Yukiiro Sign - Well the staffs did pick two VAs that have the alias 'Yuki' to act as two of the heroines, so I can say that the staffs really trying to go all out with snow theme there (Translation notes: Yuki mean snow).

Genpei Ryoran - Another Japanese history VN from inre, and you should expect that there'll be gender bender version of Japanese historical characters in that this time it's from Heian era (At 794 to 1185 AD). Just in case you wonder whether there'll be a chance of this to be localized, I think inre may not consider that after they did fail with ChuSingura kickstsrter.

Isekai Sextet - Let's just say that it's good VN to play of you're in the mood for isekai VN that featured the MC work in a tavern while have a harem of cute girls, and if anything else at least qureate know on how to draw good looking heroines.

Island Diary - I only know that the MC was trapped in an island together with three cute animal ear girls, and that the March release here also has English language although apparently the translation is quite a mess so much that they re-release it later (And Steam version use the fixed version).

Wagahime - This time Takahiro decided to write his own new VN that wasn't related to Majikoi instead of asking another well-known writers to write it. As for the VN, looking from mod Clephas's review each route is less about the heroines and more about each faction in the VN itself. While Wagahime here looks interesting, seeing that JAST did say that Majikoi sales was not enough to localized other Minato-soft VN suffice to say that the chance to have this localized by JAST are very miniscule (For now).

That's all for my comments in regard of March 2021 releases.

Wagahime is a great game, though the side-heroine endings suck (basically H then its over without conflict).  I really recommend this to fans of Minato Soft, as it draws on the company's best habits.
