Back in mid-December 2020, visual novel localiser and publisher Jast BLUE announced they would be bringing Nitro+Chiral’s 2012 title DRAMAtical Murder to audiences outside of Japan in English. The series received a 2014 anime adaptation, which itself was brought to international audiences by CrunchyRoll and Sentai.
With DRAMAtical Murder due to release sometime later this month, you can enjoy a small sample of what you can expect from the boy love visual novel from today. An all-ages demo can now be downloaded via Steam. The 18+ version, featuring erotic content, has not received a demo release at this time.
Pre-orders for an 18+ physical edition are now being accepted via the J-List online store. In addition to a disc copy of the game, you will also receive an original soundtrack CD, Digital Artbook, two randomly selected limited edition character badges (only with pre-orders) and a Steam key. An uncensored standard edition version will also be available via the JAST USA website. The visual novel, as mentioned before, will also be available via Steam. The steam version will be altered to remove erotic content, although a patch to restore cut content will be offered through the JAST USA website.

The Story of DRAMAtical Murder
The beautiful island of Midorijima was once a place where people lived in harmony with nature, until the Toue Corporation took over and forced the island’s residents into the shadow of Platinum Jail, a walled-off megaresort where the wealthy wallow in luxury.
Aoba is a young man living with his grandmother, working part-time in a junk shop while his peers join gangs or immerse themselves in virtual reality. All Aoba wants is a peaceful life, but strange things are happening in Midorijima, and soon he will have to fight… or lose everything that he holds dear.
