Straight back to releasing games after Christmas, publisher Degica have confirmed they will be publishing their English localisations of Nurse Love Syndrome and Nurse Love Addiction on the Nintendo Switch from Boxing Day (26 December 2019). Both visual novels will be released as a digital exclusive via the Nintendo eShop.
First developed by Japanese developer Kogado Studio for the PlayStation Portable in 2011, Degica began working on the duology with their 2016 PC release of Nurse Love Addiction. Since then they have continued their localisation efforts, bringing both Nurse Love Addiction and Nurse Love Syndrome to both the PlayStation Vita and Windows PC. While taking a bit longer to arrive on the Nintendo Switch compared to the Japanese market, the wait is almost over.
Unlike quite a few visual novels on the market and despite what their titles may or may not imply, both Nurse Love Syndrome and Nurse Love Addiction are “all ages” friendly. Neither title has an adult-only version available in either Western or Japanese markets. That said, the titles do have some mature content, specifically: “Mild Blood, Mild Violence, Partial Nudity, Sexual Themes and Use of Alcohol“.
