Ah yes, August the month where games are delayed to the next month and delayed games from the past come to release. PsychicEmotion and that Marie Antoinette game have been delayed, but luckily previously delayed games fill in their spots so this month isn’t too empty.
First of all, sorry for being inactive last month. Last Enstar event kept me pretty busy and I was figuring out what to do with my magazine posts and in the end I didn’t do much. I’m sorry 😆 Good news is I’ve made progress playing Kenka Banchou Otome, nice. Bad news (kinda bad) I’m back to studying so maybe less working on this blog, who knows.
Anyway, Tsumi Kui had been delayed last month, to my surprise. So hopefully this will be the last delay because I’d like to see this release (tho take your time). Surprisingly Blackish House Side A was delayed and I didn’t even know. It was supposed to release back in June, I think, so I was surprised to see it as August’s lineup. Tho I’m still not gonna buy it, even for one route. CollarxMalice was delayed to August too, hopefully it was to iron out some bugs and stuff. Better to have a well performing game than a bug filled game. Tho who knows why it was delayed.
As for the other new games, “Meiji Tokyo Renka” seems to be getting a PS Vita port (tho for some reason I had a feeling it was already available on the vita lol), considering it was well received in Dengeki Girl’s Style 2015 Otome Award polls I’m guessing ppl will appreciate it in higher resolution on the Vita, now that the PSP is dead. I’m looking forward to the release of Beast and Princess because I never had the chance to play the first games of the series, plus Wataru Hatano is voicing a kind hearted bear guy so ya sold me there.
As for eXtend’s new and first game, I’ll have to hold out on it for now. I like the scenario and the characters seem interesting tho I have a huge backlog and I’m more interested in their other game they have in development, “Side Kicks!“. I don’t know much so far but the theme and the way cutscenes are shown in the trailer really get me pumped up. I’m sorry but I’m a sucker for 3D models especially when their textures look like water paint (?), I’m not sure what it is but I’ve been seeing that style a lot lately and it speaks to me on an aesthetic level lol. Seems like they’re going for a hero theme and it takes place in California, America in a fictional town called “Sakrada” (tho pronounced Sakurada), which makes me think of Big Hero 6’s “San Fransokyo”.
If only the CGs were animated… That’s my dream, to have otome games with animated CGs because I’ve seen some galge do that so why not have otome games go down that route. Tho I really hope they have 3D mini-cutscenes like with Scared Rider Xechs and their short 2D animated cutscenes. Either way I’m keeping an eye on it. Hopefully it’ll be gr8.
Thats my monthly round up. Next month seems to have more games that I have my eyes on, esp parade‘s new game “Room No.9” [Link NSFW] (parade being the company who brought us No, Thank You!!!) which looks interesting but twisted and kinda angsty. Will I buy it? Hmmm, we’ll see.
Thanks for reading!
