G-senjou no Maou – The Devil on G-String
First up is G-senjou no Maou – The Devil on G-String by AKABEi Soft2. This visual novel casts you in the role of Azai Kyousuke, who is the son of a very infamous gangster. Between listening to Bach, playing God at school and doing some part time work for his stepfather, Azai has quite an idyllic existence. This all changes when a Usami Haru, a beautiful girl, and the international criminal, “Maou”, appears on the scene. These two begin a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, which draws Azai and his friends into the crossfire. The visual novel is set for release on Steam this summer and more will be revealed at the upcoming Otakon.
Sunrider: Liberation Day
The next chapter in the Sunrider series by Love in Space was also announced. Set to chronicle the liberation of Cera, the game invites players to join Captain Kayto Shields and his crew when they return to where it all began. The release date is still to be announced, but check out the official website for more information. This visual novel will also feature the OP “Sora no Kodoh” with vocals by Rita, who is known for her work on titles such as Little Busters and Yosuga no Sora.
Sekai Project is also adding Chrono Clock, by Purple Software, to their already impressive line-up. The protagonist of this visual novel is Sawatari Rei, the heir to a multimillion corporation in Japan. He also possesses a mysterious pocket watch with time travelling capabilities. Since the watch is only able to travel back five minutes in time, Rei initially only uses it to make his life more fun. However, this all changes when he witnesses a girl fall to her death.
WORLD END ECONOMiCA episode.02
The first episode enjoyed a very positive reception on Steam and fans can now look forward to World END ECONOMiCA episode. 02 which is set for a release this July. This visual novel is by Isuna Hasekura, the creator of Spice and Wolf, and is the second in the three part series. The story continues the events set in motion during the first episode, so we are not going to mention any details that might spoil things for players who have yet to experience episode 01. Suffice to say it looks like it is going to be another gripping tale.
Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition-
The suspenseful and lengthy Root Double – Before Crime is also making a welcome English debut thanks to Sekai Project. The protagonist is Watase Kasasagi, a rescue squad captain, who wakes up in the middle of a critical mission, but without his memories! A nuclear meltdown is taking place at a research facility, but without his years of training to fall back on he must somehow rescue the survivors and escape his unfamiliar surroundings. There is a lot more to the story as well, including a seemingly ordinary student whose mind might just hold the key to the mystery behind the incident. More information will be arriving soon, so follow Sekai Project on Twitter to stay up to date.
Last, but definitely not the least, comes the news that the Narcissu remake project has been greenlit. Sekai Project promised more information in the near future, but we know that they are working with the original creator of the series. The game will not only include content from the first and second titles in the series (already available for free on Steam), but also the third and much more. Check out the announcement trailer below to find out more.
Sekai Project is definitely becoming a force to be reckoned with on the English visual novel scene and these announcements further cement their reputation. There is a lot here for fans of the genre to be very excited about and we look forward to checking out all these titles.
