WayForward Announces Rose & Camellia Collection
Five games’ worth of preposterous high-class slapfests are headed exclusively to Nintendo Switch!
High society is about to get a smackdown! In conjunction with Japanese developer NIGORO, we are excited to announce that we will be bringing Rose & Camellia Collection, the absurd one-on-one slap-fight anthology, exclusively to Nintendo Switch! Featuring five games, more than 30 characters, and all-new English voicework, Rose & Camellia Collection is scheduled to be published digitally in North America and Europe in late 2023 or early 2024. A trailer showcasing the ridiculous gameplay and gorgeous animated intro sequence (complete with vocal theme song) can be seen here!
Rose & Camellia Collection tells the tale of an over-the-top upper-crust inheritance battle spread across five games: Rose & Camellia, Rose & Camellia 2, crossover title Rose & Camellia vs. La-Mulana, and all-new entries Rose & Camellia 3 and 4 (debuting in this collection). As tensions and tempers rise amidst the division of family wealth and power, so do open hands, resulting in a series of ludicrous one-on-one slap battles between the all-female cast. Using either immersive Joy-Con motion controls or touch-screen swipes, you’ll smack some respect into your aristocratic adversaries by slapping, dodging, feinting, and countering until only one heiress is left standing.
Initially debuting in the early 2000s as a hit online Flash series, Rose & Camellia Collection marks the first time the saga will be available on a dedicated gaming console, providing the definitive versions of the included games by adding high-definition visuals, full English voiceovers (plus text in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Japanese), an anime-style opening, and two all-new vocal songs by frequent WayForward collaborator Cristina “Vee” Valenzuela. Complementing the single-player story mode, the collection also offers a new competitive two-player local versus mode, in which one player controls one of the heroines, and the other plays as one of the villains.
In addition to the digital version of the game available through the Nintendo Switch eShop, a glamorous physical version of Rose & Camellia Collection will be sold through publisher Limited Run Games; further details about the physical edition will be made on Limited Run’s channels in the future.
