Season’s Greetings from Aksys Games


Holiday Aksys

With 2014 fast approaching and the holidays in full swing, we, the humble dudes and dudettes that make up Aksys Games, would like to wish everyone a happy holidays and safe new year.

2013 has been a great year for us, and we have our ardent fans to thank. It’s because of you, who are willing to go the extra mile and experience new styles of gaming, that we continue to thrive. So, a big Aksys Games thanks across the Aksys Nation who have supported our endeavors and allowed us to buy the occasional “pat-on-the-back” office donuts. As we head into 2014, let’s take a look at what’s been going on, as well as what’s to come.

The year started off with a brawl (and a dash of “otome” here and there) with the release of Hakuoki: Warriors of the Shinsengumi, available for PSP and PS Vita. Playing as the six “romance” characters from the acclaimed visual novel Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom, players had the chance to live the story through their eyes and fight the good fight.

In the summer, we released Muramasa Rebirth, from acclaimed developer Vanillaware, for PS Vita. With stunning visuals and high-flying action, players were able to delve deep into mythological Japan as the possessed princess, Momohime, or the amnesiac ninja, Kisuke. More on that DLC that everyone’s been talking about a bit later!

Hakuoki: Warriors of the ShinsengumiMuramasa Rebirth

As part of our continued commitment to bring otome games to the west, we published Sweet Fuse: At Your Side for PSP — a fun, clever visual novel featuring famed game creator, Keiji Inafune. As Inafune’s niece, Saki, players join a group of bachelors trapped in a life-or-death game to save her uncle’s theme park from the evil Count Hogstein. And maybe, just maybe, find love along the way.

Finally, we wrapped up 2013 with the release of Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God for PS Vita. This rather wacky game blends a comedic plot with challenging roguelike functions.It’s as fun as it is frustrating (in a good way, we promise).

In 2014, we’ll be hard at work bringing some of our biggest franchises to you.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma, the newest iteration of the famed BlazBlue fighting game series, will be released on March 25th, 2014 for PS3. BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma is currently available for pre-order, with a standard edition as well as a limited edition that includes items like a behind-the-scenes blu-ray and a Rachel Alucard nendoroid petite.

Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi

And Muramasa Rebirth isn’t over simply but. We’ll be releasing all 4 DLC packs stateside beginning in early 2014 with “Genroku Legends: Fishy Memories of the Nekomata.” Every of the DLC in “Genroku Legends” is standalone, with an absolutely new protagonist and storyline to revel in. Struggle new bosses or combat these from the unique story.

Finally, Hakuoki: Tales of the Shinsengumi for PS3 brings the extremely-acclaimed Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom to lifestyles with just about 20 hours of further content material and storylines.

2014 shall be an important year for Aksys Video games as our bulletins to this point are simply the tip of the iceberg. Keep tuned as we introduce new titles, and we hope that you just rock on with us!
