It looks as though later this year Idea Factory will be porting the first pair of what looks like a long string of classic “Otome” games to the PlayStation Vita in Japan. The first two titles to see their way on to Sony’s portable will be Amnesia V Edition (orig. Amneisa on PSP) and Hakuoki: Mirror Blossom Record (orig. Hakuoki on PSP).
Otome games typically utilize some form of social-relationship building mechanic outside of the main goal of the game. They have been described by some as “a video game that is targeted towards a female market” but in actuality gender is insignificant to the enjoyment of the game.
Both Amnesia V and Hakuoki: Mirror Blossom Record are set for release on December 19 2013 in Japan.
Here is an early look at the intro sequences for both games:
