Aksys Games have announced at Anime Expo they are bringing over the Otomate title Collar x Malice, which has yet to be released in Japan.

The otome title stars a young woman who is forced to wear a poisonous collar around her neck after she is attacked. Trust is a theme throughout the game as she interacts with various love interests.

Here is a full rundown, via VNDB:

Due to the occurrences of serial brutal crimes, Shinjuku has become a dangerous town to live in. The protagonist works as a police officer and works hard everyday to keep the town safe.

However, one night, someone attacks her and places a collar around her neck with poison inside of it. Amidst the chaos and right before the protagonist’s eyes are men with suspicious backgrounds. They’re all part of an organisation composed of former police officers and have taken it upon themselves to investigate the brutal cases.

Without knowing whether she should trust these men or not, she suddenly came to hold the key to the massive case. In order to remove the collar that places her at the edge of death and to liberate Shinjuku from the malice that binds it, she cooperates and begins to investigate the incidents with the men.

Who holds her life in their hands?
Will Shinjuku ever return to its former glory?

Collar x Malice is coming in 2017 to North America in English. No word on a European release.
