Ports

Amnesia World for Nintendo Switch

Amnesia World, which first launched for PS VIta in May 2014, is coming to Switch on August 19 in Japan for 7,150 yen for the standard edition and 9,350 yen for the limited edition. Visit the official website here.

Here is an overview of the game, via VNDB:

This is a story set in a certain fictional world, in a certain fictional country, in a certain fictional town…

It all happened on August 1.

The protagonist woke up one morning to discover that she had lost all memory of anything before August 1st. She had no idea who she was, what life she had lead and her relationship with those around her. It was then when a young man who called himself a “spirit” appeared before her.

Him and the protagonist headed for her place of work, “Meido no Hitsuji (Sheep of the Other World).” She proceeds to work whilst covering up the fact that she’s an amnesiac.

A few days later…

Plans of the Meido no Hitsuji’s upcoming “concept event” gets around. Apparently, the particulars of this event were proposed by the protagonist herself before her memory loss. With no recollection of the event plans, and no knowledge of the details, the protagonist gets started on helping out her colleagues with the preparations…

In Amnesia World, the theme is “Parallel Worlds”. You’re able to choose different “worlds” to play in after the prologue: the “School World,” in which you’re a normal high school girl, the “Music World”, in which you work for a music company, and the “Criminal World,” in which you work at a detective agency. Alternatively you can stay in the “Normal World,” which is set in the “original” Amnesia world. Each world has a different atmosphere and gameplay.”

Hakuoki Shinkai: Reimeiroku

Hakuoki Reimeiroku, which first launched for PlayStation 2 in October 2010, followed by PSP in July 2011, DS in April 2012, PlayStation 3 in June 2012, and PS Vita in July 2015, is coming to Switch on August 26 for 6,930 yen for the standard edition and 9,130 yen for the limited edition. Visit the official website here.

Here is an overview of the game, via VNDB:

Years before the beginning of Hakuoki, the Shinsengumi was known as the Mibu Roushigumi. A wandering young man named Ibuki Ryuunosuke falls in with the group by chance just after they first come to Kyoto, and while grudgingly making friends with the members within, witnesses the dawning era of the Shinsengumi.
