Aksys Games Announces Upcoming Otome Titles for Nintendo Switch™

Otherworldly hijinks, a marriage gambit, and an epic quest for love in store for the #OtomeArmada


Torrance, Calif. — December 1, 2020 —
Aksys Games today announced that they will be bringing three new otome titles from Idea Factory to English-speaking regions. In addition to Code: Realize ~Wintertide Miracles~, slated for release in February 2021, Aksys plans to launch Olympia Soirée, Dairoku: Ayakashimori and Variable Barricade on Nintendo Switch™ next year.

“The Nintendo Switch is an ideal platform for visual novels,” said Akibo Shieh, founder and CEO of Aksys Games. “So many more people are discovering otome on the Switch and we are excited to deliver more popular and highly regarded games to English-speaking audiences.”

Olympia Soirée – One of the last of her clan, Olympia seeks to perform a ritual to return light to a darkened world. Struggling within this society's strict class system, she must find a partner to help her bring unity to the land.

Dairoku: Ayakashimori (English title pending) – Shino's ability to perceive ghosts lands her a job with the secret government agency tasked with overseeing the supernatural yokai. But even she is not prepared for an assignment to a wonderous, hidden world where she must unify and watch over the yokai.

Variable Barricade – Hibari's wealthy grandfather is determined to find her a husband… and she's just as determined not to accept! Will being forced to live in a luxurious villa with the hand-picked suitors result in an engagement?

Olympia Soirée, Dairoku: Ayakashimori and Variable Barricade have not yet been rated by the ESRB. To stay on top of all the news, join the Aksys Games Otome Fan Club newsletter here.
