The Otome Armada might have taken a few months off but they'll be roaring back in 2022.

Aksys Games held their "All Aksys" stream event today, providing news of four new localizations from the Idea Factory-owned Otomate brand as well as updates on their previously announced lineup.

Existing Game Announcements

  • RICO: London, the first-person shooter followup to the 2019 release, will be the next title out of the gate from Aksys when it launches on September 2.
  • The following week will see the launch of otome title Olympia Soiree.
  • Undernauts: Labyrinth of Yomi, the dungeon crawling RPG from Experience (Strangers of Sword City) will release on October 28.
  • The Nippon Columbia-developed pet sim Pups and Purrs Animal Hospital will check into the Switch on November 11.
  • Dairoku: Agents of Sakuratami will end the year with more romance on December 2.
  • Variable Barricade, an anti-romance title where the apparent goal is to stay out of love, locked down a February 2022 window.
  • 2D fighter Blazing Strike showed a new trailer but did not narrow the release window from its current "2022".

New Localizations

  • Piofiore: Episodio 1926 is a follow-up to the original otome set in mid 1920s Italy, originally localized in October 2020. The sequel / fan cart was announced for a "summer 2022" release.
  • Paradigm Paradox, where the protagonist must serve as a "hero" and fight "vermin" in the 25th century, promised "details soon" on its localization but gave no release window.
  • Lover Pretend, in which a screenwriter is tasked with writing about something she is completely unfamiliar with, also announced "details soon".
  • The final announced title was the English-name-TBA Kimi wa Yukima ni Koinegau, a tale set during the shogunates of Japan.
