Visual novel developer Sprite has shared some positive news regarding their upcoming release of the Switch port of their bishoujo VN, Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue. Sprite have confirmed that the Switch version is already profitable based on preorder sales data. This bodes well for the future of visual novels on Nintendo Switch.

Here is a description of the game’s scenario, via VNDB:

In a world where flying is as simple as riding a bicycle, there is a popular sport called “Flying Circus.”

The protagonist once had a bright future ahead of him in that field of sports but due to an overwhelming defeat in addition to a certain other reason, he has left that field.

However, he meets the transfer student Kurashina Asuka and regains his passion as he teaches her how to fly.

With his situation changed, he participates once again in the Flying Circus. Just how high will he be able to fly this time with Asuka at his side?

This is a love story about the two who met while soaring in the skies, and the friends surrounding them.

Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue is currently available in Japan on PS4, PS Vita and PC. It will release for the Nintendo Switch in Japan at the end of this month. No word on a Western release.
