posted on by Alex Mateo
Idea Factory began streaming three trailers for its Norn9 LOFN visual novel collection on Sunday. The company will release the otome game collection, which includes Norn9: Var Commons and Norn9: Last Era, for Nintendo Switch on September 27, 2018.
Norn9 LOFN will have a limited edition that includes sticky notes and nine character cards.
Otomate and Idea Factory shipped the original Norn9: Norn + Nornette game on the PSP in 2013. The game was ported to the PS Vita under the title Norn9 Var Commons in December 2014, and on iOS and Android devices last December. The Norn9 Norn + Nonette Last Era game shipped on the PS Vita in April 2015. Aksys Games released the Norn9 Var Commons version of the game in North America in November 2015.
In the original game, the player can choose between three different girls as the heroine, each with their own three male characters to romance. The game starts when a certain song transports a boy named Sorata Suzuhara to a different era and place. When Sorata regains consciousness, he finds himself standing in an unfamiliar place — an old town, awash with sepia tones. The scene is exactly like the Meiji and Taishō-era pictures he had seen in textbooks. He encounters three girls and nine young men in this world, and embarks on a journey in the skies with them and the giant Norn airship.
A 12-episode television anime adaptation titled Norn9: Norn + Nonette premiered in January 2016. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North America, and the series streamed on The Anime Network and Hulu as it aired in Japan. Sentai Filmworks released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in June 2017.
