Little Busters! English Edition | Intro group shot

Little Busters! English Edition | Team name

VisualArt’s has, at long last, released Little Busters! English Edition on Steam, after announcing the localization project back in late October 2015, alongside Tomoyo After ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ English Edition, which released in July of last year. The launch comes with a 20% discount for the first week, costing $27.99 USD as opposed to the base $34.99.

The new version includes a host of new features, such as touchscreen compatibility, the ability to switch between English and Japanese on the fly with the press of a button, 1280 x 720 resolution for the first time in a PC version, and more. Being based primarily on the Prototype’s PS3 port Little Busters! Converted Edition, it includes the Sasami, Kanata and Saya routes added in Little Busters! Ecstasy, but English Edition itself is all-ages.

The game’s main theme “Little Busters!” as well as Kud Wafter main theme song “One’s Future” also were briefly listed on the page as DLC, with the former available for free and the latter just as “TBA”, although they were removed as of time of writing. Whether they’ll be available by the morning or at some other point in the future remains to be seen at this time.
