PS4 version slated for summer; Switch version slated for July in Europe

Neko Works announced on Tuesday that CFK's PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions of Neko Works' Nekopara Vol. 1 game have been delayed in some regions. The PS4 version has been delayed from July 4 to a general summer 2018 release window in Japan, North America, and Europe. The Nintendo Switch version has been delayed from July 4 to a general July release in Europe, but the version will launch as planned in Japan and North America on Wednesday. Neko Works cited "various circumstances" as the cause of the delay.

In addition, CFK began streaming a promotional video for the upcoming releases on Friday, followed by a second promotional video on Tuesday.

Neko Works had announced in June that the game would launch for PS4 and Switch on July 4. The game will be available in Japanese, English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. The new versions will have a new theme song, additional CG, and a new episode.

Sekai Project released the Nekopara Vol. 1 visual novel on PC via Steam in December 2014. The company also released the Nekopara Vol. 0 fandisc prequel on PC in August 2015, and the Nekopara Vol. 2 game in February 2016. Neko Works released Nekopara Vol. 3 in Japan in May 2017, and Sekai Project released the game on Steam in English on the same day.

The game series has sold more than 2 million copies. The game inspired an OVA funded through a Kickstarter campaign that launched in December.
