The next entry in the Nekopara series has an updated release window. People were initially expecting it to show up in Spring 2020, but the visual novel was delayed. Now, after Sekai Project’s Kurotsuki Convention Online 2020 panel, we know Nekopara Vol 4: Noel avec les filles-chat et Patissier will arrive in November 2020.
Sekai project’s update included a new description for the game’s story and an update on its translation. The English version is “nearly complete.”
Here’s the newly released official description of the plot:
Despite the popularity of Kashou Minaduki’s patisserie, "La Soleil", his father continues to disapprove of it.
Seeing how troubled Kashou was, Shigure offers up a suggestion as a change of pace.
A hot springs trip with Chocola, Vanilla and the other catpanions.
With Azuki and Coconut’s encouragement, Kashou is determined to confront his father while Maple and Cinnamon suggest a trip to France to seek advice from the teacher who taught him his craft.
But why is Shigure also tagging along!?
And an encounter with a new catgirl in France…
The new catgirl alluded to is Fraise, who lives with Shigure’s teacher Beignet.
Nekopara Vol 4 was announced back in June 2019 and it will launch in November 2020 on PCs. Nekopara Vol 1-3 are available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC, while the Nekopara anime series is now available through Funimation. Chocola and Vanilla Figmas will be released in 2021.
