Hana Awase tells the story of Mikoto, a young woman fascinated by card games, cooking, and sewing. Once she learns the Kasen game, a particular Hanafuda variation, she is allured by its depths but isn’t skilled in it. However, as part of a special academy focused on the game, she’ll have the chance to become a Minamo, a maiden who inspires the top male students known as the Gokou.
Part of the appeal of Hana Awase is its inspiration in classic Japanese poetry, with characters inspired by historical poets and poems. There are four games, each with one or two main characters, but they also include other short routes. The division is as follows:
- Mizuchi Volume;
- Himeutsugi Volume;
- Karakurenai/Utsutsu Volume;
- Iroha Volume.
Each volume offers a different universe with slight alterations to the characters’ personalities, traits, and functions. Despite that, playing them by release order is preferred to get the most out of the experience. The games also include a hanafuda-like minigame.
Hana Awase is written by Gekka with illustrations by Yura (Enzai, Luckydog1). The English translation will be edited by Mary Borsellino, who worked on various BL and otome projects before, such as Fashioning Little Miss Lonesome, Room No. 9, and Slow Damage. In addition, multiple translators are working on the game, including Tania Torres-Delgado, whose previous translations include Hashihime of the Old Book Town, UUUltraC, and The Patient S Remedy.
Hana Awase New Moon will launch for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023. We will be sure to keep you updated regarding further developments.
