Visual Novel News:
Shiravune have made quite a few announcements this week. Starting with the biggest and perhaps most anticipated one:
After previously being announced, NUKITASHI 2’s release date is now known. It will be coming to Steam and Johren in Q1 2024. You can find the opening video here and our review of the first title in this series here.
The story continues from the previous installment: peace has settled over Seiran Island with the achievement of true coexistence—or so Junnosuke and his friends believe until a sudden and significant data-related incident thrusts them into a parallel world, an alternate “utopia” where Junnosuke holds absolute power. As the gang arm themselves for the impending battle once more, will they be able to return safely to their world in one piece?
After an initial delay and then being brought forward, Succubus Sessions: Mami Mamiya’s Sweet Slice of Hell has been released on Steam and Johren.
After years of isolation, a friendly son of Adam is just what Mami’s village needs to reacquaint itself with the outside world! Demon contact, however, can prove lethal to your average joe… Not Koichi, though. This guy’s built different.
Cabbage Soft’s Amazing Grace -What color is your attribute?- has been delayed from an 8th December, 2023 release to an unspecified date in Q2 2024. Shiravune has stated that an updated release date for this time-looping visual novel will be announced when confirmed.
“A holy night with no dawn, my dear…” Shuu awakens, memoryless, in a town blanketed in snow that feels truly bizarre to him. In this town filled with Europeanized architecture enveloped and closed off by a humongous wall called the aurora, there is nothing more treasured than the arts. It is here in this mysterious town that Shuu is saved by its residents and allowed to live a fulfilling life with the students of St. Aria Academy. However, this blissful life is eventually taken away from him in the blink of an eye. On December 25th, an unexplained conflagration brings the town to almost complete destruction. Loving this town more than anyone, Yune decides to take destiny into her own hands and rewinds time back to December 2nd—the first day of Advent.

Idea Factory have released My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! -Pirates of the Disturbance- both digitally and physically on Nintendo Switch.
Catarina Claes is a young woman born into a family of nobility who has a memory of her past life as a high school student. She was reincarnated as a Villainess in an otome game called Fortune Lover. Exile or death were all that awaited her in this new world. However, she managed to evade these ends, and somehow made it through the year to spring break. As fate would have it, both Catarina and her adopted brother, Keith, were to board a state-of-the-art luxury liner called the Vinculum on its maiden voyage during their time away from the Academy. Once aboard the ship, she realized her friends were also in attendance on what was meant to be a luxurious journey at sea. The tides changed quickly when they were attacked by pirates who took over the Vinculum and held all of its passengers hostage. This turn of events all seemed familiar to Catarina, and she begins to recall this was the storyline to a Fortune Lover fanbook. Could this mean she’s living in a resurrection of a canned doom ending?! Will Catarina and her friends be able to return to Sorcier safely? The curtain rises for a new twist in this doom-flag-evading romantic comedy!
