The game localization company JAST USA has announced on Friday that it has licensed the rights to release English-translated versions of games from the Nitroplus studio. The first release from the new partnership will be Zanma Taisei Demonbane, the inspiration for the 2004 Demonbane video anime and the 2006 Demonbane television anime series. More information about this game and future releases will be available at the partnership's official English website. JAST USA's current catalog (2009-2010) mentions another Nitroplus title, Jingai Makyō, in addition to Demonbane as upcoming titles.
The Hirameki International Group once translated and sold visual novel software, including Phantom of Inferno from Nitroplus, in North America. However, Hirameki International announced that it would "bow out of publishing Interactive Visual Novels as of January 2, 2008."
