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――.

There is only one way to break the curse.

―A kiss from the person you truly love.
In order to break the curse, everyday as a human, and every night as a cat, you put forth all your efforts.

The game’s english patch was originally scheduled for late October, but because of some delays, they’ve decided to release the game’s localized version on a later time. Hopefully this delay happened due to some intense proof reading  of the game by a native speaker! *chuckles*

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

 

More Upcoming Nintendo Switch Otome Games from OperaHouse to look out for (These games are either announced or released in Nintendo Eshop Japan):

Code Realize Wintertide Miracles Localization Confirmed

coderealize

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:
