What do you get when you pull a Tokyo native from the city and drop him smack-dab in the middle of a snow-covered small town with an insane love triangle involving a goddess? Harvest December, a 13-part visual novel series from Japan, of course! Now, if CIRCLE Entertainment has its way, gamers in the West will be able to experience all the romance and humour of the novels: its tweet on 31st March indicates a localization is indeed underway.
In its native country, the 3DS eShop-exclusive episodes each come with an impressive price tag of just 100 yen (approximately £0.58 or $1 USD). Since the game has yet to receive a formal announcement, specific details about the pricing and availability of each title are currently out of reach. Needless to say, however, it's nice to see the elusive visual novel genre making another potential appearance on Western shores, where the popularity of titles such as Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward showed that there is a loyal audience to be found.
Do you enjoy visual novels? Will you be keeping an eye on Harvest December as its localization proceeds?
