If you were eagerly waiting for the PC version of Pure Wish’s charming visual novel (with a dark side) Song of Memories, I have bad news and good news.

The good news is that the game was released today on Steam, and is currently available for purchase for $34.99. The bad news is that it launched only with Japanese and Chinese language.

Luckily, there is additional good news, in the fact that both English and French text are mentioned as “coming soon.” So we just have to wait a bit longer.

Song of Memories is one of those visual novels that start with your usual romance harem stories but then twists radically into a much darker tone, pretty much like my most beloved Muv-Luv. 

Here is an official description from the developer:

Precious Moments That Can Never Return

Although there has been a global pandemic due to an unknown virus, the protagonist spends his days happily surrounded by six beautiful classmates. Little does he know of the fate that awaits him… The “common route” which is the first half of the game, is filled with plenty of happy and romantic events! Enjoy happy moments with the heroines. Over 100 common events including dates and a swimming pool event!

An Epic Fully Animated Adventure Game

Unlike no other adventure game in the past, this game features the 2D animation tool “E-mote” which provides full animation in all dialogue scenes and cut scenes, making it feel like you were watching an anime. Additionally, the entire massive scenario is voiced completely (including the protagonist) and features detailed reactions by all the characters, making players want to watch all the lines of dialogue without skipping them.

Over 30 Songs Included in the Game!

This game features over 30 songs within the production. There are 2 opening theme songs and 6 ending theme songs, all sung by a colorful cast of voice actors who play the parts of the heroines. The 3D battle system features rhythm game attributes in which you select characters from the fictional girl group “Dream 4 You” to create different combinations for the battle songs.

We also get the system requirements, which seems… a bit demanding for a visual novel, as fully animated as it can be.
