Emotional Visual Novel ‘Summer Pockets’ Announced for the West
During Animage Expo 2019, developer Visual Arts Key announced that their emotional visual novel Summer Pockets will be headed west and is currently in production.
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.
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, this is an all-ages visual novel so I wouldn’t expect too much in terms of adult content in the game, but there are some ecchi moments.
To hold fans off until more news is shared, the team released a few images of the localized version of the game. It’s not announced if this will be only the PC release or if the Nintendo Switch version will also head west.
