The boys are back and ready for some arcade-style action in Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Breakup! The original cast of Jules, Quincy, Haru, Morgan and Kyun are joined by 4 newcomers – Canadian martial artist Dakota, Brazilian skater boy Faren, Australian police officer Sydney and Hong Kong airline pilot Bao, all with their own unique backstories and voiced in Japanese. (Some still have cute little foreign accents, but bear with them, they're trying their best!)
As you play through dozens of challenging brick-breaking stages, you’ll gradually get closer to the boys by spending points you’ve earned in a new in-game shop system to unlock sexy outfits and background images to assemble custom dioramas in Dressing Room mode. Each of the 9 characters starts in regular male attire and will crossdress in the feminine outfits you acquire, from uniforms and skirts to swimsuits and lingerie.
But don’t get cocky! The brick-breaking stages of Pretty Battle will gradually increase in difficulty. In this mode, you’ll control a twin-tailed fighter wielding a beam saber and swat a ball towards block targets above. Some blocks will drop power-ups, while others will take multiple strikes to bust. As the action intensifies, enemy ships will appear and fire at you, propellers will deflect your shots, turrets will track your position and more, adding a bullet hell element that’s ultimately tough but fair. Once you’ve cleared all 36 Pretty Battle stages, you can also push your limits with endless challenges. How long can you endure?
