First, we got an update on Ghost Parade. It will be released in November.
Featuring beautiful art direction and thoughtful, original character designs, Ghost Parade (November – PlayStation®4 system, Nintendo Switch™ and Steam) follows the adventures of Suri, a young girl who gets lost in a mysterious forest on her way home from school. What starts out as one girl’s quest to get home on time soon becomes a fight to save the forest and its myriad supernatural inhabitants from the true monster—man. Developed by Lentera Nusantara Studio Corporation, Ghost Parade immerses players in a fully realized world based on Indonesian mythology and folklore.
As for the retail release of Fishing Star World Tour, it’s coming in September!

Otome fans spoke and Aksys Games listened! Classic Code: Realize entries ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and ~Future Blessings~ are coming to the Nintendo Switch™ in 2020, followed by fan favorites Collar X Malice and Collar X Malice -Unlimited-.The Code: Realize games explore the story of Cardia and her adventures in a steampunk version of Victorian England, where she encounters a cast of intriguing gentlemen based on characters from history and literature. In the Collar X Malice titles, a dangerous shadow organization launches a campaign of fear and violence in the city of Shinjuku, pushing society to the brink of chaos. Players assume the role of a young police officer tasked with restoring order. In a city bound by malice, you are the only hope for salvation!
And the two new brand new titles are:
- Piofore (title TBC)
- Café Enchanté
Aksys Games also debuted two brand-new interactive fiction (otome) releases, Piofiore (working title) and Cafe Enchante (Nintendo Switch™). In Cafe Enchante, a young girl inherits her grandfather’s eatery only to discover that none of the patrons are human. Piofiore follows the adventures of Lily, an orphan plunged into the center of a Mafia war in early twentieth century Italy.
Finally, Aksys Games have announced a second game in the Spirit Hunter series, following Death Mark. That game is called Spirit Hunter: NG, and it will be released this October.
Following on the success of last year’s critically acclaimed horror adventure Spirit Hunter: Death Mark, Spirit Hunter: NG (October – PS4™system, Nintendo Switch™, Steam and PS Vita digital download), follows a new cast of characters as they battle the terrors that lurk in Tokyo’s shadows. Spirit Hunter: NG, the second entry in the Spirit Hunter series, compels players to fight evil, make wise choices, and learn the truth behind a mysterious disappearance… before it’s too late.
