YU-NO Heads West for PC, PS4, and Switch on October 1

Spike Chunsoft has announced a western release for YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of this World.

The classic sci-fi visual novel, newly updated for modern platforms, is coming west on October 1st across Windows PC (via Steam), PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

In a separate blog post Spike Chunsoft, Spike Chunsoft detailed the content being censored in the game “in order to secure a release in the west on consoles.” The changes include:

  • Sala Oasis Scene – A sunbeam is placed over Sala’s naked lower body.
  • Symbols – Some cursor interaction symbols have been replaced with the “investigation” symbol. The story content and gameplay remains the same; only the cursor symbol itself has been replaced.

It’s worth noting these changes don’t affect the PC version, which is identical to the Japanese release.

Here’s a rundown on the game:
