Japanator Live: Have fun in the sun with Danganronpa 2

[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here.] I'm still on Danganronppa 2's first chapter and the game placed me in a weird corner, as my reaction to the first person getting murdered threw me into a state of shock. Hell, I'...

Let's bring out the punch: Corpse Party is out on PC

It's time for us to have a scary celebration as the original PC version of Corpse Party has crept its way to Steam, GOG and the Humble Store on Monday. In this case, it might not be a good idea to drink the punch. Of course, this means...

Japanator Live: Let's put an end to Danganronpa's despair

[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here and here.] Right when I thought that Danganronpa's punishment scenes wouldn't have any affect on me anymore, the game pulled a ridiculous move that broke my mind and body into billions ...

Japanator Live: We're heading to Danganronpa space

[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here.] I may have been really sick during this past week, but I'm now well enough to get back into Danganronpa. Based on the theme of the game's chapter that I'm on, it looks like there's go...

 
 
Danganronpa 2 photo

Hello, Goodbye Despair: Danganronpa 2 gets a PC port

The Danganronpa games are fantastic. Stylish, tense, and utterly engrossing, they're easily among my favorite visual novels, and I recommend that everyone play them. Thankfully, that just got a lot easier, as people won't have to buy a Play...

 
 
 
Trails in the Sky photo

Rejoice: Trails in the Sky the 3rd crosses the pond

For a second, I wasn't sure if XSEED's tweet about a priest and a nun was important since they might've been in the mood to tell a great joke. Lo and behold, this statement had a higher purpose as the company announced that The Le...

Japanator Live: Learn how to overcome debts with Recettear

[Update: The stream is over, but you can watch it here.] If there's one thing that can cripple many video game heroes, it's having them miss out on paying a huge bill. The debt's damage is worse than any major boss' ultimate attack, as it c...

 
 
Naruto x Steam photo

Now you can get your Naruto anime fix on Steam

Rejoice, ninja fans, because Naruto has come to Steam! And no, I'm not referring to the bountiful slate of Ultimate Ninja Storm releases, but instead to a raftload of honest-to-goodness anime, courtesy of Viz Media. The ...

Clannad on Steam photo

Clannad gets its first official English release next week

If you told me even three or four years ago that visual novels would be one of the fastest-growing game genres in 2015, I'd have laughed in your face. But you'd have been right: Ever since it came out that people would be willing to pay for...

Love is eternal: Trails in the Sky SC launches next week

Well, folks: I'm happy to announce that we now live in a world where pigs have wings, and hell has frozen over. In other words, XSEED has revealed that The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC hits the PC and the PSN (compatible wit...

 
 
 
Mushihimesama photo

Shmup giant Cave heads to Steam with Mushihimesama

The bullet hell genre is one of the most niche genres in gaming. Simulation, Eroge, and point and click adventure games have proven to be popular enough to make it into mainstream web news in the past decade, but the shmup fans have largely...

Go nuts for doujin games with Steam's Summer Comiket Sale

If there's one thing otaku like more than otaku things, it's otaku things bought for cheap, which makes Steam's latest excuse to have a sale especially relevant. Y'see, Summer Comiket is happening right about now, and the otaku world's twic...

Watch out, BETA: Muv-Luv localization to get Kickstarted

It looks like visual novel fans are in for some good news. The gang at DegiGames and Ixtl have revealed that they're creating a Kickstarter to localize Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative. While the funding campaign will focus on the ...

 
 
VA-11 HALL-A photo

Drown away your sorrows with a new VA-11 HALL-A trailer

Back when Japanator Managing Editor Josh Tolentino wrote about VA-11 HALL-A, the bartending game that's set in a cyberpunk setting, my interest for the title was at a normal level. While I didn't get to play the project's prologue, the gam...

Huzzah! Tales of Zestiria heads to the PS4 and PC

I may be super fashionably late to the party, but it's not everyday that a Tales of title gets a special treatment like this. While it's been hinted that Tales of Zestiria was getting a Playstation 4 and PC release for a good while, t...

Tokyo School Life photo

Enrol as a Virtual Exchange Student in Tokyo School Life

Visual novels are nothing new in Japan but they're still incredibly niche in the west. I don't think we'll be seeing copies of Clannad or School Days on the shelves of Gamestop anytime soon, but they're gradually finding their way onto Valv...

PSA: Anime is the name of Steam's weekend game sale

Of all the geeky trends people took note of in 2014, one of the least appreciated is the Japanese gaming industry's growing embrace of indie development and global digital distribution. Sure, it's been happening for the last couple of years...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 photo

Final Fantasy XIII-2 time-warps to Steam soon

Ever since Final Fantasy XIII hit the PC way back in the halcyon days of last month, it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that the rest of Square Enix's grand, ill-fated trilogy would eventually make it over as well. And now the s...
