Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 06

Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 06 was announced for Switch earlier this year. At the time, Prototype shared a vague summer release window for the game. The company has now followed up today by confirming plans to have it ready in September.

Like all of the other entries in the series, Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 06 should be released in Japan and the west at the same time. English, Japanese, and Chinese language options will be supported.


Fatal Twelve, the mystery visual novel announced for Switch awhile back, has now been dated for a July 21 launch on the platform. We also now have confirmation that it will launch worldwide – not just Japan.

Here’s an overview of the game, along with a trailer:

Grisaia: Phantom Trigger 06 will be joining its predecessors on the Switch this Summer in Japan. Per Weekly Famitsu, the game will cost 1,500 yen. For the curious, you can check out an overview for the game from its Steam page after the break:
