AniTAY: So then with that upcoming [Rewrite] anime adaptation, what do you think are the odds of bringing that visual novel westward?
Takahiro Baba via Translator: Yes. There are plans for an English release. With the [anime release] of Rewrite, there will be a new story arc added and those will be incorporated into a new version called Rewrite+ and, once that is made, that will be localized to English and may be made available on Steam.
