Tomoyo After and Little Busters visual novels to receive official English releases

Tomoyo After and Little Busters visual novels to receive official English releases

Author: Andy Hanley

Andy has been writing for UK Anime since 2006, and was the site's editor-in-chief until August 2017.  Contrary to popular belief, Andy is not actually a robot.


It's a good time to be a fan of visual novels from popular developer of said titles Key - in November of last year we saw Sekai Project successfully run a Kickstarter campaign to bring together an official English language release of Clannad, and as of last weekend Japanese visual novel publisher VisualArt's confirmed that they will be working towards English language releases of both Clannad spin-off game Tomoyo After ~It's a Wonderful Life~ as well as Little Busters!

Both games will have their releases based on reworked fan translations of the original Japanese titles, at which point said fan translations will be removed from distribution by their creators.

There's no timeframe for either release at this point in time, but Visual Art's are keen to point out that support for these projects could lead to more official Key visual novel release in the future.

You can read the full announcement over at the Visual Art's Facebook page.
