Meet Your Love Interests In PSP Otome Game Sweet Fuse

By Ishaan . August 1, 2013 . 12:10pm

Sweet Fuse, the upcoming otome game where you play as Keiji Inafune’s niece, has its first trailer. The game has you playing as Saki Inafune (you can rename her) and trying to survive a deadly theme park run by the evil Count Hogstein, and maybe finding love in the process. Watch the trailer below:



Sweet Fuse is slated for release on PSP on August 27th via PSN, with a retail release to follow soon after. You can read a post by the game’s localization editor, Ben Batemen, on the PlayStation Blog.

    If I didn’t think she was Chie before…

  • Audie Bakerson

    My thoughts on the game were still “WHY?”, then I saw the ESRB rating and had no words.

  • Vesperion

    This is gonna be as weird as that one playthrough i had with FeMc in Persona 3…..

  • Eileen Sy

    I’m still surprised that Aksys picked a not as well known otome game (I would have expected something that already has an anime). It’s a bit of a risky move, but I hope that Sweet Fuse does well so we get more otome games. I’ll be picking this up later.

    • Tanicia Marshall

      The reason that they chose this game is because of the various puzzles throughout the game aksys hoped that it would appeal to more people than a visual novel like Hakuoki.

  • Spider-Man

    I can see Tomoko from Watamote enjoying this.

  • harmonyworld

    Been waiting for thiiiis~~
    I hope I’m able to play it soon!
    I’m so ready!

  • Chaos_Knight

    Her last name is Inafune…

    Hmm… >___>

    • Brandonmkii

      Well, she is Keiji Inafune’s niece.

  • Tenshiken

    Hats off to aksys for releasing a game on UMD in 2013.

    • Bigabu Beaze

      They should of chose a better game like Fate/Extra CCC.

      • Will John

        I agreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

      • DyLaN

        Oh c’mon this one came out be4 F/E CCC. Do I need to remind you tht we got the original a year after the Jap release?

    • SupaPhly


      Atlus Couldn’t release Persona 2: EP psp version

      Capcom couldnt release Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies as a physical release.

      got to hand it to Aksys

      • mockturtle

        I’ll give you Capcom but Atlus said there was some kind of legal problem with Eternal Punishment. Not that that eases the pain, of course.

      • Junko Enoshima

        Don’t forget that they’re releasing a game about making curry in the US, when no one else would have picked it up.

  • celery

    Lol, people are hatin’ on YouTube, I’m not surprised though. XD

    Makoto Mikami’s handsome, I hope he’s like a secret character @[email protected]

  • WyattEpp

    “…you play as Keiji Inafune’s niece…”
    Wait. What.

    No, really, isn’t that…kind of creepy? Like, was she down with this? Is it a dare? A bribe?

    …A birthday present?

    • TaintedSeraph

      … She’s fictional. She isn’t based off his real niece.

    • natchu96

      I’ve seen anime written about the writer’s daugher’s DOG that takes itself somewhat seriously. This is already less absurd.

      But according to that other guy replying to you she’s fictional, so it makes sense.

  • TheExile285

    Come on Aksys, give us some VNs for males…

    • DyLaN

      There are more VN marketed for male in english over females one. So let the ladies have their fun lol.

      • Juli

        haha i laughed thank you for your support :-D lol

    • Lumi

      You want to be looking over at MangaGamers… They are PC only though, but there’s a… wider… variety of VNs.

  • Strain42

    Is this basically like the last UMD game being released? Are there any others coming out after this? I thought they stopped UMDs a while back.

    Also, I could be thinking of a different game, but this is the one where all the characters were designed by the same guy who does the Ace Attorney cast, yeah?

    • mockturtle

      Ace Attorney artist? This is the first I’m hearing of that. If that’s true, I’m even more hyped for this game!

      • Strain42

        Well like I said, I’m not positive, but I think it is. The dude with long hair holding the orb certainly looks like he’d fit perfectly in Phoenix’s courtroom lol

        • Lumi

          It is. And I think the soundtrack is by the same people too?

  • ShadowDivz

    Are there enough female gamers over seas to actually warrant brining a otome V/N? Im not saying it’s bad! It’s just… it’s hard enough to get VNs over here, i find it hard to believe one aimed at women is coming.

    • Eileen Sy

      Hakuouki already came over.

    • Hakuoki did well on the PSP, so they decided to release Hakuoki on the 3DS and Sweet Fuse. You can read more about the Otome Market here:

    • Just Tim

      Well, there’s always the boys’ love slash writers as a guaranteed market for this game.

      …wait, did I seriously say that?

    • SerendipityX

      I don’t know if anyone has noticed but the otoge scene has become vaguely popular. We’re even getting the animes now.

      • ShadowDivz

        Well color me surprised. And no i didn’t notice.

    • mockturtle

      I’m a guy and I have this preordered. No shame.

      • ShadowDivz

        I didn’t say you should be shamed. I was just wondering if the market is here.
        A change of pace is nice.

        • mockturtle

          I know, but I know some people buy a game as a sort of a guilty pleasure, or wouldn’t otherwise tell anyone about it. However, I am very much, unapologetically excited for this.

      • ShadowDivz

        I didn’t say you should be shamed. I was just wondering if the market is here.
        A change of pace is nice.

  • Lazulis

    Got Hakuoki for the PSP. Will get this too. Hopefully this game does well so other otoges can get released. So many great otoges, no Japanese knowledge…

  • Barrylocke89

    Team Ayumu lives on!!

  • new_tradition

    I’ve read some comments that mentioned most of the male options weren’t that good looking, but I’m honestly satisfied. Unless we get some yadares in there that are part of some bad route, I think I’ll have fun going through each character route :3

    • DyLaN

      Anything > DiaLovers/Amnesia CAGE route.

      • Lumi

        Is Diabolik Lovers bad? I haven’t tried it out yet. And I thought the cage in Amnesia was pretty fun. I honestly didn’t see that coming and was all “LOL WHAT ARE YOU SERIOUS”

        • DyLaN

          More accurately, the CAGE and one of the route summary for DiaLovers gives me a instant NOPE. Yandere creeps me out. I can see where you are coming frm though. Oh and I saw the CG of A:Crowds where Toma caged himself :)

          And we haven’t go into the other DiaLovers guys yet. There a reason why ppl call DiaLovers “Diabolik Wife beaters”. (I have no idea how their routes turn out though cuz I quit just at the prologue translation.) Might watch the anime or just reading ppl reaction to it.

          For starters, Dialovers includes Stockholm/Lima Syndrome and Oedipus complex.

          • Lumi

            Diabolik Wife beaters… Stockholm/Lima Syndrome and Oedipus complex… God. Actually, this motivates me to play it more, not for the romance, but for the ridiculously outrageous stuff in it and. I guess I’ve got weird tastes?

          • Lumi

            Anddddd… I played one route of Dialovers. Oh god, for a obligatory default male that was pretty bad, lacks the surprise factor and the hidden yandereness of the cage, with a lot more depressingness, mommy/daddy issues and outright abuse and rape. I’m gonna give this one up and wait for Sweet Fuse.

  • Rini11

    Looks interesting cant wait for this one and hopefully if it sells well we can see more Otome games being released and I hope to see Fate/Extra CCC localized as well:)Do it Aksys!

  • Hours

    I’m so pumped for this game. :)

  • mockturtle

    I love that this is what Inafune’s been up to since leaving Capcom, among other things.

  • piichan

    If I have to be honest. I’m only going to buy this to support Aksys’ on bringing in yet another otome game, but I wish they chose another title :( There are tons of other well-known and better looking otomes for the psp but who knows, the story might be fun.

  • DyLaN

    Damn, one of the guys almost trapped me.

  • Mordina

    Can’t wait :D Pre-ordered as soon as I could!

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Hmm… I can actually see myself liking maybe half of those guys.
    Then again, voice acting and personality will decide for sure.
    As long as a girl doesn’t voice the girly-looking one… we might be in business here.

  • Juli

    So many haters on youtube DEM HATERS MAKE ME LOL xD
    im glad to see that people here are more appreciative unlike those ungreatful little shit tubers, please excuse my language i’m just a little mad..okay alot mad xD
