Kanon Launches April 20 for Switch in Japan

    The classic Key visual novel returns.

    The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals Key-developed romance visual novel Kanon launches on April 20 for Nintendo Switch in Japan. 

    As previously reported, the upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Kanon includes color enhancements, 16:9 aspect ratio, and the ability to scroll up and down event CG. In addition, the game is fully voiced with the exception of the protagonist, who is partly voiced.

    Here’s an overview of the romance visual novel via VNDB:

    Yuuichi Aizawa, a high school student, returns to a town that he last visited 7 years previously to live with his aunt and cousin. For a reason he’s not quite sure of, he can hardly remember anything about his last visit, but initially this doesn’t seem to worry him too much.

    The day after he arrives he goes into town where he (literally) bumps into a girl named Ayu Tsukimiya, and Yuuichi’s memories slowly begin to return.
