Woot, second month of 2019 here we come.
January was a bit busy for me, tried to figure out what I wanted to do this year but failed lol. Been out practice driving and still scared about hitting anything. Finished both Bayonetta games, still haven’t finished Jakou no Lyla or caught up with Toraware no Palm Refrain (I’m sorry).
Hopefully I can power through Jakou no Lyla Vol.1 this month before my copy of Vol.2 comes. May have to power through Toraware no Palm Refrain too, before the final episode comes. Today I might be busy as Readyyy releases on this very day, so maybe I can squeeze it in there somewhere. I promise this month I’ll get around writing a review for Toraware no Palm Refrain prologue + episode 1. Been meaning to doing it for a while now.
Anyway, hopefully I can do a lot this month. Now onto me summarising this month’s releases to the best of my ability.
Kiniro no Corda Octave is a multi-platform release on the PS Vita, the Nintendo Switch and on PC via Steam. Might be the first time in otoge history for a game to release simultaneously on three different platforms (though I’m not well-versed in otoge history so don’t take my word for it). Octave is a bit of a spin-off game for the Kiniro no Corda series, similarly to the Utapri spin-off games “Uta no Prince-sama Music” series. In Octave there are rhythm mini-games and two “routes”/stories, one route focuses on the cast of Kiniro no Corda 2 and the other route focuses on the cast of Kiniro no Corda 3.
Jakou no Lyla ~Allure of Musk~ Vol.3 Arabian Nights is a PC game, the third and final volume of the Jakou no Lyla series of games. It focuses on the king of Shanasa (a fictional Arabian kingdom) and the heroine’s “adopted little brother” who doesn’t wanna be seen as a little brother. The heroine acts as a spy, her target being the king of Shanasa as she disguises herself as his would-be fiancee. The three of them (including the heroine) can be involved in a love triangle. The trial version of this volume can be found here.
Gekidan Prince is a PC game made by the company who brought us Gakuen Handsome. Instead of a parody BL game, Gekidan Prince is a parody(?) otome game voiced by a handful of Utaite (singers who cover vocaloid songs). It’s about stage actors(?) and you act as the heroine who gets involved in the theatre company due to circumstances. There is already a trial version up on their website.
Yunohana SpRING! ~Mellow Times~ for Nintendo Switch is a port of two games into one Nintendo Switch cartridge. The game includes the original Yunohana SpRING! game plus its fandisc Yunohana SpRING! Cherishing Time that includes a new character route.
That’s about it for this month. I’ll for sure buy Jakou no Lyla Vol.3 limited edition to complete the set 😂 But I won’t get anything else this month. Hopefully I can get around to playing the trial version of Gekidan Prince to see what that’s about.
Thanks for reading!
