Title: Romeo VS Juliet
Site: Romeo VS Juliet
Platform: PSP
Release Date: 2013

With just the main page available at first, I didn't know what to think about this game. The original story wasn't all that good in my opinion. Shakespeare certainly had other works that I favor much more. Now that the character page is up though, I got a more in depth look at the cast. Apparently Juliet's family is made up of vampire hunters while Romeo's family is made up of vampires. What really sold me on this game was that Quinrose made Shakespeare one of the characters too XD. If this continues to look interesting, I may have to pre-order it.

Mmm, sorta on the fence on this one.

Definitely into the idea of Shakespeare being a character. But, I'm not so sure as to how I'd feel about the otome aspect of it. I mean, Romeo and Juliet is sorta the ultimate romantic canon ideal... Anything else will automatically feel like an alt pairing just on principle.

Probably stick it behind Arabians and Cinderella as 'Quinrose things that I need to buy' if the CGs look promising.

(I keep hoping we're going to get more Crimson behind all these regular updates. But it seems like they've gone fully Fujimaru in favor of ever giving us a Royale port.)

The odd thing about this game for me is that even though Romeo is canonically supposed to end up with Juliet, he looks the least interesting IMO. You'd think that the canon pairing should look the most appealing but it doesn't. I'm fine with seeing an alternate telling of the story though, because I thought the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet was completely senseless. A tragedy that makes sense is fine, but the only way I could reason out the original story was that the main characters were a couple of teenagers. It just doesn't add up. They barely knew each other, yet one couldn't go on without the other? Yeah, I think I could stomach an alternate version.

Ah, I still need to get Arabians too. *sighs*

I like the artist for this new game more than Fujimaru. When Fujimaru draws she has all these sharp angles that turn me off. The character's movements feel kind of stiff too. However the Romeo VS Juliet artist has more curve and I'll have to see some sample CGs before being able to tell if the motions are more fluid. The only thing I'm not so happy with are the hair highlights, but they fit the rest of the art style well enough, so I can live with it.

Yeah, I'm not quite partial to the nun look Juliet is sporting either. Kinda hoping she loses the headpiece. But then, all of the character designs kinda seem just a bit uninspired to me on this one. Sorta 'roll of a die aha! you get an eyepatch!' roulette of features...

On the other hand usually most of the interesting stuff pops up once you get to start learning personalities anyway so *shrugs* CGs will be nice.
