Upcoming English Otome Games for Nintendo Switch

Recently Bustafellows has released on the switch and steam, and we are already receiving so many announcements for upcoming otome titles. I’m looking forward to many of them (I also need more time to play ;~;)

1. Olympia Soiree

Release Date: September 9, 2021
Website: http://www.aksysgames.com/olympia/
Platform: Nintendo Switch

With her entire clan wiped out years ago, Olympia has been isolated for most of her life. Now she lives as the only person on Tenguu Island who can perform a ritual that restores light to a world shrouded in darkness. The heads of each Primary district– Red, Blue, and Yellow– lead a society governed by the island’s rigid class structure.

As Olympia travels between the districts, she discovers their wonders and their weaknesses, as well as an entire underground community of shunned individuals whom she becomes determined to help. If she can find the person destined to be her soulmate, she will finally be able to open her heart and reveal her true name, continue her bloodline, and save the world before it is destroyed.

An extraordinary, all-new adventure from Otomate, premier developers of unique story-based games with an all-star voice cast.

I’ve been interested in this game for a while now, and I was so excited when I received news on its localization. The art is gorgeous and the opening theme song is a must hear. So many characters just looking at the trailer.

Ever since she could remember, Akitsu Shino has had the ability to see what others could not: spirits, apparitions, and indescribable creatures. As an adult, this talent leads her to join a secret government agency: The Occult Action Department. Her assignment is with the Sixth Special Preventions Office, and her job is to monitor the powerful beings who travel between her world and the worlds beyond.

From her office in Sakuratani, a town in a different dimension, Agent Shino meets several otherworldly individuals with vastly different personalities and abilities: a nine-tailed fox spirit, a mischievous oni, and more. Part gatekeeper, part travel guide, she does her best to get to know these entities and keep them from getting into inter-dimensional trouble.
