Yuri VN ‘Heart of the Woods’ Will Be Released on Switch this July; PS4, PS5 and Xbox Consoles in August

Sekai Games has announced the release date for the Switch version of Heart of the Woods. The yuri visual novel developed by Studio Élan was originally released for PC and will be available for Switch on July 8. Besides the Nintendo console, the company has revealed the game will be available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in August.

Heart of the Woods tells the story of a young woman called Maddie Raines who’s fed up with her current life situation. Together with her best friend Tara, she goes on a paranormal investigation trip to a remote village. There they find ancient mysteries and strange phenomena. One of those is the ghost of a young woman tied to a love story that transcends life and death.

The console release was originally expected for 2020, but the porting needed some extra time. In case you’d like to know more about the game, you can check our review of the PC version.
