Publisher Future Tech Lab and developer PureWish have announced that visual novel Song of Memories will finally be arriving on Switch digitally via the eShop next week on March 23, with pre-orders now live. The game was previously cancelled back in 2019, with suggestions that a port of the title may not be possible but that options were being considered.

Here’s an overview of the title:

PQube has announced that it will no longer be publishing Song of Memories on Switch. In a statement, the company cited “development complications.”

The full note reads:

Song of Memories will be receiving a special edition. Sold exclusively on the Rice Digital Store, fans will be able to obtain the “Encore Edition”.

It includes the following:

  • A copy of the game
  • Collector’s box
  • Cloth screen cleaners with premium Song of Memories character artwork
  • Four-disc soundtrack CD collection
  • Penguin mobile phone charm
  • Art book (which will be translated into English)

Song of Memories was just announced for the west last week. Meanwhile, in Japan, the visual novel title has just been delayed from February to sometime this spring. Pure Wish will be using the extra time to address issues with development.

The Japanese delay for Song of Memories will not impact the North American and European release. It’s still expected later in the year overseas.


The visual novel Song of Memories was originally planned for this year on Switch in Japan. However, Pure Wish has today announced that the title will arrive around February. It will be sold as a digital-only release.

Song of Memories for Switch will have the same content as the PC version. Four additional scenarios will be packed in, including the “Sports Culture Festival,” “His Longest Day,” “The Adagio Tea House is Booming,” and “Utanami Girls Network” scenarios.
