Double Pack for Switch shipped in Japan on Thursday
The official Twitter account of 5pb.‘s “Science Adventure” visual novel series teased an English release for Nintendo Switch “Double Pack” release of the Chaos;HEAd and Chaos;Child games on Thursday. The post only asked for people to wait for “further information about the English version.”
The Double Pack debuted in Japan on Thursday. The release is available as a physical package or a digital download.
The Double Pack includes Chaos;HEAd Noah, the first HD remastered version of the game previously released for the Xbox 360 and later ports. The initial run of the Double Pack includes the “Sexy Patch” for Chaos;HEAd Noah.
Chaos;HEAd is a visual novel that was originally debuted for PC in Japan in 2008. It was then later ported to the Xbox 360, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation Vita, and smartphone devices. (Chaos;HEAd NoaH was originally the name of the 2009 Xbox 360 port.) A television anime adaptation of Chaos;HEAd aired in Japan in 2008, and Funimation released the series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2011.
Chaos;Child first debuted on the Xbox One in 2014, and is a sequel to Chaos;HEAd. That first version allowed players to hear in-game phone calls via the controller, but the versions on other platforms changed this and other features. MAGES. and 5pb. Games shipped ports for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in Japan in June 2015 with a Z (18+) age rating. The game’s PC port launched in Japan in April 2016. PQube released the PS4 and Vita versions in North America and Europe in October 2017. The game’s English PC release debuted in January 2019.
