Two more Idea Factory Otomate visual novels localizations for the PlayStation Vita were announced at Aksys’ Anime Expo 2016 panel. The company will be bringing Collar x Malice and Period Cube to North America in 2017.
Collar x Malice is set in an alternate reality where an X-Day Incident hit Shinjuku, Japan. Players follow a woman who’s a police officer attempting to patrol and bring order to the area. One night, she’s attacked and has a collar filled with poison placed around her neck. Five former cops are investigating the X-Day Incident and, after what’s happened to her, she finds herself caught up in their case.
Collar x Malice will be released on the PlayStation Vita in Japan on August 18, 2016.
Period Cube follows a young woman in search of her missing older brother. She knows he was playing the MMORPG Arcadia and decides to join alongside her friend Hiroya. Once there, she realizes that she’s trapped in Arcadia until she beats the game. Fortunately, she becomes the one wielder of the divine sword, which will allow her to do so. Along the way, she’ll meet people who do and don’t want her to put an end to things. (She’ll also fall in love, of course.)
Period Cube was originally released on the PlayStation Vita in Japan on May 19, 2016.
