Little Busters! Visual Novel’s English Release Slated for November 1
The official Twitter account for visual novel publisher Visual Art’s revealed on September 21 that its English release of its Little Busters! visual novel is slated for November 1 on Steam.
The game will have touch screen support, support for switchable text language between English and Japanese, will be completely HD with 1280×720 resolution, and will support a feature to zoom out for the original 4:3 aspect ratio.
The game will include content from the Little Busters! EX Perfect Edition, an updated version of the original game.
In 2015, VisualArt’s announced that it would release the game in English, and that its translations would be based on fan translations.
The 2007 PC software Little Busters! inspired a television anime that aired in Japan in 2012, followed by the Little Busters! Refrain television anime in 2013, and the Little Busters! EX original video anime project in 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the two television anime, and Sentai Filmworks released both on home video in North America. The original game received several ports, including one for the PS Vita.
Visual Art’s recently held a crowdfunding campaign for an anime adaptation of the Little Busters! spinoff visual novel Kud Wafter that reached its final stretch goal to produce a theatrical anime. Visual Art’s will announce a separate project for overseas backers.
