At the INDIE Live Expo Winter 2022 DAY2 broadcast, Playism announced that the previously-released language-deciphering game 7 Days to End with You will be making its way to Nintendo Switch on January 26, 2023.
The visual novel was previously launched for iOS, Android, and Steam earlier this year and this new version will feature refined translations, additional endings, and a gallery mode.
In 7 Days to End with You, players must guess and decipher an unknown language to understand the story. You play as a character with memory loss, and there’s a mysterious character trying to communicate with you. Still, you can’t understand what they are saying since you forgot the language. Add words to your glossary and try to overcome the language barrier as you find your way through this seven-day tale.

▍7 Days to End with You Synopsis
You don’t know a single word in the language of this world.
Deduce the meanings of words the person before you use to communicate with you.
Then try to understand them like a puzzle, one piece at a time.
You are free to perceive the meaning of the words you read.
The relationship between the two characters is built on the words you interpret.
And their story is also built on the words you interpret.
Their world changes according to your understanding.
Maybe their story is a short, ordinary story, or maybe it’s a long, peculiar story.
Or both stories could exist at the same time. There’s nothing wrong with that.
The story is only complete with your interpretation.
So indeed, every story your interpretation results in is correct.
Even if you don’t understand the story at first,
you have the opportunity to repeat it over and over again.
This is a short and long story, of only seven days.
