Sony's U.S. PlayStation blog revealed on Friday that Sony will release the PlayStation 4 version of Neko Works' Nekopara Vol. 1 game on November 2.

The PS4 version was originally slated for a release on July 4 alongside the Nintendo Switch version of the game, but was then delayed to a general summer 2018 release. The Switch version launched on July 4 in Japan and North America and on August 23 in Europe.

Neko Works announced on August 10 that it will also bring its Nekopara Vol. 2 game to Switch and PS4.

Sekai Project had originally planned to release the first chapter of Tam-U's NEKOPARA manga in August through Kobo, Amazon, Comixology and other distributors, but delayed the release to September 29.

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.

Sekai Project also released the NEKOPARA Extra ~The Kittens' First Promise game on July 27. The game was a stretch goal for Sekai Project's 2017 Kickstarter campaign to create an OVA based on Neko Works and Sayori's NEKOPARA adult visual novel. The Kickstarter campaign also funded a 12-minute OVA of the prequel game as another stretch goal.

The game series has sold more than 2 million copies.

Update: Neko Works stated on Twitter on Sunday that "there are no white rays covering up graphics" in the PS4 version of the game. [Via Hachima Kikō]
