Adventure Visual Novel ‘YU-NO’ Out Now on PS4, Switch, and PC

Spike Chunsoft has announced that Mages developed adventure visual novel YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World has launched on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam for $49.99. If you didn’t know, now YU-NO (see what I did there?).

Here’s a run-down of what the launch editions for each version of the game include:

  • The physical Nintendo Switch Day 1 Edition includes a voucher code for 8-Bit YU-NO’s Great Adventure, which has players experience an action game set in classic 8-bit style featuring the characters from YU-NO. 8-Bit YU-NO’s Great Adventure manual is available via YU-NO’s website — just in case you need to learn a bit more about the ins and outs of the game.
  • The PlayStation 4 Day 1 Edition, on the other hand, includes a mini cloth poster featuring Eriko Takeda, the mysterious school nurse at Sakaimachi Academy.
  • Getting the game on Steam during its first week of launch grants you a digital artbook plus a 10% discount.

The choice is yours as to which version is best for you, but if I had to pick one, I’d say the Switch version solely for 8-Bit YU-NO’s Great Adventure.

YU-NO tells the story of a love that awaits from beyond this world. The game follows Takuya Arima from Sakaimachi Academy who receives a package from a father he assumed to be deceased. From here, Takuya uses the help of his friends, teachers, and possibly his lovers to figure out the mystery of his father’s legacy that could prevent a calamity that is threatening reality.

The publisher previously announced that the Switch and PS4 versions are censored in the west, but the Steam version is uncensored.

We just so happened to have reviewed the game, and called it, “an unmissable title for those who adore visual novels.”
