Who needs real love and friendship when video games can provide them for you? Visual novel series Clannad has been appearing on nearly every possible gaming platform since its debut in 2004, with games on PSP, PS2, 360, and PC. Now, it’s about to hit up the PlayStation 3 as well. On April 21, Japan will receive the PS3’s fist Clannad game. Here are some screens and the box art:
As usual for the genre, the player is faced with lots and lots of choices throughout play, most of which will have some impact on the story and ending. Visual novels, particularly love adventures, and particularly school-themed ones at that, have traditionally not been localized outside Japan, and this one has little chance of going against that trend.
