Are Visual Novels Turning Mainstream?

The 'visual novel' is a rather unknown videogame genre. Or is it? Professor Layton, Phoenix Wright and many other games are sneaking into the limelight by combining traditional visual novel storytelling with innovative gameplay elements. Do they have the potential to go mainstream? (3DS, BlazBlue Continium Shift, Dev, Katawa Shoujo, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, PSP, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward)

Although I love them, I don't really consider pure visual novels like Higurashi or Umineko to be games... however I like that there are more and more games nowadays that use visual novel aesthetics as their story telling device
