Aksys to sweeten the PSP with otome game Sweet Fuse: At Your Side
Posted on February 14, 2013 by

 

For Valentines' Day, Aksys wanted to give a very sweet present for their fans. In a press release sent out they have announced that they will be brining over the otome game Bakudan Handan, now known as Sweet Fuse: At Your Side. The game center around Saki Inafune as she gets invited to a theme park owned by her famous game developer uncle, Keiji Inafune. Yes, Keiji Inafune. As in the father of Mega Man and ex Capcom developer.

As soon as the park has its opening, it gets taken over by mad man and forces his captors to play a series of deadly games to save their lives. Saki volunteers to be a part of the games in order to save her uncle and the staff. While an English trailer has yet to been released, the game has been out for some time in Japan, so here is the Japanese trailer: 

 

Sweet Fuse: At Your Side features the following:

  • Vast, Diverging Story – 14 different endings and a host of unexpected twists and turns allow for over 30 hours of compelling gameplay.
  • Stylish Art – Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is an experience that is stylish and easy on the eyes, with complex, eye-catching character designs.
  • Disarm Perilous Puzzles – Reach an epiphany and solve dangerous puzzles; the fate of you and your companions depends on your insight.
  • Unique Characters and Interactions – Blow your fuse or stay completely cool, the choice is yours when dealing with this crazy cast of characters.

I think a cool thing about the game is that Keiji Inafune was an actually consultant for the game, designing some of the characters and even the theme park his in-game character owns. Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is set to release this Summer 2013.

A Sweet Valentine Announcement

Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is coming to North America

 

February 14th, 2013 -Torrance, CA – Aksys Games is pleased to announce a new visual novel adventure title, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side, a heart-felt blend of bomb-defusing action and death-defying romance for the PlayStation®Portable. Developed by the Idea Factory Otomate Studio, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is the newest addition to a growing catalog of adventure titles published by Aksys Games. Featuring an eccentric cast, engaging puzzle mechanics, and numerous unique story segments, Sweet Fuse: At Your Side is your ticket to a wild and explosive adventure.

Story Summary

Saki Inafune, niece to legendary game developer Keiji Inafune, can’t wait to visit her uncle’s new theme park. She’s been invited to the opening day ceremonies, and is looking forward to a day of fun and excitement when suddenly Count Hogstein—a villain as corpulent and cliché as he is evil—blows up the Ferris wheel, takes the park management hostage, and declares the beginning of a deadly series of games.

Desperate to save her uncle, Saki volunteers to be one of the participants in Hogstein’s games, and finds herself thrust into the midst of excitement very different from what she’d expected when she woke up that morning. She’ll need all of her cunning, determination, and exceptional insight to get herself and her fellow participants—all available bachelors—out alive and maybe, with a little luck, find love along the way.
