Song of Memories coming west for PS4 this fall, Switch and PC ports in development

Pure Wish also working on its next "Song of" title.

Song of Memories

Pure Wish shared a slew of Song of Memories-related news today, including the announcement that the visual novel is coming to PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe this fall, and that Switch and PC ports are in development for release in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Get the details below.

Song of Memories Novelization

This summer, a novel that follows the root of main heroine Fuuka Kamishiro called Song of Memories: Kakegae no Nai Mono (Something Irreplaceable) will be released in Japan. In addition to event stills featured in the game, the novel will use newly drawn illustrations on both the front cover and for some parts of the book.

Jun Hanazawa, who did character designs for the game, is doing the new illustrations. And Yasuyuki Mochida, who did the scenario for the game, is doing the story for the novel.

Song of Memories Overseas Version and Port

The PlayStation 4 version of Song of Memories that is currently available in Japan will be localized in English and French, and launch in North America and Europe this fall.

Additionally, a Switch version of the game with Japanese, English, and French language support will be released in 2017, and a Steam version will follow in 2018.

(Editor’s Note: Pure Wish did not state whether the Switch and PC versions would be released outside of Japan, but they will support English regardless.)

Song of Series Sequel

Following its first project, Song of Memories, Pure Wish is currently in planning of its second project. While AI characters such as those in Song of Memories will appear, further information has yet to be announced.
