Romance Visual Novel ‘Aokana EXTRA1’ Gets Switch Release Date in New Trailer

Sprite released a new trailer for their visual novel Aokana EXTRA1 coming to Nintendo Switch on May 5, 2023, in Japan. The game will release simultaneously with EXTRA2, with a double pack available. An English text option has not been confirmed, but given that EXTRA1 is available on Steam from publisher NekoNyan, we can assume the title will be available in some form in the west.

Aokana EXTRA1 follows the events after Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue. However, the story focuses on Mashiro, one of the most popular characters in the series. Throughout the story, players will spend more time with the characters but will mostly learn more about Mashiro and hopefully turn a friendship into romance.

The game was confirmed to be headed west after the Kickstarter goal was met with additional physical goodies for those hardcore fans. Furthermore, the publisher released the opening movie to get players hyped on continuing their Aokana adventure.

Aokana – Four Rhythms Across the Blue tells the story of a world where people have the ability to fly through the air using special shoes. Also, a popular sport known as Flying Circus is currently all the rage. The story follows Masaya Hinata, a prodigy who turned his back on the sport after suffering a defeat, although there is another reason. During the story, his passion ends up being reignited after he finds himself teaching a transfer student, Asuka Kurashina, how to fly.
