Today Japanese publisher Prototype announced that the classic visual novel Clannad is going to get a Nintendo Switch release.
The game will release in Japan in the spring of 2019, and it will be download-only on Nintendo’s eShop.
Like the recent PS4 release, it will include both English and Japanese text, but audio will, of course, be only in Japanese. It will also include a 5.1 surround soundtrack.
If you’re unfamiliar with Clannad, it was originally released as an eroge for Windows in 2004. It’s extremely popular in Japan, especially among the previous generation of gamers, alongside other games by Key like Kanon and Air.
Considering that the game includes English text, it’ll be easy for western gamers to import it even if it doesn’t get a North American and European release.
A teaser website has also been opened, even if it doesn’t include much in term of content.
This is not the only visual novel coming to Nintendo Switch. Just recently 5pb. announced YU-NO: a Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World and Steins;Gate Divergencies Assort, which will include Steins;Gate sequel Steins;Gate 0, side-stories bundle Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram and romantic spin-off Darling of Loving Vows.
