Review: The Men Of Yoshiwara: Kikuya (Switch eShop)

NSwitch DS the Men of Yoshiwara Kikuya 01

While weve seen all sorts of titles make their way to Nintendo systems in recent years, one genre thats been distinctly underrepresented - and largely confined to PlayStation Vita - are otome games: romance titles starring female protagonists and marketed to women. D3 Publishers The Men Of Yoshiwara: Kikuya is the first title on Switch to fill that role, and its an excellent and welcome start. An otome visual novel with a mature theme, erotic elements, and a well-rounded cast of courtesans to romance, its an enjoyable game and - occasional issues with the script and a bit of a budget feel aside - an easy recommendation if you've played something similar before.

NSwitch DS the Men of Yoshiwara Kikuya 02

The Men Of Yoshiwara: Kikuya opens as you, the heroine, sets out on an errand to deliver a package, on an island where all men work exclusively as courtesans, and women hold all other posts. On the way to your destination, you encounter a woman and her still-indentured lover attempting to elope to freedom on the mainland - a crime not met with leniency on this alternate-reality island. Moved by their plight, you help them find a boat to escape, and then take refuge in Kikuya, the titular house of ill repute where you meet the games six romanceable courtesans for the first time.

As well as starting you off on the lam, this intriguing setup also leaves you wide-open in terms of who to romance. Theres. At any time you are looking for more particulars about the most recent cracking technologies regarding Nintendo Console, click through here .Takao, the tall, confident, and cocky courtesan who wont let you forget hes the house favourite; Kagura, a calm, refined gentleman skilled in dance, calligraphy, and other classical entertaining arts; Tokiwa, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, and endlessly flirty foreigner; Kagerou, Kaguras novice apprentice and the resident sourpuss; Iroha, Kikuyas older, somewhat mysterious leader with a serious secret; and Hayabusa, the protagonists childhood friend and one-time boy next door.

Theres quite a lot of variety in the different courtesans at Kikuya, and its also easy to get to know them all. Unlike many otome games, where youll pick different routes (and who your character falls in love with) based on in-game dialogue choices and triggering different event flags, in The Men Of Yoshiwara, you simply select your path from a menu. After completing the prologue, which sets up the story and introduces you to the courtesans, youre free to jump around between all six routes as you like, with a bevy of save slots making it easy to bookmark your progress. As you read through each route, youll be presented with occasional dialogue choices. Your responses determine minor differences in the conversation, as well as your likability rating with your current partner; higher levels of likability unlock more event CGs and different endings.

As you might imagine, this ends up being quite a lot of courting; each courtesan has a 13-chapter main story, an epilogue, and a separate date event to his name. Chapters are bite-sized reads, between five and 15 minutes apiece, and each characters route rounds off to a very respectable two hours or so - a nice length that doesnt feel either drawn out or rushed. There are also a handful of extra side stories that act as additional epilogues for a few of the bachelors, with the welcome feel of fan-service DLC.

Of course, as with any story, a visual novel is best judged by how enjoyable it is to read, not how long that reading takes, and The Men Of Yoshiwara (mostly) provides the quality to back up its quantity. The characters are distinct and well drawn, and each individual route features notable character development - either for your chosen bachelor, the protagonist, or both - as well as lots of steamy payoff throughout.

And it certainly is steamy! The Men Of Yoshiwara: Kikuya easily earns its Mature rating through prose alone, from suggestive innuendo all the way through to outright raunch, and there are scores of scenes engineered to make you blush. On the subject of blushing, its worth noting that the sex scenes tend to be written from the 'innocent heroine embarrassed at her lovers boldness' perspective, so if that take-charge approach is (or isnt) your kink, you may be more (or less) inclined to enjoy whats on offer at Kikuya.

The writing itself is generally of a good standard, and while its not the most memorable or literarily ambitious visual novel weve come across, its still an enjoyable read free of the awkward wording or sentence structures that can plague poorly translated titles. The sole exception is that some of the side stories are of a significantly lesser standard, poorly written and puzzlingly phrased. Its particularly notable since these side stories tend towards the more explicit end of things, and theres no turn off quite like a lack of quality control. Apart from those unfortunate dips, we also encountered the odd encoding issue throughout - being introduced as 'SleeperMorgan' and once as '.', for instance - but overall, the main story is well written and error-free.

NSwitch DS the Men of Yoshiwara Kikuya 05

Aesthetically, The Men Of Yoshiwara relies on an appealing neon-and-sakura effect. Its colourful and sleek, with both traditional Japanese and modern fantasy trappings. The character portraits are the main focus, and theyre very well done, with particular attention paid to the courtesans elaborate kimonos. As mentioned with the leading designer community relating to StarGate 3DS .The CGs youll unlock as you play are also impressive, with a warm watercolour style that fits the tone of the story. Less memorable are the generic-looking backgrounds, which feel sparse and distinctly low-budget. The game also suffers from characters beyond the main bachelors being completely invisible, which unfortunately highlights those backgrounds during many scenes.

The music follows the same modern-traditional style as the visuals: wistful melodies in pentatonic scales played on synth-kotos and backed by strings and digital percussion. Its nice, but theres not very much of it, and over the course of even a single route the soundtrack becomes rather repetitive; transitions between pieces are also awkwardly jarring. Theres no voice acting, which is a shame, and sound effects are minimal, but that also means you can play without audio and still get nearly the full experience a boon for quick reading on a commute or lunch break.


As the first otome game on Switch, Men Of Yoshiwara: Kikuya is both excellent proof of concept and an enjoyable piece of electronic erotica in its own right. With a memorable cast of courtesans, a generous amount of content split over several discrete routes and sub-scenarios, and affection-based unlockables, theres plenty here to keep you busy and blushing. The backgrounds and music give off a bit of a budget feel, and occasional text encoding issues and some steep (but infrequent) quality drops are blemishes on an otherwise well-written script, but overall, wed certainly recommend a trip to Kikuya for otome fans.

Wed, 03 May 2017 05:52:36 +0100Nintendo Unveils Full Zelda DLC

Hailed by both critics and audiences as one of the most ambitious videogames Nintendo has ever produced, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has earned universal acclaim. The massive open-air adventure will soon receive even more engaging content with the Expansion Pass - comprised of two planned DLC packs for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions. The first pack, called The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - The Master Trials, launches this summer, and the second launches Winter 2017, with the two packs only available as a bundle for a price of £17.99/19.99. The first pack of downloadable content will add Trial of the Sword and a challenging new Hard Mode to the game, as well as other fun and useful features. Don't forget to read Cubed3's reviews of the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the new Zelda. Additionally, a free software update is available today that will let players experience the game in one of nine audio languages whilst keeping the on-screen text language set to the native language of choice (options include: Japanese, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Russian. To enable this feature in the Wii U version, it is necessary to download a voice pack from Nintendo eShop). Here is a breakdown of everything The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - The Master Trials has to offer: Trial of the Sword: By accessing this location, you can challenge the new Trial of the Sword (previously known as "Cave of Trials") where enemies appear one after another. Link starts without any armour or weapons, and if he can defeat all of the enemies in the room, he can proceed to the next area. Trial of the Sword will include around 45 rooms in total for players to complete. When Link clears all of the trials, the power of the Master Sword will be awakened, and it will always be in its glowing powered-up state while useable. Hard Mode: Fans looking for a new challenge are in for a treat with the new Hard Mode. In Hard Mode, the "ranks" of enemies in the game are increased (i.e. Red Bokoblins change to Blue), and you may even encounter higher-ranking enemies you won't find through normal play. Enemies will also slowly recover health in battle, forcing you to defeat them more quickly, and will more easily spot Link as he approaches them, making them tougher to sneak up on. In addition, floating planks held aloft by balloons will be scattered around Hyrule. By successfully reaching these planks, players can battle enemies and collect treasure. Hero's Path Mode: Exploring Hyrule is exciting, but with such a large world it's sometimes hard for players to remember where they have been. To help with tracking progress, the new Hero's Path Mode will document every step players take and mark their path in green on the map. The route taken will be tracked for the player's last 200 hours of play time, with an included slider to track footsteps on a timeline. This even works retroactively, so players that have already put many hours into the game will be able to see where they have travelled. This feature will help identify locations in this vast world that haven't been visited yet, and may help players find those Shrines they haven't encountered yet. Korok Mask: By finding the new Korok Mask, players will have a much easier time finding Korok locations in the game. When equipped, the mask will shake, indicating that a Korok is hidden somewhere nearby. Travel Medallion: There will be a new treasure chest somewhere in the game world, which contains the Travel Medallion. With the Travel Medallion, players can create a temporary new travel point on the map where they are currently standing. Link can then transport himself to that point at any time. Only one Travel Medallion travel point can be registered on the map at a time. New Equipment: Eight new pieces of equipment, inspired by previous characters and games in the series, will be added to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild after downloading the first DLC pack. Once discovered by the player, they will yield equipment themed after fan-favourite games and characters, such as Midna, Tingle, Phantom, and Majora's Mask. More information about the second DLC pack will be revealed in the future. All DLC is available for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game. .
