Release Dates For Previously Announced Otome Games
Lover Pretend (NSW)
Release Date: Fall 2022
Chiyuki lives alone, spending all her time studying for university and doing part-time work. She has two dreams in life: One is to become a scriptwriter—also a dream of her late mother—and the other is to find her father whom she never met. From leftover clues, it seems her mother was writing a drama script before she was born. Chiyuki lands a job as a scriptwriter assistant for a film that the sons of the drama staff are making. She searches for information while working her new job, but in a twist of events ends up cast in the role of their love interest…? This is a pretend love role, not true love. Can Chiyuki create a script about fake lovers, while not knowing anything about falling in love herself?
Paradigm Paradox (NSW)
Release Date: Fall 2022
The year is 25XX, a world where mankind lives only in isolated colonies. The protagonist, a student at the academy, is bored with the drudgery of everyday life, a day-to-day existence untouched by gossip about “Heroes” and “Vermin,” the enemy of mankind, and unnoticed by the good-looking guys at the academy. One night she slips out of the dormitory and encounters colony-invading Vermin, landing herself in danger! Four girls appear suddenly and repel the Vermin with miraculous abilities. The protagonist decides to work as a Hero, leading a busy life as both a student and champion of justice. But why is it that she has more opportunities to talk to the good-looking guys everyone is gossiping about…? What is their (the girls’ / guys’) secret…? And what is the enemy’s true identity…?

Seasons pass—to year 11 of the Kyoho era. A girl in a village far from Edo has the power to see a “black thread” before every catastrophe and the panicked villagers drove her away into the snowy mountains.
