Publisher dramatic create and developer Operetta Due announced The Crimson Flower Divide: Lunar Coupling (Koezaru wa Akai Hana: Tsui no Tsuki) for Switch and PC for 2023 with language support in Japanese, English, and Chinese (Traditional and Simplified).
Originally released PC on September 7, 2012 in Japan as an R18 (adult) game. In March 2014, the some content was removed to make the game less adult for a a PSP version and then ported to PS Vita in June 2016. Due to the restrictions that Nintendo has for content in games, we should expect the Nintendo Switch version to be the toned down version. There is a high possibilty that the PC release will also be the same.
A land where women are scarce due to a fatal disease.
Naala, a girl who lives in the southern country Ruse, lost her only blood relative at a young age when her mother was stolen away by the Northern country Nasula. The one who supported her was her adored “older brother” and childhood friend Olli, who was to be the next king. Several years after that nightmarish night, Naala has been adopted by the royal family, and had begun passing her days peacefully as Olli’s fiancé. However, the nightmare returns with an attack by Nasula’s army to steal women.
The time for a decision approaches.
