There has been no shortage of visual novels on the Switch, and that includes the Otome (story-based video game that is targeted towards women) genre. In an interview with GameSpark, a representative for game retailer GEO talked a bit about this genre getting more and more representation on Switch.

According to GEO, Otome devs and publishers are currently in the trial-and-error phase of bringing their games to Switch. Those devs were used to working with Vita, but have sense moved on, and are finding success on Switch. The movement started with a lot of ports and remasters, but GEO believes the Switch will start to see more original Otome games this year.
