Following last month’s release of Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Mahjong Solitaire, eastasiasoft has already announced a sequel to the cross-dressing (or undressing?) game. Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Klondike Solitaire will feature the same boys, but this time you’ll need to play some Klondike Solitaire to get them to their skimpiest outfits. The game should be great for those who found the first title a bit difficult or unfamiliar; it’s also a great fit for anyone who just wants more of these pretty boys
The Otoko Cross series is a spin-off of the Pretty Girls series, where pretty girls undress as players progress through games like mahjong, Klondike Solitaire, Texas Hold ‘Em, brick breaker, and more. The main difference between the series is the gender of each set of characters. Otoko Cross features five men (Jules, Quincy, Haru, organ, and Kyun) versus Pretty Girls featuring, well, pretty girls. Matt S. explains the term “otoko” quite well in his review of Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Mahjong Solitaire, but I’ll sum it up the best I can. “Otoko” is short for “otokonoko,” and basically refers to men that express their gender in a feminine manner. These feminine-looking men also cross-dress in traditionally feminine clothing. They are often sexualised, as they are in this series.
The game uses traditional card-based solitaire rules; you know, the ones that feature prominently on that Solitaire game pushed by Microsoft on Windows for years. For each character, there are multiple difficulty levels to clear. Each completed level unlocks a new outfit for casual viewing in the Dressing Room. Easy and Normal difficulties give players a number of assists to keep things breezy, but Hard levels require some careful, strategic play. Clear every stage to unlock the uncensored Naked Mode. The game also features alternate outfits, hairstyle variations, and other secrets to uncover.
Otoko Cross: Pretty Boys Klondike Solitaire will be released for PC via Steam on July 14, 2022. That’s less than a month away! Meanwhile, I’ll be over here crossing my fingers and toes that the series soon makes the jump to Nintendo Switch like the Pretty Girls games have.
