G-Collections Announces Golden Master Status and December Release of Snow Sakura, New Adult PC Game

San Diego, California, Tuesday, November 20, 2007

JAST USA affiliate brand G-Collections, the leading publisher of Japanese PC dating sim games in English, today announced the golden master status and planned December release of Snow Sakura, the brand's latest adult bishoujo ("beautiful girl") dating simulation game.

Snow Sakura is the story of Yuuji, a young man sent to live with his uncle and cousin Saki in the snowy wilderness of Hokkaido, northern Japan. As Yuuji it is your quest to navigate through the quirks of small town life, quickly being taken in by Saki's group of madcap friends and energetically going about your new life in the beautiful winter countryside.

Surrounded by the tomboyish Saki, your demure classmate Misaki, her scheming best friend Kozue, your cool senpai Rei, and your bumbling teacher Misato, warm bonds of affection begin to grow between you of a sort you've never felt before. Running through them all is the story of the Snow Sakura, a legendary cherry tree that blooms in the heart of winter. What is the key to its mystery, and who will you choose to stand by your side beneath its flowering branches?

A timeless tale of humor, romance, and moments of tender eroticism, Snow Sakura is a unique multi-ending adult gaming experience from D.O., one of Japan's premiere bishoujo gaming companies, and G-Collections, their exclusive international licensor. G-Collections President Peter Payne said, "We're delighted to bring this game out just in time for the holiday season, and we think it's the perfect way to keep warm through the New Year. We think fans of Kanon will be especially interested in this title, as it's a great entry in the tradition of 'winter-themed' bishoujo games with deep, involved stories and complex, emotionally driven characters."


Ever since the first computers with color displays, Japan has had a strong culture of "love simulation" computer games, which simulate emotional and sexual interaction between the player and various game characters when the player "wins" the love of a given character. PC dating-sim games are often referred to "hentai" or "H" games by U.S. fans. JAST USA has been involved in licensing and translating Japanese dating-sim games since 1998, and is the leading producer and distributor of English-language PC games for adults in any form. The company has a catalog of over 50 English-translated games with every theme from maids to "cat girls" and more. Game titles are available to retail customers via http://www.jastusa.com or for wholesale customers at http://www.pcrdist.com/ .
