Visual Novel News:
MangaGamer have released Playing with my Brother’s Wife by UMe SOFT on their store. This is an uncensored NTR visual novel, where the protagonist finds the woman he has secretly been in love with his brother’s fiancée.
Another release by MangaGamer this past week is UuultraC, a boy’s love story with supernatural themes. It has kaiju, superheroes and giant robots. This visual novel is a tokusatsu drama.
JAST USA has released the The VenusBlood Frontier Fandiscs. These three fandiscs act as after story for the original game, which we reviewed back in 2020.
While there has been no official announcement, it was mentioned by staff in NekoNyan Discord that Clover Day’s has been banned on Steam.
A staff member said “We can’t resubmit” and “We’ll still be releasing it of course”. This was followed by their recent AMA confirming it would come to other platforms. Another staff member did say “it has a small chance of still being accepted but it’s fair to assume it won’t”.
Clover Days was chosen as one of the top titles to look forward to in 2022. You can see our top choices for 2021 and upcoming titles in 2022 here.
An announcement briefly appeared for Historical Otome Birushana: Rising Flower of Genpei, stating that it would be launching on June 28th in North America and July 1st in Europe.
Idea Factory seem to have removed the announcement. It’s possible that it was meant to be announced during the upcoming New Game+ Expo on March 31st 2022.
NekoNyan has launched Café Stella and the Reaper’s Butterflies, a Yuzusoft visual novel with supernatural themes. It follows Kousei as he narrowly avoids death and needs to help a grim reaper and talking cat with their work by opening a café. Our review is coming soon.
