Good evening everyone!
It’s been a bit over a month since you last heard from us, and we have been busy.
First, we hope that all of you are staying safe and healthy during the ongoing COVID19 outbreak.
We’ve gotten a few questions about if this has impacted our work. In general, most of us who work for NekoNyan work remotely from home, so it hasn’t been that impactful- if anything some of us have been even more productive than usual!
So don’t worry, we’ll keep bringing you the games you want, to keep you busy during these tough times.
With that in mind, we are excited to announce that we will be releasing our next game, Making*Lovers on Friday, April 3rd, 2020 at 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT / 7 PM CEST!
It will be available on all of our usual partners, including Steam, Denpasoft, Mangagamer, Nutaku, Fakku, JAST, and of course our own website.
The price will be $29.99 plus a 10% launch discount, and there will, as always, be a free 18+ patch available for the Steam version on our website.
We are very excited to bring you this wonderful SMEE game featuring working adults, and first loves, and hope you enjoy it.
That isn’t the only news we have for you, we also have an update on the current status of Hello Lady, and here we have some good news and some bad.
As our last project updates showed, the translation and editing are at 100%- well, they were. Translation and editing on the main game and vita content are complete. However, late in the process we talked with Akatsuki Works and Hikari Field and came to the decision to go ahead and release the “Complete Version” of the game, or the “Superior Entelecheia” version.
This will also include the Fandisc content, as well as 5 additional H-scenes in the 18+ version for your reading pleasure. The extra content to be translated/edited amounts to roughly 250k-300k characters, which is a decent chunk. Steiner and DxS are getting to work on it immediately, and our current ~tentative~ release timeframe will be summer, but as always that is subject to change.
In an effort to help streamline the process, QA on the main part of the game will begin almost immediately, so by the time the Fandisc content is translated, we will be otherwise finished and ready to go.
We thank you for your patience and hope you will stick with us a bit longer while we work to bring the full Hello Lady experience to you in English.
Lastly just a quick update on Aokana news.
Production is still currently halted on the Kickstarter Merch, we haven’t yet received word on when the factories will reopen, but as always as soon as we hear something we’ll let you know.
The next 2 DramaCDs are currently in progress, with translation wrapping up tonight, and editing starting.
Translation on Extra1 has also commenced, so we hope you are ready for some more Mashiro adorableness.
That’s all we have for you tonight, we’ll make our regularly scheduled updates at the end of the month, in the meantime please as always reach out to us if you have any comments or questions, and stay healthy and safe out there.
