Song Of Memories Switch Cancelled due to development complicationson January 9, 2019 by Reuben Mount
Some things are sadly not meant to be. PQube have revealed this afternoon that the Playstation 4 version of Song of Memories will release worldwide on February 1st 2019. However, owing to development complications, they announced simultaneously that the Song of Memories Switch version has been cancelled.
Our friends at PQube, after suffering the loss of Omega Labyrinth Z last year, have informed us of this change to the release of Song of Memories as we are one of the key stockists for the game.
The West isn’t missing out per-se, as Japan has not seen a Song of Memories Nintendo Switch version either, and PQube themselves have stated that this cancellation is owing to it not being of a “functioning level of quality our fans demand”.
In their official release:
Today, PQube announces the release date of the romantic visual novel Song of Memories on PlayStation 4. The love story that turned the Japanese genre upside down with its surprising twist releases worldwide on February 1st. While the PlayStation 4 version and the special Encore Edition are confirmed, we regrettably had to cancel the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Unfortunately, Song of Memories can’t be brought to a functioning level of quality our fans demand on the Switch due to development complications.
This means, unfortunately, that we cannot fulfil pre-orders of the Nintendo Switch edition of the title made from the Rice Digital Store, and everyone that has ordered this format will receive an e-mail shortly regarding their pre-order as well as details on how to Switch to PS4 if they so wish. The Nintendo Switch format of the game has also been removed from the Store listings.
Song of Memories will now launch for PlayStation 4 on February 1st 2019 in both a standard and Encore Edition. You can check out the brand new trailer for the game below.
