In Japanese terminology, a distinction is often made between visual novels abbreviated NVL, derived from "novel" , which consist predominantly of narration and have very few interactive elements, and adventure games abbreviated AVG, or ADV derived from "adventure" , which may incorporate problem-solving and other types of gameplay. This distinction is normally lost outside Japan, where both NVLs and ADVs are commonly referred to as "visual novels" by international fans. Visual novels are rarely produced for video game consoles , but the more popular games have occasionally been ported to systems such as the Sega Saturn , Dreamcast , PlayStation Portable , or Xbox The more famous visual novels are also often adapted into light novels , manga or anime.
