In a lot of ways this is improved from Kikuya in a lot of important ways even though it isn’t as content rich. The lower asking price definitely helps. If you only have a Switch and want to sample the Otome genre, this is a nice entry point.
The Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya is a pretty little romance game which does everything adequately, but not exceptionally. It's a little light on content, some of the bachelor's stories aren't terribly interesting or engaging, and it would really benefit from some additional background and character art, but benefits from beautiful splash art and a stronger female protagonist than the last Yoshiwara title.
As a premise, the Men of Yoshiwara games are something we should see more of - novels and particularly decide-your-destiny type books would be more than welcome on Nintendo's system. There's not enough new here to justify a purchase if you already have the first game, though - go for one or the other unless you're a genre fanatic.
SummaryThe Men of Yoshiwara: Ohgiya is a popular romance game in Japan aimed at a female audience. Step into the pleasure district of Yoshiwara with the roles of male and female reversed and enjoy a heart-rending love story. [Nintendo]
