Libra of the Vampire Princess, an upcoming visual novel and eroge featuring vampires, has found its way onto Steam Greenlight via MiKandi Japan.
[UPDATE] Libra of the Vampire Princess has been successfully greenlit on Steam on the 7th of October 2015. [/UPDATE]
The well-known adult game publisher MiKandi Japan has entered the erotic visual novel market with onomatope*’s upcoming title Libra of the Vampire Princess. While the VN will not be released in Japan until the 30th of October of this year, MiKandi has already started preparations in bringing the title to the Western world. The game has already been put on Steam Greenlight, and a Kickstarter to fund the title’s translation will be created later this fall.
Check out Libra of the Vampire Princess’ plot synopsis taken from the official Steam Greenlight page and some screenshots from game’s Getchu store page.
A Story of Battle, Blood, and Love!
Syuma Kusanagi is just an ordinary boy…
Until the day he is suddenly abducted by a mysterious girl named Iris. She reveals to him a hidden secret about his birth…
Coursing through his veins, Syuma has a special kind of blood – vampire blood passed down from his progenitors. Iris is known as a “ringleader” vampire who also has this ancestral blood. Her destiny: to “awaken” Syuma.
In his attempt to flee her clutches, Iris pounces on him to finish the embrace! Luckily, at the very last moment, the keepsake ring given to Syuma by his mother emits a blinding light that interrupts her vicious attack.
Syuma breaks free and escapes from Iris, but soon realizes something inside him has gone amiss. Could he have become an odd, partially-turned vampire? Now, many girls are entering his life from many directions and complicating the situation. To make matters worse, he is plagued from an overwhelming impulse to suck…
… their blood.
What will happen next is for you to decide!
In another stroke of good news, a MiKandi Japan representative has confirmed in a Greenlight discussion thread that Libra of the Vampire Princess will be getting a free patch reinstating all the scenes cut from the game’s Steam release.
Yes, we are excited to be bringing a new game that is not even out in Japan yet. It is one of our main and maybe unique points, so we are very happy you picked up on that.
To answer your “big question”… Yes there will be an uncut version. Xero is not just cutting out scenes for the Steam/Kickstarter release though. Their writers are working hard to make this version just as great. Here is our “big question”: Which do you prefer to play? 😀
To address other concerns… Xero is spending next week debugging the Japanese version. Once complete, we will release gameplay screenshots ^_^
Check Twitter for some behind the scenes photos.
We are also working to subtitle the trailer. Sorry that was not completed before we started the Greenlight process, but it is coming soon!
Thanks for the support. Let’s bring Japanese games to the West!
The planned release for English version of Libra of the Vampire Princess is planned for fall 2016. For further updates on the translation project be sure to follow MiKandi Japan’s Twitter account and regularly visit their official website (soon to get an English version).
One of our writer’s sanahtlig has created a short poll titled “Libra of the Vampire Princess: Adult version or non-adult version, which would you play?”. Please take part in it if you have the time. We are curious about your answers!
LewdGamer will, of course, inform you on further developments regarding the project’s future as soon as they happen.
