My guess is it will be for the Switch. But as long as the PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One versions get the ending, I am happy. Otherwise saying this now will only just be an insult to those who bought those versions unless this port happens a few years later.

In the end, it'll end up on mobile like the past games.

Of course someone would mention the box art.

lol I've been waiting for this since day 1 when he claimed "It's not part of the Science Adventure series."

Anybody with a pair of eyes would say something about the box art. Kind of sets a tone, regardless of what the game is about.

^ If it's your first time seeing it. If not, then you need to learn to move on since the box art is months old and has been shown in many ANN articles (and of course the game being out already).

Sounds like they're attempting to squeeze out a few more sales. Wasn't the initial sales numbers kind of iffy? It only sold 10,441 for PS4 and Vita combined (guess Xbox One's negligible)

Hopefully there's an English version coming out. Not really into visual novels myself, but I'd take a look and perhaps buy it just for the cover and screen caps on the Japanese version on Amazon alone.

And yes, this is the first time I've seen it.

Hopefully they bring it over to NA. Occultic;Nine is such a good series. I need that VN.

Somewhat petty reason to hate the IP.

Too much fan serves is a fine reason to hate any anime.

Yeah it really turns me off from it. Shame since Steins;Gate is still my personal "best visual novel ever".

Well, it's got my mouth hanging open because I couldn't tell if I was looking at "T" or "A".

lmao all these people are i wont say shocked but are rasing concerens about it clearly haven't seen the original(i think it was first?) anime.

Now I've nothing for or against fanservice but like her boobs in the series currently defy all laws of physics and I'm 1000% convinced that there is some deep dark secret hidden in them that will make the whole series better and lead into the true ending.

ok ok so full disclosure this isn't my favorite anime series and its the second to last in my personal ranking of the science adventure games(basically anything made by nitro) the very bottom goes to robotics;notes.
I'm all for them expanding the story behind it and everything but I'm not expecting much. Yuta was the 2nd worst protagonist I've had the displeasure of watching. Honestly If he was taken out of the picture or replaced I think the series would have been so much better since the other 8 main characters were mildly interesting and the story, as well as the story that they were going for was interesting even if sorta fizzled here and there.
