It’s a great time to be a girl gamer. We are seeing a huge influx of anime otome dressup games. These 3 are all coming in June and July of 2021. Be sure to Pre-register for amazing gifts.
1.) Shining Nikki
Finally, an English release of Shining Nikki! This is the 3D version of Love Nikki. It has been out in Asia for about 2 years already. I was beginning to wonder if we would ever see an English version. I played the Asian versions for a bit and it’s very fun to see Nikki in 3D and animated and moving. She’s even cuter now.

2.) Atelier Online Global
Remember, I just mentioned this game a few weeks ago in my post about all of the Atelier games. I mentioned there’s a Japanese online game but that the English version release date said TBA (To Be Announced) – Well, the wait is over. The global English version of Atelier Online has officially been announced. You can sign up here https://atelier-online.boltrend.com/en Also Boltrend has an Arc the Lad game that just came out last month. But apparently, the arc the lad game just shut down in Japan a few days ago… so that doesn’t bode well for the global version. Still interesting, as Arc the Lad was a game I mentioned in a blog post here wondering whatever happened to that series. Atelier Online Global is also launching on July 8, 2021 – the same day as Shining Nikki.
3.) Alice Closet
Another one that fans have been anxiously awaiting. Alice Closet’s official English release is right around the corner. Sign up at http://www.alice-closet.com/ This one looks super cute for anyone into Japanese lolita fashion. It’s release date is June 17, 2021. Character design is by Arina Tanemura. I’m a huge fan of Full Moon Wo Sagashite, so I am familiar with some of her work. The wait is almost over. The game launches one week from today. I can’t wait!
It’s going to be a great summer of games for us girls. Be sure to check out all of the other anime dressup games I’ve reviewed over the years. Maybe you’ll find a new favorite game to play on those long hot summer days. Stay cool!
