Bad Apple Wars | Visual

Bad Apple Wars heading to PS Vita in 2017 courtesy of Aksys.

At AX 2016, Aksys Games announced that they would be bringing Bad Apple Wars to the West.  Bad Apple Wars is an otome visual novel. It is developed for the PS Vita and was originally released in Japan in 2015. The game is developed by Otomate.

In the game you control Rinka (name is changeable).The game takes place in a school called NEVAEH academy. In this school, souls stay behind after death, a setting similar to that of Angel Beats. In the game you can decide to join either the Disciplinary Committee or the delinquent team called the BAD APPLES.

A synopsis for the story is provided and translated by Otome-jikan.

Congratulations on your DEATH admission!

Welcome to NEVAEH Academy!!

The heroine, who was caught in an accident on the first day that she was to enter high school, suddenly found herself on the premises of an unknown school.

This was NEVAEH Academy, a school for those whose souls were left behind after death.

In this school if you were a good student who followed the rules then, upon GRADUATION, you would be able to return and RESUME YOUR LIFE.

The heroine, having been informed about her death from a suspicious man wearing a RABBIT HEAD and thinking that this was all a dream, followed him to the school entrance ceremony.

Suddenly, a piercing explosion echoed from over there.

What started at the sign of that noise was the school war between those who defy the school’s rules, the DELINQUENT TEAM BAD APPLES, and members of the DISCIPLINARY COMMITTEE.

In the middle of that battle, the heroine meets a RED-HAIRED young man.

That young man faced her directly and asked a question.

“– Do you want to live?”

Aksys plans to release Bad Apple Wars in the west sometime in 2017. If you’re interested in the game you can check out its official Japanese website HERE.
