In addition to thse titles Aksys Games also announced two brand-new interactive fiction (otome) releases, Piofiore (working title) and Cafe Enchante (Nintendo Switch™). In Cafe Enchante, a young girl inherits her grandfather’s eatery only to discover that none of the patrons are human.Piofiore follows the adventures of Lily, an orphan plunged into the center of a Mafia war in early twentieth century Italy.

We can expect Aksys Games to reveal further information on each of these titles in due time, but from our perspective the visual novels do sound the most interesting and will provide ideal entertainment on the Nintendo Switch.
