Sorry for no reviews recently. I have been working through Monster Girl Quest Chapter 2, and playing it enough in one day to finish the game in a reasonable time is self-flagellation to the point where I would be committed.
However, I do have good news to announce:
JAST USA Press Release: Saya no Uta Goes Golden Master
JAST USA, the leading publisher of adult Japanese PC games in English, has announced the Golden Master status of Saya no Uta – The Song of Saya, the highly-anticipated visual novel by developer Nitroplus and Madoka Magica creator Urobuchi Gen. The master has been sent for printing and the game is expected to ship by early May.
Saya no Uta tells the story of a young medical student who receives experimental brain surgery after a traumatic accident. He survives, but is left with warped senses that perceive the world as a hellish wasteland of pulsating flesh and twisted monsters. His salvation is a mysterious girl named Saya, the one entity he perceives as beautiful and pure. Their love has dramatic consequences — not only for them, but for the entire world.
Saya no Uta is the fourth visual novel by acclaimed writer Urobuchi Gen, whose most recent works include the popular anime Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero. It remains one of his most famous works due to its powerful themes and strong storytelling.
JAST USA president Peter Payne said, “Japan has a highly developed visual novel culture full of interesting games, but some games really stand out. One of these is Saya no Uta, a perfect blend of romance and Lovecraftian horror with gorgeous art, haunting music, and stellar voice acting. We are very proud to bring Saya to our customers, and we hope fans will continue to show their support for this unique and outstanding game by picking up the official release!”
Saya no Uta is DRM-free, uncensored, and suitable for mature adults 18 years of age or older. It is available for preorder now on the JAST USA store (http://www.jastusa.com/shop/song-of-saya.html), as well as at JList.com. More information can be found at the JAST USA developer blog, http://www.jastusa.com/.
I wish I had seen this before I put in for the pre-order, this release means the game is coming soon, and I would have waited to pre-order if I had known how long I would have been waiting.
