SeaBed for Nintendo Switch™ Now Available

March 19, 2020 - Are you ready to dive into the deep end? The Nintendo Switch version of SeaBed, Paleontology's psychological yuri (girls' love) themed visual novel masterpiece, is now out on Nintendo Switch™, Published by Fruitbat Factory and available from the North American, European and Japan eShops, complete with new bonus scenes.

SeaBed was released in Japan in 2016 and quickly drew the attention of visual novel enthusiasts in both Japan and overseas. The international PC version was released by Fruitbat Factory in December 2017 and has charmed countless players since. By popular demand, SeaBed is now available on Nintendo Switch™! The updated Nintendo Switch™ version includes two all-new bonus scenes with additional illustrations for the enjoyment of fans, both new and old.

A physical limited edition release has been announced in partnership with eastasiasoft via Playasia. The pre-orders for the physical release are also open today, with a release expected in late Summer 2020, complete with added Simplified and Traditional Chinese translation.

“SeaBed is a work of great love and passion for us, and we're so happy to be able to make it our first console visual novel release, as well as our first physical console release. It's a deeply human story that deals with themes important to all of us, and I hope sharing the heartfelt stories of Sachiko, Takako and Narasaki can touch the hearts and expand the world of many readers like it has ours.” - Jakke Elonen, President of Fruitbat Factory


SeaBed is a critically acclaimed yuri-themed mystery visual novel told through the perspectives of three separate characters: Mizuno Sachiko, a designer plagued by hallucinations of her past lover; Narasaki Hibiki, Sachiko's friend and a psychiatrist researching the workings of human memories; and Takako, Sachiko's former lover who has been rapidly forgetting her past, including how or why the two women drifted apart despite being together since childhood.

All three live in different worlds, but seek the same goal. To separate truth from illusion. To make sense of their own lives.

The Nintendo Switch™ version supports English and Japanese languages and has been updated with improved BGM quality to further enhance the experience.

A gameplay trailer for the game can be seen on the Fruitbat Factory YouTube channel.

SeaBed is now available to play on Switch in the following Nintendo eShops:
Americas ($19.99)
Europe and Oceania (€19.99 / £17.99)
Japan (2200 JPY)

An Asian region eShop release is planned for later in 2020 accompanying a Chinese translation of the game.
