The games were first brought out on PSP, by the third game they were continued in PS Vita / PS TV format, the first two games were soon also brought out in this format. In 2017 it was announced the first three games would be brought out on PlayStation 4. In 2018, a new game titled Diabolik Lovers: Chaos Lineage was announced and released in March 2019 on the Nintendo Switch.
An anime adaptation was first announced at a 2013 event called the "Rejet Fes 2013 Viva La Revolution". During the "Otomate Party 2013" event later that year, it was announced that the adaptation would be directed by Atsushi Matsumoto and produced by the Zexcs studio. It later premiered on AT-X along with online streaming on Niconico between September 16 and December 9, 2013. Crunchyroll also picked the adaptation up for streaming in territories including the United States and Canada. It was subsequently licensed by Sentai Filmworks and was released with an English dub and subtitles by the company on a 2-disc DVD volume set on December 2, 2014. This adaptation features three pieces of theme music. The opening theme is "Mr.SADISTIC NIGHT" performed by Hikaru Midorikawa and Kōsuke Toriumi. The ending theme is "Nightmare" performed by Yuki Hayashi. The second opening is "Kindan no 666" performed by Ryōhei Kimura and Daisuke Kishio. The DVD contained several mini dramas depicting events that occurred to the Sakamakis off-screen during the anime. An OVA episode was bundled together with the Diabolik Lovers: Dark Fate game and released on February 28, 2015. The Blu-ray edition of the series was released in 2015.
Diabolik Lovers is classified as an otome game, where the player takes the role of the main female character, Yui Komori (name is changeable) who can choose from a variety of male characters as her love interest. In Diabolik Lovers, every playable character's route is split into three sections: Dark, Maniac and Ecstasy. Each of these three sections are split into a prologue, ten subsections, and an epilogue. There are three possible endings for each character.
i play at few games of diabolik lovers and i just like play for mukami!! (yuma!!) cause mukami characters are just a little better! there are not relate by blood but they look more like family than sakamaki >__
Gah! I know! The scenes were soo freaking predictable at times. I still hate Yui. I only favoritism played this game (Since I wanted to see my Tsunbaru again lol) and only finished the vampire endings for the MEN I wanted to play and for the Mukamis.The inconsistency of the story was ridiculous and just made me want to hurry through the boys I was playing.
lmao I thought my Akazukin review was pretty funny but once in a while I go back and re-read what I wrote and laugh at myself (like did I really write this lmao)First game had a decently solid story to make up for the abuse but here it was just an abuse wagon template so there was nothing to distract you from all the wifebeating
Subaru as well, it's such a pity that the writer made him too violent/angry, where are his tsun-tsun like the 1st game!!! Sigh~ Nevertheless we'll get to see who will win the popularity for the best character. I really hope it's Shu again since last year was Shu~ =D
The gameplay is pretty much identical to Vandead Carnival & involves you picking locations around the Parade to visit. There are also 12 new mini-games (one for each guy) and the game does let you play the ones from Vandead Carnival too.
I hope that everyone has had a nice festive season and has managed to find time to relax. I seem to be making up for lost time and have been busy playing games for the last month but at least I had fun, haha.
The game I ended up playing over the festive period was Subarashiki Hibi (Full Voice Edition) which was probably not the correct choice for the time of year but oh well. I really enjoyed this and was pulled into the story but there was definitely some scenes that were unnecessary.
I needed some fluff after that which Asuka-san wa Nabikanai provided. In typical Azarashi Soft fashion it was a very fluffy game but the build up to the relationship was more interesting than I expected. Solid title as per always.
In a segment where they talked how they chose their games, they explained that either A) companies approached them with a game or B) Aksys would see something that caught their eye. They then went off to explain something that many otome game fans have been wondering, specifically those who have been wanting games like Black Wolves Saga and Diabolik Lovers to see a release in the English-speaking market.
While Diabolik Lovers is the most popular of the two, both series gained a following due to their twisted and disturbing story-lines. As Diabolik Lovers made use of the dummy-head mic technique for its voice actors, it gained even more fans. Diabolik Lovers eventually spawned more drama CDs, game sequels with more characters, manga adaptations, an anime adaptation, and whole line of merchandise.
Aksys, having worked with Idea Factory for some time now in the otome game genre (a majority of otome games are released under Otomate, the otome game branch of Idea Factory), has the most votes when it comes to who fans will go to for a console otome game release. And while Black Wolves Saga -Bloody Nightmare- only has a PC release in Japan, the game was ported and bundled with -Last Hope- under the title Black Wolves Saga -Weiβ und Schwarz for the PS Vita in 2017, giving Aksys not only the ability to localize Diabolik Lovers, but the entire Black Wolves Saga series as well.
The game begins with Yui selecting one of the vampires instead of interacting with them simultaneously until it branches off into specific routes, like most visual novels. Because of this set-up, the only scene which is repeated throughout each character's route is the prologue. Otherwise, there are a total of 30 unique chapters for each character, with these 30 being split into three groups: Dark, followed by Maniac, and finally Ecstasy. An additional three chapters, known as "Heaven" scenarios, act as epilogues to the main story and can only be unlocked when all correct choices are selected. Chapters up to 7 in each group have only one correct choice. Chapters 7 and onward feature two choices that work toward unlocking different endings. End 01 can only be unlocked when all masochistic choices (indicated by an M) are selected, and End 02 is unlocked by selecting all sadistic choices (indicated by an S). Unlock End 03 by mixing these choices.
Idea Factory's Otomate game brand revealed 14 new game titles at its "Otomate Party 2017" event on Sunday, including the Shiritsu BeruBara Academy ~Versailles no Bara Re*imagination~ (Private BeruBara Academy: Rose of Versailles Re*imagination) project inspired by Riyoko Ikeda's classic historical shōjo manga Rose of Versailles.
The game will include the Diabolik Lovers Limited V Edition game that originally shipped for the PlayStation Vita in December 2013, the Diabolik Lovers More, Blood Limited V Edition game that originally shipped for the PlayStation Vita in January 2015. The above video also announces an all-new game project for the franchise. Otomate will reveal more details in the future.

Otome games have a reputation for being light and fluffy romances, and a vast amount of them are. However, as the genre has grown, so has its subject matter. For women, or simply those who enjoy female-oriented content, here are nine otome games with unexpectedly dark depths.
The quasi-dating simulator initially centers around the heroine falling for one of her avian peers but after obtaining several key endings, players can eventually unlock Bad Boys Love, a hidden route that tells the morbid story at the heart of the game and reveals how its world came to be.
The art from this dating simulator game may already be familiar to Mystic Messenger fans. Dandelion ~Wishes brought to you~ was developed by Cheritz, the same South Korean game company that created Mystic Messenger and sprinkled multiple Easter eggs and flat-out references to Dandelion within the popular app game. 2b1af7f3a8
