miHoYo, the developer of the popular RPG Genshin Impact, has announced the global release of its first otome game, Tears of Themis, on iOS and Android.

Following its successful action role-playing titles, Tears of Themis is miHoYo's first foray into the otome genre. For those unfamiliar with otome, it is a genre targeted at women that typically features romance between a female main character and several male love interests. According to miHoYo, Tears of Themis blends romance with the mystery and suspense of the detective genre.

The game features the classic investigation, interrogation, and deduction process of the detective genre, as the main character unravels mysteries and attends court trials. At the same time, it is up to the main character to choose which man holds a place in her heart, and develop their relationship through video calls and text messages.

Tears of Themis will be available in Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, English, Japanese, and Korean, and players can choose between Chinese, Japanese, and Korean voiceovers. The game features an all-star cast including voice actors like Yuki Kaji and Jun Fukuyama.
