For those not in the know, Fruitbat Factory is localizing the popular visual novel Little Busters!. Recently, the first English trailer for the project went live.
You may be aware of Little Busters! due to its animated adaptation. If not, you may be aware of it due to it being the sixth title from Key, the creators of acclaimed series such as Kanon, Air, and Clannad.
This visual novel tells the story of the Little Busters!, a group of friends in high school. While playing through the game’s routes, the protagonist forms and strengthens bonds with the rest of the cast as the player makes a variety of choices. There are also mini-games present, though these are completely optional and rather basic. For the most part, it would seem that this is just another slice of life story. Of course, since this is a Key title, there is more to it than meets the eye at first glance.
It has been a little over a year and a half since the original localization announcement. The version that Fruitbat Factory is bringing over is the Perfect Edition. This version contains all routes from previous releases with adult scenes removed. They have yet to announce a release date for the project.
