This will be tagged as a rumour until we’ve recieved official confirmation, but we’ve received reports from multiple unrelated parties that Harmonia, Key’s upcoming Kinetic Novel, will be receiving a simultaneous English & Japanese release. The earliest source we’ve tracked down is two days ago, a tweet by @chuken168 featuring a photo from the Key panel at Creative Expo 02, mentioning that Harmonia will also be receiving an English release. Our second source is a post on our forum by member Achro, mentioning how he received word from VisualArt’s president Baba Takahiro himself at the Japan Expo Paris dinner that Harmonia would be receiving a simultaneous Japanese/English release by the end of the year.
Until we receive official confirmation from VisualArt’s themselves, all of this information will remain as unconfirmed rumours, so please don’t report this as confirmed news yet. But if these rumours do turn out to be true, then we believe that would place Comiket 89 as a very likely candidate for its first release.
We’ll update this post with any more sources as they come to light, and keep you informed via social media whether this rumour is confirmed or debunked. In the meantime, feel free to speculate about Harmonia’s release in our Pre-Release Discussion and Speculation Topic!
