Mages has announced that the delusional science adventure visual novels Chaos;Head Noah and Chaos;Child will be releasing for the Nintendo Switch as a double pack in Japan on February 24, 2022. However, there is currently no word on whether an English version of this release is planned.
Chaos:Head Noah can be seen as the director’s cut version of the original Chaos;Head which was a PC-only release in Japan. Noah added character routes and released for several consoles in Japan. Unfortunately, no edition of Chaos;Head has ever received an official localization.
Chaos;Child is a visual novel taking place 6 years after Chaos;Head Noah, focusing on a new group of protagonists. This title did receive an official English localization from publisher PQube on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and by publisher Spike Chunsoft on PC via Steam.
It is also worth noting that both Chaos;Head and Chaos;Child have romantic comedy visual novels respectively titled Chaos;Head Love Chu Chu! and Chaos;Child Love Chu Chu!! Unfortunately, neither of these titles have ever been officially localized and are not included in this upcoming double pack releasing in Japan next year.
You can view the official trailer for this upcoming double pack below:
I am desperately hoping for at least Chaos;Head Noah to be localized. I played the original game via a fan translation on PC, and it is my favorite visual novel of all time, so it would be a dream to see Noah finally grace western audiences. Still, I’m not expecting it. I would love to be surprised, though.
