I don’t have a Switch but I’m so happy that they’re announcing more and more otomes games 😀
Yes!! Otome gamers are getting fed! Hopefully a switch is in the cards for you soon (or nintendo does a surprise sale)
So exciting~ (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤
You are so /fast/, gosh! I was lurking in the panel when the announcements were made, and there you are with a fully illustrated and sourced article not an hour after. All the props for your speed and dedication. >;) It’s also super heartwarming to see Aksys acknowedging the otome audience to that extent!
What about you, are you excited for Tengoku Struggle? Any particular titles you’re especially looking forward to in the 2023-24 lineup? 🙂
Thank you🥰 I was typing as fast as my fingers could go as they were streaming lol! I be tryin’ to get my stuff out as soon as I can (I took a longer lunch break today lol).
YES! Aksys has really been doing a lot to make otome gamers happy, with their streams and their content on their socials. They’ve really been taking care of us these past few years.
Oh YES! Tengoku Struggle IS HIGH on my excitement list, I was just talking with a friend about it yesterday. Also Jack Jeanne, I’m terrible at rhythm games, but I love the art and the premise so I will definitely be on board.
Also, I am so happy Norn9 is getting an updated localization. I really liked it on vita and it’s cool that new fans will get a chance to play it on Switch with the FD!
What about you? What are some games that you are looking forward to?
Thank you for your service! \o/
I’ve been pining for Virche since the JP release – my love for angst and despair may be a tad bit disproportionate, and I can’t wait to get my heart ripped. Plus, Yomi’s art. <3
Aside from that, the games I'm looking forward to the most are the same as yours, I think! As wonky as it is I'm really fond of Norn9 and the fandisk being announced had me ecstatic. And I wasn't especially interestested in JackJeanne at first, but the more I'm hearing about it, the more chuffed I get.
… We are truly getting spoiled lately! Between this all-star lineup by Aksys, Iffy gifting us Later x Crowd, and older titles I'd always been curious about getting localized out of the blue (ChouDoku, Koezaru wa Akai Hana…) I personally feel truly grateful. Hopefully the teams involved can take their time and deliver quality without getting pressured!
(For right now I've been really anticipating playing Paradigm Paradox, mixed reviews notwitstanding, so I was pretty happy reading your post about it. 🙂 )
