I see many VN's have the Android icon for platform support from: link

But I'm not able to download/see any of them from Google Playstore like Clannad, Ever 17, Fate/Stay Night.

How can I play these games on my Android device?Last modified on 2019-05-01 at 10:33

I don't think many of these can be found on Google Play mainly because they are patches/fan ports most of the time (or they're only on Japan's play store)

Anyway, what you can do is click on the Android release of the game you want on its vndb page and then click on 'Official website' on the release page. Doing this for fate/stay night for example gets you here.

It's highly likely that many of these Android ports won't work anymore but I'd say that looking for them like this is your best bet.Last modified on 2019-05-01 at 11:53

I know Tom (another user here.) reads a few on android. I use Gyutto for some music, and he for some VNs. (afaik....)

I'll go ahead and presume you can't read Japanese, though. Some of these only have fan-patched English android releases. You also get titles like link which is available on android, but only the JP release.

FSN is available here, for example link
There are a few officially available in English, like link I'd recommend going for them.Last modified on 2019-05-01 at 16:11

I played Ever17 on android. Actually it´s for Nintendo DS homebrew but someone made an app called VNDS Interpreter which can play those games as well on android.

you need to get the game on your pc and convert it to a format VNDS can read unless someone else already has done it for you

In addition to the VNDS ports, you can also emulate PSP games and old console games on your android device. I've done a search for you of everything in English that might possibly work, depending on whether or not the emulator for the console works as intended: link . Keep in mind that some emulators require you to have the BIOS for the console in order to run the game, and that the BIOS may need to be from a Japanese console in order to run (fan patched)games that are region locked.

If you want Japanese VNs, get MoeAPP for all ages titles, and for adult titles this website (NSFW, ads) link has a list of places. VNDB is fairly incomplete for Japanese Android releases, so you'll have to search those places to see if they have what you want. I used to think Gyutto is one of the few sites that sell them, but there's a whole bunch of other storefronts for them as well.

Edit: fixed link

Edit 2: Forgot to mention that you can also look into KiriKiriroid2, it might run some PC VNs on your android device.Last modified on 2019-05-02 at 06:15
