Because I decided to make this a yearly thing for the hell of it. This is a random preview of stuff coming out, stuff I plan to get and just my random blabbering and opinion on upcoming releases. Please take it all with a grain of salt 😉
As usual I’m using Cool B’s release list here. Stuff I plan to order/have ordered has a shopping cart icon and is in red. Oh I’ve also removed BL games from the list since I don’t play those anyway.
1/15 DIABOLIK LOVERS MORE,BLOOD LIMITED V EDITION – Already played the terrible PSP version no thx.
1/22 カレイドイヴ – Had originally pre-ordered this but then changed my mind last minute due to FF14 patch release day being close. Looking at the site now, the system page is still listed as “coming soon”. Wow you’d think 2 weeks before release date they’d have something. Whew dodged a landmine there.
1/22 里見八犬伝 村雨丸之記 – Some quin rose game I don’t care about.
1/22 ROOT∞REXX – Had originally interest in this until they showed the nauseating music game. There can only be ONE and that ONE will always be Project Diva.
1/29 黒蝶のサイケデリカ – Stinks of Shiratsuyu no Kai except instead of ghosts it has guns and the heroine has a voice. Will wait for reviews before considering to pick up.
1/30 オルフレール – You ain’t foolin’ anybody Tiaramode 😆
1/30 Re:BIRTHDAY SONG〜恋を唄う死神〜 – Preordered the Stellaworth set. This shit better be the most amazing game ever or I’m done with you forever moneybee.
2/12 百華夜光 – No more old timey prostitution games please.
2/19 男遊郭 – – No more old timey prostitution games please.
2/19 薄桜鬼 随想録 面影げ花 – Port #32535325
2/20 大正×対称アリス – It does look nice but I’m very distrustful of segmented games now.
2/26 うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪All Star After Secret – I’ll just wait for the Vita port when Broccoli gets it together someday.
2/26 OZMAFIA!! -vivace- – Waiting for reviews to see if they removed THAT JINGLE (；ಠ益ಠ；)
2/26 金色のコルダ３ フルボイス Special - I don’t think I will ever play a KOEI game.
2/26 DIABOLIK LOVERS DARK FATE – No.
2/27 Photograph Journey 〜恋する旅行・新潟編＆北海道編〜 – Eww more segmented releases.
3/6 神足町人妖譚 〜迷イ子ノ章〜 澪（MIO）– Nice try Mio but no.
3/12 遙かなる時空の中で６ – More KOEI games I don’t play.
3/13 ヴァルプルガの詩 – Mixed feelings about this, feels like it has too many landmines that ruin a game for me. Will wait for reviews.
3/19 ノルン＋ノネット ラスト イーラ – Ordering at the speed of light.
3/26 剣が君 for V – Thanks to Hanasaku Manimani, I am staying the hell away from this.
3/26 宵夜森ノ姫 – It seemed ok until all the delays and the quality of the CGs made me lose faith in this.
3/27 Un:BIRTHDAY SONG〜愛を唄う死神〜 – Heavily depends if Re Birthday Song ends up good.
3/27 DYNAMIC CHORD feat.Liar-S – I read some reviews about the first DC game and turns out all the guys are manwhores?? And the heroine has to put up with their shit and basically be their personal relationship psychologist or something. NTR and cheating is a huge no-no for me so definitely not my cup of tea. Not sure if that’s how it will be for this game but this one does have the cast I am interested in so I’ll once again wait to see reviews before buying.
April – July:
4/9 華ヤカ哉、我ガ一族 モダンノスタルジィ – I never did take interest in the HanaIchi series and probably never will.
4/23 新装版 クリムゾン・エンパイア – I HAD SERIOUSLY thought about preordering this..until I saw the terrible reviews for Clover Alice remake. Wow really, sound buzzing problems? Do you even have Quality Control anymore? Also they changed artists mid production which has me a bit worried. Will wait for reviews on this but I am interested in the story & characters for sure.
4/23 明治東亰恋伽 トワヰライト・キス – I want to get this…but meh PSP…I haven’t touched my PSP in half a year. Kinda demotivated to buy games for it.
4/24 クローバー図書館の住人たち II – LOL. NOPE.
4/24 Photograph Journey 〜恋する旅行・静岡編＆長崎編〜 – Eww more segmented releases.
6/26 DYNAMIC CHORD feat.KYOHSO – Not particularly interested in the cast.
6/26 Photograph Journey 〜恋する旅行・香川編＆宮崎編〜 – Eww more segmented releases.
Games Without Release Dates Slated for 2015:
アブナイ恋の捜査室〜Eternal Happiness〜 – Reviews for the original PSP ports weren’t so great so not sure if there’s a point to bother with the Vita one.
絶対階級学園 〜Eden with roses and phantasm〜 – Lack of any updates for this and slow development has kinda made me lose interest.
プリンス・オブ・ストライド – I had interest in this..for the last 3 years that it’s been announced but it keeps getting pushed back. At this point I have the fear it’ll be like Brothers Conflict and released with plaguing development issues hanging off its side.
I DOLL U – I hope this is like Ninkoi but with idols instead of Ninjas.
アンジェリーク ルトゥール – KOEI game thing I ignore.
SA7 – Seeing how Buccaneers was kind of a flop I’m hesitant to preorder anything before seeing reviews from this company.
KLAP!! 〜Kind Love And Punish〜 – Come to meee GGE shota ლ(╹◡╹ლ)
CLOCK ZERO 〜終焉の一秒〜 ExTime – I generally don’t like to replay VNs since I know what happens and the novelty isn’t there but whatever it’s been like 5 years since I played CZ and I recall liking it a lot so why not?
源氏恋絵巻 – Another Quin Rose game I’m going to ignore.
忍び、恋うつつ Vita Port– Limited edition where?
12時の鐘とシンデレラ シンデレラシリーズトリプル全巻パック – Just a Vita port of the Cinderella games meh.
新装版 お菓子な島のピーターパン – I thought the original Peter Pan was fine as it is so no interest in the remake or port or whatever this is.
SWEET CLOWN 〜午前三時のオカシな道化師〜 – Very much interested in this game but need more info. Don’t want anymore abusive villager games or dull stat raising nun games.
スクール・ウォーズ 〜全巻パック 本編＆卒業戦線〜 – The original game was decent but the FD sucked so not really worth it for me.
華アワセ 唐紅／うつつ編 – Just more Hana Awase segments but I never took interest in that series anyway.
POSSESSION MAGENTA – Extremely interested in this!! Sarachi Yomi’s art and a colorful cast seem like something right up my alley!
吉原彼岸花 – I swear this game was on my 2014 post and still no updates on it. Well doesn’t matter since it’s another old timey prostitution game I’m avoiding like the plague.
レンドフルール – Well Kagero’s art is the main selling point here so I hope we see some updates for this soon. It’s been kinda quiet after its delay.
Vamwolf Cross† – Kinda interested in this but I need to see more information before deciding.
Games With No Release Dates period:
薄桜鬼 真改 – Someone tell Otomate to stop beating the dead horse already.
絶対迷宮 秘密のおやゆび姫 – Kinda interested since I liked Zettai Meikyuu Grimm but updates have been kinda scarce/slow.
Goes! – If you like female seiyuu voicing dudes I guess this is for you but I’m not particularly a fan of any of them.
Double Score〜Baby’s breath×Lily of the Valley〜 – Lol this whole franchise is dead after they fired almost the whole staff.
Double Score〜Lily×Gentian〜 – Lol this whole franchise is dead after they fired almost the whole staff.
Double Score〜Rose×Lotus〜 – Lol this whole franchise is dead after they fired almost the whole staff.
神々の悪戯 InFinite – ホモォ┌（┌ ^o^）┐？ Not sure if I wanna bother honestly lol. Not even for Loki!
神足町人妖譚 〜時廻リノ章〜 – Mio trying to make profit via segmented games with the same poor quality as their non segmented ones.
神足町人妖譚 〜鳥啼歌ノ章〜 – Mio trying to make profit via segmented games with the same poor quality as their non segmented ones.
So pretty much 7 games I’m interested in order period for 2015 with a few “wait for review/updates” here and there. Obviously I imagine they may announce a few things early in the year to release at the end of the year but this is it for now. 2015 will bring in the FFXIV expansion pack which will keep me busy for a while so I’m a bit glad my otome gaming list this year is small. What are you looking forward to in 2015?
