D3Publisher has revealed that Samurai Maiden will have a physical release on Switch in Japan, and not only that, but English is supported (along with Japanese, Chinese, and Korean).

We do know that the title is on track for a worldwide launch. However, currently it appears that Japan is the only region with plans for a physical edition. Since Switch is region free though, any owner can play the game on their system without any issues.

D3Publisher and Shade have shared a fourth character trailer for Samurai Maiden, this time focusing on Tsumugi Tamaori.

Tsumugi, an ordinary young woman living in the 21st century, is voiced by Yuki Yomichi. She was trained in swordsmanship by her grandfather at his dojo since she was a child, and because of this, she’s no stranger to the sword.

Samurai Maiden Komimi

A third character trailer is now in for Samurai Maiden, and we have a new look at Komimi.

Miyu Tomita voices Komimi, who is a master of onmyoji magic. It’s said that she “wields a colossal hammer with ease, encasing it in an icy air that sends shivers down her enemies’ spines.” D3Publisher adds: “Anyone wishing to brush Komimi’s tail must obtain her express permission first.”

A second character trailer has arrived for Samurai Maiden, this time showing Hagane.

Hagane, who is voiced by Sumire Uesaka, has a right arm that can extend and contract at will and also is capable of emitting a high-voltage current. She’s said to be supportive and nurturing to the women around her, and heaps affection on them while paying no mind to their blushing.
