Otome PC game Ozmafia!! is being translated into English. Crunchyroll discovered the announcement on the website of Poni-Pachet, the game’s developer.
Here’s the message they posted:
Dear our English-speaking friends and overseas otome game users,
Thank you for your many inquiries and requests.
We have finally decided to sell a localized version of “OZMAFIA!!”.
We are now hard at work making an English version.
Please await further messages for details
such as method and time of sale.
Thank you for your message to us.
I could not reply to every one. sorry.
I worried a lot about whether to make a localized version.
This is because I have repeatedly seen how our data is used publicly in unbelievable ways, such as illegal uploads, in illustrations or in music.
However, I have also seen people who censure illegal uploads raise their voices in order to stop this practice.
It is precisely this what gave me the push that I needed to make this localized version.
Thank you to all of you who believed in my words and waited for a long time.
I hope you will be pleased with this news!
Here’s a description of Ozmafia!! at the Visual Novel Database:
The heroine Fuka is thrown to an unknown land with no memory of her past. All of a sudden, a strange silver-haired guy points a sword at her, and the whole town is running about trying to escape. When the heroine is resigned to the prospect she’s about to be killed, a helping hand is extended to her by…? The heroine will live together with the members of the Oz Family, as in a Mafia family, who are the brave boss managing the organization, named Caramia, the shy and blunt Kanbu/executive leader Axel, and the mild mannered, subdued advisor Kyrie. Caramia is based on the Cowardly Lion character of the original Oz story, Axel on that of Tin Man’s, and Kyrie on Scarecrow’s character.
