Despite having the word “Tokimeki” in the title, this visual novel will have no relation whatsoever with Konami‘s Tokimeki Memorial franchise. The title Tokimeki no Mirai Chizu can also be translated to “The Heart-Throbbing Future Map.”

Bushiroad has also published a new Japanese X account for the Love Live game. However, it has still yet to divulge details on the new title, including its release date. The catchphrase on both the pinned tweet and the official website teases a school life between “you” and the 12 people, which implies that the player will act as an original protagonist who can interact with members of the Idol Club in the Nijigasaki High School.

Once released, the visual novel will be available to purchase and play on the Nintendo Switch for the foreseeable future. Bushiroad used to launch Love Live: School Idol Festival 2 as a sequel to its mobile game in April 2023. However, the Japanese release’s abrupt shutdown in March 2024 led to a bizarre situation for the global version. Bushiroad announced that services for the global release would start in February 2024 and end three months later in May 2024.

The Love Live Nijigasaki High School Idol Club visual novel Tokimeki no Mirai Chizu will be available for Nintendo Switch.
