English-language Japanese video game publisher JAST USA announced on Friday that it has established a new JAST BLUE imprint to translate and release boys-love games in the Western market.
The imprint's first title is Nitro+CHiRAL's sweet pool adult visual novel. Nitro+CHiRAL originally released the game in Japan in 2008, and the company told JAST USA that it is "truly honored to see it localized in time for its 10th anniversary." Nitro+CHiRAL is releasing a remaster of the game in Japan for PC on May 25 in a package edition and on July 27 in a download edition. A PlayStation Vita version will launch in Japan on May 31.
JAST BLUE confirmed on Twitter that it is releasing the remastered version of the game for PC.
Viz Media's SuBLime imprint released Mayu Kurumazaki's two-volume Sweet Pool manga adaptation digitally in 2012.
Nitro+CHiRAL's Togainu no Chi and Dramatical Murder visual novels previously inspired television anime adaptations.
JAST USA previously released the Enzai - Falsely Accused and Absolute Obedience - Zettai Fukuju Meirei boys-love titles in English in 2006.
