Akai Ito & Aoi Shiro HD Remaster Nintendo Switch Physical Versions Announced for the West

Strictly Limited Games and SUCCESS CORP have announced that they are releasing limited box editions of Akai Ito & Aoi Shiro HD Remaster for Nintendo Switch. Further, this will be the only physical version of the game available worldwide.

Akai Ito and Aoi Shiro are a duology of Yuri mystery visual novels initially developed for the PlayStation 2. Neither game included sexual content in their previous releases as they focus more on the tragic aspect of the protagonists’ relationship.

In Akai Ito, we assume the role of Kei Hatou (CV: Matsuki Miyu), a young girl who’s friendly and carefree. After losing her family, she decides to visit the house in Hemizuka, originally her father’s. On the way there, she has a mysterious dream of a huge tree and a woman who seems wholly torn by sadness. She’ll soon find out it’s all connected to secrets hidden in Hemizuka.

Aoi Shiro tells the story of a 2nd-year student called Osanai Shouko (CV: Hidaka Noriko). As the ace of the Kendo team, she’s well-liked and constantly strives to be the best, but she gets teased often for being too serious. During the Summer, the kendo team decides to do a training camp at Shoushinji. Near there lies Urashima, an island rumored to be related to demon extermination long ago. When a mysterious girl washes up on the shore, hidden truths will come to light.

There are two physical editions fans can choose from:

“The Limited Edition is limited to a maximum of 2,500 copies for Nintendo Switch, at a price of 34.99€, including a colourful game manual.”
