Here’s some unexpected news for the visual novel community. Today it was announced that veterans of the English visual novel localization scene – MangaGamer and JAST USA – have entered into a distribution partnership with Nutaku.
What exactly is Nutaku? For those who’ve never heard of it before, it’s effectively a digital storefront for web-based 18+ erotic games. This will change slightly once they begin selling JAST and MangaGamer titles which only come in downloadable format.
Titles such as Cho Dengeki Stryker and Vanguard Princess will soon arrive on Nutaku with heavy launch discounts. Perhaps we’ll soon see other companies jump into the fray (Sekai Project, anyone?).
