Aksys Announces Old and New Otome Titles coming to the West in 2020! (Nintendo Switch)

New Otome Game Titles Coming to the West in 2020!

The wait is over ladies! As of today (July 5, 2019), Aksys Games confirmed several Otome titles that will grace the West in 2020 for the Nintendo Switch console.

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.

Here’s a list of what we’ll have:

 

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 sources tell me, it’s gonna be on separate cartridges (seems like it). The release date for Guardian of Rebirth will be on December 2019 while Future Blessings remains TBD in 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 title, CxM became very popular in the West due to its heart-pounding mystery type storyline topped with its alluring cast of characters that will leave you breathless all throughout the game. Not only that but the game’s first fandisc, Collar x Malice Unlimited is on its way too. Both games’ western release date for the N.Switch remains TBD in 2020.

CxM is my favorite otome title so I’m naturally excited about this. If you’re curious about this title, feel free to check out my review of the first game here.

 

 

PIOFIORE NO BANSHOU (WORKING TITLE)

That’s right folks! This mafia themed otome game is finally gracing 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. Aksys, has yet to confirm the game’s official English title. Piofiore no Banshou’s western release date remains TBD in 2020.

Fun Fact: Piofiore no Banshou’s Nintendo Switch port in Japan, was recently announced this year (set to release on July 25, 2019) as well as it’s upcoming fandisc for 2020, Piofiore no Banshou – Episodio 1929.

CAFE ENCHANTE

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

Cafe Enchante or Gensou Kissa Enchante (Japanese Title) was initially announced back in 2018’s Otomate Party in Japan but it wasn’t until this year’s recent Otomate Party (JP) that we got to see more information about the game and it’s set of unique and interesting characters. Cafe Enchante is set to release in Japan by October 10, 2019, while the western release date remains TBD in 2020.

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

Fun Fact: This game’s scenario writer is Nao Kojima, a well-known screenwriter in the Otome Industry who’s fairly popular 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. 😭
