Otome Detective Visual Novel ‘Collar X Malice’ Gets Switch Release Date in The West

Aksys Games announced that the Idea Factory developed Otome visual novels Collar X Malice will launch on Nintendo Switch on June 25, both digitally and physically.

The publisher has standard and limited editions available for $39.99 and $69.99 respectively. The Limited Edition comes with X-Day Incident Metal Coin, 1″ Adonis Enamel Pin, and Soundtrack with over 30 tracks.

Collar X Malice is a mystery visual novel that follows the main protagonist Ichika Hoshino, a cop who is out on patrol through the streets of Shinjuku, Tokyo. On this particular night, she is attacked and comes to find out that a strange color has been placed around her neck. Evidently, this is tied to a case that several former police offers have been investigating, and they all seem to be beautiful men. Throughout the story, Ichika must learn more about the collar and how to remove it without setting off the poison that resides within it, which could end her life.

The developer has already confirmed that the fandisc, Collar X Malice -Unlimited-, will also be coming west in August 2020. This will be the first time the game is available in English.

Collar X Malice is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
