Visual Novel ‘Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien’ to Receive Official English Release After Killing it in Localization Survey

Anchor announced that they will localize the much-requested Age-developed Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien, aka KimiNozo, in the west and is currently in production for release.

While the developer didn’t reveal too much more of their plans about the release, it is a fairly sought after localization. In the company’s survey, KimiNozo won 29% of the 1,292 respondents’ votes to be brought west, beating Muv-Luv Unlimited -The Day After- and Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse.

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien first launched on PC in 2001 before releasing on other consoles in Japan. The title then received an anime adaptation tiled Rumbling Hearts, but sadly, the game itself never saw an official western release.

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien follows Takayuki Narumi, who has become friends with Mitsuki Hayase, seemingly because Mitsuki’s best friend, Haruka Suzumiya, has a crush on him. Shinji Taira, Takayuki, and Mitsuki have all grown close until Haruka confesses her feeling, and Takayuki goes out with her to not hurt her feelings.

Things begin to become complicated after their relationship gets intimate, and Takayuki and Mitsuki realize their feelings for each other. That is until a tragedy occurs, and their lives are never the same.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the western release of Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien.
