About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

A follow-up to Super Bernie World, Kitsune Tails is a platformer styled after beloved classics steeped in Japanese mythology and diverse relationships.

Run, jump, and drill into enemies across five 8-bit worlds inspired by Japanese mythology. Master elemental abilities hidden in cute outfits like an earthy rice farmer wielding a powerful jump attack and a snow fox freezing enemies to make new platforms. Power up with stolen skills like a giant rideable boot or an antique samurai spear. Revisit levels with newfound abilities for secrets and side quests to unlock the best ending for Kitsune Tails' queer romance.

Yuzu begins her quest to prove to her kitsune clan, her extended family of fox-people, that her human side won't stop her from faithfully serving as a divine messenger for the goddess Inari. However, the friendly healer Akko saves the half-kitsune hero from a mishap on her first adventure, planting the seed for a budding lesbian romance with Yuzu... and creating a jealous rival in Yuzu's childhood friend and member of the kitsune nobility, Kiri.

"Love takes many forms, but one of the things that makes love special is it can be a vehicle for self-actualization," said Emma 'Eniko' Maassen, Kitsune Games founder. "Players will need to master outfits and abilities to find all the hidden story content and unlock the best ending, and along the way they'll explore the relationships between Yuzu, Akko, and Kiri and watch the three women grow into better versions of themselves."

Kitsune Tails will launch in Q1 2022 on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC.
