If you're looking for a visual novel that has more to do than "press X to choose," then go on ahead and pass 7'sCarlet by.
Thank you to Aksys Games for kindly supplying the game code for this review!
If you're a fan of Otome visual novels, then you're going to have a lot of fun playing 7'scarlet on PlayStation Vita. The great art style and varied locations, solid storyline and likable characters make this one an easy game to recommend for you to play on the go.
7’scarlet is a game that tries to be a murder mystery and otome game, but doesn’t always succeed at both to sustain a flowing narrative. However, the male protagonists, despite the tropes, are charming and even the supporting characters help add to the story. The moments that really deliver are accentuated by the ambient soundtrack. In this case, the highs outweigh the lows when it comes to 7’scarlet. I must have spent over 20 hours with the game, but I do not regret it. 7’scarlet is available now on PlayStation Vita, physically and digitally, for $39.99.
Rejoice! 7’sCarlet is the otome visual novel fans have been waiting for.
