Well, now that we’ve finished summing up 2014, it’s time to talk about projections for this year, isn’t it? We have a lot of awesome things bubbling in the works, so read on!
This past year we’ve churned out consistently high quality releases every month, and we don’t plan on hitting the brakes any time soon. We’re starting 2015 off big with our upcoming release of eden* and eden* PLUS MOSAIC. Yet, what really makes this release so special is the minori fundraising campaign. For the first time ever, Western fans have a chance to make the impossible possible and help fund the development of Supipara, an all-ages Visual Novel, for an English-first release! Everyone here at MangaGamer and minori are really excited about this prospect and the potential it holds to change the Visual Novel industry as whole. Some of the hurdles may be high, but we hope every one of our fans will help spread the word and make this campaign a success. The release is drawing very near, so tell everyone you know, and let’s all help make the impossible a reality!
Ready for release after that is another title that’s the first of its kind in many years–No Thank You!!! As our very first foray into BL, we’re very excited to see all the support we’ve received for this game, particularly from our female fans. It’s coming very soon! We promise!
We’ve also got Princess Evangile ready for release soon, but we have an important announcement regarding this one as well–after getting approval from Moonstone, we will be making Princess Evangile All-Ages available on Steam as well! We’re all quite excited to be bringing another full-length Visual Novel to Steam, and we hope everyone will enjoy it too. It’s going to be the longest Visual Novel to ever hit Steam when it launches this Spring! (The adult version will be available for $44.95, and the all-ages version available for $34.95. As usual, buying either version on our website will earn you a Steam Key as well.)
So what else is in store? Well, we’ve been making a lot of steady progress on all of our currently announced titles, and work on Kara no Shojo 2 and euphoria is progressing quickly. With luck, we should be able to have both of these titles out this summer. We also have a fairly steady line of hard copies planned and slated for printing, so keep an eye on our feeds as we send out more information throughout the year.
As far as upcoming titles go? Well, this year holds potential for quite a few surprises. Our localization team is currently plugging away at all of our announced acquisitions so those will be filling our 2015 release schedule up pretty tight, but there are a few things currently underway behind the scenes. We’ve heard rumors that bamboo might be planning something, and talks with a certain particular company are already underway, and we’re making several approaches of our own at a few new and interesting targets, but it’s too early to say much yet. This summer could bring some exciting news, though! We also plan on adding a few more titles to our catalog from our existing partners, but it wouldn’t be any fun if we spoiled which ones now, would it?
