PLEASE NO ENGLISH DUB! If JAST does this and sells them for reasonable prices, they are officially my heroes. Hope to see more than just Demonbane though and hopefully they partner up with more than Nitroplus in the near future Smile

I do not think a dub is anything to worry about, no previous games from JAST have been dubbed.

The only H game voiced in English was Casual Romance Club if you wanted, but that was done by the Japanese VA's.

I am looking forward to the Nitro+ releases.

The Mangagamer news from AX might be of more interest to this Board. Seems they snagged Higurashi and Shuffle.

I just hope this means a possible future English release of Lamento and/or Togainu no Chi.

I am more excited about the fact that they announced that Family Project ~Kazoku Keikaku~ will be released by the end of this month. This is a game up there in quality with F/SN, Clannad, Tsukihime, etc... and is generally considered a masterpiece, and is likely to be one of the best games translated into English officially or otherwise.

Not just Shuffle and Higurashi but also Da Capo, Suika (cousin game of Da Capo), and Koihime Musou (?)

Suika and Da Capo were released a while ago, but during the panel they confirmed that they have plans to release Da Capo II.

I haunt the Peach Princess forums (where the Mangagamer releases are talked about a lot), so I knew about the others.
I held off on the previous Mangagamer releases, after many initial bad reviews of the translations, buying in Euros, and download only options.

Really great news on Family Project, I preordered it *checking old emails* 6/11/08 over a year ago! As long as they have worked on it, I expect near zero typos.

The recent Cosplay Fetish Academy, had a tad more typos than I would have liked to have read.

I was thinking the same. *crosses fingers*

The Da Capo and Suika translations are quite good, KiraKira does have some problems at time but nothing like their original releases, and I would say it is a better translation then something like Ever17.

I was thinking that as well, but those games are Nitro+chiral, not Nitro+, so I'm not sure if they're included in the deal.

Very cool. I wonder if they'll get Chaos Head. That was a great game. Still, nice to see the source game for all the Ignis figures I've seen get picked up. VNs with plots getting licensed, this is the best news from AX.

So, have they address that at AX?
I'd really like to have a disc copy if possible, like what Jast offers. I'll d/l them if that's the only way.

Hopefully this sell decently enough for them to be willing to bring over Nitro+ recent game Sumaga and it's fandisk game, really enjoyed that game. There's a translation going for Sumaga though the full fan translation isn't expected to come out till sometime later this year.

That's true, which is why I'm just hoping. IMO the Nitro+chiral games are really the only Nitro+ games that are worth it.
