The February 2022 All Aksys presentation revealed four upcoming Nintendo Switch Otomate otome games. Each one involved release window updates. Lover Pretend, Paradigm Paradox, and Piofiore Episodio 1926 will all appear in Fall 2022. The lone 2023 title is Kimi wa Yukima ni Koinegau.
Of the four games, Piofiore Episodio 1926 got the most attention. Following a peek at opening movies for all four games, the sequel to Piofiore’s limited edition ended up being discussed. That collector’s edition will give people a copy of the game, a cloth poster, a lily enamel pin, a keychain, and an art book. A price wasn’t mentioned. However, its pre-orders will open on February 18, 2022. As it was the only title with a special edition discussed, this could mean it will be the first of the three Fall 2022 Switch otome games to appear.
As a reminder, here are what the other three original games entail. Lover Pretend is about a script writer cast as the lead in a movie. Paradigm Paradox is a superhero-sort of otome. Kimi wa Yukima ni Koinegau is a period piece that involves a young woman who sees a “black thread” before terrible things happen.
Aksys will release the Idea Factory Otomate otome visual novels Lover Pretend, Paradigm Paradox, and Piofiore Episodio 1926 on the Nintendo Switch in Fall 2022.
