Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 Launches This Month on Nintendo Switch with Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 3 During Summer 2020

The ‘Grisaia’ franchise continues to expand on the Nintendo Switch as this month PROTOTYPE will release the visual novel collection Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 digitally onto the Nintendo Switch through the Nintendo eShop in Japan as well as release Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 3 at a later date during the Summer.

Currently only a Japanese Nintendo Switch release has been announced for these titles, but it is possible that these titles will be released worldwide at the same time. This is due to the fact that both Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 and Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 3 feature English text localisation and, more importantly, in the past PROTOTYPE have released other English localised visual novels, namely CLANNAD and The Grisaia Trilogy, digitally worldwide on the same day as Japan.

Much like the aforementioned titles Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2, along with Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 3, have also been released on STEAM as individual parts.


Grisaia: Phantom Trigger is a visual novel series set in the world of the acclaimed Grisaia franchise, featuring a totally new storyline and cast of characters, and brought to you by returning character artist Akio Watanabe and writer Ryuta Fujisaki.


This new incarnation of Mihama Academy is home to a diverse group of students, who every day work to polish their unusual skills – sometimes on the job. There’s a gunslinger called Rena (nickname: “The Rabid Dog”), a sniper named Tohka, a demolitions expert called Chris, a spy named Murasaki, and finally, Haruto, their handler. Together they make up an agency called SORD (Social Ops, Research & Development). The specialist training school now entrusts the misfit girls who attend it with guns and live ammunition in the name of national defense.

Paying their own safety no heed, these students are again and again plunged into dangerous extrajudicial missions—all for the good of the realm.

“We’ve been granted a place in the world.

That alone isn’t enough—there wouldn’t be any meaning in living, if that was all we had…

It’s not enough just to get by on the backs of others. I live by my own strength, and I fight to survive.

Because only the survivors among us belong with the living…”

No matter how much life grinds them down, what future awaits these girls, who’ve themselves chosen the path of the gun?

Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Vol. 1 & 2 will be available digitally from the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo Switch on the 25th June 2020 in Japan and will be priced at 2,500 YEN – which equates to around £20. Although PROTOTYPE have not mentioned a worldwide release for these games it is expected considering they have English text localisation and have released games worldwide on the same day in the past.
