Featuring beautiful art direction and thoughtful, original character designs, Ghost Parade (November – PlayStation®4 system, Nintendo Switch™ and Steam) follows the adventures of Suri, a young girl who gets lost in a mysterious forest on her way home from school.

Developed by Lentera Nusantara Studio Corporation, Ghost Parade immerses players in a fully realized world based on Indonesian mythology and folklore.

Otome fans spoke and Aksys Games listened! Classic Code: Realize entries ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and ~Future Blessings~ are coming to the Nintendo Switch™ in 2020, followed by fan favorites Collar X Malice and Collar X Malice -Unlimited-. The Code: Realize games explore the story of Cardia and her adventures in a steampunk version of Victorian England, where she encounters a cast of intriguing gentlemen based on characters from history and literature. In the Collar X Malice titles, a dangerous shadow organization launches a campaign of fear and violence in the city of Shinjuku, pushing society to the brink of chaos. Players assume the role of a young police officer tasked with restoring order. In a city bound by malice, you are the only hope for salvation!
Aksys Games also debuted two brand-new interactive fiction (otome) releases, Piofiore (working title) and Cafe Enchante (Nintendo Switch™). In Cafe Enchante, a young girl inherits her grandfather’s eatery only to discover that none of the patrons are human. Piofiore follows the adventures of Lily, an orphan plunged into the center of a Mafia war in early twentieth century Italy.
Following on the success of last year’s critically acclaimed horror adventure Spirit Hunter: Death Mark, Spirit Hunter: NG (October – PS4™system, Nintendo Switch™, Steam and PS Vita digital download), follows a new cast of characters as they battle the terrors that lurk in Tokyo’s shadows. Spirit Hunter: NG, the second entry in the Spirit Hunter series, compels players to fight evil, make wise choices, and learn the truth behind a mysterious disappearance… before it’s too late. The newly created Spirit Hunter series, which includes Spirit Hunter: Death Mark (Volume I) and Spirit Hunter: NG (Volume II), will showcase new and unique interactive horror experiences.
