Crack a (digital) book
Visual novel fans hoping to take more of their libraries on the go are getting a new one this week. A Nintendo eShop listing shows that The House in Fata Morgana: Drams of the Revenants Edition is hitting the Switch eShop in North America on April 9, 2021.
The eShop listing popped up sometime recently, as noted by a few sharp observers. We reached out to publisher Limited Run Games for confirmation and a spokesperson confirmed that yes, it will be released digitally this Friday.
The House in Fata Morgana is a pretty well-regarded visual novel, sitting as one of the highest-rated stories by users on VNDB and overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam. Though it was first released in Japan in 2012, it went worldwide on PC in 2016, with a run from Limited Run Games in 2019 for both the PlayStation Vita and PS4.
Set in a mansion throughout various time periods, it follows an attempt to regain lost memories by viewing past tragedies associated with the residents and their residence. I’ve managed to keep myself pretty unspoiled on what more happens, but given the praise I’ve seen for The House in Fata Morgana, it’s definitely jumping up my backlog.
The Dreams of the Revenants Edition coming to Nintendo Switch contains the main game, as well as the prequel A Requiem for Innocence, a sequel called Reincarnation, and other additional short stories. Basically, a whole lot of visual novel to read. It’ll be fun to see how developer Novectacle’s VN makes the jump to Switch, and to have some more stories to read on my Switch.
