PLiCy, one of the major indie game platforms in Japan, has recently announced that Dormitory Love, a romance visual novel game previously released in Japan, will be released globally on April 28, 2023 on the Nintendo Switch. Pre-order sales will begin a week prior to that, on April 20. Furthermore, to celebrate the release, a special sale with a 15% discount will also be offered for a limited time.
Originally released in 2021 as a PC/Browser game, Dormitory Love has gained attention from many otome game lovers in Japan for its unique love stories of the heroine with foreign students from abroad. It has also won PLiCy’s ‘Honorable Game Award’ and was also selected as one of the 100 best games in 2022 on Freem, the biggest indie games platform in Japan.
In Dormitory Love, the protagonist, Jun Minase, suddenly finds herself working as a manager in a dormitory in Tokyo where students from overseas reside. Players can pursue a romance with six different characters: the calm and serious German Felix, the selfish femboy French Guillaume, the star basketball player Josh from the United States, the taciturn Chinese Ling with a mysterious background, the gentle and carefree photographer Russian Sasha, and the cynical British nerd Sean. From spring to the end of summer, players can enjoy seasonal events such as cherry blossom viewing, hot spring trips, water park visits, and summer festivals with the residents.
The developer also shared in-game screenshots. You can view them in our gallery below:
