It’s come out of Kadokawa’s E3 press conference (and correlated/translated by Rice Digital) that PQube will be the publisher bringing Kadokawa’s modern day mystery visual novel Root Letter to North America and Europe sometime in 2016.
This will be the third visual novel PQube are publishing in the West, following the console versions of Steins;Gate, as well as the release of Steins;Gate 0 later this year.
The text in the above picture also reveals the other two publishers for Southeast Asia and Korea: namely Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia (the same publisher behind the Moe Chronicle localisation) and Shinsekai, respectively.
Here is the translated text (credit goes fully to Rice Digital):
We have received more than 50k pre-orders in Japan and other Asian territories.
– Coming to Asian Territories 16th June (SIEJA)
– Coming to Korea Soon (Shinsekai)
– Coming Soon in 2016 NA & EU (PQube)
This is one of my most anticipated titles for this year, and I’m personally very happy to see it finally dated and the publisher for the West revealed.
Root Letter will be released on PS4 and PS Vita in English speaking territories at some point this year. We will let you know as soon as a date is confirmed.
