Undead Coffee Adventure Necrobarista Is Taking Some Extra Time To Brew

A little more time to percolate never hurt.

The coffee bar in the afterlife will have to wait a little while longer. Route 59 Games announced today that their cinematic visual novel Necrobarista is taking some extra time to work on the game, and are now aiming for a "tad later" in Q3 2019 for the PC version.

In a press release, Route 59 Games confirms that the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch iterations are still set for a release date in 2020. The PC version, however, will need a little extra time past its previous release date of August 8.

"While the team is eager to share Necrobarista with fans, it was determined taking a bit more time and allowing the game to percolate a little longer will be for the best," writes Route 59 Games in a press release sent out today.

The delay does also mean there's some extra time to add more language support options at launch. Necrobarista will support English, Japanese, Turkish, Russian, Chinese, and even Brazilian Portuguese, which will be good news for some spurned Brazilian Switch fans in 2020.

Necrobarista is a "cinematic" visual novel, in that it uses first-person adventure sequences and dynamic camera angles to add new dimensions to the visual novel concept. The setting of the game, The Terminal, is like an in-between for spirits to still visit with the living one last time, and it happens to be set in a coffee shop.

It seems like an interesting game with an especially gorgeous art style. We're looking forward to seeing the whole thing once it's ready to go sometime in Q3 2019.
