For YEARS we’ve been anticipating any kind of otome game other than the mobile ones or Hakuouki. Hatoful Boyfriend could only keep me satisfied for so long.
And now, THIS is happening!
Amnesia comes out on Steam and Vita via PSN.
Code Realize comes out this October for the Vita. Physical copy
Norn9 this November also for Vita and physical.
I cannot even begin to express how happy, thankful and ecstatic I am to find we aren’t just getting 1 or 2 new otoges, but 3! If you want other future otome games to even be considered, you owe it to yourself to pick up a vita and buy them. I know it’s expensive, but you aren’t going to be able to convince them otherwise that there’s a market here.
Don’t ask to get a rom or iso or whatever it is you need to steal the game-that’s literally what you’re doing. Idc if you have a Japanese import copy, what you’re doing is hurting a potential market for English audiences. I don’t want to sound harsh. it’s fine if you’re making a translation of a game, I download them too. However, if there already is an English release and you’re trying to get a FREE copy of it, well, I hope you know that that’s wrong.
If you truly want more of these niche games, you need to support them. So far, this is 5 total otoges released for us by IFI or Aksys. And if we want more, we must support them. It’s expensive, I know, but compared to import prices, we really have a steal for the price we have to pay for an English localization.
I hope you enjoy your games and don’t forget to let IFI or Aksys know that you really appreciate what a risk they took to bring us these games! One that I hope no longer is a risk after we support them 😀
