Default Clannad release date announced!

Clannad will be released on April 28th. 8,800 yen, DVD only, and, as was widely speculated, there will not be an adult version.

It's still unclear whether the game will be voiced or not; I can't find an official statement either way, just rampant speculation.

Pah, I was just about to post this. Oh well. I definitely want the voiced version. If this isn't it then I guess I will have to wait another 6 months or so.

8800 yen is about $80. Handy link: a currency converter.

I should probably warn you that even if I do end up translating Clannad, I probably wouldn't start till 2006 or finish till about 2040... ;)

Does this mean the estimated date of completion for your Kanon translation is 2006 too? =)

Nope, that's 2005. I was planning to take a week or two off between projects to get some sleep in... :p

Incidentally, they just dropped the price to 7500 yen ($70). I doubt anyone's going to complain about that.

Key has updated their page again. You can see the system requiment for Clannad. Slightly disappointed with 640x480 resolution. Very disppointed with キャラクターボイス(音声)はありません... No voice, what all the space on the DVD being used for?

Hmm, that is a bit disappointing. It definitely seems odd that they're requiring DVD (which many Japanese don't have), while still sticking with such low processor and graphics requirements. I was sure they'd at least have moved up to 800x600... but VisualArt's attitude to high resolution modes is a bit strange (AVG32 version 16 supported 800x600, but the newer version 17 only supported 640x480, and it looks like RealLive is the same).

The only conclusion is that Clannad must have a lot of graphics, for them to fill the quoted 2.5 gigabytes without voices. But at 640x480 even that would require... a lot of images. By comparison, Fate/stay night fits five thousand images into one gigabyte, and about half of those are 800x600...

Or maybe its lots of space in DVD-audio quality music...
Non 800x600 does put quite a damper on my enthusiasm...
As does non voiced...

Maybe it might be better to wait for the console version after all.

Oh, I don't know... the console versions won't be any higher resolution, and as for voice, well, I have no doubt there'll be a voice patch for Clannad within a few weeks of the console release. ^^

There are also a few direct advantages to buying the PC version. For one, you're supporting Key more directly; I imagine the console versions will be like Kanon and AIR, with NEC Interchannel or some such company taking a hefty cut of the profits. For another, it's rather less likely that anyone will translate the console versions, although obviously that only affects non-Japanese speakers. Then of course there's the little issue of getting it several months earlier...

Let's just say I shan't be waiting. ;)

If it's a lot of images, it's a lot of game too, right?

I won't buy it until it's at least partially translated, though, since I don't know Japanese at all x_x

...And if it's a big game it's a big script too...

Heh...but buying both the PC version and the Console version just so I can rip the voices will leave a very deep hole in my pocket >.<

Translating isn't a factor (thank you Japanese school)...but yep, the deciding factor right now is wait a few weeks or wait a few months... Himeya better have preorders up soon...
