Otome Games in Nintendo Switch (English)

Hey folks and all you lovely otome gamers! I purposely made this post as an updated version of the previous one I did back in 2018 titled, Otome Games in Nintendo Switch (English) ~Old Version~. Just so we’re clear, this list will only include otome games that were localized and are currently available in the west. I’ll also make sure to update this list whenever we get new releases.

Games by Kitty

Looking back on what we had two years ago versus what we have right now, I’d say, for such a niche genre, we’re actually making good progress! From mobile ports to vita ports, and now we actually have new games announced exclusively for the switch alone! It makes me really happy to see a lot of support coming from everyone, both old and new otome fans! Nyaa! 

The list below may not be up to par with the Japanese releases for very obvious reasons lol, but here’s what we have so far.

Comments: I personally, liked this game because of its *cough* steamy content and beautiful art. Some routes were great, while others were boring. It is a bit expensive though for a non voiced tittle.

Comments: In terms of the game’s sound and mechanics, I find this one better than the first Yoshiwara series. Story-wise, I’ve only finished Takigawa’s route so I can’t really spell out any thoughts if this game was better than its predecessor. I do like Oghiya MC more than Kikuya MC.

Comments: I kept putting this game down for some reason lol. I’ve been hearing a few mixed reviews regarding Dandy Shot (Pub Encounters). Most of the reviews were actually quite good, as long as you don’t mind romancing older men (chuckles). I’ve only finished Yuze Ryunosuke’s route, he’s the tsundere and his story wasn’t so bad.

Comments: One gripe I have for this game was that, because it was a mobile port the CGs on the Switch looked really weird and stretched. The game has an interesting prologue and I’ve actually enjoyed its steamy content.^^; I’ve finished three routes so far. Some were good, while others were meh.

Comments: If you’re having second thoughts whether or not it’s worth shelling out 50 bux to get this game in your Switch Library. Here’s my advice: GET IT! If you haven’t played the game yet, this one’s definitely a gem. When it comes to the character arcs and story-line, I cannot recommend Nightshade enough! Ask other Nightshade fans and they’ll tell you the same thing! ha! (*´▽`*)

Comments: I use to have the the mobile version of this game and I’ve only played Lufna’s (the cat) route. It’s alright. The story (for that one route) is kinda underwhelming. I might try and finish the rest of the routes one day  (playing the switch version) and write a review but If you’re planning to get this game, maybe get Yoshiwara instead or get this when its on sale.

Honestly, not worth its full price! This game is also a straight up mobile port and nothing new has been added to it in the console version.

Comments: This fandisc contains “After Story” content continuing the (romantic) canon endings of the previous game. Expect proposals and even a wedding scenes of Ichika and her love interest/s! This FD is also VERY STEAMY!🤤 (lots of *internal screaming* guaranteed!). If you can’t get enough of CxM, and all of the game’s cast of characters, this is definitely a must-have!

Chlo’s Rating: 7/10

Comments: This game was such a trip! I loved it! Piofiore has gorgeous art, a beautiful well-written setting, and a large cast of characters suited for everyone’s taste and preferences. It does border a slight bit on the mature side of things. If you get easily triggered with sensitive topics such as violence, drug abuse and human trafficking, maybe avoid this one for your own sake. If not, then go grab the game now and play it!

Comments: Cafe Enchante is a comfort title for me. It’s a game that I can easily enjoy while all snugged up in a warm cozy blanket. It is a mixed of both comedy and wild angst and it has pretty much exceeded my expectations in just about every way. Defo recommending this to everyone (esp. if you’re a fan of Code Realize).

Comments: EPHEMERAL – Fantasy on Dark was first launched for the PS Vita console back in January 2018 in (Japan) and was ported to the PC (Steam) worldwide in September 2018. The plot wasn’t super for this one, but it’s still a cute fluffy game (I surprisingly enjoyed), and I’d still recommend it to those who are looking for a short romantic read.

Comments: Bakumatsu Renka Shinsengumi was initially launched for the PS2 back in December 2004 in Japan and was ported to the DS in November 2008. Basically making this game the oldest otome game in the switch library (lol).

Comments: If you love “noir” inspired visual novels topped with just the right amount of romance to sweep you off your feet, BUSTAFELLOWS is the perfect otome game to indulge yourself in. This was a very nice crime-busting title that was indeed worth the hype. All the guys were great and the heroine is a feisty one!

Comments: An easy recommendation from me, esp. if you’re someone who loves a good fantasy setting. This is a game that’s both rich in plot and steamy romance (emphasize on the *steamy* part, because this title does a wonderful job in giving you that oomph 😉). However, a word of caution to those who gets easily triggered with non-con scenes, as this game was rated M in ESRB for a reason.

And there you have it! So far, these are all the (english) otome games we currently have available in the western eshop. I’m honestly hoping and crossing my fingers that this list will massively expand throughout the years. Let’s keep supporting this genre and that may happen soon enough!

If you think I’ve missed some other titles , please do let me know so I can update this list!

  1. I’m so happy you’re still updating! Glad to see so many games are here and still coming to the west. I remember looking at your old list last year and thinking the switch’s library is looking a bit sparse…sooo glad it’s more expansive now!! It almost seems unreal that C:R and CxM are here too–I read your reviews every so often to scratch the itch of wanting to play it so much and now I’m super excited that I can! And I can’t wait for Cafe Enchante and Piofore to come too ^o^ cheers to you for keeping us updated and to so many otome coming to the switch!!

      You’re right! We’ve come a long way! ^^ From almost zero new games last year to back to back releases this year. It is indeed almost surreal to see more big titles getting localized for the switch console now. I hope you’ve already picked up the CR series and I can’t wait for you to enjoy CxM! 😀

      Thanks! xD here’s to more otoges for switch in the future! ❤ Cheers!

      I believe Piofiore is one of Otomate’s good titles since Otomate Japan announced a fandisc for it last year, I’d assume it was one of the their target audience’s favs that garnered them a lot of sales. 🙂

  4. I am so happy to see an update about Switch Otome games! (´。• ω •。`) I am so excited about CxM along with some of the other ones coming out!! \(^▽^)/ I purchased a Switch not that long ago, but didn’t know they sold otome games until I found your blog! (Bought Code Realize after reading your reviews, and I immensely enjoyed it as my first console otome game, so huge thank you for that!) I only played mobile otome games, and Princess Closet was one of them. However, I never completed it.

    CxM, Code Realize (and some others) were otome games from the PS Vita. Do you think other otome title will be available for the Switch, such as Psychedelica or Bad Apple Wars?

    1. Hi Miki, thanks for this comment! I really appreciate it! ❤ So glad to hear you enjoyed Code Realize, you'll be enjoying it more when you get to pick up its fandisc! (^_−)−☆

      As for your question, I personally think it all depends if a certain game had a pretty good sales margin. I dont think BAW sold well in the vita? Not too sure about the Psychedelica series either since they were recently ported in PC. ┐(´ー`)┌ Though, it'd be really awesome if the Psychedelica games are ported over to the switch as theyre two of my fav titles! ♪( ´▽`)

I have every title ported to it but some are backlogged. I prefer physical copies so I imported Nightshade from Japan since you can choose English as a language to play it in. I am glad Askys is releasing so many physical copies! I noticed the Switch has some girls love visual novels. I wish we could get some boys love ones ported as well. I am looking forward to what the future holds for the Switch!

  10. Hello!

    Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for this article. I have such a big otome game itch after playing ikemen Sengoku again that I really wanted to own a console version where I don’t have to wait for free chapters every day and spend money on other things like side events and stuff.

    I really had no idea where to start and your blog and article really helped out! the reviews and reasoning for each section really helped me determine which one I want to own first.

    I just bought Code realize and it will be coming in the mail soon. hope to buy collar malice and cafe enchant and prifore when they come out too. I cant wait to try Code realize. im so excited.

    I have a few questions if your don’t mind. I see that you are playing Taisho X Alice? what do you think of it? is it worth the buy? I was also interested in amnesia and Norn 9, but wondering if I should hold out for a possible Nintendo release. Do you think there’s a likelihood for a western switch release?

    Steam is also going to have their summer sale soon: which otome games do you recommend to buy?

    sorry for the hundreds of questions. im really excited to jump into this genre.

    1. Hi Sonlia! Thank you for this comment! I appreciate it! ❤ Ahh yes, Ikesen was sucha good otome for a mobile game…and I'm so excited for you to play Code Realize for the first time! I hope you'll get to love and enjoy the characters as much as much as I did! ^_^

      As for your question. Yes, I loved Taisho x Alice and I would def recommend it. Take note, that TaiAli Episode 1 in steam only covers 2 routes and Episode 2 has not been released yet. Hence I have yet to write any reviews for it.

      Amnesia is available in steam and mobile. It's also one of the better Otomate titles that were localized, I just don't know if IdeaFactory International (the publishers) will port the game to the switch. Norn9 is only available in the PSVita.

      The STEAM Otome Games i would recommend are Hakuoki, Amnesia, 7Scarlet, Psychedelica Series and Taisho x Alice. 😀

  11. Hi !

    I just wanted to stop by to thank you for this article !
    I’m a huge fan of Otome Game, but unfortunately, i’m french, and very few games are translated in my native language.
    So i put all my hope in English games.

    Until now, i always play on my computer, but since i have discovered that Otome Game were coming on Switch, I decided to tag along, but I had no idea where to start.
    Thanks to you, I have decided to start playing on Switch with Code Realize, and I looooooved it so much !

    There are still a lot of Otome games that I really want to play at but that are still only available on PS VITA, like Kamigami no Asobi. I have no idea if it will be on Switch some day, but i can still have hope !

    I will keep an eye on your articles, in search of a new games to buy.
    Thank you for your advices.

    1. Hello Lorry! Thanks for this comment! ❤
      I'm glad you're enjoying and having fun with Code Realize! It really is a great game! :3 I'm not sure if Kamigami no Asobi will ever get localized (prob a very slim chance) but as you said, there's absolutely no harm in having a lil' hope!

      If you're playing otome on PC, there are a couple of good ones that were recently ported from the PSVita to STEAM. Titles such as Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly, Psychedelica of the Ashen Hawk and 7Scarlet were actually quite good. ^_^

  13. I’m wondering, as I’m new to all this.. is Voltage going to go through their library and release console versions? $30 or so for the full series (MS, Epilogues, Sequels, POVs, etc) of each character is way cheaper than if you were to purchase those on Love365.

    I was looking for some Switch otomes, as I’ve heard good things about Nightshade, Collor Malice, and Code Realize. And I was surprised to see KBYBB, SCM, OTBS, etc. I have the MS1s of those, but nothing else. But due to the deal that $30 is for all of them.. that’d be worth it.

    1. I’m not sure if they plan to port all their mobile games to the console. I follow their official website to get their recent updates and new game announcements.

      https://www-en.voltage.co.jp/

      and I agree that getting the console version is way cheaper, not to mention, convenient than playing it chapter by chapter on mobile. I’m sure Choudoku otome is good, but it’s wayyyy too overpriced for a non-voiced mobile game. Spending 60 bux for one route is ridiculous imo. 😥

      1. Jeez, I didn’t realize Choudoku was that much! That’s ridiculous. Ha.

        Sidenote, even the ones you’ve rated 5/10 – are they worth getting at all? And, have you gotten a chance to finish any of those you were in-progress on?

  14. Hello! Thank you for this article! I always come here for updates ❤ The game I’m most excited for is CxM: Unlimited!! :3
    I found another english otome for the switch called My Bewitching Perfume. I’ve never played it but when I saw it I just wanted to let you know.
    Thank you for everything!!

  15. I wish they bring us soon more IF! games, I die to play Norn9 (Do you know if there’s hope that they release it?) and japanese popular tittles. Just get my switch to play lots of otome games, but few tittles so far.

    1. Hello! Hmm I don’t think they’ll be porting the localized ver of Norn9. 😢 Also, Norn9 was lisenced by Aksys. The only otome titles owned by IFI are Hakuoki and Amnesia. Unfortunately they haven’t announced anything since Edo Blossoms (2018).

      1. Hello! i got a question, is Collar x Malice unlimited a second part? i haven’t bought Collar x Malice, so if i buy it i’ll have to buy both or unlimited is the game+the dlc “after stories”? first time ill buy on switch and not on steam hehe

        1. Hi!
          CxM Unlimited contains “After Stories” + extra content (side stories). You can, or might as well consider it the sequel of the first game. Unlimited does not have the main game in it, so I’d recommend playing Collar x Malice first to be able enjoy Unlimited.

  20. You’ve definitely convinced me to try Collar x Malice! I second your reviews of Code: Realize (AMAZING) and the Hakuoki series (ALSO AMAZING).

    For those wanting more otome-like games but can’t afford it, go in Itch.io as there are quite a few really great visual novels/otome games there for free/lower price. Cinderella Phenomenon is one I’d highly recommend!

  21. Thank you for listing all and upcoming otome games for the switch! Its annoying to find on the nintendo website. xP I agree +100% on CxM! I played the vita version years ago and still love it! I can’t wait for Unlimited release! I forgot where I bought CxM Unlimited artbook but it looks GREAT. 😉 Ebay? I’ve played most of Voltage Inc games years ago but I’m going to play them again anyway since its been a while. xD

  23. Thank you for the reviews and the recommendations. It is a huge help. For Princess Closet- mention that it is completely kinetic. It bored me to tears when I tried to play because of that. As soon as you choose the guy- there are no more choices at all. I was so mad that it’s even under otome games when you go to buy it.

    1. I would recommend starting with Code Realize! You can also pick up Collar x Malice if you want to play an otome game with a darker theme that’s more plot-heavy. Both games are good and a lot of otoge fans love them. 🙂

  27. Hello! I enjoyed reading your article about English otome games for Nintendo. I’d like to ask if i can play these in Nintendo switch lite? And also can I purchase them on Nintendo e-store without purchasing the hard copy? I’m still new to Nintendo games and I’m planning to buy Nintendo switch lite. Thank you! 😊😊😊
