Our Secrets of Me Switch Review looks at another erotic graphic novel game by Dogenzaka Lab. While the developer self-published the title on Steam, D3 Publisher brought it to the Nintendo Switch on 24 September 2020. It contains sexually suggestive scenes with a few hints of nudity.
If you’ve been following our reviews, you’ll realise we’ve covered a few D3 Publisher games. The reviews so far include Disease Hidden Object, Bullet Girl Phantasia, My Butler and Office Lovers. The publisher loves sharing its games with us, and we enjoy playing them. They’re definitely different from the ‘normal’ games out there.
So, what is the game about, and which features does it have? Are there nude scenes, and do you get to have sex? You’ll have to read our Secrets of Me Switch Review.

|Genre:||Erotic Graphic Novel|
|File size||395 MB|
You are a lady protagonist in the story. However, having played most of the game, we’re going to say that she’s perhaps not a hero in the true sense of the word. There was a twist we didn’t see coming, but we’ll explain a bit more of that in this Secrets of Me Switch Review.
You choose the name for your character, so it’s best not to put a male name, except for giggles. You wake up from plastic surgery, your eyes closed, while a doctor jokes about putting a thermometer up your… in Uranus. Once you’re out of your sleepy state, the game begins properly.
So, the main story for our Secrets of Me Switch Review revolves around this girl who is obsessed with Ichiro Yamada. After all, that’s why she gets the surgery in the first place. She basically replaced most of her body parts to look sexier.
She also happens to be a budding private eye. Using her detective skills, she realises that Yamada is a scam artist, having tricked many women into marrying him, and then taking their money. Infuriated, she goes on a mission of her own.
Her new goal: steal men away from their girlfriends. The first chapter begins when you select a male character to pursue. There are five males in total, and each has their own storylines to them.
Seduce, get naked, have sex…
While we’re not going to promote any form of behaviour in our Secrets of Me Switch Review, it should be clear that you should keep your daughters away from this game. However, since many of us have encountered people like this in real life, it was interesting to see what it would be like as a woman pursuing taken men.
We suggest you take the developer’s advice. Only play this game if:
- You want to fall in love with a handsome guy.
- You like romance novels, manga, or TV shows.
- You like romance games.
- You’re interested in plastic surgery.
- You like unusual romance games.
When it comes to the gameplay for our Secrets of Me Switch Review, it should be no-brainer that the game mechanics includes lines and lines and lines and lines of endless text. Fans of erotic novels will love this game, and you can also have it autoplay so that the game can scroll through the text for you.
There are times where you’ll need to make choices. Make sure you save before you decide. Each decision has a consequence, and you may not enjoy the outcome. Load the saved file and choose again.
We’ve become used to this kind of gameplay now with graphic novels, so there were no surprises for our Secrets of Me Switch Review. We did find it odd that there were long reading stints between critical decisions than other titles like My Butler and Office Lovers. There’s more of a focus on the story and sex scenes here.
Of course, this isn’t Grand Theft Auto. While Japes is spending his time enjoying memories of the The Absolute 6 Best Grand Theft Auto Games of All time, we were hoping to get in on some of the action. While the coffee may not be as hot, we saw more fade to blacks than sexual escapades.
That doesn’t mean the gameplay is all that bad, we feel like saying for our Secrets of Me Switch Review. As a matter of fact, fans of manga and graphic novels will absolutely love this title. It’ll warm you up in the right places, and you’ll be thankful for the autoplay function eventually if you get excited by erotic literature.
Just keep a Switch screen wipe nearby…
Dogenzaka Lab brings out the great Japanese designs once again for this Secrets of Me Switch Review. We’ve fallen in love with their art designs. Perhaps it’s cause we don’t know any better, but these guys know how to draw. The colour, the shading, the settings… they’re all amazing.
There were some scenes that looked close to realistic, we believe for our Secrets of Me Switch Review. We recall an outside scenario on the streets where it actually looked like a location in Japan. In any event, these artists are in a class of their own.
Just… stop fading to black…
Sounds is another Secrets of Me Switch Review component worth praising. You’ll hear familiar instrumentals from manga shows, some of which I’m sure I’ve heard somewhere before (hentai?).
However, that’s as far as the sound element for our Secrets of Me Switch Review goes. We wish there was voice acting, besides the occasional orgasmic moan, but alas. Them voices, we knew them well. Or not.
We don’t blame the developer, though. With so much text, who would want to act them out? Also, with the ability to skip dialogue, what would be the point. It wouldn’t be a good return on investment, paying voice actors for skipped text.
Secrets of Me Switch Review: Final Verdict
Being a horror writer and a fan of horror games, playing a game like this for our Secrets of Me Switch Review is definitely… intriguing. I loved Diseased Hidden Object the most from D3 Publisher’s titles, but their graphic novels are starting to grow on me.
Our Secrets of Me Switch Review uncovered that there’s more story here than in the other erotic graphic novel titles. There’s also more text to scroll through, so you need to be an avid reader to enjoy the gameplay. Graphics are once again of ultimate Japanese quality, while we’d like some voice acting at some point. The Japan instrumentals are cool, though.
Is Secrets of Me for the Switch worth buying at £13.49? Only if you’re into manga, looking for handsome guys, stalking, romance, or plastic surgery. ?
