On Halloween, a new English localization company aimed at otome releases called OTUSUN LAND was announced. The company itself is an extension of Otusun Club, a Japanese otome dev team whose game The Bell Chimes for Gold will be released in English.
Today is a good day for female gamers, because at their Anime Central panel Sekai Project announced the launch of a new otome brand called Maiden Voyage. Maiden Voyage will be dedicated to exclusively releasing otome and boy love games!
Nekopara Vol. 3 was set to release April 28. However, due to the hospitalization of Nekopara’s creator and illustrator Sayori, the date was pushed back to May 26.
Novectacle, the developer behind The House in Fata Morgana has recently announced on Twitter their plans to attend Comiket 92 and reveal a new secret project.
A Kickstarter campaign run by Sekai Project with the goal to create a 20 minute OVA based on the visual novel series NEKOPARA (which evolved from the doujinshi of illustrator Sayori) was surpassed within a day of launch. The NEKOPARA series is about a male protagonist named Kashou who decides to leave his home and open a bakery named La Soleil. He eventually finds out two catgirls from his household, Chocola and Vanilla, decided to come with him. His sister manages to track him down and along with the other four Minaduki household catgirls they all work together to run La Soleil. Along the way, events of a naughty nature transpire.
The doujin circle illuCalab is known most for their Touhou game, Gensou Skydrift, a racing game where Touhou characters literally ride each other like hoverboards.
However, the game I’ll talk about here is based on no previous intellectual property and is their own original game A Magical High School Girl.
With Touhou getting more attention in the west, it would only make sense a new company would localize another Touhou game. XSEED Games is making one of their newest releases Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity, previously known to English Touhou fans as Adventures of Scarlet Curiosity.
The doujin circle Kuro Irodoru Yomiji has their project Ne no Kami: The Two Princess Knights of Kyoto up for funding on IndieGoGo. The same circle has previously released the yuri game Sacrament of the Zodiac (NSFW).
