VisualArt’s announced through a post on their Facebook page that the release of Little Busters! English Edition on Steam has been delayed. Previously set for a release by the end of August, the announcement states that the game has been delayed to a more vague “autumn 2017” window.

VisualArt’s cites the reasons for the delay as to “refine the new ‘LUCA’ game system and the English translation”. The LUCA system in question is the new engine for English Edition, which allows for the switching languages on the fly as well as touchscreen compatibility for devices that have them.
