Broccoli has announced Jack Jeanne, a “girls opera” game from Tokyo Ghoul creator Sui Ishida coming to Switch in 2020 in Japan.
Jack Jeanne consists of simulation and rhythm game parts. During simulation parts, the player deepens their bonds with classmates as protagonist Kisa Tachibana while aiming for the lead role in the school play at the end of the year. During rhythm game parts, the player can enjoy dance performances with 3D characters.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
Tamasaka is an opera troupe consisting only of men, who also play women. The troupe owns the Univers Opera School, which raises actors while putting on performances. Every performance invites the audience to an overwhelmingly flashy world and never fails to keep their attention.
The talented students of the hard-to-enter school are broken up into four classes to study theater, as well as compete for the title of Top Class at Univers.
The protagonist, Kisa Tachibana, who had given up on a life of theater, receives special permission to attend Univers Opera School following a certain event as long as she fulfills two conditions.
One of those conditions is to star in the final performance at the end of the year.
The other is to hide the fact that she is a woman…
To make her dreams come true, and to help her pupils, the protagonist will deepen her bonds with the classmates that become her “cogs.”
What future awaits the protagonist after spending the year with her classmates…?
