Iris School of Wizardry -Vinculum Hearts- is another game by by OperaHouse and DIGIMERCE that released in English on October 11th, 2018. It was originally a mobile game back in 2014 and got a Nintendo Switch release in Japan back in August 2nd, 2018. So it took about 2 months for an English release which makes for an interesting timeline.
If you haven’t read my post on their previous game with English ‘translation’ (Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku), the translation is pretty bad. Bad to the point where it is hard to read. Iris School of Wizardry suffers the same bad quality of translation where the translation hasn’t improved nor become worse than Ayakashi Koi Gikyoku.
I was contacted by DIGIMERCE to review this game, I was intending to review it anyway, but keep in mind I won’t pull any punches when reviewing this game. I’ll try not to focus too much on the translation for the story/route review parts but I will focus on it very heavily at the end of the post where I sum up all my thoughts.
