The slaptastic showdown begins on April 16!

Prepare to slap your way to the top of high society! Independent game studio WayForward, in conjunction with Japanese developer NIGORO, is delighted to announce that Rose & Camellia Collection, the ludicrous one-on-one slap-fight anthology, will be released digitally in North America and Europe on April 16, 2024. Featuring five distinct games, a 2-player versus mode with more than 30 characters, and the choice of English or Japanese VO, Rose & Camellia Collection is rated T and will be available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

As Rose & Camellia Collection begins, young widow Reiko must prove herself worthy of leading the Tsubakikoji family by engaging in a time-honored noble pastime — a series of slap battles! This over-the-top inheritance dispute evolves into increasingly outlandish scenarios, including the “Death Queen Circuit” world tour, a battle against relentless solicitors, and a crossover with NIGORO’s La-Mulana game series. As they cross hands with muscular maids, ghoulish spirits, stone-masked enforcers, and even a hulking mecha, players will use Joy-Con motion controls or touch-screen swipes to smack some respect into their adversaries by slapping, dodging, feinting, and countering their way to victory. Complementing the single-player story mode is a competitive two-player local versus mode, in which one player controls one of the heroines and the other plays as one of their rivals.

In addition to the digital version of the game available through the Nintendo Switch eShop, a fabulous physical version of Rose & Camellia Collection will be offered through publisher Limited Run Games; additional details about the physical edition’s contents and availability window will be revealed in the near future.

Hello! I'm Natsumi Vélez, editor and part of I focus on finding the most exciting news. I have been a player for as long as I can remember, I know how to defend Pokémon names well, but generation 5 is my favorite of all besides Pokémon X Y and I always chose Snivy and Fennekin in those two games.
