PM Studios and Acttil announced that in partnership with WMY Studio, they’ve released physical retail copies of the inventive visual novel WILL: A Wonderful World for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The game is currently available from Amazon and GameStop for $39.99.
This comes two years after the game originally launched in China for PC, followed by a Japanese and English release a year later in 2018 for PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. The game was only available in Japanese on the PS4 via digital download, while a 16+ version was made available for the Switch in Europe via the Nintendo eShop.
This is the first time that an ESRB version of the game is being made available for the Nintendo Switch and PS4 via physical retail release.
The game is actually very unique, insofar that it’s a visual novel where you take on the role of a young girl who wakes up one day in a mysterious room. She’s greeted by a talking dog who informs her that as gods it’s their job to to alter fate.
This comes from an urban legend about people desperately writing to God for help and bid to have their fate changed.
Players will have to read through the letters they receive and then begin to edit the letters and solve puzzles while you explore the stories and intertwining fates of the the different characters, each with their own aspirations, dreams, desires, and dark secrets.
How you affect the letters will determine how their lives will unfold, and it will unlock different plotlines and outcomes for the characters.
It’s a highly celebrated visual novel that’s a lot more involved than the typical kinetic stories out there.
A lot of people liked the way there was a measure of serious and lighthearted stories all fitted into one visual novel experience that kind of gives everyone a little bit of everything.
You can pick up a physical of the game at a local GameStop near you or you can visit the Switch page or PS4 page to find a store near you that carries a copy. Alternatively you can pick up the PC version of the game that’s currently available on the Steam store for just $14.99.
