Punch Line Heads West for PS4, PS Vita, and PC in Summer 2018

PQube has announced a western release for the 5pb.-developed visual novel based on the Punch Line anime.

The apocalyptic visual novel will launch across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and PS Vita sometime this summer in North America and Europe. Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the game.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Yūta Iridatsu is a pretty normal high school kid, with one exception: he faints if he sees girls’ panties. You never quite notice how frequent panty flashes can be until they ruin your day – he has to not look, or it’s lights out!

When he one day finds himself in the midst of a bus hijacking incident, he meets the famed vigilante crime fighter Strange Juice, and something unexpected happens to Yūta – his soul separates from his body. Stuck in a ghostly incorporeal form, he finds that his penchant for panties has disastrous consequences.

While a ghost form lends itself to panty sightings galore, allowing Yūta to wander unseen, looking up skirts and causing shenanigans, there’s a terrible catch: if he sees too many panties, Yūta gets too excited, faints, and somehow causes an asteroid to hit the Earth and destroy all life on the planet.

Able to travel back in time to before the destruction of the Earth, Yūta’s task is clear – solve this mystery! What happened to turn Yūta into a ghost? How can he time travel? Why does fainting at the sight of panties cause destruction of the world!?

Answers must be found! …right after checking out the panties on that girl over there.
