Nightshade fans! It’s finally here! The Switch port we’ve all been waiting for!

To those who didn’t know, Nightshade (localized version) was initially released last April 12, 2017 for PC (Steam) platform in North America, Europe and Australia. Perhaps, due to the big Visual Novel Console move from the PS Vita to the Nintendo Switch – D3 Publisher has finally decided to release a Switch port for this game.

This game is also available in the PS Vita Console (Japanese only).

Finally! A Switch Otome game that’s worth every penny!  (chuckles) image


View Nightshade’s official website here.


During the Sengoku Period the two main factions of ninja clans, Iga and Kōga, warred against each other for decades.
In the year 1593, Nobunaga Oda started the Tenshō Iga war, decimating most of the Iga ninjas in the process.
The very few that survived were absorbed into the Kōga clan, despite their past rivalries.

After 17 years the Sengoku Period finally came to an end, and Japan was unified.

Enju (Protagonist), daughter of Kandō Ueno, the Head of the Kōga clan, spends her days training diligently in hope of becoming a full-fledged ninja like her peers.

At long last she is assigned to her first mission, but finds herself caught in a dark conspiracy――.


Voice Actors include:

  • Hikaru Midorikawa
  • Wataru Hatano
  • Hiro Shimono
  • Kenjiro Tsuda
  • Kosuke Toriumi

  1. I’ve been eyeing this game on Steam for quite awhile (and planning to buy this one on the next Steam sale), but I also like to collect physical copies of games and it makes me happy to see that this got ported on the Switch. Do you think this version also has the additional scenarios that Steam has on bundle?

    1. Same here! (ノ´ヮ`)ノ*: ・゚
      Been holding off purchasing this game on Steam as I’ve been waiting for it’s Switch release, and it’s finally here! squeeee ^^
      Since the Switch cartridge holds up to 64GB content, it’s highly possible it’ll have the additional stuff they have on the Steam Bundle. 😀
