Visual Arts Key has released the western version of their emotional visual novel Summer Pockets on PC-via Steam.
Released in Japan in 2018, Summer Pockets tells an emotional story of a boy named Hairi Takahara, who travels to this island Seto Inland Sea after his grandmother passes away. The death was tough him and he uses the island as a way to escape dealing with the loss.
During his stay, he meets four girls who each make an impact on through their unique personalities and views on life. Each of these girls is also on the island for a particular reason and through the story, they’ll all figure out more about themselves and hopefully find what they were looking for.
Players will interact with the game as they choose what Takahara does on his days and how he responds to the situations that he gets himself in. The game has minigames as well to break away from the visual novel aspect for a few scenes.
Many of the staff members who worked on games like Clannad, Little Busters!, and Angel Beats!, are working on this title so expect an emotional roller coaster of intense storytelling. Additionally, I should mention that this is an all-ages visual novel.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game has not been confirmed for the west at this time.
While you prepare your wallets, you can check out some screenshots from Summer Pockets below, which also shows off the game’s English interface:
