Prototype has just announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Taisho x Alice: Heads & Tails, the fandisc of the Primula-developed Taisho x Alice otome game will be officially getting a free update patch that will add in the ability to switch between Japanese and English text on September 21. It’s possible that the game will also be released on the western eShop that same day, given the publisher’s track record.
Furthermore, physical copies of the game will be restocked on September 25, and these copies will contain a sticker that indicates that the English patch is built into the cartridge, like below:
In addition to this, the English patch for the Taisho x Alice: All in One game compilation on Nintendo Switch, which was previously a paid DLC, will be made free starting on September 14, allowing any owners of the game to download it at no added cost.
Taisho x Alice: Heads & Tails is a fandisc that expands the story with a variety of new content. On the Heads side, there are afterstories for all the couples from the previous episodes so players can enjoy an extra time of Yurika interacting with the boys. There’s also a “what if” scenario showing all of the characters in a school AU.
On the Tails side, we get to see the perspectives of Woolfe and Ryoushi as they investigate the mystery. I won’t go into further details for spoiler reasons but people who finished Taisho x Alice: Epilogue should know what is going on. It’s also important to know beforehand that these routes are not romantic in nature, though they will likely offer some teases nonetheless.
Taisho x Alice tells the story of Yurika Arisu, a young girl who finds herself in a dark place without memories. There she meets a young man called Alice, and finds out some weird glasses that seem to lead into a Looking-Glass World where things are slightly weird. This topsy-turvy world features beautiful young men, some of which are genderbent versions of famous fairy tale characters such as Snow White and Cinderella.
On the other side of the mirror, Yurika finds herself doing her best to save these “princes”. Sold on PC in an episodic format, the ideal route order follows the release order as players go deeper into the rabbit hole of the narrative. Publisher Prototype also released a complete version of all four main episodes called Taisho x Alice: All in One on Switch.
