Limited Run Games is now dipping its toes in releasing localized visual novels, and the first one to join the LRG family is “The House in Fata Morgana”, which was released in Japan in 2012. Here’s a description of the game:
The House in Fata Morgana[a] is a visual novel video game developed by Novectacle. It was released for Microsoft Windows and iOS by Novectacle in 2012 and 2014 in Japan, and for Microsoft Windows by MangaGamer in 2016 internationally. Additionally, a Nintendo 3DS version was released by FuRyu in 2016, and a PlayStation Vita version was released by Dramatic Create in 2017, both exclusive to Japan. Another PlayStation Vita version, as well as a PlayStation 4 version, are planned for an international release by Limited Run Games in 2019.
The House in Fata Morgana is a visual novel set in a mansion, where the player character wakes up with amnesia. They meet a Maid in the mansion, and the two visit the mansion in different time periods – 1603, 1707, 1869 and 1099 – to learn what has happened to its residents in the past, and to try to get the player character to regain their lost memories. – From Wikipedia.
The standard edition will set you back $50, but it includes the prequel, the sequel and some other contents. 3-in-1? We’ll let you decide.
Another visual novel announced is “London Detective Mysteria”, also a visual novel (of the Otome variety). Here’s more on that:
London Detective Mysteria[a] is a 2013 otome visual novel video game for the PlayStation Portable created by Karin Entertainment and published by Marvelous in Japan. In 2016, Karin Entertainment self-published a PlayStation Vita port known as English Detective Mysteria: The Crown (英国探偵ミステリア: The Crown Eikoku Tantei Mysteria: The Crown). This version includes extra scenarios, a slightly different voice cast and a new artist.
The pricing for this is still unknown.
Both games will release within a LRG event called “Visual Novel Friday”.
