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) image

STORY:
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

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. ( ´ ▽ ` )

She is quite excited about starting her new school life, but she stumbles upon a secret night club that is being operated after school hours, and gets herself roped into working the kitchen…

As she grows closer to the other waitstaff of the night club, she learns of their past, and finds herself becoming more and more involved in a complicated web of human relationships and romance…

 

VOICED? YES

Voice Actors includes fan favorite: Yuuichirou Umehara, Kousuke Toriumi, KENN and Kensho Ono.

I bought the mobile version of Gakuen Club last year in iTunes and although I enjoyed it’s art, music and outstanding VA’s, the story was pretty dull and boring so I never really got a chance to finish the entire game (only bought and finished Sakai’s route). I’m buying this game again for my Switch and hopefully finish all the routes this time but I won’t be expecting too much plot wise, ha! you shouldn’t either. lol

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)
