” Little Busters! Visual Novel Gets Converted for the Nintendo Switch on April 23″
Little Busters!, the popular visual novel from developing house, Key, and the mind of Jun Maeda, is following in Clannad’s footsteps and getting a Nintendo Switch release on April 23. This version of the game will come complete with the usual Japanese text, as well as the English translation that was first used for the Steam release in 2017.
Trailer from the English Stream release:
The Nintendo Switch version will include all the updated gameplay elements found in the PSP version, the Vita version, the scenes added into the Complete Edition re-release for PC, and the “Busterpedia” that was added into the English version to help understand the Japanese cultural elements for foreigners.

The Switch version can be played in two different modes; TV and handheld mode, which only requires one JoyCon controller, specifically the right one, and a special handheld mode which only uses the touchscreen – no controller required!
