Publisher NekoNyan has opened the eShop store page for the Switch version of Senren Banka. The Yuzusoft visual novel will be available on Nintendo’s platform on May 27, 2022, but eager enthusiasts can already preorder the title digitally for $ 31.49. A physical edition hasn’t been announced by the company at this time.
Senren Banka takes place in an isolated village deep in the mountains called Hoori. Surprisingly, the fact it is hard to get there ended up making the place a popular tourist spot, as people are drawn to its cozy, countryside charm. Of particular note is a special, divine sword called Murasamemaru, which is stuck in a stone and no one was able to take it out. That is, until the protagonist, Arichi Masaomi does and unfortunately breaks it in half.
Now he needs to pay for what he’s done, forcing him to being engaged to the shrine maiden princess Tomotake Yoshino (voiced by Haruka Sora). However, there’s more to it, as Masaomi finds out a curse is afflicting the village and there are other mysterious events at play.
There are multiple routes, leading players not only to a romance with Yoshino but also with three other girls. Those are the transfer student Lena Liechtenauer (voice: Sawa Sawasawa), the blade caretaker Murasame (voice: Mikan Satou), and the ninja bodyguard Hitachi Mako (voice: Kotorii Yuuka).
