The official website of Key’s visual novel Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ has revealed that a new special edition of the game will be coming, featuring lots of new content, titled Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ Perfect Edition. Additionally, the Perfect Edition‘s website has announced that the game will be releasing on September 26.
Note: The game is an Adult Visual Novel and the images below feature NSFW content.
Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ Perfect Edition will be an updated edition to the 2005 visual novel Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~, which is in turn a spin-off of the 2004 VN Clannad. All these games were developed by Key and published by Visual Arts.
The Perfect Edition of the game will feature updated visuals and full voice acting, including redesigned Adult content and CGs. The game is based on the newer consumer versions that did not include any of the adult content from the original release as it was intended for all ages. The Perfect Edition will include the full adult content, since the original game’s production has stopped. The game will also expand on the minigame Dungeons & Takafumis, a small RPG that was available once the player beats the game. The RPG has been expanded and requires approximately 10 hours to complete.
Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ Perfect Edition follows Tomoya Okazaki (the player) after the events of the original Clannad, where he keeps in close contact with Tomoyo Sakagami. It is after Tomoya’s graduation where it is revealed that Tomoyo has a half sister and causes issues with her mother. She moves in with Tomoya, as does Tomoya’s brother and his ex girlfriend. The game focuses on the struggles of the characters as they deal with issues surrounding family.

Clannad is a Visual Novel developed by Key. It is the third developed game that released in April 2004 for Windows. The game received high sales and critical acclaim in Japan, with the regular edition selling over 100,000 copies in 2004. The game has then received a light novel, and three manga adaptations. There will also be a PlayStation Vita port of the game. The game also received an animated film from Toei Animation, who also produced the animated films for Key’s other VNs (Kanon, Air). A TV anime was produced by Kyoto Animation that aired in 2007, and was followed up by a second season in 2008 titled Clannad ~After Story~. You can read our reviews for the two shows.
Here is a synopsis of the series from MAL:
Okazaki Tomoya is a delinquent who finds life dull and believes he’ll never amount to anything. Along with his friend Sunohara, he skips school and plans to waste his high school days away.
One day while walking to school, Tomoya passes a young girl muttering quietly to herself. Without warning she exclaims “Anpan!” (a popular Japanese food) which catches Tomoya’s attention. He soon discovers the girl’s name is Furukawa Nagisa and that she exclaims things she likes in order to motivate herself. Nagisa claims they are now friends, but Tomoya walks away passing the encounter off as nothing.
However, Tomoya finds he is noticing Nagisa more and more around school. Eventually he concedes and befriends her. Tomoya learns Nagisa has been held back a year due to a severe illness and that her dream is to revive the school’s drama club. Claiming he has nothing better to do, he decides to help her achieve this goal along with the help of four other girls.
Tomoyo After: ~It’s a Wonderful Life~ Perfect Edition will be releasing on September 29th this year on PC. It will be compatible with Windows Vista, 7 and 8, and will cost ¥4,800 (~ $48 USD).
