posted on 2009-07-05 19:27 EDT
The MangaGamer.com company has announced at the Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles this weekend that it has licensed the English-translation rights to Navel's Shuffle! adult romance visual novel for personal computers. MangaGamer.com plans to release the software as a download on its website this summer. It also plans to release other Navel titles, but has not announced which ones.
The game series inspired two television anime series, as well as several novel and manga volumes. Funimation licensed and released the first Shuffle! anime series in North America in 2008.
MangaGamer.com also confirmed its tentative plan to release the first four chapters of the Higurashi: When They Cry (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni) suspense horror visual novel franchise at the end of October, followed by the next four chapters about two months later. Like Shuffle!, Higurashi: When They Cry will be available as a download from MangaGamer.com's website.
