Otome Game BUSTAFELLOWS is coming to the West!

Developers, Extend announced an English version for the Otome title, Bustafellows, today during their first-anniversary event.

For those who have not heard of the game, Bustafellows is a crime-suspense visual novel otome game that was initially released in Japan back on December 19, 2019, for the Nintendo Switch and Mobile (iOS and Android) platforms.

Read the game’s synopsis below (from VNDB):

The east American town of New Seeg. Limbo Fitzgerald, who is well-known as a crooked lawyer, received an urgent defense request and made his way to the police station. There, he met a man who told him, “Without this meeting, destiny would have killed you, Limbo.” The man’s strange words confused Limbo. And then the man said, with an unnatural and woman-like tone, “‘Today’ is a rerun for me. I saw you die with my own eyes.”

Yui Kondo (as the main protagonist)
Jun Fukuyama (Mozu)
