While the PlayStation Vita is currently the best place to play visual novels (other than PC, obviously), the PlayStation 4 has been slowly building a very solid line-up. Last week that library grew with the addition of two of the Vita’s best games as the first two games in the Danganronpa series came to PS4 as Danganronpa 1&2 Reload (make sure to read our review). This marks a big change in the visual novel scene, as more and more titles are now making their way to PlayStation 4 as Vita support begins to dwindle.
Since the PS4 is becoming the console to play visual novels on, we decided to highlight some games that are already worth playing on the system. We only included games that either are out in English or are being localized, so that meant Japanese-only titles won’t be on the list. Since that limited what we could choose from, we also highlighted a few ports of known quantities that will be out soon.
With that out of the way, check out our list below of 10 visual novels that are worth playing both now and in the near future!
We hope you enjoyed our look at 10 visual novels that are worth playing both now and in the near future. While we mostly focused on already released titles, there are plenty of other interesting looking visual novels that are coming to PlayStation 4. These include many Sekai Project ports such as Rabi-Ribi, Root Double: Before Crime After Days Xtend Edition, and fault milestone. It’s really a great time to be a fan of visual novels, as we’re seeing classic games get localized, and plenty of fascinating new titles.
Let us know in the comments below which PS4 visual novels you’ve enjoyed playing, and which ones you are looking forward to in the future!
