D3 Publisher is bringing another otome game to English audiences. Hyakka Hyakurou Sengoku: Ninpoujou, originally released on the PlayStation Vita, will be coming to Windows PCs via Steam as Nightshade. A collaboration between D3 Publisher and Red Entertainment, who’s also worked on Kenka Bancho Otome, it also features character designs from Teita, who English otome fans will recognize from Norn9: Var Commons. (Thanks, Aunna!)
Nightshade is inspired by historical events. Players follow Enju Ueno, daughter of the Koga Clan’s Kando Ueno. Following the Sengoku period and Tensho Iga war, she spends her time training to become a ninja. However, there’s trouble afoot, and she’ll have the opportunity to pursue five bachelors and work toward one of two different endings for each one in her search for the truth.
The PC release of Nightshade will feature Japanese voice acting. The following members of the cast have been revealed.
