Video game localization and publishing company MangaGamer and minori producer and director Nobukazu Sakai (also known as nbkz) revealed minori's new game project titled Trinoline ~LL Move~ during Sakai's panel at Anime Expo on Monday. Sakai said during the panel that he wants to release the game worldwide, and MangaGamer said Sakai "plans to ask those of us at MangaGamer to handle the localization while the game is still in development," with the goal to make the time gap between the Japanese and English release as small as possible.
minori will officially announce the game in Japan on July 20. Sakai stated that minori is aiming for a release window of early 2017. John Pickett, head translator and PR director at MangaGamer, said to ANN that the game is "most likely going to be similar to eden* which was released by us on Steam already."
MangaGamer is streaming a video of the panel where Sakai made the announcement.
minori developed such visual novels as Wind: A Breath of Heart, Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two., eden*, and Haru no Ashioto. MangaGamer released eden* in North America on PC via Steam in January 2015, and has also released ef - the first tale. and ef - the latter tale. The company plans to release the first chapter of minori's Supipara - Alice the magical conductor game on July 29.
Sakai served as producer and quality checker for all visual novels produced by minori (Ef: A Fairy Tale of the Two., eden*). He has also directed several minori titles.
