Nightshade fans! It’s finally here! The Switch port we’ve all been waiting for!
To those who didn’t know, Nightshade (localized version) was initially released last April 12, 2017 for PC (Steam) platform in North America, Europe and Australia. Perhaps, due to the big Visual Novel Console move from the PS Vita to the Nintendo Switch – D3 Publisher has finally decided to release a Switch port for this game.
This game is also available in the PS Vita Console (Japanese only).
Finally! A Switch Otome game that’s worth every penny! (chuckles)

During the Sengoku Period the two main factions of ninja clans, Iga and Kōga, warred against each other for decades.
In the year 1593, Nobunaga Oda started the Tenshō Iga war, decimating most of the Iga ninjas in the process.
The very few that survived were absorbed into the Kōga clan, despite their past rivalries.
After 17 years the Sengoku Period finally came to an end, and Japan was unified.
Enju (Protagonist), daughter of Kandō Ueno, the Head of the Kōga clan, spends her days training diligently in hope of becoming a full-fledged ninja like her peers.
At long last she is assigned to her first mission, but finds herself caught in a dark conspiracy――.
Voice Actors include:
- Hikaru Midorikawa
- Wataru Hatano
- Hiro Shimono
- Kenjiro Tsuda
- Kosuke Toriumi
D3P International has yet to confirm a western release for this game, but since the physical and digital Japanese version already supports the English language, there is nothing holding us back from acquiring or playing this game on the Switch. Simply download the digital release in the Japanese Eshop or if you love physical copies, like I do… Importing the game or proxy shipping is always an option. ( ´ ▽ ` )
