The year is 1864, at the end of the Edo period. A group of men bravely took action to extinguish a burning house. Those men were part of a group called the Shinsengumi. In order to protect the city of Kyoto, they would rush to any place that needed them. The curtain rises on the crusade of the members of the Shinsengumi, whose hearts burn as passionately as a the flames they fight…
Right now, these titles are only confirmed to release in Japan and neither Idea Factory International nor Aksys Games (who’s known for localizing most of Otomate’s titles) confirmed whether they’ll be bringing these games in Europe and North America. *crossing fingers*

Note: I wrote this around early February (2018) and forgot to publish. I am fully aware that there are now at least three new otome games for the Switch Console. The recent one that was just released was The Charming Empire.
The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya
Release Date: Feb 1, 2018 Digital Download of the NSwitch game here.
I can’t believe we are finally getting the first ever Otome Game for the Nintendo Switch! Thanks to D3Publisher Inc. they have just released The Men of Yoshiwara (localized) for the Nintendo Switch Port. This is nothing but awesome news to Nintendo Switch owners who are huge fans of otome games.
Another good news is that they’re also porting the sequel for this game: The Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya. They don’t have the release date for it yet, but the game is probably under wraps for completion by now since it’s already in their Nintendo Switch page.
EDIT: The game was just recently released around Mar. 8, 2018. Click the link above for its digital download. ^^
One tiny gripe I have for this Switch game though is that they ported the PC version instead of the one in Vita. PS VITA, of course, gets character voices, a bonus character, and a physical version of the game. As expected, from being the ultimate Visual Novel console, the PS VITA gets more goods.
But then again… even though the switch gets an inferior version of the game, as long as I get to see my hot courtesan boyfriends dominating my 55″ tv screen, I don’t really mind…
The game so far
I just picked up the digital download of the game recently so I’ve yet to play all the routes but I’ll make sure to do a separate post of my own personal review of the game soon. But, le’mme tell you right now, this game is STEAMY af! omg I have no regrets nyan!
