Hey Blerdy Tribe, just a quick post this time–the end of the year is almost here! We got a ton of otome game localizations this year and I want get your opinions on the top otome game localizations of 2021! I created this google form where you can cast your vote: https://forms.gle/YzvuQJ115xPnADs38
So, for this vote, I’m looking specifically at otome games that were localized in 2021 for PC and the Switch (there are way too many moble games)–I’ll do something different for indie games. I’m also restricting this list to official localizations, so no fan translations or patches.
I’ll take a final tally on December 26th 2021, so be sure to get your responses in by then! Also, please feel free to share this with others so I can get a good number of community feedback! Thank you!
Hey Hey Blerdy Tribe! These last few months have been kind of crazy on my end, but in a good way! I’ve been getting my Twitch channel off the ground and I recently started a Discord server to connect with folks away from this site and Twitch–which means content here on Blerdy Otome has been kinda sporadic. I’m slowly finding a good rhythm for everything so I should be back on track next week-ish.
But, today I wanted to share some exciting news with you all! If you follow my socials you probably already know, but around the end of August I found out I was nominated for one of the*GameHERs Awards.

Hey Blerdy Tribe, so I’m kinda sorta on a My Hero Academia binge and I’m so hyped up on all the Plus Ultra vibes that I haven’t actually played any games. So, I’m gonna take the rest of the week to just wrap myself in the warm embrace of anime and my ever growing TBR!

Y’all more otome news!! Aksys Games confirmed that they are releasing not one, three new otome game localizations for the Nintendo Switch in 2021!! As if we needed another reason for 2021 to hurry up and get here…Olympia Soiree, Dairoku: Ayakashimori, and Variable Barricade are all making their way to the west next year!
I am super excited, especially for Variable Barricade—which if you’ll remember from Twitter was on my otome localization wishlist~
Because I know you guys are just as excited as I am, here is a brief overview of the three upcoming releases:
Initial Release: April 16, 2020 (Japan) – Nintendo Switch
With her entire clan wiped out years ago, Olympia has been isolated for most of her life. Now she lives as the only person on Tenguu Island who can perform the ritual that restores light to a world shrouded in darkness. The heads of each Primary district—Red, Blue, and Yellow—lead a society governed by the island’s rigid class structure. As Olympia travels between the districts, she discovers their wonders and their weaknesses, as well as an entire underground community of shunned individuals whom she becomes determined to help. If she can find the person destined to be her soulmate, she will finally be able to open her heart and reveal her true name, continue her bloodline, and save the world before it is destroyed.
One of the last of her clan, Olympia seeks to perform a ritual to return light to a darkened world. Struggling within this society’s strict class system, she must find a partner to help her bring unity to the land.
English Language Release Date: September 9, 2021
