A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd Visual Novel Headed To Switch In Japan On July 26



Publisher ARIA announced in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine that the 2013 romance visual novel A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd, or Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai, previously released on PS Vita back in 2015 and it’ll head to Switch this July in Japan. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]


The Nintendo Switch version is actually a port of the PS Vita version which released in Japan as Daitosohokan no Hitsujikai -Library Party-, and it will contain the fan disc and spin-off title. The original heroine that was made for the console version will also be included.


Here’s a description from VNDb:

When he was young, Kyoutarou wanted to read all the magic books in the world, but they were all in the magic library. Someone told him that to get there, he must be kind to everyone and bring happiness to their hearts. He received a bookmark, which was his entrance ticket to the magic library.

One day while heading to school, he received a text from the ‘shepherd’ (hitsujikai) telling him that his fate was going to change. He had a vision of an accident at the tram station and helped prevent any injuries by calling away a nearby girl. That girl, Tsugumi, later came to the Library Club room, which he was a member of, to thank him and also to ask for his help to make Shiomi Academy more fun. It seemed that she had also received a text from the shepherd, who is rumoured to appear before people who try their best to grant their wishes. One by one, other students also join their group with the shepherd’s guidance.


A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd will release for Nintendo Switch in Japan on July 26, 2018 for 6,800 yen.
