Top 10 Otome Games [Updated Best Recommendations]

También puedes leer este artículo en: Español

There aren’t a lot of otome games in English out there. However, it seems that the times are changing, since some otome games are getting licensed in English. Hopefully, there will be a wide selection of English otome games in the future. Put simply, otome game literally means “maiden game”. It is usually in a visual novel format where choices can be made by the players. While the ultimate goal is to fall in love and get the happy ending, there are times when the game requires the players to meet certain requirements to get the players’ desired ending.

In this article, we will only list otome games that are licensed in English. That means fan translated games will not be listed here. However, we will make sure to include them in our special mention list, so look forward to that. Without further ado, we present you the updated version of top 10 otome games.


  • System/ Platform: PC
  • Publisher: MangaGamer, Poni-Pachet SY
  • Developer: Poni-Pachet SY
  • Release Date: Apr. 29, 2016

Our heroine wakes up in an unknown place filled with mafia families lurking around. Fearing for her life, she accidentally bumps into a young man named Caramia who happens to be the head of the prominent Oz Famiglia. Caramia openly welcomes our heroine into his famiglia, giving her the name Fuka.

Despite the awesome premise of the game, Ozmafia!! is more focused on the characters rather than its plot. If you think that you can only date the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow, well, think again. Because Ozmafia!! is overflowing with other characters that you can romance with or simply get to know them in a friendly manner. Furthermore, one of the unique aspects of this game is that you can form a love triangle of your own. It’s up to the player whether you will stick to your initial partner or just plain choose your second partner and abandon the first one. It’s cruel but as we said, it’s your choice. All in all, if you are looking for a funny otome game to play with, then you can never go wrong with Ozmafia!!. We have to warn you though, even with its fun and cute atmosphere, Ozmafia!! can have its dark moments too. You are, after all, playing Wizard of Oz with mafia elements in it.

9. Period: Cube - Shackles of Amadeus -

  • System/ Platform: PS Vita
  • Publisher: Aksys Games
  • Developer: Idea Factory
  • Release Date: April 28, 2017

The “being sucked inside the game” premise has been a hit for the past few years. Examples of this are anime like SAO, Log Horizon, .hack, and Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, to name a few. Just like the anime mentioned, Period Cube: - Shackles of Amadeus - follows the same formula. We have our heroine, Kazuha, who is pulled into the world of Arcadia along with her friend Hiroya after finding out that the game has something to do with the disappearance of her brother. Inside the game, Kazuha tries to uncover the hidden disappearance of her brother while also trying to finish the game. Did we mention that you can die in real life if you die inside the game? Sounds very familiar~

Same with our aforementioned Ozmafia!!, Period: Cube - Shackles of Amadeus - also has a remarkable premise but lacks the proper execution to fully enjoy the story. But if you just want to play for fun and its characters, then, by all means, play the game. Period: Cube is amazingly stunning when it comes to music, CGs, backgrounds, sprites, and graphics. In addition to that, there are also moments in the game when some questions must be answered MMORPG style. The interference changes a bit, making it look like you are playing inside the game. You are also allowed to take quests in your journey, allowing you the chance to go back to the real world. As we said, the characters here are one of the best points in the game. Their backstories are really interesting and their personalities are truly captivating. That’s why you should give this game a go if you simply want to relax and have fun.

8. Dandelion - Wishes Brought to You -

  • System/ Platform: PC
  • Publisher: Cheritz
  • Developer: Cheritz
  • Release Date: Dec. 1, 2012

Animal lovers will surely love this game! Heejung Kim always feels pressured in the presence of her mother. In order to free herself from her mother’s expectations, she decides to choose what she think is best for her: To live alone and go to a university of her choosing. However, now that she is about to finish her studies, she is still uncertain about what to do with her future and realizes that she is not happy at all despite following her decision. But it seems fate has something in store for her when she wakes up one morning to see three rabbits and two cats placed nicely in a basket near her bedside.

If you enjoy the gameplay of the Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side series and Otometeki Koi Kakumei Love Revo!!, then there is no doubt that you will love Dandelion -Wishes Brought to You-. Unlike Tokimeki and Love Revo, Dandelion has a lot more to offer when it comes to the story. We are not saying that Tokimeki and Love Revo don’t have their own unique story, we’re just saying that if you want a stat-raising game with a much heavier and deeper plot, then Dandelion is a good choice for you. Like many other otome games out there, Dandelion is filled with cute and funny moments. But once you get deeper into the story, you see that this game is filled with a lot of bittersweet moments as well. Of course, since this is the first game of Cheritz, it is not without flaws. Nevertheless, we assure you that there are a lot of amazing pros in this game than cons.

7. Amnesia: Memories

  • System/ Platform: PS Vita, PC
  • Publisher: Idea Factory International, Goczus, Inc.
  • Developer: Idea Factory
  • Release Date: Aug. 25, 2015

Amnesia: Memories is another fan favorite of many otome players out there. The story starts out when you find yourself in the hospital with your memories lost and a cell phone in hand as your guide. You also have a cute spirit beside you named Orion, who seems to be the reason why you lost your memories. He declares that he cannot leave your subconscious until he helps you remember your forgotten memories. Along with Orion, you will interact with different characters in the game while not making it obvious that you have amnesia. As you choose the route that you want to take, mysteries and secrets will be revealed to you and love will blossom in your journey.

Although the anime adaptation didn’t really have astonishing reviews, the game begs to differ. Amnesia is filled with so many secrets, that players can’t help but play it again and again. You may not entirely like some of its characters because some of them are... let’s say unique? strange? But fear not, because the great thing about this game is its story. There are indeed sweet moments, but you can bet that there are only a few, as this game is serious in nature. Interacting with characters is very important here, especially when you are trying to connect with your chosen partner. Just pray you pick the best answers so you can have your fluffy happy ending. Because if you don’t, you’ll get the bad ending instead, and we’re telling you, bad endings of Amnesia: Memories aren’t pleasant at all.

6. Sweet Fuse: At Your Side

  • System/ Platform: PSP
  • Publisher: Idea Factory, Comcept
  • Developer: Idea Factory, Aksys Games
  • Release Date: Aug. 27, 2013

Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is a fun otome game with lots of action, mystery, and romantic moments. It is the grand opening of Keiji Inafune’s theme park and Saki Inafune, Keiji’s niece, cannot miss the wonderful event. The event seems to be doing well when, suddenly, a man in a pig suit takes Keiji and other innocent people as hostages. In order to save them, the villain demands that 7 people must stay and play his deadly games. Without hesitation, Saki agrees to join the deadly game, trying to work together with her six male companions.

Despite its outrageous premise, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side does not fail to deliver. The game is very interactive, making you choose possible answers during important situations. Your choices don’t only affect your relationship with your desired partner, but it also influences whether you can save the theme park and its hostages. As you solve perplexing puzzles along the way, you will get to know the real story of our villain, your chosen partner and maybe about yourself! Characters of this game are also one of a kind! They may look like they are following a certain trope, but no, the characters here are unique in their own way. Most especially our heroine, Saki. She may rub you the wrong way in the beginning because of her boisterous attitude, but as you progress in the story, you will see a cuter and sweeter side of her.

5. Norn9: Var Commons

  • System/ Platform: PS Vita
  • Publisher: Idea Factory, Aksys Games
  • Developer: Otomate
  • Release Date: Nov. 3, 2015

Contrary to other otome games, Norn9: Var Commons features three heroines that you can choose from, with each heroine having three bachelors to date. But before you choose the heroine you want to play as, you will be in the perspective of Suzuhara Sorata. Sorata is a cute boy who is currently enjoying his school trip when he suddenly hears a strange, alluring music and finds himself teleported far into the future. Confused about what just happened, he meets three beautiful ladies and nine gorgeous men in the ship called Norn.

If you’re looking for a fluffy and bittersweet otome game, then go ahead and play this one. Norn9: Var Commons is very simple and straightforward. It seems that there is a lot going on in this game. But the truth is, once you pick the route that you want, the story just focuses more on the relationship between the main heroine that you chose and the guy that you want to go for, showing some hints about the overall story. What is good about this game is that you can see the different perspectives of the characters, which is more evident every time you choose a different heroine. The CG, background, and sounds are also things to look out for. It’s very gentle and pleasing to the eye and gives off this rather warm and gentle feeling.

4. Nameless ~The One Thing You Must Recall~

  • System/ Platform: PC
  • Publisher: Cheritz
  • Developer: Cheritz
  • Release Date: Dec. 24, 2014

Eri is a freshman at Crobi Academy and has a fondness for collecting clothes and accessories for her ball-jointed dolls. Her dolls are the only things that can give her comfort, especially after the death of her grandparents. Eri’s parents are worried about letting her live alone, but Eri wants to stay in her grandparent’s house with her precious dolls. However, one morning, she finds all of her dolls alive and in human form, moving around in her kitchen while greeting her “good morning”.

Just like Cheritz’s first game, Nameless ~ The One Thing You Must Recall ~ starts out innocently and spirals down until you are filled with nothing but sadness and feels. Unlike its predecessor, the game is more text-based rather than a stat-raiser. Since this is Cheritz’s second game, the writing and the execution of the story is more refined and flawless. The game simply deals with the issues of abandonment and loneliness, and as the player, you are tasked with making the right choices in order to free each character from their miserable pasts.

The overall game is superb! It’s filled with heart-wrenching moments that will absolutely make you empathize with the characters more. Also, just like what we did with Amnesia: Memories, we’d like to warn you again about the bad endings of Nameless, as it is creepier. Oh, have we already said that you will know something interesting in the game if you first played Dandelion? These two games can stand on their own, but it’s never bad knowing interesting facts, right? And one last thing, before you play the game, make sure not to forget the name of your first doll. It’ll help you greatly in the game!

3. Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~

  • System/ Platform: PS Vita
  • Publisher: Idea Factory, Aksys Games
  • Developer: Otomate
  • Release Date: Oct. 20, 2015

Cardia has been locked up in a tower for quite a long time by her father. This was so she could avoid human interaction, as she has a condition which causes everything she touches to melt. Her peaceful life gets interrupted when a group of soldiers plan to capture her. Thankfully, a handsome young man named Lupin has come to her rescue. After learning the true reason why Lupin has came into her home, she decides to join him in his journey to find her father so she can know the truth behind her odd condition.

Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ showcases a well-driven plot with compelling characters to boot. The characters that you will encounter in this game will be very familiar to you as they are based on famous classical literary characters like Abraham Van Helsing, Arsène Lupin, Victor Frankenstein and more! Not only that, unlike some otome games that have dull and bland heroines, Cardia is what you may call a badass and cool character. In the beginning of the game, she starts off as a character with no emotion. But during the whole course of the game, Cardia begins to show her own distinct personality and even becomes one of the best characters in the game. Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ is surely one of the otome game titles that you will want to add to your collection.

2. Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds

  • System/ Platform: PS Vita
  • Publisher: Idea Factory
  • Developer: Idea Factory, Compile Heart
  • Release Date: May 16, 2017

If you are a fan of otome games, then we are sure that you have at least heard of Hakuoki. Although the game was released back in 2008, Hakuoki still proves to be one of the most loved games, as it provides engaging plot and intriguing characters. Because of its popularity, Hakuoki was adapted into an anime and was remastered countless times. The story revolves around Chizuru Yukimura as she tries to find the whereabouts of her father. Upon arriving in Kyoto, she is attacked by a group of savage men after witnessing their wild rampage in the quiet night. Fortunately for Chizuru, the Shinsengumi save her life, but she’s not quite lucky enough when they take her to their headquarters for interrogation.

Although Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds is very much the same as its other remastered titles when it comes to the overall plot, the game adds new scenarios as well as new characters that you can form a romance with. Have you ever wanted to date Shinpachi Nagakura, Keisuke Sanan, and Susumu Yamazaki but couldn’t before? Well, now you can; together with new bachelors Hachiro Iba, Kazue Souma, and Ryouma Sakamoto! Moreover, the game is also overflowing with stunning CG, backgrounds, sprites, and music that can take your breath away. If you are into Japanese historical theme romance with a nice devolved plot and characters, then Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds is the right game for you!

1. Mystic Messenger

  • System/ Platform: iOS, Android
  • Publisher: Cheritz
  • Developer: Cheritz
  • Release Date: Aug. 26, 2016

From the same makers of Dandelion - Wishes Brought to You - and Nameless ~The One Thing You Must Recall~, comes another impressive game that is Mystic Messenger. The story is about you downloading a mysterious application messenger. It leads you to an apartment where you find yourself in the middle of RFA’s chatroom. There, you are tasked with organizing another party for the members by inviting guests using your messenger. While organizing the party, the mysteries surrounding the RFA and your chosen partner will be revealed little by little.

Let’s be honest, there are a lot of otome games that are available on our smartphones, but nothing compares to the innovative gameplay and story of Mystic Messenger. In contrast to other otome games, Mystic Messenger really makes use of its messenger to play the game. In the messenger, you can call, text, and even chat with them in real-time. Of course, each of them has their own schedules to follow so you better make sure to keep on the lookout if they are online in the chatroom or are available for you to call them. If you can do all those things to them, they can also do the same things to you if certain requirements are met.

Just like in the summary, your primary goal is to invite guests for the charity party. As you carry out your responsibilities in the RFA, you can have the chance to get to know each character personally. If you have finished the game, then don’t fret, as Cheritz still continues to add special scenarios that can reveal the real story behind Mystic Messenger. We are very sure that this game will keep you entertained with its very detailed storyline and distinct characters.

Final Thoughts

With Messenger Messenger as our 1st runner-up, we conclude the list! Otome games are fun to play, especially when your special husbando takes notice of your character. Although otome games center on romances, what makes them enjoyable are the rich plot lines and, of course, their captivating characters.

So before we end this article, we would like to suggest some well-known fan-translated otome games that will surely make you fall in love with.

Video games that stem from or are shown in anime tend to be visual novels and simulations. While many do tend to lean toward the male demographic, there is a genre of video game for females called otome games!
Otome game literally means "girl game". Most otome games are story driven visual novels that involve a dating sim aspect, but there are other gaming aspects to them as well.
Unfortunately, there aren't nearly enough English otome games out there as there are Japanese otome games, so when you want to play one, where do you start? Check out our top 10 list of English otome games to get you started and chase away those otome game withdrawals!

10. Princess Debut

Princess Debut game
  • Platform: Nintendo DS
  • Released: June 2008

For those who are just getting into otome games, maybe you'd like to consider Princess Debut. The story begins with the protagonist dreaming of being whisked away by a prince when a princess suddenly bursts out of her closet. They decide to switch places, so you end up in the Flower Kingdom where you will have to attend the Ball of Saint Lyon. Now, you've got 30 days to learn how to dance and find a prince.

As an otome game, Princess Debut delivers all the features of standard otome games where you are able to pursue your prince as you please, but it doesn't make you play through several months or years to get to the ending like some other otome games. There isn't a main focus on any one aspect of the game. You have a few rhythm mini games, a few cut scenes, and the days go by fast so the game doesn't drag. There just isn't enough time for you to get bored. Overall, it's a great otome game for starters or those looking for something to kill time. You won't feel invested in it, but it also won't take up too much of your time collecting CGs.

9. Yo-Jin-Bo

Yo-Jin-Bu game
  • Platform: PC

She's not sure what's going on, but now, Sayori has become Hatsuhime, the princess of the Mochizuke clan, who is destined to die. With the help of 6 bodyguards, Sayori must try to change her terrible fate.

The plot of Yo-Jin-Bo is a familiar one that you may have seen in some anime, but you get the chance to be the main character! If you're a fan of Japanese pop culture, you'll love Yo-Jin-Bo for its references. Yo-Jin-Bo has a very light tone with some emphasis on humor so while the plot may not be as awe inspiring, you'll still find yourself having a lot of fun with this otome game before trading it in for something a bit more complex.

Amnesia Memories game
  • Platform: PS Vita, PC
  • Released: August 2015

One of the first of many story driven English otome games released this year, Amnesia: Memories holds its own as one of the top English otome games. Not surprising, the Amnesia otome games are one of the top otome games in Japan!

Much like the anime, you are a girl who cannot even remember her own name. At the start of the game, you decide which door you want to enter: the spade, the clover, the heart, or the diamond. You wake up in a strange place after being involved in a potentially fatal accident. Since then, you have been able to see a supernatural creature named Orion who is determined to help get back your memories, but hiding the fact that you can't remember is tough and it makes it worse when your boyfriend gets suspicious!

Unlike some other otome games, in Amnesia: Memories, you converse a more with the other characters, especially with the boy that you like. While you do technically get to choose your route, it is much harder to get the right ending with that many chances to converse with others. With that aside, you get to learn how your relationships were before your accident and how your amnesia changes everything. You get to learn about the boy's' sides and find out what went wrong on both ends of a relationship. Each route will open your eyes about the boy you are dating and change the fate of your relationship! An added bonus, you'll love the beautiful graphics and CGs this English otome game has to offer!

Sweet Fuse At Your Side game

Don't let the artwork fool you, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is a definite must play for otome game lovers. It follows the story of Saki, a girl who was just going to the opening of her uncle's video game themed amusement park. At the opening ceremony, a villain dressed in a distasteful pig costume takes the staff and Saki's uncle hostage, demanding that 7 people stay in the park to complete the games or else the entire amusement park will blow up with the hostages as victims! Together, you must work with these 6 males to save the lives of the staff and your uncle.

She's always there to slap sense into those boys and you have to love her temper.

The story itself changes quite drastically with each playthrough as you choose different guys and find out the many secrets behind the villain. As far as otome games go, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is perhaps one of the most exciting!
