Song of Memories: Nintendo Switch version still in the works, dev aiming for multi-lingual digital release

Back in January 2019, PQube announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Song of Memories (a romantic visual novel) has been cancelled due to “development complications.” Though, contrary to what was reported at the time, it’s only the western release by PQube that was cancelled, not the Nintendo Switch version itself.

In fact, the development is still ongoing, and appears to be progressing well. According to Yasuo Omote, one of the developers from Future Tech Lab, the game now runs “flawlessly” on a Nintendo Switch devkit.

While the Nintendo Switch version was certainly a long time coming (it’s been quite a while since we last heard anything about it), it looks like, in the end, the development team was able to overcome the technical issues that lead to the cancellation of the western release by PQube.

Nothing concrete has been announced yet, but according to Yasuo Omote, the Nintendo Switch release will be available exclusively via the Nintendo eShop. It will be playable in the following languages: Japanese, English, French, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional).
