Retailer Robert's Anime Corner Store reports that they've been told by JAST that NitroPlus Adult game title Saya No Uta (The Song of Saya) has begun shipping. Plans for a localized Saya were announced back in 2011. The visual novel is notable for offering fortified dose Madoka Magica and Fate/zero, writer Gen Urobuchi. More after the jump.
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. See how the 10th anniversary is being marked after the jump.
With a fully packed house at the JAST USA panel at Anime Expo 2011, JAST talked about their upcoming lineup of games including the adult visual novel Saya no Uta from the script writer for Madoka Magica, the progress on School Days HQ, a possible release for the Starry Sky otome game series, and more.
