Song Of Memories publisher Pure Wish has confirmed that its visual novel will be seeing a port on Nintendo Switch this year.
There has been no confirmation of a Western release as of yet, with the game currently only officially planned for the Japanese eShop. Luckily however, Song Of Memories will come with support for Japanese, English, and French languages – meaning that (thanks to the Switch being region free) Western players will be able to download and play the game with no problems.
Here are some extra details about the news, thanks to translation by Gematsu;
Song of Memories Novelization
This summer, a novel that follows the root of main heroine Fuuka Kamishiro called Song of Memories: Kakegae no Nai Mono (Something Irreplaceable) will be released in Japan. In addition to event stills featured in the game, the novel will use newly drawn illustrations on both the front cover and for some parts of the book.
Jun Hanazawa, who did character designs for the game, is doing the new illustrations. And Yasuyuki Mochida, who did the scenario for the game, is doing the story for the novel.
Song of Memories Overseas Version and Port
The PlayStation 4 version of Song of Memories that is currently available in Japan will be localized in English and French, and launch in North America and Europe this fall.
Additionally, a Switch version of the game with Japanese, English, and French language support will be released in 2017, and a Steam version will follow in 2018.
Song of Series Sequel
Following its first project, Song of Memories, Pure Wish is currently in planning of its second project. While AI characters such as those in Song of Memories will appear, further information has yet to be announced.
So there you have it; another game confirmed for release this year, and a visual novel at that. Is Pure Wish the sort of title that intrigues you, though? Let us know in the comments below!
