Any other VN with ability to switch languages
Are there any other visual novels in Steam in which you can change languages simply by pressing key button or by any similar way?

If I well remember in Nekopara you can put both languages at the same time. That said, do not expect Nekopara to be as good as Little Busters in anything

I didn't even finish Little Busters! yet, still learning new things while playing but progress is going ve~ry slow, I still haven't finished fourth day, lol.
But I just wanna know how many VNs have such a nice feature in Steam. Love, Money, Rock'n'Roll is a very decent looking project from Soviet Games that created Everlasting Summer, but this project is far more professionally created than its past made-from-fans-for-fun visual novel. There is demo already available with English, Chinese (traditional and simplified) and Japanese translations, and I asked them if they could add this feature. It seems like many VNs on Steam have multiple languanges, but most of them need to be re-launched. Several has an option in the settings, but you need open main menu, click "Options", choose another language, close menu, and only then you will be able to read the same text in another language.
P.S. I've read Japanese version of Love, Money, Rock'n'Roll, but I don't know if my Japanese is stiil sucks or their translation is weird, because I googled some things and still couldn't understand some sentences, when I'm pretty good in understanding texts in other visual novels (but still have a lot of things to be learned).

I have been also learning japaneses since 4 or 5 years and still have that kind of problems.
If I well remember Koropokkur in Love (not released yet) is going to have the same language change function of Little Busters.
It's true that Little Busters is really slow in the common route since is a 98% slice of life / comedy section but get really interesting once you go into the routes. The Little Busters history is good but the best of LB (for me) are the characters.

I found that in Muv-Luv you also can switch languages just by pressing L button.

If you own a ps4 there is clannad, same company that made this game. Only the ps4 version has multi langauge. Grisaia Phantom Trigger has multi langauge too. The only others I can thiink of is nekopara, KARAKARA and japanese school life. I think higurashi and umineko might too not super sure. Those are all that come to my mind.

Thanks, guys, for your answers.
I searched my library a little and that's what I've found:
a) VNs, where you can switch languages by pressing one button:
1. Little Busters!
2. Muv-Luv
3. Higurashi no Naku koro ni (don't know what about umineko)
b) VNs, where you can switch languages by pressing several buttons and can have both languages simultaneously on the screen (but when you choose two languages simultaneously, font becomes too small for me, so I prefer "several buttons" method):
1. Nekopara (did you know that you can press Alt->L->EorJ to change language quickly)
2. Karakara (don't think it's different enough from previous one to be counted as separate point, but that's okay, I guess)
3. Grisaia Phantom Trigger
c) VNs, where you can only swtch languages by pressing several buttons
1. Hitomebore (Love at First Sight) (don't know what is it doing among my possessions, lol)
d) VNs, where you can switch languages in game menu and can't do it simply by pressing buttons
1. LMR (Love, Money, Rock'n'Roll)
I don't have Japanese School Life, so I don't know to what group it should belong. Of course, that's not a whole list, and there are some yet undiscovered. But it seems like a lot of great VNs like Clannad, G-senjou no Maou, Grisaia no Kajitsu and such don't even have japanese language on Steam. It's a pitty, really! And if I want to play something serious and learn some Japanese, the diversity of choices is not big enough, I guess: Little Busters!, Muv-Luv have a lot of slice-of-life stuff, maybe Grisaia is too... pretentious, fantastic, a lot of pathos, don't know how to express it well enough in English, sorry. Higurashi is cool, but what if I want to listen to some Japanese voices?.. Of course, I can still play great visual novels like Steins;Gate or Planetarian or some VNs which are actually not on Steam, but then I won't have such a nice feature( Wish Sekai Project would release more VNs with dynamic switching like in Little Busters!.

Fault milestone 1 and 2. They used to have a hotkey for switching the languages, but last time I checked I couldn't do it anymore yet you can still switch it by pausing as in this game. Great VNs
