Called a monster and banished from her village, Suzuno finds herself in the midst of a supernatural battle against evil
Aksys Games revealed the exclusive set of seven full-color character cards that will be included in all first run copies of the upcoming, historically-set, mystical otome title Winter’s Wish: Spirits of Edo, launching for Nintendo Switch™ on May 18th.
The first year of the Kyoho era. The land is ruled by the eighth shogun Yoshimune Tokugawa. Repeated incidents caused by monsters in the town of Edo upset and frighten the people, so the Tokugawa shogunate establishes the “Oniwaban” to maintain public order and secure the town.
Eleven years later, a girl born with special powers in a village far from Edo has been driven out into the snowy mountains by the terrified townspeople. The reason? Without fail, the girl sees “black Threads” whenever a disaster will occur, her unsettling ability predicting calamities with absolute certainty.
One day, men claiming to be members of the mysterious Oniwaban appear before her, saying she is needed in Edo. Soon, the girl’s power, which previously only brought her misfortune, will become an invaluable asset to the Oniwaban and their efforts against the monsters…
Key features of Winter’s Wish: Spirits of Edo include:
- A fantasy set in historical Japan in the spirit of the first localized console otome game, Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom
- A moving, emotional tale with gorgeous visuals and multiple endings to discover
- Choose from one of three different Oniwaban divisions for the heroine to join and get to know her colleagues. Be careful – they may not all be human!
Winter’s Wish: Spirits of Edo has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB. For more information, visit www.aksysgames.com/winterswish/.
