Well that's good. Too bad I can't read Japanese at all, otherwise I might get it.
On a related note, we DO need more visual novels in english.

Nobody wants to pay 60$ for a Choose your Own Adventure book with anime drawings.

Alternatively, Sony usually doesn't allow them (Emphasis in "usually", as Aksys is actually publishing a VN for the PSP here in the U.S.). Perhaps the same applies to other platform holders, excluding Nintendo to some degree; at least with the DS.

And, I'd imagine the lengthy process of translation proves to be another obstacle.

If sony is blocking this sort of entertainment in the U.S but they don't have a single problem with releasing it in other territories then they need to get their priorites straight because contrary to popular belief their is an audience here. I've personally never bought one of these games before but i would like the option at least
