Nekoworka announced that their visual novel Nekopara Vol. 3 will be delayed from its April 28 release date and moved to May 26 for PC.
The delay is followed by a statement from Nekoworks saying that series creator, Sayori, has suffered an illness and was hospitalized. However, the statement doesn’t mentioned if Sayori was released or is in good health, but it does say that they are sorry for the delay and the Nekopara team will work hard to deliver the product by the new release day.
The Nekopara series has grown in popularity in the west, with its most recent KickStarter for an anime OVA reaching over a million dollars.
The publisher details Vol 3’s premise:
Patisserie “La Soleil”, run by Kashou Minaduki, is flourishing thanks to the help of two catgirls: Maple, full of pride and a little on the haughty side, and Cinnamon, an impulsive daydreamer.
These two are especially close among among the rest of the sisters. One day, Maple encounters something that shakes her belief in attaining her dream. Cinnamon, unwilling to see Maple suffer, wishes to help her in any way possible… but she can’t figure out how. This story is a heartwarming cat comedy about their ambitions and the bonds between family members… with a little ecchi on the side, too.
We here at DualShockers hope for a speedy recovery to Sayori. We will patiently wait for the development team to deliver Nekopara Vol. 3 when they are ready.
