‘We wouldn’t be able to bring the quality we strive to deliver’
PQube Games has announced the cancellation of Song of Memories for Nintendo Switch. The announcement was made via an apologetic tweet from the developer earlier today.
Anime-infused visual novel Song of Memories was originally conceived for the PlayStation Vita, but was eventually moved to PS4 and Nintendo Switch platforms. Citing developmental issues, PQube openly states that they cannot get the game running to a respectable level of quality on the Nintendo console, eventually deciding to pull the plug.
The PS4 release is expected to go ahead as planned, and is penciled in for launch on February 1. The western localisation is mostly unchanged from the Japanese release, save for the rewording of “school” to “academy”. Song of Memories appears to be your typical “boy-meets-girl, then-more-girls, then-there’s-an-apocalyptic-virus-planning-to-wipe-out-humanity” tale of hi-jinx.
Song of Memories launches on PS4 February 1.
However, due to development issues, we regrettably have to announce the cancellation of #SongofMemories on Switch as we wouldn’t be able to bring you the game to the level of quality that we strive to deliver. We apologize to all our fans. #NintendoSwitch #Switch #visualnovel pic.twitter.com/lq4GMIMet6
