Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 01&02 Game Launches for Switch in June
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Prototype announced on Tuesday that it will publish the first two volumes of Frontwing's Grisaia: Phantom Trigger game digitally for the Nintendo Switch in Japan on June 25. The release, titled Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 01&02, will have language support for Japanese, English, and Chinese (Simplified). Prototype began streaming the opening movie for the release.
Players will be able to play the release with one Joy-Con or the Switch's touchscreen. The Switch release is adding various functions including the ability to disable the system's automatic sleep feature during Auto Mode and Movie mode.
Frontwing released the first two volumes of the game with English text for PC via Steam in April 2017 (on the same day Frontwing released the volumes in Japan). The publisher released the sixth volume on Steam in April 2019.
Frontwing had hosted a crowdfunding campaign for the game in 2017, which raised US$183,027 to enhance the game's release. The enhancements included a physical version of the game, a physical English version of the manga adaptation, special packaging, and an English version of the Grisaia Complete Box.
The Grisaia: Phantom Trigger anime adaptation of the game opened in Japan in March 2019, and Frontwing will release an English dub. The Campfire crowdfunding campaign for Grisaia: Phantom Trigger the Animation Stargazer, the sequel to the anime, reached its 10 million yen (about US$92,000) goal less than 24 hours after it launched last July. Each episode was originally planned to be 60 minutes long and would adapt one volume of the original visual novel.
Sekai Project launched Frontwing's The Fruit of Grisaia on Steam in 2015 after meeting its Kickstarter goal for a Western release of the game trilogy. Frontwing and Sekai Project have also released The Labyrinth of Grisaia and The Eden of Grisaia on Steam. Frontwing released the The Fruit of Grisaia bonus episode "The Leisure of Grisaia" on Steam in May 2016.
All three of the main games inspired anime and manga adaptations.
