Sekai Games announced that the TALEshop developed visual novel My Girlfriend is a Mermaid!? will launch on Nintendo Switch on February 28.

My Girlfriend is a Mermaid!? has the player go on an adventure that will bring them to a mysterious legend that will reunite him with his childhood friend, Ion, who evidently has turned into a mermaid. Throughout the story, players will meet other mermaids who require the player’s help. This will be a summer vacation that the protagonist won’t soon forget after discovering more about the legend of the mermaids and maybe along the way, finding love.

Author’s take: Sekai Project’s game division is going in head first with this awesomely insane concept of a visual novel and I’m completely on board. I’ll be interested to see how console players pick up these titles, but we’ll definitely continue to share news about them.
