Sekai Project has announced that the western release for the VisualArts Key developed visual novel Rewrite+ has been delayed from its November 2020 release window to January 2021.
The team attributes the delay to giving the translation the “proper attention it deserves” as they check over the Karolis’s previous work. They have started the programming work as well, which is how they were able to share in-development screenshots.
There has been 9,000 lines of text imported into the game already, but they are still working on word-wrapping and names.
Rewrite+ was successfully crowdfunded last year to bring the title west. The campaign was created to bring Rewrite+ and Rewrite Harvest festa! to western fans, and was necessary to pay the high cost of voice audio licensing fees.
Rewrite+ and Rewrite Harvest festa! is set in Kazamatsuri, where Tennoji Kotarou spends his day with his close group of friends. Once a year, an event shakes the foundations of this small town. Known as the harvest festival, Kotarous collects information about creatures and the occult. All around him, strange things happen, and Kotarou does what he can to find the “truth” that no one else has discovered.
