That’s a lot of exciting stuff!
Bad Apple Wars
After being caught up in an accident on her first day of high school, the heroine finds herself instead at NEVAEH Academy – a school for those whose souls were left behind after death. It’s believed that students will be allowed to resume their lives upon graduation. The students of the Disciplinary Committee believe this is achieved by being a good student and following the rules, but the Delinquent Team Bad Apples believe it’s achieved by expulsion. As the two factions face off against each other, the heroine must decide who she wants to join.
Bad Apple Wars releases on September 29th in North America for on PS Vita.
Code: Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~
Bouquet of Rainbows is a combined package which brings both Guardian of Rebirth and the upcoming Future Blessings fandisc to PS4. It releases in Japan on August 24th, and will now be coming to North America too in 2018!
Okunezato is a town known for its legends and folklore, and is beginning to gain attention as a ‘mystery hot spot’. Protagonist Hanamaki Ichiko’s brother disappeared in Okunezato a year ago without a trace. When her childhood friend finds the Forbidden Okunezato Club that will be visiting the town during the summer holidays, he suggests they go along and look for clues about her brother’s disappearance. Every time they follow the footsteps of her missing brother, mysterious events occur, and the club soon get caught up in a series of strange incidents.
7’scarlet releases in North America in 2018 for PS Vita.
Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly
As she fell deeper and deeper into the darkness, she could hear rain and an animalistic cry. She woke up in a Western-style mansion, and was attacked by a terrible monster. As she ran away, she realised that not only did she not know where she was, but she didn’t even know who she was. Upon finding a group of men in the same situation as her, she is told they must participate in the Black Butterfly Hunt with their lives on the line, and try to collect Kaleidoscope Shards from the strange monsters.
Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly and its sequel, Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk, are due to release in North America in 2018 on PS Vita.
These titles look really interesting, with a lot of mystery and suspense, not to mention stunning artwork! 2018’s going to be another busy year for otome fans, with a lot of great games to look forward to!
