JAST USA Confirm Saya no Uta Reaches Golden Master, Set for Release in Early May


saya_front_pressEnglish-language visual novel publisher JAST USA have today confirmed that their release of Saya no Uta has finally reached golden master stage, and at the moment should be released sometime in early May 2013. Saya no Uta is a visual novel developed between Nitroplus (A studio known for other series including Steins;Gate and Deus Machina Demonbane) and Urobuchi Gen (Creator of Puella Magi Madoka Magica).

Saya no Uta tells the story of a young medical student who receives experimental brain surgery after a traumatic accident. He survives, but is left with warped senses that perceive the world as a hellish wasteland of pulsating flesh and twisted monsters. His salvation is a mysterious girl named Saya, the one entity he perceives as beautiful and pure. Their love has dramatic consequences — not only for them, but for the entire world.

Saya no Uta is set to be released DRM-free, uncensored and as with most JAST USA releases only recommended for those over the age of 18 years old. The title is available for pre-order through the JAST USA store as well as Jlist.

Japan has a highly developed visual novel culture full of interesting games, but some games really stand out. One of these is Saya no Uta, a perfect blend of romance and Lovecraftian horror with gorgeous art, haunting music, and stellar voice acting. We are very proud to bring Saya to our customers, and we hope fans will continue to show their support for this unique and outstanding game by picking up the official release!

It is great to see that Nitroplus titles are seeing releases in the international market, although I must admit I am still hoping they will release some of the 5pb collaboration titles down the track such as Steins;Gate and Chaos;Head.
