These will be old news to some people, but… there’s an ENGLISH otome game out for NDS, albeit one aimed at younger children. There are screenshots and overview of Princess Debut which you can see for yourself. While it seems like a very simple game, I read somewhere that the dance movements were motion-captured from professional dancers. So at least, the dancing sequence itself should be quite interesting… I’m tempted to get it just for that reason alone (which probably is the wrong reason .__. )
Also, Hiiro no Kakera is getting ported to PSP (release date 18/12/2008). And apparently, the limited edition for this version will have better goodies than the limited edition for NDS… which is making me conflicted, somewhat. Should I get this one for the goodies, despite the fact that I can’t stand the main character…?
Also, seeing the port progression: PS2 -> NDS -> PSP. …I’m hoping it’d get ported to PC next. Because then I’d have a real reason to buy it (ie., because then I can play it with AGTH). …I guess the first Hiiro no Kakera was the best seller in the series, but still… porting the same game to different platforms… I wonder if they’d ever port the other game in the series. Probably after they ran out of platforms to port the first Hiiro to… <_< ?
There’s also Vampire Knight for NDS (release date sometime in December?), although I have no interest in this one… I read the first manga, and for some reason just can’t find enough love for the characters to throw my money away for the game .__. …but that “genre” that the website listed for the game (if I didn’t misread)… “Bloody Love” o__O ? Somehow that brought to mind a more morbid imagery, but I think that’s just me .__.
