Aksys Games Announces Three New Otome Titles for the Nintendo Switch this coming 2021!

Aksys Games today announced that they will be bringing three new otome titles from Idea Factory to the west. In addition to Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~, slated for release in February 2021, Aksys plans to launch Olympia Soirée, Dairoku: Ayakashimori and Variable Barricade on Nintendo Switch™ next year.

Olympia Soirée – One of the last of her clan, Olympia seeks to perform a ritual to return light to a darkened world. Struggling within this society’s strict class system, she must find a partner to help her bring unity to the land.

Dairoku: Ayakashimori (English title pending) – Shino’s ability to perceive ghosts lands her a job with the secret government agency tasked with overseeing the supernatural yokai. But even she is not prepared for an assignment to a wonderous, hidden world where she must unify and watch over the yokai.

Variable Barricade – Hibari’s wealthy grandfather is determined to find her a husband… and she’s just as determined not to accept! Will being forced to live in a luxurious villa with the hand-picked suitors result in an engagement?

Olympia SoiréeDairoku: Ayakashimori and Variable Barricade have not yet been rated by the ESRB.

  1. OtomeKitten I just want to say thank you so much for being constantly active and keeping us up to date on otome news! I get so happy whenever I get mail from you because literally no one around me plays otome ;;; I remember I found you via your walkthrough and I’m really glad that I subscribed. Thank you again for all your work! Stay safe ❤

  3. Thank you for your coverage!! I tend to stay away from your review/walkthrough posts, at least for a while, as I like to go into a new game as blind as I possibly can and tinker with it myself, but visiting this blog is always a pleasure, and your lists and quick thoughts have been really precious when choosing what to buy on the Switch.

    Have you played/heard about any of those games? Which are you the most excited for? 🙂 I was initially really hyped for Variable Barricade, since it may be the most widely popular of the bunch, but then I realized Dairoku: Ayakashimori’s art was reminding me of something. Turns out the character artist is Suoh, of Bad Apple Wars fame, and despite BAW not being that groundbreaking, I’m still pretty fond of it for being the first vita otome I played. Seeing Suoh’s art in an other localized game is a joy. I also prefer games with fantastical elements to more realistic ones. Now I just hope the story will follow up on the concept and the protag not be as much of a blank state (I almost typed “bland slate” <<; ) as the one in BAW.

    Hope you have a lovely day and rest of the week!

    1. Thanks for the comment and that’s right. Dairoku’s artist is the same artist for Bad Apple Wars. I haven’t played any of these games yet so it’ll be exciting playing them in EN for the first time. Out of the three I think I’m looking forward for Dairoku the most because of its “yokai/other world” premise lol. I’d love to play VariBari too since it was written by the same writers for Code Realize and Cafe Enchante! 🙂

      Hope you’re having a lovely week as well! Cheers! ❤


  4. I am SO, SO EXCITED! I still have yet to finish Piofiore Memories and Cafe Enchante; however, seeing Nintendo release more otome games makes me so happy (but makes my wallet sad LOL). I cannot wait! Thank you for the update Kitty-chlo! I always come to your blog (the only blog I actually keep up with) to check up on any new game releases, reviews, and walkthroughs! Thank you so much, and I hope you have a lovely day!

  5. I’m super happy that there’s more otome coming in english! ♥
    Also I’m not sure that I’ll play thoses (or maybe only Olympia Soirée). I think I’ll just wait for your review (if you’re gonna make one on thoses games) to decide if I buy them or not. 🙂
    Thank you again for your amazing work! ♥
