Aksys brings visual novel Code: Realize west

Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth to give it its full title will hit the Vita this Autumn thanks to Aksys. Another visual novel, its a steampunk period affair from Idea Factory, with manga-takes on some famous literary and historical European figures, including a Van Helsing and a Frankenstein, to get us away from the usual mad panty waving doe-eyed Japanese game staples.

The game was well-rated in Japan and sold around 8,300 copies on launch thanks to its spooky fairytale romance premise. More info on the US PSN blog.
