I do have the PC version of this thanks to supporting the kickstarter, but should I double dip?

Well this is certainly good news for the people who do not have the game.

Hopefully, they make this an eShop release. I've never played any visual novels before.

The PC release was 4x3. I'd be pretty bummed if it's still like that on the very wide Switch screen.

The PS4 version was widescreen, so I expect the Switch version will be the same ratio.

that usually backfires since they often crop the images that weren't meant to be displayed in widescreen.
That would be the same as hoping Netflix to stream Evangelion in widescreen,you will NOT want that to happen...

I think it could easily be a config setting, no? It's the audio that takes up most of the space, not the images after all.

"Often", but not "always". When they adapted the Muv-Luv VNs for PS3, many of the backgrounds were redrawn in 16x9 rather than just being cropped, and that's the version we eventually got here for PC and Vita. Learning that Clannad has already had a PS4 release gives me some hope they'll do right by Switch.

Well clannad did get an xbox360 port 8-9yrs ago so it's not of the realm of possibility.

Based on the failing sales of the Xbox in Japan, I highly doubt it
