Aksys Games announced at its panel at Anime Expo on Friday that it will release the Death Mark, Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~, Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax, and Ghost Parade games.

Aksys Games will release the Death Mark (Shiin) horror game on Playstation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch, in both physical and digital editions.
The game is set in a Tokyo suburb that has lately seen many bizarre deaths. All those who have died bear a "mark" on their body, and urban legends swirl about these marked people, with some saying they were cursed by spirits to die. Players take the role of one such marked person, and choose another character and fellow marked person as a partner. The protagonist and partner must visit haunted locations and find clues to unravel the mystery of the mark before they die.
Aksys Games will release Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ (Code:Realize ~Shirogane no Kiseki~) for PS4 and PS Vita in both physical and digital editions. The game is the second fandisc for the Code:Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ game.
