Anime Expo 2011: Aksys Games Panel Highlights

Unlike last year, Aksys Games did not have many titles to reveal to us, fans, but that does not mean the games made us any less excited.

As their first announcement, Aksys Games confirmed that they will be bringing the Japanese only title Fate/Extra to America. At the Aksys Panel on the second day of Anime Expo, attendees were led to believe the game would feature full Japanese voice acting with English subtitles, but it was not confirmed.

Here is the trailer they used to introduce Fate/Extra:

During the Q&A session of the panel, they said that it was unlikely that the collectible figure will be bundled as it was on the Japanese version. However, this game will be also be available in a collector’s edition, with the contents to be revealed later this year.

The second game announced is an Otome game named Hakuoki: Demon Of The Fleeting Blossom. Otome games are those that are targeted towards female audiences. It will be one of the first Aksys games released in America.

Here is a clip from Hakuoki: Demon Of The Fleeting Blossom:

As you see from the clip, Hakuoki: Demon Of The Fleeting Blossom is basically a visual novel for girls. The player controls a girl with multiple love interests and each choice you make will lead you to one of the game’s multiple endings.

This is the first game of the series which evolved from a manga and anime series.

Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom will be released for PSP and PSN in the first quarter of 2012.
