JAST USA has announced four new visual novel titles at Anime Expo 2016. LewdGamer takes a look what we can expect from the publisher in the near future.
At this year’s Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles, California, JAST USA announced four new title acquisitions at their panel, with three being from new developers and one from their current developer partners. The announcement included new partnerships with 10mile (tenmile), Tenco, and Poison Berry. Their title announcement from a current partnership is from CODEPINK, the developer behind the upcoming Nympho Sensei Ryoko.
Long-time fans of the yuri genre will be pleased to see that the immensely popular title Katahane will be coming to the West. Despite the game’s original developer Tarte going out of business years ago, the title appears to have been picked up by developer/publisher tenmile, who is releasing a new edition of the game in Japan titled Katahane – An’ Call Bell. The new edition features an additional story, and will be remastered in HD. This edition is the one that, according to their AX panel, will be the one that is localized. The Japanese release hits shelves August 26th, 2016.
In yet another surprise move, JAST USA also announced Tenco’s acclaimed Eiyuu Senki title. While the title has already seen an English release in the form of the all-ages PS3 edition via Fruitbat Factory last year, JAST will be releasing the adult PC edition of the game uncensored. In a nod to monster girl lovers, the publisher also announced Princess X -My Fiancee is A Monster Girl-. Their last announcement was Sweet Home from CODEPINK. For your reading pleasure, please look below for OPs, synopsis’, and sample CGs of the announce titles below.
The story takes place in a world with 3 kingdoms, the Red, White, and Blue Kingdom. In this world, they have highly-advanced dolls with some closely resembling humans. These dolls occasionally need maintenance which is done by a “tuner”.
A young playwright named Wakaba writes a controversial play about a traitor named Ein who killed a ruler of the White Kingdom, Christina. In Wakaba’s play, she presumes that Ein did not betray Christina, but was actually her loyal supporter.
When Wakaba’s friend Cero needs to make a trip to get Coco, a doll that lives with him, maintenance, Wakaba and her brother Light travel with him. Wakaba travels in the hopes of finding some actors for her play. Along the way, they meet a beautiful doll with one wing named Belle and an aspiring actress named Angelina.
The story takes place in 2 parts:
1) Shirohane – the main story with Wakaba and gang
2) Kurohane – the historical events talking about the end of the reign of Christina
