    this starting up nicely

    no one license the LN/Anime in the US yet? if so then I can hope NISA would bring this,.

    • Not a chance.

    • Flandre Scarlet

      The anime? Maybe. The LN or game? No chance. NISA wouldn’t even touch one of NIS’s anniversary games because it was a VN. According to one of their staff, they don’t consider VN’s to be a game.

        I am doubting this is a V/N though. Why assume it is? I mean, why would CH use Sting if it was a V/N when CH already does V/Ns just fine?

      • kroufonz

        it looks like this would be a VN that more SLG (ADV+ someform of gameplay mostly a RPG/SRPG) then pure ADV

  • DesmaX

    Hm… If this is only a Visual Novel, it should be fine

  • Just to be sure, please don’t be a VN. I love VN’s as everyone else, but this could be so much more than that!

  • Himiko

    It will probably be told in VN Style but with gameplay.

  • That teaser image is like malegaze.jpg. It’s maddening.

  • 猫 黒

    Sounds like either the best thing or the worst thing in the world: compile heart with fanservice and moe girls and sting with deep thoughtful plots and unique gameplay. Aaaand, I don’t have a PS3. *cries*

  • two of my favorite developers collaborating.. fat chance this will ever get localized -_- meh, guess i’ll hone my japanese skills meanwhile.
