Back in January 2023, publisher Bushiroad Games and developer Frontwing announced that the visual novel GINKA was getting a Switch release. Today we’ve learned that the game is finally set to arrive on September 19th, 2024.

In Japan, there will be a standard edition for 3,520 yen, the limited edition at 13,200 yen, and the limited edition with body pillow cover at 27,500 yen. The limited edition includes a B2-size tapestry, visual book, acrylic key holder, and a soundtrack CD featuring background music from the game, as well as the full opening and ending theme songs. The limited edition with body pillow cover adds a Ginka body pillow cover, and a “lying down with Ginka (voiced by Ikumi Hasegawa)” voice CD. If you’d like to get a look at all these extra goodies, you can find a series of photos here.

Five years ago, Aoba Ryusei’s childhood friend, Shinomiya Ginka, disappeared without a trace on the night of the summer festival. The superstitious islanders believed this to be an act of God, saying that she was “spirited away.”

Now in high school, Ryusei decides to visit the island over summer break. He needs to know: Did Ginka ever come back? Could she be living a normal high school life?

Sadly, his faint hopes are crushed when he learns that Ginka was never seen again after that night. He dejectedly prepares to depart, but then he meets a young girl who looks exactly like his missing childhood friend― Ginka.

“Welcome back, Ryusei.”

The girl doesn’t know her own name. All she knows is that she loves Ryusei.

Where has she been? Why hasn’t she aged? Finally reunited with his long lost friend, Ryusei vows to have the best summer vacation ever on the tranquil little island of his childhood.
