Code: Realize fandisc set for release in North America in 2017
After the reigning success of the riveting game, Code: Realize ~ Guardian of Rebirth~ among other otome titles, Aksys Games made a huge announcement at the 2016 Anime Expo regarding the release of the fandisc titled Code: Realize ~ Future of Blessings ~ in the year 2017. Otomate first released the original game titled Code: Realize ~ Guardian of Rebirth ~ in Japan in the fall of 2014. Akysys Games then released the game in North America and Europe in the fall of 2015.
The prestigious game company Otomate – a subsidiary of the Japanese video game and publishing company, Idea Factory – developed and published the title for the PS Vita.
The original game’s story revolves around the protagonist, Cardia and depicts how her encounter with one notorious and courteous thief, known as Arsène Lupin causes her to abandon her cradle of isolation. First in order to seek a cure that would rid her body of the deadly poison it carries, and second (although not explicitly mentioned) to find love. Due to the poison in her body, Cardia is unable to experience skin contact with others. One touch is all that is necessary to cause someone else’s skin to rot or melt. Thus she albeit hesitantly journeys with Lupin – who later meets with, Impy Barbicane, a comedic inventor – from Wales to the industrial, steam-powered London. The small band find residence in Count Saint-Germain’s mansion and are joined by Victor Frankenstein followed by Abraham Van Helsing.
In Code: Realize ~ Future Blessings ~ the plot focuses on the aftermath of the protagonist’s encounter with the characters Arsène Lupin, Impy Barbicane, Abraham Van Helsing, Victor Frankenstein, and Saint-Germain.
The fandisc also offers players the chance to play new routes, adding new perspectives to the storyline. This widely anticipated game – if anything like its predecessor –guarantees to be a hit in the west with otome game fans.
