There have even been some big surprise announcements of Vita titles being revived on the Switch! Just recently, Norn9: Var Commons and Amnesia: Memories were revived on the Nintendo Switch. That alone gave many in the fandom hope that maybe other previously Vita exclusive otome games might see their own Switch ports in the near future!
Of course, a few have seen a revival on PC via Steam, like the Psychedelica series and 7’scarlet, but there are still a few that are in danger of being “lost” in the wake of the Vita’s absence. So here are some of the Vita exclusive otome games that I would love to see pop up again on the Switch (or even on PC).
It’s been a week since the Wholesome Direct 2023 showcase blessed us with almost 80 cozy indie games! Like last year I participated as one of the showcases content creator partners, co-streaming the event on my Twitch channel, BlerdyOtome.
There were so many amazing games shown during the presentation, but there were a few special gems that caught my eye! So, let’s take a look at some of the titles from Wholesome Direct 2023 that I’m most excited to play!
Are you looking for something spicy to read to make up for the lack of R18 otome localizations? I got you boo, with these steamy manga reads! Each of these manga titles bring on the heat between the sheets, so whatever you’re looking for you’ll be sure to find something fulfill your desires! So here are some manga recommendations for mature otome gamers!
The release of Lover Pretendis right around the corner and if you’re looking for a cute, lighthearted otome game, you are definitely going to want to give this a go! Aspiring scriptwriter, Chiyuki dreams of breaking into the industry and one day finding her father. When she lands a job as an assistant on the set of a major film she takes one step closer to realizing her personal and career aspirations. As she searches for information about her father a twist of fate has her crossing paths with four men who may have the answers she need. And through a twist of fate she finds herself entangled in a pretend relationship with one of them?! 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?
Lover Pretend is set to release on December 1, 2022. But, if you’re still on the fence about picking up the latest Aksys Games otome localization, I have five reasons I think you should totally play Lover Pretend!
We are two weeks out from the release of Otomate’s sci-fi otome game, Paradigm Paradox! I know it has pretty mixed views from otome gamers, but you have to admit it has a pretty interesting premise. The heroine, Yuuki is recruited to join a magical girl superhero group and fight against monsters called Vectors. Only, her cute teammates are actually the school hotties?! Kind of a what if I could date the Sailor Stars situation.
Thanks to our friends at Aksys Games I was able to play Paradigm Paradox and there is a lot to love about the game. So, for those of you still on the fence, here are 5 reasons I think Paradigm Paradox is worth picking up on October 27th!
Variety is the spice of life, and in otome games we literally have our fill of hotties to choose from! Whether your type is the cool aloof guy with the tragic back story, the shameless flirt, or the ever cheerful genki guy–there is literally someone for everyone in the wonderful ikemen filled world of otome. Everyone has their ideal love interest, and that got me thinking “what does your otome fave say about you?”
So, thought it’d be fun create a series of post looking at what your favorite love interests say about your tastes. Since the English release of Piofiore Episodio 1926 is right around the corner, lets take a trip back to Burlone and see what your fave Mafia bae has to say about you! Also, for a bit of fun, if you’re curious about who your Piofiore bae is, I created a fun quiz: What does your Piofiore fave say about you?
It’s no secret that I am a lover of boys love media and on this sacred day, I wanted to spotlight some of the boys love visual novels you absolutely need to play. So if you consider yourself a fujoshi, fudanshi, or fujin, you do not want to miss out on these visual novels!
It’s tough wooing otome boys and sometimes a heroine just needs someone cute and fluffy to cuddle—that’s where cute otome sidekicks come in! They may not always add much to the plot, but these adorable animal companions add a dose of cuteness to our lives every time they’re on screen.
Just about every otome game has it’s own cute animal buddy, so today I’m spotlighting some of the most precious little beans~
If you’ve been following my socials, you already know that after gaming my biggest obsession is manga, specifically BL manga. My Instagram is pretty much just pictures of all the manga I buy, and at last count I own over 550 volumes of manga, with about half of them being boys love titles. So I figured, I should make use of my obsession by curating a list of BL manga titles I think you should be reading!
All of these titles are available in English, either digitally or in print–no non-licensed titles–and are among some of my favorites.
Hey Blerdy Tribe, it’s another wonderful otome release day! This time around we are celebrating the release of 2022’s most anticipated otome game, Variable Barricade! Wealthy heiress, Hibari Tojo absolutely does not want to get married. But, fate has other plans for her when her eccentric grandfather saddles her with four handsome (and problematic) suitor. Her beaus include, a walking debt generator, a suspected gambling addict, a kept-man, and a man alleged to have participated in marriage fraud…one has to wonder what her grandfather is thinking?!
As her suitors try to win her hand by any means necessary, Hibari endures endless everyday trials and temptations. Despite their shady pasts, the more time she spends with them, the more she wonders if there is more to these men than meets the eye…
This is one of the most fun games of the year and if you’re still on the fence about picking up a copy of the game for yourself, here are five reasons you should play Variable Barricade!
