    It seems many developers found a home for their visual novel releases on the Switch and some releases can even be considered the technically best versions (like the Grisaia Trilogy Switch port, for the first time in 1080p). I've just checked VNDB and it seems like there are many VNs not yet released in English on the system, like Summer Pockets or Higurashi and quite some other titles. I wonder if any modder or modding team has currently any project ongoing or even finished?

    Issue is that many of those VNs are ported by external studios using their own engine (f.e. Clannad, Grisaia, Little Busters), which makes easy reimplementing files not possible. And because VNs are very low demanding, many of them are encrypted.

    Dies Irae is using the same engine, but english version is using special table converter that makes straightforward porting text not possible because of different encoding + they changed how some dialogues are played and they added additional scenarios.

    There was also one more VN which could use english files from PC with little tweaks, but game on Switch was using system font and it was too big for text, which resulted in text going outside of screen. Someone would need to find how to change font size, because changing font seems not possible.
