Last week, online store J-List first opened up pre-orders for the upcoming visual novel release of Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque. English-language publisher JAST USA have since confirmed further details on the VN and launched a pre-order campaign via their website.
Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque is available for pre-order via a special package edition and digital download edition. Coming in at $39.95, the packaged edition comes in a high-quality box with three “pencil board” style art cards illustrated by Oyari Ashito. The download edition on the other hand, will set you back just $34.95. The packaged edition also comes with a free digital download, meaning you are pretty much paying $5 for the extra goodies.
Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque was originally published by Japanese studio Littlewitch back in 2005, with a “Editio Perfecta” edition subsequently released in mid-2008. The English version will be based on the “Editio Perfecta” edition which contains four extra scenarios, including a harem route with twelve girls. The standard game also comes with seven heroines, a total of twenty endings plus hundreds of spells to learn and quests to complete.
Set in the magical world of Stella Mundo, Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque tells the story of Domino, the youngest wizard ever to earn the rank of Archmage. Domino has just begun his study of the ancient Dark Tower, a treasure trove of lost magical knowledge that he hopes to rediscover. But there’s a catch. As a condition for allowing him to study the tower, the corrupt Council of Archmagi has assigned Domino two troublesome students — Aria, the daughter of a noble family, and Kaya, an orphan with an unusual heritage — and given him just three years to complete their training – a process that normally takes decades.
As Domino, you must manage your pupils’ schedule, teach them essential spells, increase their magical power and send them on quests to test their progress. Your time is limited, so use it wisely. Do you have what it takes to lead Aria and Kaya to greatness? Their fate is in your hands.
