Visual Arts Releases English Opening Movie for the Long Awaited Little Busters

on April 1, 2017 5:59 AM

Visual Arts launched the English opening movie for the Key developed visual novel Little Busters!, this includes the EX Perfect Edition content which is an all-ages version of Ecstasy, coming to PC.

Although some might accuse this as being an April Fool’s joke, Visual Arts has a habit of announcing their projects on this day. This includes Planetarian’s anime release on April Fool’s 2016 and Rewrite’s visual novel announcement on April Fool’s 2008.

Last January, Visual Art’s CEO Takahiro Baba, announced that Prototype is working on the localized version of Little Busters! and that more information would follow in Spring 2017.

Little Busters! tells the story of an orphan, Riki, who meets a group called Little Busters. The group allowed him to forget his sadness and focus on their friendship.

Earlier today, western localization publisher MangaGamer announced they will have Little Busters! character designer Itaru Hinoue as a guest for Anime Expo 2017. The publisher teased that she might be announcing a new title.

Whether or not this is an April Fool’s joke, the game is confirmed for localization and this is the official opening movie in English. However, a release date was not revealed.
