Aksys Games announced on Thursday that it will release the Code Realize ~Future Blessings~ (Code:Realize ~Shukufuku no Mirai~) fan disc for the PlayStation Vita on March 30 in North America, and in spring in Europe. It is also releasing Code Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~, which bundles both the original Code:Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ and the Code Realize ~Future Blessings~ games in a single release for the PlayStation 4, on the same dates in the same territories. The games will have both a physical and digital release.
The original game shipped in Japan for the PlayStation Vita in 2014. Video game publisher Aksys Games released the original game from Idea Factory and Design Factory in North America and Europe in October 2015. Code Realize ~Future Blessings~ shipped in Japan for the PS Vita in November 2016. The Code Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~ bundle release for the PS4 shipped in Japan last August.
The game features a steampunk aesthetic and a cast of literary and historical figures, including Arsène Lupin, Abraham Van Helsing, Victor Frankenstein, Impey Barbicane, and Count Saint-Germain. Aksys describes the story:
Restricted to an abandoned mansion on the outskirts of London in fulfillment of a promise to her father, lonely Cardia lives day to day isolated from the world. Her body carries a deadly poison that rots or melts anything her skin touches, prompting the locals to call her a “monster.”
Her last conversation with her father two years ago, telling her to stay out of sight and never fall in love, is the furthest back she can remember. One day, her quiet solitude is interrupted as the Royal Guards break in to capture her. It is then that Cardia meets Arsène Lupin, a chivalrous thief, who helps her escape the soldiers' clutches. She soon finds herself on a journey with Lupin to locate her father, who holds the answers to her mysterious condition. The two are soon joined by four more interesting and handsome gentlemen…
The game's anime adaptation premiered last October. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired and Funimation is offering an English dub.
