After initially planning to release on PC on August 8, 2019, Melbourne-based developer Route 59 Games have announced that their upcoming visual novel title Necrobarista will now launch a little later on in Q3 2019, with the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 versions still slated for release sometime in 2020.
The studio cited “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason for the delay, but were quick to assure fans that allowing the game to percolate a tad longer would be much more beneficial in the long run (sick coffee pun).
Route 59 Games also stated that the additional time will allow them to not only further polish the game before release, but to also add more language support options at launch. These language options include English, French, French (Canadian), Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Russian, Turkish, Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, and Dutch.
While the delay is undoubtedly upsetting, I’m more than happy to wait a little longer and let my hype continue to brew (that pun was horrendous but I had to).
Those keen to be notified of updates regarding Necrobarista’s development are encouraged to follow Route 59 Games on Twitter, as well as join the Necrobarista community on both Facebook and Discord. A new release date will be announced via these platforms in the near future.
Necrobarista, the anime-inspired visual novel in which you work as a Barista serving the dead is slated for release in Q3 2019. If that sounds up your alley why not take a gander at our Made In Australia interview where we spoke to Route 59 about the development of the game.
