Otome game starring Keiji Inafune's niece drops later this summer

Sweet Fuse: At Your Side will arrive on August 27, Aksys Games has announced. In addition to being among the last games join the PlayStation Portable's library, the title's release marks something of a rarity, as otome visual novels scarcely find their way to Western shores. 

The story follows Saki Inafune, the fictional niece of Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune, who, along with seven sexy dudes, enters into a deadly game of complex puzzles to save her famous uncle's theme park from a malevolent hostage-taking hog.

While Sweet Fuse is a PSP title, PlayStation Vita owners are in luck, as the game will also release digitally via PlayStation Network in both Europe and North America. However, those with a penchant for swag might want to pick it up on UMD format, as Amazon pre-orders will include a bonus necklace resembling that of the game's piggish villain. Sweet.
