People won’t have to wait too long to play Key’s next visual novel in English. During the third Key Channel livestream, it confirmed the plan is to release the Summer Pockets English version on PCs in 2019. People will be able to get it from Steam.
In addition, the Key livestream showed off a Summer Pockets English screenshot that originally made its debut at Animaga Expo 2019. At the time, due to the photo quality, people may not have gotten the clearest idea of how it will look. The newly released picture makes it much easier to see Shiroha cooking.
The announcement arrived at the 56:16 moment of the Key livestream.
In addition, when the Key character popularity poll held in honor of the developer’s 20th anniversary was announced, it was revealed that Summer Pockets’ Shiroha made it into the top ten. (She was number nine.) The top ten were, in order, Little Busters’ Kyosuke, Angel Beats’ Kanade, Clannad’s Nagisa, Little Busters’ Kud, Air’s Misuzu, Charlotte’s Nao, Clannad’s Tomoyo, Clannad’s Kyo, Summer Pockets’ Shiroha, and Little Busters’ Saya.
Summer Pockets is available on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Android and Apple iOS devices in Japan. It will come to the PC outside of Japan in 2019.
