Publisher PQube has revealed that the Nintendo Switch version of Song of Memories has officially been cancelled due to "development complications".

Originally expected to launch for the system last year, Song of Memories is a visual novel game that tasks you with finding your soulmate in a musical love story. The game has been in development for Switch and PS4 for some time, and while the PS4 version is safe and sound (and will release early next month), the Switch version is sadly no more.

The news comes from a press release shared by the publisher today, in which the studio explains that the game "can’t be brought to a functioning level of quality" as demanded by fans of Nintendo's machine:

"Today, PQube announces the release date of the romantic visual novel Song of Memories on PlayStation 4. The love story that turned the Japanese genre upside down with its surprising twist releases worldwide on February 1st.

While the PlayStation 4 version and the special Encore Edition are confirmed, we regrettably had to cancel the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Unfortunately, Song of Memories can’t be brought to a functioning level of quality our fans demand on the Switch due to development complications."
