The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail: Issue #5

SundayMail#5NewOtome

UPDATED: 21/3/2016

Greetings!

I hope you enjoy issue #5 of The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail!

This week, we’ve got a couple of new otome game announcements to make up for the unfortunate news that the Kickstarter of Beastmaster and Prince ~Flower & Snow~ was unsuccessful. The new games are Oumagatoki ~Kakuriyo no Enishi~ by otome game newcomers eXtend and Crank In by Petit Reve.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of November 2015

As if to make up for the very uneventful (well, save for QuinRose’s demise) October 2015, most of November 2015’s releases are highly-anticipated titles! Fans of honeybee’s second big hit Ayakashi Gohan will finally get to play its fandisc, Ayakashi Gohan ~Okawari!~. I’m looking forward to the extra raburabu moments with the Inushima twins! The much-hyped Bad Apple Wars by notoriously hit-or-miss Otomate will also be coming this month. It seems like the first truly interesting title in a bit of a while by them.

Then we have a milestone of sorts in Goes!, which is the second title by Petit Reve (their first was Soukai Buccaneers) set in a Japanese magic academy. It’ll be the first otome game to implement a completely female seiyuu only cast! At the time of its announcement, Goes! receieved so much hype that the official website crashed. Finally, there is Sousaku Alice to Ouji-sama!, which is an original title created by the folks who brought us the official otome adaptation of KobaKawa.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of October 2015

Wow… This was the easiest Monthly Releases post I’ve ever written yet!

October 2015 is a pretty dull time to be an otome gamer unless you’re interested in any of the ports and remakes coming out this month. At least this month is a reminder for me to finally play Ayakashi Gohan. Speaking of honeybee, they’ve also delayed Starry Sky ~Spring Stories~ to be released during sometime in 2016.

An “announcement” of sorts: I’ve decided to no longer publish detailed information about fandiscs and direct sequels. The information of fandiscs/direct sequels can often be spoiler-ific (even without me realising due to not having played the original games) and it’s better off to just not include them. In the process of trying to police them, I’ve also come close to spoiling myself a few too many times so I’d like to avoid that as well.

Last, but not least, Art Move Corporation, a.k.a. QuinRose, has allegedly gone bankrupt and stopped operating as of 25th September, 2015. I’ve briefly written more about this after the “Read More” tab.

Otome Visual Novel Releases of September 2015

Is September the 和風 month or something? With Love:Quiz getting delayed until December, every game that’s coming out this month save for the final instalment of Photograph Journey will be of a traditional Japanese setting. While Yunohana Spring! is modern, the traditional countryside Japanese inn and onsen settings have a nice wafuu flavour. Genji Koi Emaki will be about nobles in the Heian period, Teikoku Kaigun Koi Bojou is set in the Meiji era and will involve the military of those times and Yoshiwara Higanbana, of course, is set in the Edo period with an emphasis on the (in)famous red light district. I’d say September is a decent month free of irredeemably shitty games, and that’s just fantastic!

Genji Koi Emaki 17-9-2015 PSV

Otome Visual Novel Releases of April 2015

It’s been a year since I first started the Monthly Releases series of posts… Can’t believe how quickly time has passed! Sadly, outside of this, there’s nothing truly notable about April 2015. It’s such an obvious dump month that I feel sorry for it! Fandiscs, sequels, ports, remakes… the only game that is a truly new release is Photograph Journey ~Koi Suru Ryokou Shizuoka-hen & Nagasaki-hen~. Good timing, in a way, since I’m very busy with my studies this month and could use the mid-April holidays to catch up on the otome games that have been stuck in my backlog for ages!

Title Release Date Platform
Norn9 ~Norn + Nonette~ Last Era 19-3-2015 → 2-4-2015 PSV

Otome Visual Novel Releases of March 2015

March will be a be a massive month, with a jaw-dropping 8 new releases to choose from with quite a bit of console variety. In spite of being a big month, many of the games are fairly uninspired. Not a great month to look for originality, but at least with the done-before settings here, nothing astoundingly stupid/crap has been tacked onto it so as to make it more interesting than it actually is. I’d say most of the games are safe choices unless you really loathe specific themes of the releases. It’s been a long time since there was a month with very minimal rubbish, so maybe this is the otome gods’ birthday gift to me!

 

New releases

Title Release Date Platform
Shin Tennis no Ouji-sama ~Go to the top~ 5-3-2015 N3DS
Koutarichou Jin’youtan ~Mayoigo no shou~ 6-3-2015 PC

Otome Visual Novel Releases of February 2015

Ugh, February is certainly not my month! It’s sad there are just as many ports/remakes/re-releases as there are new ones. Even so, Diabolik Lovers fans can rejoice, as the much-looked forward to sequel, Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate, is finally coming out after a long line of ports and fandiscs. Wafuu and fans of brothel settings have Otomate’s Hyakka Yakou and Hituzigumo’s Gyakuten Yoshiwara remake, Otoko Yuukaku to look forward to. Hyakka Yakou combines a Yoshiwara-like setting with the recently seemingly popular ayakashi theme, so perhaps ayakashi fans may find some worth in trying it out.

Newcomers on the otome world block, Primula, will be releasing the first of their four “episode” Taishou x Alice series; a game that combines fairytales, Alice in Wonderland and a bit of wafuu themes. Uta no Prince-sama fans, particularly of the Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ All Star, can get to enjoy its fandisc coming out this month, Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ All Star After Secret. Finally, fans can enjoy a few hours of fun with the fourth of honeybee and Denki Girl’s Style Photograph Journey series, ~Koi Suru Ryokou Niigata-hen & Hokkaido-hen~ while waiting for the highly anticipated second game of the Shinigami Kareshi series, Un:Birthday Song ~Ai wo Utau Shinigami~.

New releases:
~ Hyakka Yakou [PSV] [12-2-2015]
~ Taishou x Alice Episode I [PC] [20-2-2015]
~ Diabolik Lovers Dark Fate [PSV] [26-2-2015]

Otome Visual Novel Releases of January 2015

2015 will begin with six new releases, nothing strikes me as a “must-play”, but I think Kokuchou no Psychedelica sounds like the strongest title this month. That doesn’t mean the rest are bad-looking titles by any means. ROOT∞REXX will be released this month after being pushed back from December 2014. New company éstciel worked with Arcana Famiglia’s HuneX; releasing Kaleidoeve this month. As Kaleidoeve is the only PSP title this month as otome companies rush around to cash in on the un-piratable PSV, unless you happen to be a Satomi Hakkenden fan, that’s the only new release for your console!

Speaking of which, if you’re following the Satomi Hakkenden series, Murasamemaru no Ki will apparently be the third and final of the series. Satoi and honeybee fans can finally get their mitts on the first of the two Shinigami Kareshi PC games. Finally, for us “old” otome gamers, A’sRing’s second release, Orfleurs will be coming out. After playing the trial, I can say with confidence that if you’re looking for story with your porn this month, you may disappointed.

New releases:
~ Kaleidoeve [PSP, PSV] [22-1-2015]
~ ROOT∞REXX [PSV] [22-1-2015]
~ Satomi Hakkenden: Murasamemaru no Ki [PSP] [22-1-2015]
~ Kokuchou no Psychedelica [PSV] [29-1-2015]
~ Orfleurs [R18+] [PC] [30-1-2015]
~ Shinigami Kareshi Series: Re: Birthday Song ~Koi wo Utau Shinigami~ [PC] [30-1-2015]

Ports/Remakes/Re-releases:
~ Diabolik Lovers ~more, blood~ Limited V Edition [PSP  PSV] [Link] [15-1-2015]
