Song of Memories

 

Pure Wish has announced a slew of Song of Memories related news today. Their announcements come in three main parts. Some of the announcements detail the Song of Memories overseas version and port. Others go into the novelization of Song of Memories, as well as Pure Wish’s next project.

For the overseas version and port (which is already available in Japan), they announced that it is coming to PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe this fall (localized in English and French). There is also a version in the works for the Nintendo Switch that has Japanese, English, and French localization. It will launch at some point later this year in Japan, followed by a Steam version some time in 2018. Unfortunately, Pure Wish did not announce whether the Nintendo Switch and Steam versions will be released outside of Japan or not. So fans wanting these versions will just have to wait and see for now.

Song of Memories Overseas Version and Port

The PlayStation 4 version of Song of Memories that is currently available in Japan will be localized in English and French, and launch in North America and Europe this fall.

Additionally, a Switch version of the game with Japanese, English, and French language support will be released in 2017, and a Steam version will follow in 2018.

This summer Japan will also see the launch of a new novel called Song of Memories: Kakegae no Nai Mono (Something Irreplaceable). It follows the main heroine, Fuuka Kamishiro. This novel features some event stills from the game as well as brand new illustrations by Jun Hanazawa (the character artist for the game). The story is being done by the game’s story writer, Yasuyuki Mochida.

Song of Memories Novelization

This summer, a novel that follows the root of main heroine Fuuka Kamishiro called Song of Memories: Kakegae no Nai Mono (Something Irreplaceable) will be released in Japan. In addition to event stills featured in the game, the novel will use newly drawn illustrations on both the front cover and for some parts of the book.

Jun Hanazawa, who did character designs for the game, is doing the new illustrations. And Yasuyuki Mochida, who did the scenario for the game, is doing the story for the novel.

Lastly, Pure Wish announced that it is in the planning phase of its second project. It will feature AI characters like those in Song of Memories, but beyond that, the developers have not released any further information.

Following its first project, Song of Memories, Pure Wish is currently in planning of its second project. While AI characters such as those in Song of Memories will appear, further information has yet to be announced.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
