Thank you very much to fellow otome blogger Hayurika @tsumigen for informing me of two otome Kickstarter campaigns currently running. First is Cinderella Phenomenon by Dicesuki, which has reached its £1,900 (approx. US$2,463) goal and has currently raised £3,176 (approx. $4,118) by 142 backers with 5 days left until the campaign concludes.

 

The second campaign introduced to me by Hayurika is of Mystic Destinies: Echoes by Star Maiden Games. Echoes will focus on the antagonists of their first game- Mystic Destines: Serendipity of Aeons– and will feature a new protagonist. The campaign has been successful, raising $9,867 out of its initial $7,500 goal by 179 backers with 13 days to go until the Kickstarter ends.

 

OELVN otome team Naïve Sprites have informed me that they plan on launching a Kickstarter of their game (with a demo also available for Windows and Mac users), A Very Important Date. Naïve Sprites recently launched a Prefundia page, which they describe as a “sneak peek into their Kickstarter campaign”.

 

In the 06/10/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 21/9/2016), Haitaka no Psychedelica and Dynamic Chord feat. [rêve parfait] V Edition were reviewed. Haitaka scored 33 (8/8/9/8), which lead to the receipt of a Famitssu Gold award and Dynamic Chord scored 29 (8/7/7/7), which means it did not receive a Famitsuu award at all. For those unfamiliar with the Famitsuu Cross Review scoring system, it involves a panel of 4 game critics reviewing the same game with each critic giving it a score from 0~10. This makes 40 the highest possible score, with awards of distinction being given to games earning: 30~31/40 = Famitsuu Silver, 32~34/40 = Famitsuu Gold and 35+/40 = Famitsuu Platinum.

 

Otomate and Hifumi Books will be releasing a Kyoukai no Shirayuki artbook on 21/10.

 

A greatest hits album entitled “Vitamin BEST XZR” featuring theme songs and character songs of Vitamin games X, Z and R will be released on 23/11.

 

Team Entertainment will be publishing an original soundtrack of Otomate’s Collar x Malice. It will contain all 20 BGM tracks featured in the game. However, it should be noted that none of the game’s theme songs will be included. The BGM of Collar x Malice was composed by MANYO.

 

A soundtrack of all new tracks featured in the upcoming Black Wolves Saga double PSV port Black Wolves Saga -Weiβ und Schwarz- will be released a day after the port’s release- 27/1/2017). The soundtrack is called “BLACK WOLVES SAGA 「Anesthesia」” and will contain two discs. Disc 1 features the three new theme songs (and instrumental karaoke versions of them) “Anesthesia”, “Ikuyo no Yume” and “OATH”. Disc 2 contains what appears to be 8 new BGM tracks.

 

The download version of Scared Riders Xechs PSV port- Scared Riders Xechs Rev.– will be sold for 20% [5,400 → 4,320 yen] off until 03/10. Buyers can purchase and download the game via its PlayStation Store page.
