    One portion of the main game is a sidescroller where you form teams of four fighters, and direct them to engage enemies with a simple tap. Your team members become stronger with the EXP earned from defeating enemies, or by equipping special Spirit Cards that enhance their abilities. As your fighters take hits from their foes however, it is reflected in their damaged clothing and appearance.

    And of course, as par for the course for otome games, the other portion of the main game involves developing a personal relationship with one or all of the male characters. Part of it is “skinship” or creating intimacy through touch, which takes advantage of smartphones’ touchscreens to add an additional layer of authenticity.

    Otome Yusha won’t be out until summer 2017 in Japan, so while you wait you can feast your eyes on the gallery below!

      I see Ishikawa Kaito is too insignificant a name for you to mention in the wrote up, even tho he’s the first name in the cast (and the only voice in the first pv revealed for this game, even tho back then there were no names revealed)
