Publisher PROTOYPE and developer Key have announced planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet & Snow Globe, a new double pack re-release.

planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet & Snow Globe includes both the original planetarian and its prequel, Snow Globe, and will release on June 27th for Nintendo Switch. Language support includes English, Japanese, and more.

It’s worth noting planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet & Snow Globe can be purchased individually already on Switch worldwide (via the eShop), though this is the first time Snow Globe will be available on Switch after its 2021 debut.

Here’s a rundown on both games:

planetarian: The Reverie of a Little Planet

‘Please do not divide Heaven in two.’ The Planetarian HD remaster is making its way to the Nintendo Switch!

Sarcophogus City, a city where the rain never ceases, sets the stage for the emotional tale of a Junker and a Robot, Yumemi, shaped like a young woman. Planetarian is a sci-fi visual novel, brought to life with beautiful art and a stirring soundtrack.

Planetarian was produced by Japanese studio Key, the creators of CLANNAD and Little Busters! Since hitting the Japanese market in 2004 for the PC, its popularity has led to novel and audiobook adaptations, as well as console ports of the original game. In 2016, it was adapted into a web anime and an animated feature film.


Ceaseless rain… Hit by a biological weapon thirty years ago, Sarcophagus City lingered as a vestige manned only by autonomous fighter drones. An exhausted man headed inside a building seeking refuge. Long ago, many would have entered this planetarium, to gaze longingly into the stars, to soothe their sorrows, and to find a sense of peace.

In this place of healing, he met a lone girl; a run-down robotic guide who had waited thirty long years for a visitor to come. Her name was Yumemi. Her one wish was for someone to repair the broken projector.

Endless rain… The man’s fleeting days with Yumemi reminded him of days long gone. As he worked tirelessly to fix that which was broken he wondered, what would he wish for when he finally gazed into those artificial stars? What fate lied before Yumemi?

planetarian: Snow Globe

This story occurs before the events of the war that brought the world to ruin; at this point, Yumemi has been working at the Flowercrest Department Store’s rooftop planetarium for about ten years. One day, Yumemi begins to act strangely, culminating in her simply walking out and wandering around the town. The staff of the planetarium are bewildered, and one of the workers—a woman named Satomi Kurahashi—is ordered to go follow Yumemi and bring her back. Before long, Yumemi begins to run out of battery power.
