2017 Overview – Upcoming Otome & BL Games

Saying goodbye to 2016 and its many kusoge, we are brought to a new year of prolly more kusoges. Just kidding.

Just like last year, I’ll try my best to list the upcoming games of 2017 in terms of Otome and BL, excluding mobile games because there’s like a billion of them ready to sneakily release without me knowing.

Let’s see what 2017 has in store for us, shall we?

This year I don’t have a lot of games that I want to play, well there’s not a lot of games announced that interest me 😆 After playing a few games with mediocre writing I’ve become a bit weary on my choices of games.

Also kinda surprising that D3P doesn’t have anything to announce for this year. I guess they gave up on their otome division in 2015 when they release all those kusoge, except for that one otome game that was better than the rest that released last year. You know the one. I guess they have better things to focus on, like this VR game that’s following suit with Summer Lesson, except rather than helping girls learn and study you’re just a landlord that chats with the girls that live in the apartment and maybe some スケベ stuff will happen. Seems like fun if you have a Playstation VR headset.

Speaking of VR, it’d be nice if a company would take a risk with otome games and make a VR game for girls. Then again, what kind of girl owns a PS4 or a VR headset amirite guys? Haha… Even if the future of VR gaming is here it’ll prolly take much longer for VR otome games to happen, hell it prolly won’t happen. But a girl can dream, like how I can dream for more games that can fanservice towards girls that aren’t in the form of visual novels lmao.

Anyway, my new years resolution is to post more often and try not to wait to post something (e.g waiting for another drama CD to come in a series so I can review it). So if I ever feel like posting something I would like to do it as soon as the thought pops into my mind, that’s my resolution for this year. Also maybe to draw more often, haha.

As for magazine posts that I started last year, I’ve decided to just do smaller posts of stuff that I’ve found interesting and would like to share. I think I might put it under the “otome watch” category or create a new segment all together. If anyone wants a single post dedicated to the pinups/posters in a magazine then I’ll do that too.

I hope I can continue to keep posting more this year! Hopefully I can finally get around to reviewing PS Vita games…

Thanks as always for reading!

  1. Another wonderful post Bunny! I’m really looking forward to a review sometime, I’m sure it will be very informative and packed with your own charming humour. Hopefully you can find an interesting game soon. Best of luck!

  2. Variable Barricade looks really nice, but then again it’s just a PV so we can’t tell just yet. I’ll probably only get that (if it still looks interesting once new info comes out) and RoroAli because I always fall for Alice games (● ˃̶͈̀ロ˂̶͈́)੭ꠥ⁾⁾ looking forward to your reviews, btw! Also I’ll miss your full magazine posts OTZ

    1. Variable Barricade looks promising but it all depends on the writing at the end of the day lol 😅 I’m sorry I won’t be doing full magazine posts, I’ll try my best to create a replacement for it that will be just as effective

      Like

  3. Alright kinda confused. So in Kamigami Infinite, there was an R18 cg but this was on the vita. I thought Vita games couldn’t have that kind of stuff. With A’s Ring porting their game to the vita, are they going to just ditch the R18 cgs?

    D3P is slowly sinking rofl and I hate to be a negative girl but I’m not looking forward to any of poni-patchet’s stuff. Ozmafia! left a bitter after taste.

    Furure smells like rapey shit. Kamisama nante was cute until the tagline….like srsly?! Song of Heiligenstadt looks like my kind of stuff. Sincerely hoping it’s good. Excited for most of the FDs except DL and Nil.

    So much ninja rofl.

    1. It wasn’t technically an R18 CG because her boobs weren’t out, only her bra, so it was barely able to get the Cero D rating without going into the Cero X zone. With most R18 ports they usually get rid of any explicit sexual stuff like CGs and replace it with tamed stuff like furiously hugging one another or kissing. Sometimes you’d get implied sex scenes with an CG of the dude and/or heroine naked post sex, that’s as far as it goes like in Nil Admirari with all those post sex CGs lmaaaoo.
      I’m not looking forward to poni-patchet’s stuff either, even if it promises Satoi to draw for the second one.
      Song of Heiligenstadt is by a company who seemed to be not successful with their first vita game so some ppl are weary, so maybe keep that in mind. Then again I’m looking forward to their side kicks! game, hopefully it’ll be good.
