Another month into 2021, another post sharing recently announced new games with yuri potential and reminders of previously announced games.
First up is the surprise announcement of an OshiRabu: Waifus Over Husbandos sequel, OshiRabu: Waifus Over Husbandos Love or Die, by Sukera Somero. The game is set a year after the prequel.
Unlucky otaku Akuru Hayahoshi could never pull her husbando in the gacha game she’s obsessed with, no matter how much money she threw at it– Until one day, she ran into the garishly gorgeous and freakishly lucky Ren Furutachi.
A series of misunderstandings led to a proposal, and Ren started to full-on pursue Akuru…
Until they ended up dating for real!
It’s been a year since the couple started living together in blissful cohabitation.
One day, Akuru catches a glimpse of Ren’s plans for after she graduates:
“Number 1 life goal: Marry Akuru!”
Of course, Akuru’s not interested in marriage…
But one day, struck by a fit of jealousy over Ren’s long-time friend, Aira Udou, she ends up unthinkingly accepting Ren’s proposal.
By the time she realizes what she’s done, it’s too late…
Ren’s already in bridezilla mode and starting to plan the wedding!
Now Akuru has to deal with wedding planning on top of fending off Aira’s advances toward Ren.
Will the two be able to get hitched without a hitch?!
And will Akuru still have time for her 2D husbandos?!
It’s time to woman up and commit, Akuru!
OshiRabu 2 is scheduled for a July 30th release on PC. Whether it’ll be an international release or the Western version will come out at a later date I’m not sure about yet,
My review of the prequel HERE.
Thanks to Yuri Mother for reporting this in English.
Next we have Letters From a Rainy Day -Oceans and Lace-, by Lily spinel. Yet another high school yuri story with a catch, the main girls are brought together through a blackmail letter.
One day, popular student Mikoto Kurahashi receives a blackmail letter,
threatening to harm her sister, Yumi Kurahashi,
unless she asks out a first-year student named Shiori Minato.
At first, Mikoto thinks it’s a prank–until Yumi gets hurt.
So, she asks Shiori out in order to protect her sister.
Mikoto starts dating Shiori believing her to be the blackmailer.
At the same time, Shiori struggles to get Mikoto to engage with her.
It’s June in Kamakura, and the hydrangeas are blooming.
Two girls are brought together,
their relationship manipulated by blackmail.
And so begins their bittersweet story…
Letters From a Rainy Day -Oceans and Lace- is scheduled for a June 29th, 2021 release on Steam.

The first title is Cute Bite, a vampire title.
For a vampire’s loyal servant, a human kept alive beyond a natural lifespan by the power and magic of vampire blood, life is a matter of simple obedience… until misfortune befalls the vampire lord. To preserve your existence, you must awaken a new vampire mistress and re-establish the blood bond.
Unfortunately, during those long years asleep in a coffin, your vampire mistress shrank to child-size form! She has no memories, no magic, and a tendency to bite anything she can lay her hands on. In this condition, she won’t be able to perform the blood bond!
Can you help her to regain her full power before your time runs out?
Your choices will shape the vampire’s personality and determine the future that you share… if you live that long.
The second game also in development is Night Cascades:
The game is set during the 1980’s where belief in the paranormal has gone mainstream and the Satanic Panic is in full swing, but same-sex relationships remain illegal.

Speaking of updates, here are reminders of upcoming games planned for Summer or a little later.
Staying on topic of Hanako Games, one of the above mentioned developed titles, A Little Lily Princess is now available on Nintendo Switch, PS4/5 and XBOX One/Series XS. Published on consoles by Ratalaika Games.
My review of the PC version HERE.
To avoid spoilers, all I will say is the story revolves around a couple who were mentioned in Melancholy Love but the exact details of their relationship weren’t elaborated upon. This game tells that story.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is an HD Remastered collection of the original Mass Effect Trilogy and all DLC. Players can create their own Female Sheperd and there are several female romance options across all three games. The interesting part is some romances made in a previous game carry over to the next game. For example, romancing Sha’Ira in ME1 carries over to 2 and 3 in some way. I’m sure most readers don’t need me to tell them about this considering how huge the series was back when Bioware dominated the Western RPG landscape.
The Legendary Edition is available on PC, PS4/5 and XBOX One/Series X/S.
Sword of the Necromancer, developed by Grimorio of Games and published by JanduSoft.

Despite the awesome introduction trailer the in-game graphics look like an SNES Action-RPG.
The game is available on Steam, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and XBOX One.

LIP! Lewd Idol Project, by Toffer Team, will be split into multiple Volumes broken down into several episodes, centered around the three girls the protagonist Kairi meets. The first part of Volume 1 is scheduled for a release between late June and early July if all goes well. Add the game to your Steam Wishlist HERE.
Kairi is a young and cheerful girl with a dream… Becoming the biggest and most popular Idol ever!
She recently moved to Akihabara in order to achieve this goal, but she’s been rejected by around fifteen different agencies so far.
Already short on money and increasing debt, Kairi is feeling defeated after yet another failed audition when she meets Ranko, a self-proclaimed “Lewd Producer” that introduces the innocent and shy Idol wannabe into her most recent and ambitious project… LIP! Lewd Idol Project.
With nothing left to lose, and more questions than answers about this adult oriented Idol group, she embarks on an adventure of a lifetime.
Learn more about the project and its planned release schedule on the funded Kickstarter.
Lastly we have Pale Cachexia, by Argent Games. While not marketed as a yuri title, the bond the two girls develop is close enough to warrant mentioning it here.
In this Gothic story of deep bonds and chilling mystery, a young girl named Esther ventures deep within a forgotten forest.
There, she seeks out a potential cure for her mysterious illness: a life-leeching plague known as the Pale Cachexia.
But when Esther meets Seina, who lives all alone in a towering manor, the two girls are drawn to each other in a tale of friendship, sorrow, and bitter loneliness.
Their story is shadowed by the dark secrets of the manor and its graveyard, which haunts Esther even in her deepest dreams.
That’s what I can remember off the top of my head. More will be added when I remember them.
