AKSYS

Abla, mendil alır mısın? Diyen o minik sese karşı adımlarımı durdurdum öğle vakti. Başı öne eğikti, boyunun hizasına çöktüm. Yanımda da hiç param yoktu aksi gibi. Ama iki çikolatam vardı. Çikolata versem olmaz mı, dedim. Olmaz, dedi. Mendilin sende kalsın başkasına satarsın, çikolatayı al sadece, diye ısrar ettim. Olmazlığını yineledi hüzünlü sesiyle. O an ölmek istedim ben, magmaya erişen içim kül gibi oldu. Siz insanlar, bir çocuğu kendisine uzatılan çikolatayı reddedecek kadar çok üzmüşsünüz. Gözlerimin içine bakamayacak kadar, korkutup eğdirmişsiniz başını. Altı yaşındaki bir çocuğu, göğe küstürmüşsünüz lan siz. Sadece tek bir bakışı değdi gözlerime, delip geçti organlarımı. Ürkek ve üzgün. Dokunsam ağlayacaktı sanki. Omuzları yere yakın, bitkin. Hasta gibiydi yüzü. Siz o çocuğun umutlarını ve hayallerini almışsınız elinden; ruhunu katletmişsiniz. Bu insansızlığı ömrüm boyunca affetmeyeceğim. Ölsem unutmam ben, o bakışı.

Zero Escape 3 will be called Zero Time Dilemma ⊟ 

The follow-up to Virtue’s Last Reward and Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors will be called Zero Time Dilemma when it hits 3DS and Vita next summer (preorder here)! Here’s a better version of the game’s art we previously posted:

And here’s a fresh blurb Aksys put out about the game too:

“Choice is your only method of salvation and your only means of escape. How much of your humanity will you sacrifice to earn your freedom? As a new age of ruin looms large on the horizon, you must make impossible decisions and weather unimaginable consequences as you straddle the line between absolution and damnation. Plan your escape.”

Support Otome Games in America (The Burning Question)

When a fan wondered why Aksys didn’t comment on any of the Otome game suggestions, June an employee at Aksys’ Games had this to say,

“Popularity isn’t the only determining factor when we pick games. Cost, story, content, legal issues, availability of editors, time frames, etc… There are a lot of steps and a lot of reasons behind our choices. Due to NDAs we can’t talk about anything until it’s officially confirmed; we can’t even deny. I know silence sucks, but legally we have to stay silent.”(x)

“The more (number wise, not quantity wise) people tell us what they like, the better we can gauge interest. The US market needs to tell us what they like!”(x)

Do you want Aksys to localize more Otome games? You can help by posting suggestions and answering a few questions on their forum.

What would you like to see in an Otome game?

Here’s a few questions that June asked:

  • Would you buy an otome if it was digital release only?
  • Did you buy any of the Hakuoki games or Sweet Fuse? What was your reason for buying them (initially, not after you played it)? Did the art draw you? The story? The devs/writers/artists/voice actors? Word of mouth?
  • How did you hear about the otome you’re interested in? Is it only through anime? Do you follow the Japanese otome market? Do you watch for news from the voice actors?
  • How much do you know about the otome you’re interested in? Do you read summaries, or look at PVs, or their websites?

Friendly reminder: DO NOT PIRATE OTOME GAMES. WE WILL NOT GET MORE OFFICIAL LOCALIZATION’S BY PIRATING THEM. AT LEAST THE ONES ALREADY OFFICIALLY TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH. PLEASE SUPPORT THE COMPANIES THAT ARE MAKING AN EFFORT TO INTRODUCE OTOME GAMES IN OTHER COUNTRIES. THANK YOU. Continue scrolling away.

Zero Time Dilemma’s trailer is here! ⊟ 

And it’s looking wild/bloody af! Kotaku has additional details:

“The narrative trick is that every 90 minutes, a drug is injected from the watches everyone’s wearing that causes them to wake up and lose all their memories. The story can be played out of chronological order thanks to this mechanic, so you start from a ‘floating fragment’ screen that shows you the various scenes in the story.”

Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma releases for 3DS and PS Vita on June 28.

Norn9: Var Commons Coming to PS Vita This Fall

“As a title from Idea Factory, the same company that brought you the acclaimed Hakuoki series, Norn9: Var Commons is definitely worth waiting for. Norn9: Var Commons will be available in the fall, but in the meantime, I’ll give you a little sneak peek.

While on a school field trip, child prodigy Sorata Suzuhara wanders off after hearing a mysterious song and blacks out. When he comes to, he finds himself in unfamiliar place, and soon encounters a girl who informs him that he’s currently in turn of the century Japan.

In order to help him get home, Sorata follows her to a ship that she’s waiting for but when it appears it is not a wooden sailing ship, but a round aircraft that flies using technology that is beyond Sorata’s imagination. Even stranger, he discovers that the other 12 passengers - 3 young women and 9 men - are all supposedly espers with special powers, and are on some kind of journey at the behest of a multinational entity only known as The World.”
