While Clannad has been well known and well received among anime fans, fans have not been able to experience the Visual Novel it originated from until now. Up until this point, Clannad has only been playable, in English, through the fan translation by Doki Fansubs. Now, over ten years after its original Japanese release, Clannad is now being officially released in English on Steam. Sekai Project has announced that they plan to fund the translation through a Kickstarter campaign with a number of awesome prizes available. They have also stated that the translation is going to be based off of Doki Fansub’s translation, and that they have explored the possibilities of Widescreen support and a physical release.
I personally am very excited to hear about this seeing as how I have always been interested in Clannad for quite some time, and I prefer to experience these thing in their original form. I can imagine that this should come as great news to fans of the series as well.
