Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Visual novel Norn9 coming west from Idea Factory

While the world and dog waits for next week's Steins;Gate release, it looks like other publishers are smelling money in the visual novel market. Idea Factory is bringing us Norn9: Var Commons, something I'd never heard of before, so it must be pretty niche? Or maybe Otome fans have been crying out for this?

There's a PSN blog post up with some details, with a fantasy world of mixed-era technology and three girls in need of answers trapped on a boat full of mysterious passengers. While I like the idea of some top-end visual novels coming west, I hope the Vita doesn't become a shovel magnet for them. Is this high-end story telling?

The game will be retail and digital in the States, digital only in Europe.
