The surge of otome game news continues!

After last week’s cluster of otome announcements and then Idea Factory’s Charade Maniacs release date reveal, it was time for Aksys to take the stage today.

In a short “All Aksys 2023 Update” video, Aksys provided updates on several of their upcoming titles.

The otome games Radiant Tale and Norn9: Last Era both got release dates. Radiant Tale will be out on July 27, and Last Era on August 24. Yes, the upcoming months are becoming packed with games I’m interested in. Preorders for both are open now.

Jack Jeanne, which will be out on June 15, was also highlighted as they showed off its impressive Limited Editions.

Now, it wasn’t all otome news. They also showed Inescapable, which I’ve been interested in since its announcements, a fantasy farming game called Pretty Princess Magical Garden Island, and the dungeon crawler Mon-Yu, which now has the amazing full English title “Mon-Yu: Defeat Monsters and Gain Strong Weapons and Armor. You May Be Defeated, But Don’t Give Up. Become Stronger. I Believe There Will Be a Day When the Heroes Defeat the Devil King” that they impressively fit onto the box art without looking bad.

So while there were no new announcements, it was exciting to get release date news. I’m looking forward to the oncoming rush of games I want to play, even if my backlog trembles in fear.

Are you interested in any of the games from Aksys’s update?

  1. Is there some kind of award for longest video game title? I can’t believe that is actually the full title 😂

  2. Jack Jeanne seems the most interesting by far, with the limited edition, the game play and the art being created by the author of Tokyo Ghoul.

    Beyond the title, Mon-yu doesn’t seem to be anything stand out from the other first person dungeon crawler RPGs. I find it hard to get into those because the story feels weak, so there’s nothing to latch onto besides the repetitive gameplay.

    Pretty Princess Magical Garden Island looks and sounds like a fake game made for a movie or tv show when they can’t mention games from the real world. Especially the game cover art. It is nice to see games aimed at young girls making a comeback though. Hopefully more varied genres start releasing.
