Developer Numskull Games and publisher Spike Chunsoft have finally confirmed the HD remake of 90’s adult visual novel YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bounds of This World for those in Europe and Australia. The release is set for October 4 in both Europe and Australia, arriving three days after the North American version. Akin to the American version, YU-NO will see a physical and digital release in Europe. A physical release in Australia is possible but the county’s track record for physical releases of certain games is questionable, so Australians might have to wait and see.
Back in May, Numskull Games and Spike Chunsoft announced their plans to bring the game to the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The point to note about the original announcement was that Spike Chunsoft only confirmed the game for release in America, with those interested in the game left to wait and wonder whether it would come to their region.
In case you are interested in checking out YU-NO, here’s a rundown some key features of the game:
During his vacation from Sakaimachi Academy, Takuya Arima receives a package from his supposedly deceased father. It contains the mysterious Reflector Device, which allows the user to travel between parallel worlds. With help from his friends, teachers, and lovers, Takuya must unearth the mystery of his father’s legacy to prevent a calamity threatening to envelop reality itself.
– The Power of the Reflector – Explore multiple timelines and revisit events through the unique gaming mechanic of the Reflector Device. This allows you to explore every timeline in detail.
