Retailer listings have revealed the Japanese release date for Little Busters! Converted Edition. Prototype will publish the title on April 23 for 6,050 yen. As a bonus, pre-orders will include the special drama CD “‘Our’ Morning.”

Little Busters! Converted Edition comes with all additional elements implemented in the romance visual novel thus far, including full voice-overs for the main characters, supporting characters, and portrait for popular sub-character A-chan Senpai added in the PS Vita version, as well as the new event CG for certain scenes added in Little Busters! Perfect Edition for PC. That’s on top of the ability to switch between English and Japanese text at any time, a “Busterpedia” explaining the Japanese culture terms used in the game, full touchscreen control support, and the ability to play the game with a one hand via a single Joy-Con (R) in table and TV modes.

Many characters have been rumored for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC fighters, which have been perpetuated by internet speculation. Doom Slayer from the Doom series is one such representative that some have wondered about possibly ending up in the Switch game.

Doom Eternal developer Marty Stratton addressed those rumors directly in an interview with Metro. According to the director, there have been light discussions, but they’ve “never gone anywhere serious”. While Nintendo hasn’t asked the team about putting Doom Slayer in Smash Bros., they’re “open-minded”.

Here’s the full exchange between Metro and Stratton:
