Ecchi visual novel and eroge developer winged cloud has partnered up with publisher MangaGamer. Two new winged cloud games have been announced as well.
Known for their series of ecchi Sakura games, visual novel producer winged cloud has partnered up with MangaGamer. The announcement comes from MangaGamer’s official blog, where they provide some insight on their decision to establish a partnership with the popular indie studio.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve partnered with English-language visual novel developer, Winged Cloud! We’re really excited about the prospects this new partnership holds for Winged Cloud and visual novels. Their games have always been well known for their artwork and their sexy situations, but we believe this partnership will help Winged Cloud explore their strong suits with less content restraints as they start challenging themselves in a new direction. We want to help nurture their visual novel development as they continue to grow.
To promote the new partnership deal, MangaGamer is now offering the adult version of one of winged cloud’s latest titles, Sakura Swim Club. In addition to that, MG has also announced two new upcoming titles in the Sakura series. The first one, Sakura Santa (already available for pre-order) is an all-ages winter holiday themed romantic story, the plot summary of which can be read in this very article.
Koji is feeling a bit down. He’s spending Christmas alone for the first time this year! After moving away from home to attend the university of his dreams, he found his college life to be rather lonely. Feeling distraught, he wanders around a local shrine to make an offering. His wish is a simple one:
“I want to have someone to spend Christmas with this year.”
Shortly after making that wish, he meets three girls, all with unusual quirks. All of them want to spend time with him in the days leading up to Christmas, leaving Koji with quite the dilemma. Who should he spend Christmas with this year?
The second title, Sakura Dungeon, is heavily focused on gameplay and not just visual novel portions, unlike most of the prior Sakura games. Sakura Dungeon will have an all-ages Steam version and an adult version, which will be published directly on MangaGamer’s platform.
Sakura Dungeon will tell the tale of a Knight and Foxgirl as they work together to clear a dungeon full of monsters, featuring a combat system packed full of skills, strategy, and cute monster girls to recruit into your party. Sakura Dungeon is currently estimated for a Quarter 1 2016 release.
LewdGamer is curious how this new business venture will work out for both of the companies. We sincerely hope that the fruits of the partnership will be delicious ones. Preferably huge melons.
