How would you cite a visual novel in MLA?

Recommended Posts

How do I do parathetical citation? 

How would I cite a visual novel like Fate/Stay Night  on a works cited page?

I am asking because I have no idea because some VNs have different versions, translations, etc.

I assume you went over this already, but there's this link. Defining which version the specific quote came from should be easy - either it's the original version (PC, 2004, fan translated by Mirror Moon) or the PS2 version (full name Fate/Stay Night Realta Nua, 2007), depending on the scene you're quoting.

 

So it's either

Quote

Fate/Stay Night. Windows, 2004.

or

Quote

Fate/Stay Night Réalta Nua. PlayStation 2, 2007.

You can add "Translated by Mirror Moon" (thus Fate/Stay Night. Translated by Mirror Moon, Windows, 2004.) if you want, but I'm not sure it's essential.
