Aksys Games has announced that they’ll be bringing the Idea Factory developed title to North America and Europe this Fall.

Otome visual novel Norn9: Var Commons is officially coming our way now – so if you’re not in the know about the title we’re going to have to fix that (with Aksys’ official PlayStation Blog description);

“While on a school field trip, child prodigy Sorata Suzuhara wanders off after hearing a mysterious song and blacks out. When he comes to, he finds himself in unfamiliar place, and soon encounters a girl who informs him that he’s currently in turn of the century Japan.

In order to help him get home, Sorata follows her to a ship that she’s waiting for but when it appears it is not a wooden sailing ship, but a round aircraft that flies using technology that is beyond Sorata’s imagination. Even stranger, he discovers that the other 12 passengers — 3 young women and 9 men — are all supposedly espers with special powers, and are on some kind of journey at the behest of a multinational entity only known as The World.

What is the purpose of their journey? What is their destination? Who is The World? Before Sorata can even begin to take stock of his situation, the ship is attacked, and the mystery surrounding the ship only deepens. Delve into the story of the ship and its occupants through the point of views of each of the three girls, and unravel the mysteries trapped within.”


Norn9: Var commons promises to deliver a complex, diverging storyline with the fate of its lively characters lying in your hands. The question is; are you ready for it?

It’ll be available in the West sometime this Fall, so be sure to check TVL for updates between now and then. 😉

    I don’t know why we’re getting all of these visual novels all of a sudden, but I approve. And I’m glad this one is getting a retail release.

      Were getting them cause there’s a lot of ladies out there somewhere who are voting with their wallets. Hopefully more guys start popping up, so we can see more dating/harem games localized too. TVL has covered some games I wouldn’t mind seeing brought over here 🙂

  • Nonscpo

    From what I’ve read on other comment sections covering this game, this title appears to have a decent mystery portion to it 🙂

  • Ichigo Yoite

    Well – will preorder that the moment it is possible 🙂 Its great to see that they are bringing more Visual Novels to the west <3
