According to Wikipedia:

"The idea behind The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince came from a web designer during an internal pitching contest within Nippon Ichi Software. Such contests are held annually at the company and earlier editions resulted in the development of games such as htoL#NiQ: The Firefly Diary and Yomawari: Night Alone. The game was revealed in January 2018 during a live-broadcast video presentation.

In August 2018, NIS America announced they were publishing the game in North America and Europe in 2019, only for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. NIS America also released a limited physical edition that includes a special book and physical copy of the soundtrack."
