Keeping you updated on the latest in official and fan released versions of English otome games!
Here you'll find information about traditional visual novel style otome games, RPGs with otome elements, as well as GxG games made for a female audience.
"An otome game (乙女ゲーム, otome gēmu, literally meaning Maiden Game) is a video game that is targeted towards a female market, where one of the main goals, besides the plot goal, is to develop a romantic relationship between the female player character and one of several male, or occasionally female characters."
Ozmafia Possible Consideration of English Version
I emailed the debuting otome game company, Poni-Pachet. They are the ones who are releasing OZMAFIA. The gorgeous art is done by the same artist who did Diabolik Lovers and the storyline sounds really intriguing. I basically asked them about their opening english song and the possibilities of an english version of their amazing game. Here is what they said:
First of all, thank you for your mail.
I appreciate that you have interested in our work.
Theme song for “I love you more”.
Because I was a fan of the Article One, I adopted the song.
They are very good artists.
“Without you” is great song! http://youtu.be/FAJnK4zgWpo
We spent time in more than three years in order to create a “OZMAFIA!!”.
So I don’t know time or take much from now on…
If able to have the opportunity of making the English version I want to
However, is that the original version does not hit, even planning can not.
I am happy if you can pray for the success of our work.
Have a good day:)
We should all show them the support they deserve and hopefully ozmafia becomes a huge success! Also, feel free to email them as well here to help them realize that there IS a demand for otome games in english :) You can email them here: http://ponipa.com/mail-poni/index.html
The form says name, email, and your message.
I hope an english version of ozmafia becomes a reality <3
I also received a reply from them:
Thank you for your mail.
We did not imagine to be interested in people of the English-speaking.
So, I am simply just surprised.
We spent time in more than three years in order to create “OZMAFIA!!”.
So I don’t know time or take much from now on.
but if able to have the opportunity of making the English version„,
ofcause I want to challenge.
However, without the hit of the original version, we wouldn’t be able to
I am happy if you can pray for the success of our work;)
Have a good time!
It does seem if their game goes well in Japan, they will consider an English release! If OZMAFIA!! interests you, feel free to send Poni-Pachet an email here. Don’t forget to wish them luck, as this is their first game release!
(For those who didn’t see above regarding the Japanese email form: The first line says name, the second says email, and the third is where you type your message.)
Otome Hearts is a new, well-designed forum open to the otome community! The site was only opened a few days ago, but I’d definitely advise checking it out. They have several boards such as a VN discussion, anime and manga discussion, as well as a drama CD board and a general discussion. You can even post your own fanart or fanfiction related to otome games. Feel free to check it out here!

There’s currently a poll on Aksys Games Forums, which was posted by a user requesting otome games for future releases. On it are several popular games, such as Amnesia, Diabolik Lovers, Black Wolves Saga, and Glass Heart Princess. The staff of Aksys will see the poll, so if you’d like to go and vote, it should have some leverage towards any future localizing they choose to do!
You can find the poll here. I believe you will need an account there to vote, but it’ll only take a few minutes!

Here is a work in progress of the image you see on the main menu of the new game. This isn’t necessarily representative of the final image though. I tend to change things a lot. Although it’s still pretty far from being done, don’t hesitate to tell me what you think! (*´・ｖ・)
