Aksys Games Pledges Portion of Little Dragons Café Profits to Extra Life

Torrance, Calif.—September 27, 2018—Aksys Games is pleased to announce that the company has pledged to donate $10,000 of profits from the Little Dragons Café game to the Extra Life campaign that raises funds for Children’s Miracle Network® hospitals across North America. Created by renowned designer Yasuhiro Wada, Little Dragons Café is a unique and imaginative game in which players manage a café, explore their world, and raise their very own dragon. The game launched last month for the Nintendo Switch™ and the PlayStation®4 system.

“In Little Dragons Café, the twins are working with a ragtag group of friends to save their mother from a mysterious illness,” said Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games. “We wanted to partner with Extra Life because their campaign to mobilize the gaming industry to work together has raised millions of dollars in the past 10 years for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and helped to heal thousands of kids.”

The company also announced that the Little Dragons Café augmented reality promo app has also been updated with new content. Players can now take selfies with the animated dragon, and more surprises are coming soon. The AR app is available now for free at the App Store and Google Play.

New Aksys Games Lineup Announced at AX 2018

LOS ANGELES – July 11, 2018 – Crowning a very busy and successful appearance at Anime Expo 2018, Aksys Games was pleased to announce several upcoming games at their panel on Friday evening.

“Thank you to all of our fans that came out to Anime Expo – we wouldn’t be where we are without you!” says Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games. “We look forward to great releases in the latter half of this year and the beginning of 2019!”

In Death Mark (PS4, Vita, Switch), a strange rumor is spreading in Tokyo’s H City: those who possess the “mark” will die. Unexpectedly appearing on the body, like a chewed up birthmark, the “mark” is said to result in an unknown death. Now, having lost your memory, you stand before a mysterious house said to protect those who possess the “mark” As the doors swing open, the countdown to death has already begun.

Ghost Parade (PS4, Switch, Steam) is an adventure game with unique gameplay and updatable stories. Set in a beautiful, mystical forest, the game follows a little lost girl named Suri as she tries to make her way home. Along the way she befriends mythical ghosts who guide her and in return ask for Suri’s help in taking back the forest from the humans who are destroying it.

Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~ (PS4, Vita) presents the further adventures of Cardia and the cast of ~Future Blessings~.

Stardust Galaxy Warriors: Stellar Climax (Switch eShop) is a fast-paced 1-4 player local co-op action shooter, combining SHMUP/Brawler gameplay with RPG elements.

Little Dragons Cafe's creator says this game is unlike any other, and the cast is full of "losers and no-good dorks"

Yasuhiro Wada, the creator of the Harvest Moon franchise, is also the driving force behind Little Dragons Cafe. Wada is pretty high up on the game, and thinks it provides an experience unlike any others out there.

“Many games are based off the battles and the combat and the adventure, and that’s great, but I believe that there aren’t many games that go into the personalities of the characters and go deeper into [them]. In that sense, I believe this is a game that doesn’t exist.”

Wada also shared some harsh words for the cast of characters in the game, which was created to help the player feel better about themselves.

“All the characters that appear in this game are just a bunch of losers and a no-good bunch of dorks. We’re all human — there are some good parts and bad parts about us. What the player feels from playing this game is, when they see this bunch of losers, what they’ll think is, ‘I’m better than these guys.’”

Zero Escape series creator looks back on the franchise and fan support

Coming from a Famitsu interview with series creator Kotaro Uchikoshi...

The conclusion to the series, restarted to respond to enthusiastic requests from overseas fans

– When Uchikoshi joined Spike Chunsoft, the first title he worked on was 999, but at first it was planned to be a standalone game. Later on it received a “Platinum” from Famitsu reviews, as well as a good reception overseas, which was why there were talks of making its sequel only afterwards.
– They were making both the second and third games for the DS, but at that time (in 2010) the new generation handhelds 3DS and PlayStation Vita were announced.
– They wanted to work with the new systems, but considering they were developing two games at the same time, they didn’t have enough time and budget. In the end they decided to only make the second game (Virtue’s Last Reward) first, and waited to see its reception before deciding to continue the third game.
– Requests for another sequel after Virtue’s Last Reward were high, but most especially from overseas. Thanks to that, the company also gave a “Go” sign for the third game.
– When asked about the similarities and differences between Japanese and overseas fans:
Similarity: The elements they enjoy in the games may be actually the same.
Difference: Overseas fans have much enthusiasm. Uchikoshi thinks it’s because of a difference in history. Japan has had games in the same genre since long ago, such as Banshee’s Last Cry. On the other hand, the west’s first experience with such a genre was 999, so it felt very fresh to them, which was why the hype built up quickly. It also helps that games within the genre are still relatively rare in the west.
