Otome Games fans, rejoice! Today D3Publisher announced that the otome visual novel The Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya (Gyakuten Yoshiwara: Ohgiya-Hen) will release on the Nintendo Switch.

For now, the port of the otome visual novel has been announced only for Japan, where it will be released this winter. That being said, it’s already available in English on Steam, so it’s not unlikely that it’ll come west for the Switch as well.

The story is set in the famous Yoshiwara pleasure quarters in Edo (modern-day Tokyo) but reversing the roles of men and women. Basically, the men of the game are courtesans, and they will vie for the attentions of the female protagonist.

This is actually the second game of the series, with the first being Buy The Men of Yoshiwara: Kikuya, which was also released on Steam, mobile and PS Vita. Now it’s time for the series to make the jump to another portable.
