they’ve instead used his starsign (which is Gemini; 21/5~21/6) as a guideline.

 

★ In a very similar vein to the aforementioned, COZYWAVE will also be releasing two gift packs (the exact same pack as above, same price) to celebrate the birthdays of the Amnesia series‘ Tooma (12th April) and Ikki (1st June). Both packs will be released during May 2016.

 

The 2-part PlayStation Vita Hakuouki port series Hakuouki Shinkai will be getting 6 drama CD series released by Team Entertainment on a monthly basis from 25/5/2016 to October 2016. There will be exclusive storylines that will not only feature the main Shinsengumi members, but also those outside of the series’ staples such as Iba Hachirou (CV: Miki Shin’ichirou) and Motoyama Kotarou (CV: Hatano Wataru).

 

Frontier Works will be publishing a DVD of the Heart no Kuni no Alice series play called “The Best Revival”, which was initially performed during January 2016. The DVD will hit stores on 29/6/2016.

 

A soundtrack of Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Teito Genwaku Kitan has been announced through the game’s official Twitter account, and will be published by Frontier Works. The soundtrack will contain the OP, ED and all BGM tracks with its jacket illustration being drawn by Satoi, the game’s artist. The CD is expected to be released on 22/4/2016, a day after the game’s release.

 

With the release of Kamigami no Asobi: InFinite approaching (21/4/2016), Broccoli and Nippon Ichi have released a download edition of the prequel, Kamigami no Asobi -Ludere Deorum- on 08/4/2016 through the PlayStation Store. Both PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita players can download and play the original game.

 

Dengeki Girl’sStyle have revealed that a new Otomate new game is in the works through their May 2016 issue of the Dengeki Girl’sStyle otome magazine (released on 09/4/2016). The game will be called “Hana Oboro: Sengoku Denranki” and will likely feature 5 main romanceable guys (based on the magazine showcasing illustrations of 5 guys). Details are very scarce at this point with no projected release date announced as of yet.

 

Revealed earlier in issue #67 of otome and BL magazine Cool-B, Mashou Megane’s staff updated their blog with the game’s cast:

~ Akazawa Karen (protagonist; name changeable) – Ayumi Sara (Okamoto Rie)
~ Peach – Shinsen Ryoku (Kitayama Kyousuke)
~ Cidre – Kuroi Isamu (Shirai Yuusuke)
~ Doutei – Yajima Noboru (Sudou Shou)
~ Ouji-sama – Sawa Manaka (Nakazawa Masatomo)
~ Tink – Hina Hazuki
~ Ojii-san – Ide Gorou
~ Obaa-san – Itou Sara (Yokote Kumiko)

 

Both Hakuouki Shinkai games (Kaze no Shou and Hana no Shou) will be getting free DLC. The DLCs will contain 6 fully-voiced mini-episodes featuring the 6 main characters of their respective games and one 100% completion CG each. The links to the PlayStation Store haven’t been provided as of yet.

 

The Steam PC edition of smartphone otome game Sengoku Hime ~Jika no Chigiri~ has been released in Japanese, English and Chinese on 06/4/2016. The game is listed on Steam in its localised title, “Destiny’s Princess: A War Story, A Love Story“. Additionally, players can get 40% off the game until 13/4/2016. The Otome Visual Novel Releases Post of April 2016 has been updated to include this game.
