Game localizer MangaGamer announced that it acquired the rights to Tick! Tack!, the follow-up to the adult game Shuffle!
This visual novel from Navel follows Shuffle! protagonist Rin and Nerine as they are sent 20 years into the past before Nerine's father, the King of the Devils, marries her mother. It is up to Rin to keep the timeline in check and ensure that Nerine is born. MangaGamer plans to release the game next year.

The company licensed Shuffle! in 2009 and released it as a digital download that year. Customers who purchased the digital download can upgrade their version with a patch for free.
Navel released the first Shuffle! game in 2004, followed by Tick! Tack!, Really? Really!, Shuffle! Essence+, and Shuffle! Love Rainbow. The game series inspired two television anime series, as well as several novel and manga volumes. Funimation licensed and released the first Shuffle! anime series in North America in 2008.
