Clannad Side Stories

Back in February, Clannad Side Stories was announced for Switch in Japan. It follows the original Clannad that released on the console around two or so years ago.

Fans will be happy to hear that Clannad Side Stories will also be offered on Switch in the west. A listing has popped up on the eShop, confirming plans for North America and Europe.

Here’s an overview of the game:

Clannad Side Stories is an anthology of sixteen short stories penned by the scenario writers of the original Clannad visual novel.

Featuring episodes set both before and after the events of Clannad, this collection is fully voiced by a stellar cast and brought to life by the gorgeous illustrations of acclaimed artist GOTO-P.

Available in two languages!
The text can be set to Japanese or English (audio is Japanese only). This includes in-game text, options, and the digital manual. Language settings can be changed at any time.

Play using only the touch screen! Play with one hand!
Play in handheld mode with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con™ controllers attached, or detach them and play with just the touch controls! While in tabletop mode or TV mode, everything can be controlled using only the Joy-Con (R), allowing you to play with only one hand! Also available for the Nintendo Switch Lite™. (A separate Joy-Con (R) is required to play with one hand.)

Gameplay
In this visual novel, players experience the story through onscreen text and visuals, accompanied by the original Clannad BGM and the vocal talents of a star-studded cast.
