HuneX announced its next Switch otome game to appear in English will be Hana Awase New Moon. This entry is unique, as it originally appeared as four games in Japan. In addition to the visual novel elements, it also features Hanafuda card games.
In Hana Awase New Moon, people follow Mikoto as she gets acquainted with young men attending the Kasen National Academy. They’re the best players of the game and able to use special powers while playing. The Switch release includes a new Karabeni/Utsuku Volume story starring the two characters and Mikoto. It also includes English, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese subtitle options in addition to Japanese.
There’s also an initial trailer for this Switch otome game. However, rather than showing off how the Hanafuda elements will work, it mainly focuses on showing the love interests Himeutsugi, Iroha, Karakurenai, Mizuchi, and Utsutsu while the theme song “Wheel of Fortune” plays.
A few screenshots are available that show how both the visual novel and Hanafuda elements work in-game.
