Hakuoki Festival & Cafe 2017

Hello, my dear readers! 💖 Pardon the lapse in posts… RL has been doing quite a number on me, and it’s caused me to take a step back and think about what needs to be done to move forward. But that’s not what I’m going to talk about today! I’m going to talk about the marvelous event that the wonderful folks at Idea Factory International prepared for otome and Hakuoki fans. And they did a fantastic job for their first time holding an event like this!

Let’s take a tour of what the event was like!

It’s time for Visual Novel May!

In an attempt to get more people to play through their backlog of games, the lovely Anne from Chic-Pixel has organized a year-long event composed of different game genres themes each month called the Community Game-Along. Each month a new theme starts, and players can join in playing titles of that particular genre. It’s a really neat concept that not only allows you to get through your huge backlog of games, but encourages people to talk about their progress on Twitter using the various hashtags per theme! I’ve decided to join in this month, since it’s Visual Novel May and I definitely have a lot of visual novel games that I hadn’t really played.

Let’s take a closer look at what I’ll be playing!

Gift’s Early Summer Campaign!

Gift tweeted early yesterday that they will be holding an online sale event called the Early Summer Campain. The event will be open online from May 15th to May 25th, where people will be able to purchase select exclusive goods from Gift. If you spend over 10,000 yen, shipping will be free, which is pretty nice. This event introduces some new items that haven’t been available before along with some re-releases, so if you’re a fan of Gift’s plushies, it’s worth it to order some of their webshop-exclusive plushies!

There are plenty of items to choose from, but these are the ones I think are worth noting!

Otomate’s Hakuoki Finally on Mobile Devices!

Last week, Gloczus finally released Otomate’s Hakuoki on mobile devices for the US and Canada! Fans all over rejoiced after having waited for a long time for a more portable way to play Hakuoki without having the actual gaming consoles the games were originally released on. This particular release comes with an exclusive unlockable tea ceremony chapter (already unlocked in the Premium Edition) that fans that have already played the game before may want to play through, since what happens in that chapter is pretty cute!

Let’s take a closer look at the mobile release of Hakuoki!
