posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
KOEI Tecmo Games announced during its "Neo Romance 20th Anniversary Finale" event on Saturday that a new game in its Neo Angelique game series has been green-lit. Angelique series developer Ruby Party is developing the game with cooperation from Idea Factory subsidiary Otomate (Amnesia, Diabolik Lovers, Norn9), and it is slated for a 2016 release.
The Neo Angelique series is a spinoff of Ruby Party's Angelique series of games, which is itself part of KOEI Tecmo and Ruby Party's Neo Romance game series for girls, which includes Angelique, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, Kin-iro no Corda, and Geten no Hana. The Angelique series has been adapted into four OVA episodes from 2001 to 2004, as well as two television anime: Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique: Kokoro no Mezameru Toki (which premiered in 2006) and Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique: Kagayaki no Ashita (which premiered in 2007).
The Neo Angelique series has been adapted into two seasons of a television anime, Neo Angelique Abyss, and Neo Angelique Abyss -Second Age-, which both premiered in 2008. Crunchyroll streamed the series. Sentai Filmworks released both series on DVD in North America in 2010.
Angelique Retour, the latest game in the series and a remake of the original 1994 game, is slated for release on the PlayStation Vita on December 17.
