Hong Kong - March 16, 2020 –
Independent developer and publisher, Eastasiasoft Limited, today announced that the yuri-themed mystery visual novel SeaBed for Nintendo Switch will join the eastasiasoft Limited Edition line-up this summer. Pre-orders will be available on March 19th at online retailer Playasia.

Originally created by Japanese developer Paleontology and localized by Fruitbat Factory, SeaBed tells the story of three young women as they try to make sense of their lives. Sachiko is a designer haunted by visions of her former lover, Takako is an adventurous type who is rapidly losing memories of that relationship, and Narasaki is a psychiatrist friend observing them as she studies human memory.

Explore the world through the eyes of these women, from childhood into their adult lives, separate truth from illusion and solve the mysteries surrounding them. Experience a heartfelt narrative about love, loss, memory and the pursuit of true happiness through scenes ranging from slice-of-life adventure to deep romance.

SeaBed was originally released in Japan in 2016 and quickly drew the attention of visual novel enthusiasts in both Japan and abroad. The Nintendo Switch version of SeaBed features two new scenes that have never been seen before, as well as added localization.
