Jack Jeanne Releases June 15 for Switch in the West

    Creator Sui Ishida shares his thoughts.

    Aksys Games and Broccoli announced otome visual novel/rhythm game hybrid Jack Jeanne launches June 15 for Nintendo Switch in the west. Pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch version are currently available now at the Aksys Games Store and participating retailers. Tokyo Ghoul mangaka and Jack Jeanne creator Sui Ishida also shared his thoughts about the upcoming release, which were relayed to Final Weapon by Aksys Games.

    Ishida was intrigued by the concept of Jack Jeanne after being pitched the ideas by developer Broccoli. Jack Jeanne’s story about students in a highly competitive musical theater school is a much different setting when compared to Tokyo Ghoul. Ishida’s passion for music inspired him to take on the project that would become Jack Jeanne. Further, he found great inspiration in “Light Dance” by Akira Kosemura and imagined the protagonist, Kisa, dancing to the song. 

    Ishida says his experience developing Jack Jeanne with Broccoli was “very precious.” While creating characters and the script of Jack Jeanne, he wanted the lyrics and music to convey their feelings. As a result, he decided to write the lyrics for the entire game himself. Nintendo Switch players will soon be able to experience Ishida’s vision for Jack Jeanne this summer.

    Here’s an overview of Jack Jeanne for Nintendo Switch via Aksys Games:
