posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Game developer Prototype announced on Friday that it will release Visual Art's/Key's planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ "kinetic novel" for the Nintendo Switch in North America, Japan, and Europe with English, Japanese, and Chinese text. The release is slated for spring 2019.
Visual Art's/Key (Clannad, Rewrite, Angel Beats!) originally released the planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ "kinetic novel" in Japan on personal computers in 2004 before porting it to the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable consoles. The story takes place 30 years after a world war put a halt to space development. The protagonist, simply known as "the Junk Hunter," attempts to restore a planetarium's projector after meeting a robot.
The planetarian anime project includes the five-episode planetarian: Chiisana Hoshi no Yume (planetarian: The Dream of the Small Star) anime, which premiered in July 2016, and the planetarian: Hoshi no Hito (planetarian: Star Person) anime film, which premiered in September 2016. The net anime adapts the main game's story, while the film is "another story" about what happens to Kuzuya afterward.
