The otome visual novel Luckydog1 is coming to the Switch on January 20, 2021. This game is published by Prototype Ltd. and developed by Tennenouji, and it will be priced at 5,200 yen on the Japanese eShop (it’s also getting a physical release for 6,160 yen).  

This game first released in 2009 for PC but has been ported to multiple systems since then. The publisher MangaGamer is planning an English release for PC in the future, so it’s possible that the Switch might see this English release as well at some point.

The upgraded version of Summer Pockets has received a release date of July 1, 2021 on the Switch in Japan. This upgrade is called Summer Pockets: Reflection Blue, and it includes new characters to play as, additional story routes for the original cast, accessibility options, and much more. 

If Switch owners already own the original game, Summer Pockets, they can upgrade to this new version for 3,000 yen. It will also be offered as a standalone game for 8,800 yen, and it has a physical version.


The teaser site for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2, the visual novel pack recently announced for Switch, is now live. The site doesn’t have much content besides a main page but there is some new information that is featured. 

The game will seemingly support the languages of Japanese, English, and simplified Chinese and will offer multiple play styles with support for touchscreen or single Joy-Con play. Additionally, an updated price of 2,000 yen has been assigned to the game for purchase.

There are quite a few otome visual novels on Nintendo Switch already, and another one will soon join their ranks. Gunka o Haita Neko will launch in Japan on June 18; it will cost 7,150 Yen. The game sees Tama, princess of a race of cat people, having to choose between an arranged marriage or finding love with a mysterious human that appeared from the sky. An English localization hasn’t been announced so far, and it’s fairly unlikely that will change. The game has been released on a few other platforms so far and all releases have been Japan-only.
