This edition of RPGs Coming This Week is, once again, for the visual novel enjoyers. And yet, I feel like now’s a good time for unversed folks to check it out. With everything going on lately, I know for sure I’d love a quiet evening reading an engrossing tale on my Nintendo Switch. If that sounds like a good time for you, definitely read on!

Hookah Haze – July 11th (Switch, Windows)

This new game comes to us from Acquire, a studio known for experimental games that tend to go under the radar. Hookah Haze is, predictably, a little odd. It’s a visual novel/point-and-click adventure game about a person with a terminal illness who comes to run a hookah lounge in Akihabara. The story is all about getting to know three patrons by bonding over shared problems and trauma while smoking shisha. It seems chill for sure, and I’m eager to see where the story goes.

Also Coming This Week

Muv-Luv Remastered & Muv-Luv Alternative Remastered – July 11th (Switch)

The acclaimed VNs Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative are coming this week to the Switch. The latter in particular is an epic payoff to the first game, according to fans, and well worth the dosh. If you were waiting for the series to come out on Switch, now is the time, especially since it’s launching at a 10% introductory discount until the month ends.

One thing: these games have the “remastered” tag on them, and the big change has to do with the interface. Information online is a little scarce, so I can’t say much more on that front.
