VisualArts released new screenshots for the much anticipated western release of Little Busters! English Edition, coming to PC in 2017.

The screenshots show off the game’s new full screen aspect ratio along with a glimpse of the baseball mini-game that players will encounter during the game’s story.

Additionally, the developer revealed that Fruitbat Factory will be handling the English localization.

Recently, the developer announced that at anytime the player can switch the in-game text with the press of button. More information about the release is said to come during a Tokyo Big Sight event held on April 30 in Japan.

Currently, the game is in pre-alpha.

Originally released in 2007 in Japan, Little Busters! is a romance visual novel where the player assumes the role of protagonist Riki Naoe. During his childhood, Riki became orphaned and began to fall into depression. However, he meets a group of four other children who call themselves Little Busters and finds reasons to be happy again.

There are a total of eight heroines in the game that can be romanced, three of which were added in the release of Ecstasy. Throughout the story, players will be given multiple text options to chose from during conversations. The following events of the story will alter depending on their choices. Furthermore, there are various mini-games that the player is able to participate in.
