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.

As revealed by retailer listings, Summer Pockets has received its release date. The romance visual novel is due out in Japan on June 20.

VNDB offers up the following overview for Summer Pockets:

It was just a couple of weeks ago that Clannad was revealed for Switch. We now have official confirmation that the visual novel will carry English support. Clannad has only been announced for Japan, but that carries slightly less importance now with today’s news and the fact that Switch is region-free.

Players will be able to go back and forth between Japanese and English text at any time. However, only Japanese voices will be supported.


Prototype has opened a teaser site for Clannad on Switch, which was announced in Famitsu this week. You can find it here.

Clannad launches for Switch this spring in Japan. It’s not been confirmed for the west yet, but the PlayStation 4 version did include English support – so that bodes well for fans overseas.
