Planetarian HD Released on Steam in Chinese

Planetarian HD is now available on Steam. But wait, wasn’t it already there? Last year, publisher Sekai Project released Planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ on Steam.

Now, developer VisualArts/Key have pushed the game themselves onto the platform – but only in Chinese. Why is this version notable? It features higher resolution graphics (1280×960 versus the original 800×600) and Trading Cards. VisualArts also revealed that they are working on English and German translations for the game.

This means they’re not using Sekai Project’s own Planetarian English translation but are doing it from scratch. It’s certainly an interesting move. Planetarian HD is available for a launch week discount of $7.99.
