Gen Urobuchi's "Saya no Uta" Packaged In Grotesque New Bonus Item

10th anniversary Blu-ray to be released in Japan February 28th

Before Madoka Magica and Fate/zero, writer Gen Urobuchi made his name on Nitroplus visual novels. One of these was 2003's Lovecraftian horror eroge Saya no Uta, about a medical student who receives brain surgery after a near-fatal auto accident, causing him to see the world as pulsating flesh and entrails, except for one beautiful girl in a white dress.

 

A new Blu-ray release of the adventure game hits Japan on February 28th. It features new cover art, a visual book with commentary from Urobutcher himself, and, perhaps best of all, it's wrapped in a bandana with "grotesque lump of flesh"  design, suitable for reuse adorning yourself, or carrying a particularly unappetizing picnic meal. 

 

JAST announced plans to release the 18+ game in North America. IDW released an English comic adaptation in 2011.
