We are three months into the year of 2017 and April is almost here! Which means… OTOME! Handsome men! TONS OF KABADON! And scenes that will make us all go ‘hot damn’ and ‘awwwwww’. I’ve at least said both of those phrases many times whilst playing an otoge title! (Coooome on, you’ve said it too!)
2017 really is the year of the otome and thanks to my sisters on LINE, along with otome slueth @, and social media! I’ve been keeping up with all the upcoming otome titles that are soon to release!
And boy… There are A LOT!
So much otoge! Don’t get me wrong! I want dozens more, but look at what we have coming out now! And not just by the usual localizers, nope, indie devs are coming out with quality otome titles for us in the west as well! It’s just so amazing! We’ve gone from single digit releases to, NOW, double digit releases! That’s AWESOME!
This year, not only are titles being released on the PS VITA, but the PC as well. Lots of titles on the PC, now that I count them in my head. And I want to quickly thank every one of you who pitches in their money to buy localized otome titles! I’m serious! Thank you! By not pirating these titles, you are telling the devs and the localization companies we want MORE! And are willing to spend our cash to get MORE!
PLZ DO NOT PIRATE LOCALIZED OTOME TITLES ON THE PC! do not do it! You’re probably thinking, ‘well, it won’t hurt in the long run’. IT DOES! Save up your money! Wait for a birthday, a holiday, or start mowing lawns if you don’t have a job! But if you TRULY love otome and want more, PLZ DO NOT PIRATE THESE GAMES.
Well, with that out of the way, I am here to announce some of those PC/Vita titles coming out soon! Some of these titles do not have exact dates, so a TBA will be next to their description as the list continues. I won’t be listing all the otoge titles coming soon, but if you want to know of more, you can follow MYSELF or @Kalin_Nyanya on twitter.
