Story (From Nintendo Switch Eshop)
When the stars and the moon appeared in the sky――.
You went to visit the concert hall where the lower note echoes rhythmically with vibration. Tonight, the one playing music is the Visual-Kei band “FOX EAR”. All 5 unique members are wearing a fox ear.Once you hear their voices, the magatama (comma-shaped beads) that you have on your neck beams out the light. This dazzling light made me lose my consciousness and taken back to “FOX EAR” ’s dressing room. As they pressure you to give them the magatama, but as magatama seems out the light again as if to protect you……。
Although the 5 members noticed that they can’t take it by force, they tried to make you fall for them to get magatama.
Heh, I kinda wish the game’s synopsis was translated better, but eh ┐(︶▽︶)┌ who cares! rofl. Another thing that got me really excited with this game was the voice acting from my favorite seiyus; Daisuke Hirakawa (voice of Saint Germain – CR), Ryohei Kimura (voice of Shiraishi – CxM), and Natsuki Hanae (voice of Libera in PCube / Akito Sera in CxM).
This link shows you some upcoming otome titles developed by OperaHouse to be released on the Nintendo Switch eshop (Japan). So we’ll be looking out for its english releases anytime soon.
- Vinculum Hearts (Japan release date – Aug. 2)
- Gakuen Club (Upcoming)
- Spiral Memoria (Upcoming)
A few hours ago, Aksys Games confirmed the localization for Code Realize Wintertide Miracles during their panel in Anime Expo 2018. This is really good news of CR fans like me who’s been dying to marry Van Helsing forever like, I’m so down with that! lmao
However I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed that there was only one otome title announced this year. I am pretty sure most otoge fans like myself were anticipating titles like the latest FD Collar x Malice Unlimited or at least new games like Piofiore No Banchou or Charade Maniacs (those were some of the many titles in my wishlist).
Aksys Games has also stated that Code Realize will probably be one of the last physical PSVita games in the US. Does this mean going forward, they’ll be releasing games (particularly VNs) on new consoles instead (maybe PS4 & Nintendo Switch)?
Below are some of the non otome titles they have announced during earlier’s panel:
Late post, but last June 21, 2018, D3P released Destiny Princess for the Nintendo Switch Console.
DESTINY PRINCESS: A War Story, A Love Story
Click here for a list of D3P games available on the switch.
Click here for Destiny Princess’ downloadable content (Nintendo Eshop).
You are a princess during Japan’s Warring States period. Loved by your people, you live a peaceful life and want for nothing. However, one day your castle is attacked by hideous demons, and just as the castle is about to fall…
Your wish calls five heroes from different worlds to your time. As the princess, it is your duty to protect your country and your people. Will you risk your life for love?
Just like the Yoshiwara series and Pub Encounter, this game does not offer any VA’s. But they have a couple of good reviews so I believe it’s worth its price tag.
I’m glad I waited for the Switch port to come out before I decided to purchase this one on Steam. Will be reviewing this game as soon as I finish it!
Yesterday (June 14, 2018) D3Publisher released yet another otome game for the Nintendo Switch console.
I remember purchasing one route of this game on mobile and I’m happy to repurchase it again (the whole game, this time) on the Nintendo Switch.

About this game
It’s a romance game where you can fall in love with one of several middle-aged men. All of them are experienced in life and have their own stories to tell. They may not be young, but they can love as deeply and passionately as anyone.
It’s an odd choice for an otome game to port for the Switch this early but I’m hoping they’ll be able to port more of their Steam otome titles after this one. Some I’m particularly rooting for are:
- Gakuen Club
- Destiny Princess
Well now that my DANDY SHOT download is complete, guess who’s jumping on the OJISAAAN bandwagon tonight!?
OMG! guise! Otoge fans! Switch owners! Rejoice! It’s finally happening!! ADHAJHDKJSH!!
Today, Otomate just announced that they will be advancing in their collaboration with Nintendo Switch and will be releasing 12 Otome game titles for the Switch Port.
Don’t believe it? Here’s a link of their original announcement!
I’m so happy I could cry! nyan.
Below are the list of games they will be releasing for the Nintendo Switch:
Four Games are expected to release this year (2018):
- Hakuoki Shinkai: Fuukaden (September 6, 2018)
- Code: Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~ (September 13, 2018)
- Nil Admirari no Tenbin: Irodori Nadeshiko (2018)
- Cendrillon palikA (2018)
The rest does not have a specific release date (year) yet but let’s hope for the best!
Right now, these titles are only confirmed to release in Japan and neither Idea Factory International nor Aksys Games (who’s know for localizing most of Otomate’s titles) haven’t confirmed whether they’ll be bringing these games in Europe and North America. *crossing fingers*
You can view the official trailer for Otomate’s original announcement below:
The Charming Empire
Release Date: Mar. 29, 2018
Digital Download of the NSwitch Game here.
…and we have another one folks! Thanks to D3Publisher, they have now ported, yet another otome game for the Nintendo Switch! Rejoice Otome game fans!
Set in the Taisho Roman era of Japanese history, the game starts when you (the heroine), a woman of normal social status, is summoned to live in the Royal Palace of the Empire where you’ll meet five guys who will sweep you off your feet as well as unravel some hidden secrets of the empire and learn that it might not be as joyful as it seems.
Unlike the Men of Yoshiwara games, this one offers complete voice actors, YASS! I was so happy I had to write a massive thank you email to D3P! nyan!
I’ve just recently picked up this game so I’ve yet to play any of the routes. I was thinking of starting with Koichiro since his voice was too sexy for attention.
Will be reviewing the game soon once I finish all the routes.
