Today 5pb. announced a Japanese release date for the Nintendo Switch port of Kono Yo No Hate de Koi o Utau Shoujo YU-NO, known in the west as YU-NO: a Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of This World.
We learn that the game will release in Japan on March 14, 2019. It will be priced at 6,800 yen for the physical version, and 6,000 for the digital download.
If you’re unfamiliar with the title, it’s a remake of a classic mystery/romance/dimension travel visual novel created by the late Hiroyuki Kanno.
It was originally released in 1996 for NEC PC-98, followed by Sega Saturn and PC. The remake itself released in Japan in March 2016 for PS4 and PS Vita.
At the moment we know that a localization for PS4 and PC is coming courtesy of Spike Chunsoft in 2019, but we have no word on whether the publisher is going to add the Nintendo Switch version as well.
The Switch port will include enhanced elements and a little nostalgic 8-bit side-scrolling minigame as a bonus.
On top of the game, we also get news on an anime series, which will be aired in Japan starting in April 2019.
