PS Vita’s life has come to an end. I am sad about that fact as it’s my favorite gaming platform ever since it replaced PSP. All of my favorite Visual Novels, especially otome games, are PS Vita releases.
To think, otome games have just been localized in the Western in recent years.
If you’re new in the otome gaming world and feels pretty bummed out that it lost one of its primary gaming platforms, fret not.
Companies like Intragames are porting VNs, most importantly otome games, to PC via Steam. For this post, I partnered with Intragames to bring you their latest release, 7’scarlet.
7’scarlet is a mystery otome game set in the far-flung country of Okunezato. The heroine Ichiko Hanamaki, visits the place to search for clues for her missing brother. As she delves deeper into the country, she uncovers the many mysteries and secrets of Okunezato and its residents.

One year after the disappearance of her brother, Ichiko got invited by her childhood friend, Hino, to travel to Okunezato where the members of Okunezato Kinki Club meet up. This club is formed through a website, bringing in people who are interested in the mysteries of Okunezato – the same town where Ichiko’s brother disappeared to. Days after their arrival, mysterious events keep on happening one after another.
