Demo Version Now Available for Visual Novel Developer Frontwing’s Latest Work, “Corona Blossom”
Tokyo, Japan – July 21, 2016 The demo version of Frontwing’s upcoming visual novel “Corona Blossom Vol.1 Gift From the Galaxy” is now available from the game’s Steam store page, which can be accessed at the following URL: http://store.steampowered.com/app/496260
“Corona Blossom” is a comedic visual novel series set to be released in three parts, with the first volume “Gift From the Galaxy” releasing on Steam this month following a very successful Indiegogo campaign which raised over 150% of its goal. “Gift From the Galaxy” will retail for $10 USD, with a small discount for the first week, and an 18+ patch will be available separately, also for $10 USD.
The game’s development staff include character artist nanaca mai, the illustrator for the SD art for the Grisaia series, and Yuhi Nanao, a scenario writer who worked on “Hatsuru Koto Naki Mirai Yori” (Hatsumira, or From the Future Undying).
The game has been localized in English by Frontwing’s brand new in-house translation team, the members of which are experienced Japanese to English translators who possess JLPT N1 certification or equivalent. It also features a brand-new system allowing simultaneous display of English and Japanese text during gameplay, as well as language switching at the press of a button.
The demo version of “Gift From the Galaxy” covers the first three chapters of the game, and will introduce players to Corona Blossom’s main characters, ending on a tantalizing lead-in to the events of the full game.
“Corona Blossom Vol.1 Gift From the Galaxy” releases on Steam in late July, with a physical release in Japan to follow.
Frontwing is a developer of Japanese visual novels. Since the company’s founding in 1999 as a bishojo games developer and the release of Frontwing’s first title, “Canary’ (Canaria: Kono Omoi o Uta ni Nosete) in August 2000, we have published a number of titles in the visual novel genre. From school life love stories to hardcore adult games, as well as titles which utilize 3D computer graphics, our creations cover a diverse range of genres. Our products, as well as the characters they feature, have come to represent the world of bishojo games. Frontwing marked its first venture into the overseas market May 29, 2015, with the English release of ‘The Fruit of Grisaia’ on Steam. We have also self-published two ‘Grisaia’ series side stories, ‘The Leisure of Grisaia’ and ‘The Afterglow of Grisaia’, with further localized titles in the works.
Frontwing is also currently part of a joint crowdfunding project with AKABEi SOFT2 to localize their visual novel “Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shojo” (“Wheel Country, Sunflower Girl).
