Clannad for Switch previously received a physical release in Japan alongside its original launch. Now, however, Limited Run Games is stepping in to offer a boxed copy for western fans. The first-print Japanese collector’s edition has also been recreated in English.

Pre-orders for the visual novel go live on April 14. Reservations will be available for a six-week period.


Clannad will end up receiving a physical version in the west after all. Limited Run Games and Sekai Games are teaming up with the game’s developers to make the release possible.

According to Sekai, a collector’s edition will be offered that “will mirror the first print release from the original Japanese PC release.” This will be the first time Clannad will be sold physically on a console in English.

Pre-orders will be opening soon, so stay tuned for news about that.
