Game launched on Switch in Japan on June 20

Visual Art's/Key revealed at Animaga Expo in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday that its Summer Pockets visual novel is getting an English version that is currently in production.

The game originally launched for PC in June 2018 in Japan. Visual Art's/Key and Prototype launched the game's Nintendo Switch version digitally and physically in Japan on June 20. The companies also released the game on smartphones.

The game takes place in a rural district of a certain isolated island. The story focuses on "one nostalgic summer."

Jun Maeda (Kanon, AIR, Clannad, Angel Beats!) is credited with the original concept. Na-Ga (Angel Beats!, Little Busters!, Charlotte), Tsubasu Izumi (Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka, Mashiroiro Symphony - The color of lovers), and Yūnon Nagayama (Angel Beats!) are credited with providing the original illustrations.

Yū Niijima (Koi x Shin Ai Kanojo, Majo Koi Nikki), Kai (Clannad, Rewrite, Harmonia), and Hasama (Tokyo Babel, Kimi to Kanojo to Kanojo no Koi.) wrote the scenario. Maeda composed the music with Shinji Orito (Angel Beats! Harmonia), Donmaru (planetarian, Little Busters!, Giniro, Haruka), and Tomohiro Takeshita (planetarian, Angel Beats!, Harmonia).

Thanks to Kougeru for the news tip.
