During Aksys’ Anime Expo panel, the company who’s known to localize famous Otomate brand titles, have confirmed four games they’ll be bringing to the West in the next year.

CODE REALIZE: Guardian of Rebirth and Future Blessings

Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth and it’s first fandisc, Code Realize: Future Blessings are finally getting a Nintendo Switch Port. First of all, I assumed they would just port the PS4 Game, Code Realize: Bouquet of Rainbows (which basically consist of the two games in a bundle), but it looks like Aksys will be having them on separate cartridges. The release date for the following Code Realize games are as follows:

Code Realize: Guardian of Rebirth – February 6, 2020
Code Realize: Future Blessings – April 23, 2020

If you’re new to the Code Realize Series, I’ve written reviews for both the first and second game, feel free to check em’ out below:

COLLAR X MALICE AND COLLAR X MALICE UNLIMITED

The famous crime-solving otome visual novel, Collar x Malice is finally getting a Switch port.  To those who are new to this game, CxM became very popular in the West due to its heart-pounding mystery type story-line topped with its alluring cast of characters that will definitely drive you at the edge of your seat.

The series’ first fandisc, Collar x Malice Unlimited is on its way too. Both games will be released this summer of 2020.

Collar x Malice – June 25, 2020
Collar x Malice Unlimited – August 13, 2020

PIOFIORE: FATED MEMORIES

That’s right folks! This mafia themed otome game is finally coming to the West after getting a lot of well-received feedbacks from the Japanese market back when it was first released in 2018 for the PS Vita. The game’s original Japanese title was Piofore no Banshou but Aksys, has recently confirmed the game’s official English title as Piofore: Fated Memories. This title will have an end of the year release date in 2020.

Fun Fact: Piofore no Banshou’s first fandisc (Piofiore no Banshou – Episodio 1926) was recently announced during 2019’s Otomate Party in Japan. Hopefully the fandisc will make its way to the west too.

CAFE ENCHANTE

This one actually made me scream. (°◡°♡)

Cafe Enchante or Gensou Kissa Enchante (Japanese Title) was initially announced two years ago during 2018’s Otomate Party in Japan but it wasn’t until this year’s Otomate Party (2019)  that we got to see more information about the game and it’s set of unique and interesting characters.

The game premise is about Kotone Awaki (protagonist) who inherits her grandfather’s cafe only to discover that none of the patrons are human.

Cafe Enchante will have an end of the year release date in 2020.

Fun Facts:

  • This game’s scenario writer is Nao Kojima, who’s notably known for his famous works: Hakuoki, Code Realize, and Variable Barricade.
  • The game’s head illustrator is the artist Yuuya. You’ll find some of her works very familiar if you’ve played the titles:  Hanayaka Nari series, Dandy Shot “Pub Encounters” and Jakuo no Lyla.

  1. Just want to info for Cafe Enchante it was already scheduled release in japan around 10 October this year! (unless if there’s a delay which we hope not) So might as well make Aksys release them around 2020 as well!

    And I think in Piofiore switch was meant to be July 25 in 2019.

  2. Wow. We get the Collar x Malice sequel/fandisc? That will be hard to wait for. I’d love it if they translated the follow-ups to Norn9, but the window for that may have passed…
    Now I’m curious if they’ll port the older Vita games to switch. The Switch Lite seems ideal for ’em.

    1. Hi Elieen!
      True, the wait is gonna painful but nonetheless very much worth it. ^^ The porting and localization all depends the number of sales their former games had, i think. It sucks but understandable since its a niche genre. 😭

  3. Unfortunately the Code Realize games are separate. I don’t understand why they did this, as it could really hurt sales. The people that don’t have a PS4 that wanted both games on Switch now have to pay $80 and Wintertide isn’t even being ported.
    I wish too that Norn 9 sequels got ported, but considering the terrible rush job they did with the first one that killed the sales 😐 probably killed any future games. Maybe some people will fan translate the Vita games.

    Another Mafia game??? Ugh. I’d with they’d have picked something new and fresh rather than trying to cash in on OZMAFIA!. I’m betting Collar X Malice will be two separate games as well? Another $80 for fans that were waiting for the game to come off Vita.
