Localized PC Version of Little Busters! Gets New Details With Official Announcement Coming April 30
In a blog entry, the editor-in-chief at Visual Arts Key revealed more information about the localized version of Little Busters!, coming to PC-via Steam.
Evidently, the game will be remastered with a new resolution of 720p. However, doing so will unavoidably crop the image. To get around this, the game will feature a scrolling system for players to view the entire image as well as an option to play the game in the original aspect ratio.
Additionally, players will be able to switch from English to Japanese text with the press of a button. This additional system will definitely benefit western fans who are learning Japanese, and vice versa.
The official announcement will be given at the Tokyo Big Sight event held on April 30 in Japan.
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.
In case you missed it, the developer released the English opening on April 1 running on PC.
