The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals Clannad will be out for Switch in Spring 2019.
The visual novel first made its debut on PC back in 2004. The game has since seen its ports made their way to various platform generations throughout the years. According to early information, Clannad’s Switch version will make use of the touchscreen and Joy-Con.
No word has been revealed yet if the Switch version will see a localization. But, since the current versions supports English on other platforms, it is highly probable the Switch version might get the same treatment.
Here’s what the game is about:
Okazaki Tomoya is a third year high school student at Hikarizaka Private High School, leading a life full of resentment. His mother passed away in a car accident when he was young, leading his father, Naoyuki, to resort to alcohol and gambling to cope. This resulted in constant fights between the two until Naoyuki dislocated Tomoya’s shoulder. Unable to play on his basketball team, Tomoya began to distance himself from other people. Ever since he has had a distant relationship with his father, naturally becoming a delinquent over time.
While on a walk to school, Tomoya meets a strange girl named Furukawa Nagisa, questioning if she likes the school at all. He finds himself helping her, and as time goes by, Tomoya finds his life heading towards a new direction.
