English Otome Games for Nintendo Switch in 2020
After the devastating announcement by Sony about stopping their production of games for the Playstation Vita, Otome gamers around the world were saddened about this and until now, this news has been around especially to the Otome Games community.
As someone who loves the PS Vita, I felt the intense disappointment and decided to buy a Nintendo Switch for myself to keep updated on the upcoming Otome Games for the consoles. And since Otome game companies from Japan have started converting their games to Switch, we recently got news from Aksys Games that they will localize some of the popular Otome games around.
If you are not familiar, Aksys Games is one of the companies who localize Japanese games in English, and most of them are Otome games such as Code: Realize, Norn9: Var Commons, Psychedelica games, Collar X Malice, Bad Apple Wars and Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ which are all available in Playstation Vita and some are on Steam.
During the Anime Expo that happened last July, Aksys Games released the news about the localization of some Japanese Otome games into the English language for the Nintendo Switch. I myself got hyped about the news! Let's list down the English Otome games to look forward this coming 2020!
Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth and Future Blessings~
One of the best Otome games around with the Steampunk theme! Code: Realize has been localized in English, not just its first installment (~Guardian of Rebirth~) but also its fan discs titled Code: Realize ~Future Blessings~ and ~Wintertide Miracles~. Aside from that, Guardian of Rebirth and Future Blessings has been combined into one PS4 game titled Code: Realize ~Bouquet of Rainbows~. Since Nintendo Switch has become the next home for Otome Games, Code: Realize will have its Nintendo Switch port in 2020.

Collar X Malice: Unlimited
The police/investigation/mystery-themed Otome game Collar X Malice was localized into the English language as well for PS Vita. It was totally shocking news that Aksys Games will release the fan disc of the game titled CollarXMalice: Unlimited. This title has had so many positive reviews and hearing that the fan disc will be localized into English for the Switch port is a dream come true for Otome Gamers!

Cafe Enchante / Gensou Kissa Enchante
Fantasy and cafe themed Otome game. Yay! Cafe Enchante is one of the Otome games that I am eyeing to get but didn't expect to be localized. But well, it will happen soon! This game will be localized in English through Switch as well.
If you are not familiar, Cafe Enchante is a story about the lovely heroine who inherited her grandfather's cafe. To her surprise, she found out that the customers are not human themselves. She encountered different mythical men who call themselves as "Demon Kings."
Piofiore no Banshou
Literally made me scream after I saw this news! Piofiore no Banshou... I really didn't expect that Aksys Games will localize this! Mafia-themed Otome game which some of the reviews said that the story is dark but amazing. This game will also be available for Switch in English too. (Thank you, Aksys Games!)
These are the list of upcoming Otome Games in English for Nintendo Switch. All of them are expected to be released in 2020 so fellow Otome gamers have the chance to save money and buy a game once it is released.
We will be updating this article once we see news about other possible games to be localized in English.
