Jack Jeanne, a drama-themed otome visual novel game created in conjunction with Tokyo Ghoul artist Sui Ishida, has a Western release date at last. The game is heading to Nintendo Switch on June 15th, and will offer you the chance to pick it up in one of three special editions as well as the base version.

Publisher Aksys originally revealed that Jack Jeanne was heading West all the way back in March last year, but we now thankfully have a release date for the game. You play as Kisa, an acting hopeful who's about to ditch her dream when she's unexpectedly given the chance to enrol in a drama school. Of course, it's not as simple as it first seems. You can check out Aksys' original Western announcement trailer for Jack Jeanne right here.


Kisa's enrolment in the Univeil Drama School is contingent on two conditions. First, she must be chosen as the lead in the school's end-of-year performance. Second, she must hide the fact that she's a girl, since Univeil is an all-boys school. As she studies, she'll bond with her classmates and develop relationships with them. It wouldn't be much of an otome game without relationship-building, now would it?

In addition to the base game, which will set you back $49.99, Aksys has also created three tiers of special edition for Jack Jeanne. The Bronze Edition comes with an art book, a scarf with class insignias, a set of pins, and a diorama, and it'll cost you $99.99. The Silver Edition adds a convertible black pouch and an extra $20 on top of the Bronze Edition, and the $139.99 Gold Edition nets you a T-shirt with protagonist Kisa on it in addition to everything in the previous two tiers.

Jack Jeanne launches for Nintendo Switch in the West on June 15th. Watch this space for more info.
