June 24 is going to be a big day for otaku games in Japan. Enormous. Gianormous. Huuuuuuuuuuge. Here's why:
On June 24, a slew (yes, a slew) of otaku-geared titles go on sale. An insane number of games. Crazy, crazy, crazy!
From checking the calendar, I cannot seem to pin point why all these games are getting released on June 24. (If you happen to know why, please let me know!) What's more, there are titles that are geared for male players, and there are titles that are geared for female players, too.
Here, have a look:
