If you haven’t heard already, the game starts out when Sorata Suzuhara faints during a field trip after wandering off after hearing a song. He eventually wakes up in a mysterious place during another time period. Instead of controlling him, however, you will experience the events through the points of views of three girls.
As you may expect from a visual novel game, Norn9: Var Commons has multiple branching paths and endings (include a true epilogue to unlock) depending on the players choices. It total, you can get 24 different endings.
If that wasn’t enough, the game features music composed by Nobuo Uematsu, who is best known for his work with the Final Fantasy series. The animated background was also done by Mioru Akiba, who worked on the Pokemon film series. So, if you are a fan of visual novels, you might want to check out Norn9: Var Commons when it launches exclusively for the Vita later this year in the U.S.
