August 2009 Magazine News!

August 24th, 2009

Finally got the August magazines, and yay! New games to talk about! There are several, so let’s jump right in, shall we?

First, a totally new title from Takuyo for the PS2, called Kaerabatake de Tsukamaete. It’s set in the city of Tsukiyado, where some environmental problems have caused some of the residents (the heroine and the guys) to become were-frogs!!? For some reason B’s Log has a fan-servicey picture of the heroine, enough that I checked whether it was an otome game or not, but it is! Also interesting, it seems that there are 6 guys, 3 are shown in B’s Log and 3 in Girl’s Style. So far, only a couple of colour pics and line drawings of the characters, whose designs are by Hirose Azumi.

Uta no Prince-sama (PSP) is a new game from Broccoli and Nippon Ichi scheduled for 2010. The heroine attends an entertainment school, and the object of the game is to choose a potential idol to team up with as his songwriter, and work towards graduating, which means a successful audition. Character designs are by Kurahana Chinatsu, and we already know the OP is by Miyano Mamoru!

There’s also a maybe-not-otome game called Dear Girl Stories Hibiki (DS) from ASCII Media Works. It’s based on a comic of the same name, which originated from some radio shows that Ono Daisuke and Kamiya Hiroshi do together. The comic is about the seiyuu (or their characters?) helping out girls who write in with their love problems to a radio show. Of course “Hiro-C” and “Ono-D” will be in this, as well as Yusa Kouji as their boss Tera Ikemen, and several other characters with as yet unnamed seiyuu (who I guess might be the characters you can ‘get’). It already has a release date of December 17.

And lastly, a new Hoshi no Oujo title! The fifth title in the very-loosely connected R18 series (PC only of course!) from Mirai is tentatively called Hoshi no Oujo Oiran, is set in the Bakumatsu era, and is slated for 2010.

Of course, there are some really nice-looking cell-phone games as well, but I won’t torture myself or you by talking about them *sniff*…let’s focus on the bright side with all these new games to look forward to!
