1Get lost in these visual novels on Xbox One

Visual novels and Xbox One don’t often go hand-in-hand.

There aren’t many visual novels to choose from on Microsoft’s platform, but thankfully in recent years we’ve seen more and more come to Xbox One. Many of these come from indie developers, but that means we have a huge range of genres and stories to choose from. Dating monsters? We’ve got those. Talking dogs? Those too. Retellings of classic fairy stories? Yes, and those.

If you’re a fan of visual novels, you’ll find a bigger selection on PS4 or Switch. But if you’d rather play on Xbox One, not all is lost. Your choice may be smaller, but plenty of excellent titles exist.

We’ve rounded up 10 of the best visual novels on Xbox One right here. Click through to see our picks – you might just discover your next favourite VN.
