Visual novel fans will have another reason to turn to their Nintendo Switch soon, as otome visual novel Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei comes to the console. Idea Factory International will be working on both a traditional and limited physical release, as well as a digital release for the title, which will include English subs with the original Japanese voice actors. More about the game below:
“Fifteen years after the Heiji Rebellion, the Heike clan has reached the height of its power, while the Genji clan remains devastated by defeat. Hidden deep within the mountains of Kurama lives Shanao, the youngest surviving male heir to the Genji name. However, Shanao harbors a deep secret known by very few.
The youngest heir to the Genji name is no man.
Torn between her duty to live up to the Genji family name and her desire to live a peaceful life, Shanao sets off in hopes to take down the Heike stronghold and finally bring peace in the country. Her adventure leads her to find new cherished relationships, as well as something deeper than the feud between the rivaling clans.”
The game is scheduled for release next summer.
