"Idea Factory made some big bank in Japan off of their visual novels. They flooded the PS2 market with them, and the Japanese ate them up. Now Idea Factory is looking to continue that success, and they are going to see how things work out on the DS. Honestly, the platform is a perfect choice for these type of games. The interface should make for a much more natural experience, and the platform is hugely popular. Their first visual novel for the DS is Hiiro no Kakera DS, and if it does well, Idea Factory will have found a new home for their niche titles."
