I don’t usually do a “preview” post of games but hey it’s the beginning of the year and I figured this post could serve a reference/reminder of stuff to look forward to this year. All info taken from B’s Log release calendar. So anyway let’s get started:
- TOKYO ヤマノテ BOYS SWEET JELLY BEANS – TYB harem fandisk! But that’s not all! Apparently they will be releasing corresponding FDs in the summer to compliment this. Don’t expect too much except a bunch of 3P ends here.
- 官能昔話 ポータブル – Ever wish you were the heroine of a fairy tale? Well now you can be, you can be like 5 heroines at the same time.
- 恋愛番長2 MidnightLesson!!! – Fuck yea RenaiBancho 2, now you can get with all the fake banchos who surprised you in first game.
- VitaminX Detective B6 – In case you thought the Vitamin series ended with X to Z, REJET brings back the Baka 6 to go on a silly detective run around while getting cozy with Yuri.
- 12時の鐘とシンデレラ ～Halloween Wedding～ – Another Quinn Rose fairy tale game. I swear I’ll have a QR game marathon one of these days.
- 薄桜鬼 幕末無双録 – Otomate can’t stop milking Hakuoki so they got some fugly anime style art while you fight your way through all the crazy people. If this doesn’t interest you then perhaps the ENGLISH release of Hakuoki will instead.
- personA～オペラ座の怪人～ – Mirai’s Rapist of the Opera.
- ひとふた奇譚 – New label but the cast looks pretty good and it appears to be a strong heroine. I’m in!
- アムネシア レイター – Amnesia fandisk. Bring on the romance, PLEASE щ(ಥДಥщ)
- うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪Debut – The singing bishies are back and they bring their idiot senpais along for the ride.
- 逢魔時～怪談ロマンス～ – A Quinn Rose game that’s NOT a fairy tale! Hell is gonna freeze over.
- エルクローネのアトリエ ～Dear for Otomate～ – I never played the man version of this game but everyone’s been fangirling over the mans so maybe it’ll be worth it?
- 華鬼 ～夢のつづき～ – Doormats ahoy! I still have yet to play the first game but I’ll get to it before the FD comes out.
Other Spring 2012 Releases:
- キミカレ～新学期～ – Cell phone game turned PSP. Or was it a drama CD ?_?
- 恋戦隊LOVE&PEACE THE P.S.P. – Power rangers otome games are starting to gain ground. Apparently the mobile version of this is so awesome it won multiple 2011 otome game awards.
- スカーレッドライダーゼクスⅠ+ FD ポータブル – Scared Rider Zechs & its FD ported to PSP. Maybe I’ll play it now since it means I can bring it with me on the train. Another “spring” release.
- ときめきメモリアル Girl’s Side Premium ～3rd Story～ – I haven’t played 1 or 2 but the 3D effect creeps me the fuck out.
- 花御女（かごめ） – R-18 game that’s supposedly targetted for both men AND women? Dafuq. Maybe it’ll be like Tsubasa no Oka no hime. Official site won’t load for me all I have is info from their blog and twitter. All I’ve confirmed is the lead character is a HEROINE so I can only think of it being like Tsubasa Oka as I mentioned above.
- 雅恋 ～MIYAKO～ あわゆきのうたげ – Miyako FD yay! Please give Chicken-kun a happy ending route!!
- VAMPIRE SWEETIE – B’s Log didn’t mention this but the official site confirmed to push the game back to Spring 2012. I hope they end up going through with it honestly I like the cast a lot.
- ARMEN NOIR Portable – Ported to give everyone happy ends instead of shitty sad ends. Still, I won’t be replaying it, one trolling was enough for me.
- 蒼黒の楔 緋色の欠片3 明日への扉 – Hiiro 3 FD. Where’s my Hiiro 2 FD? ;A; Oh well as long as I get to have some college romance with Mahiron.
- Starry☆Sky～After Winter～ – Well gee it was only delayed by like 6 months! As long as Tsukiko gets to makeout with Oushiro I ain’t even mad!
- 十三支演義 ～偃月三国伝～ – Yusa Kouji voicing a furry. 😆 Yea I don’t know much about this except furries all around.
- BROTHERS CONFLICT Passion Pink – I thought this was supposed to come out in 2011; guess not. Oh well it’s the non rape version of Koisuru Oniisama.
- BROTHERS CONFLICT Brilliant Blue – If the brothers in Pink weren’t enough, you can get with some more of them.
- FRESH GINGER DISC – The first of the TYB single character route fandisks.
- 赤い砂堕ちる月 – I think this game is supposed to be R-18 but it’s not by Mirai, or Sugar Beans or Calamelia Torte so maybe it won’t be a rape triathlon.
- PURE RASPBERRY DISC – 2nd TYB single chara route fandisk.
- BLACK VANILLA DISC – Last installment of the TYB fandisk series.
Other 2012 Releases:
- アブナイ恋の捜査室 – That racist Gree using otome game company finally releasing a PSP port of one of their abunai series. I guess if it’s a success, they may port their other abunai games to PSP. Only time will tell.
- OZMAFIA!! – Mafia games are the hot thing now. Does anyone remember Jingi Naki Otome & Death Connection??
- Custom Drive – Customize your mans.
- 神さまと恋ゴコロ – Takuyo’s releasing a game that’s more like their other romance games instead of a text dump like Shinigami to Shoujo.
- 君がため、恋し乱れし月の華 – Ninja girl and historical bishies. No idea what else is going on but they plan to give her a voice. Not sure if this is R-18 or not. It might be.
- 三国恋戦記～オトメの兵法！～ – Sangoku Rensenki obv needs like 20 ports but I’m so not going to replay it. That war stuff sucked even if the romance was cute.
- 断罪のマリア la Campanella – What happened to the director’s cut Karin? I’m still holding out for that.
- トリック・オア・アリス – Loli/shota yandere ero version of Alice in Wonderland. In before the bro is voiced by Hino.
- バクダン★ハンダン – When they try to make American comics into an otome game. No thanks.
- unENDing Bloody Call – Gahh I want to see the new ends but lol no timeee to replay things!!
- 英国探偵ミステリア – Karin’s releasing a new game, better wait out for a PSP or Director’s cut version or something.
- 戦場のプリンセス ～The princess on a battlefield～ – Valkyria the Otome Game? 😆 Yea I don’t know but looks like Quinn Rose is running out of fairy tales.
- BLACK WOLVES SAGA – Call me when the happy non depressing PSP version is out.
- Tiny x Machinegun – Forgot to mention this. Mafia game that takes place in NYC, I’m in! Music is jazzin’.
So yea that pretty much concludes the 2012 preview. Obviously as new games are announced they will be slated releases later in the year but this bunch should keep us all occupied at least until the end of the summer. ヽ( ￣д￣;)ノ
