MangaGamer announced a new title available for pre-order, Tokyo Babel. The Adventure VN is rated for All Ages and the MSRP is $34.95, however they do have a limited time sale for the pre-order. It is also set to be released on Steam as well, March 31, 2016. Here is the press release in full.
March 4th, 2016—Tokyo Babel is now available for pre-order from MangaGamer!
When the apocalypse is nigh, Heaven and Hell collide!
Tokyo Babel begins its tale on the eve of the apocalypse: parallel worlds crumble in succession as the gates of Heaven are closed shut and Hell is irrevocably submerged in water. In a final, desperate attempt to set things right, the surviving angels and demons flock to the soaring purgatory of Tokyo Babel, intent on climbing Jacob’s Ladder to reopen the gates of Heaven and earn divine forgiveness. In the midst of this world-rending calamity, a young man called Tendou Setsuna travels to Tokyo Babel in order to lend his aid in the quest for Heaven – joining him are the angel Raziel, the demon Lilith, as well as the amnesia-stricken, yet relentlessly optimistic high schooler, Kugutsu Sorami. Theirs is a journey laden with love, hate, passion and betrayal – one that, at its conclusion, may very well alter the fate of the universe as we know it.
Tokyo Babel is a story born from the mind of Yuuichirou Higashide (Ayakashibito), one of the better known figures on the field of darker, action-oriented visual novels alongside talents such as Takashi Masada (Dies irae) and Kinoko Nasu (Fate/stay night). The game offers plenty of heated battles and a narrative deeply rooted in Christian mythology, all in a 50-hour-long beast of an adventure sure to please fans of the chuuni genre.

The gates of Heaven are closed shut; the realm of Hell consumed by flood.
And in their wake, countless parallel worlds wither away, one after the other.
The surviving angels and demons gather at the city they believe to be their final chance at salvation: the floating purgatory of “Tokyo Babel”.
Joined by humans, they embark on a pilgrimage across the seven layers of Babel, hoping to ascend Jacob’s Ladder in an effort to re-open the gates of Heaven.
Their journey would be an atonement toward the heavens.
And yet, their plans fall into ruin as a group of pilgrims ? their minds consumed by madness – set out to lord over the numerous layers of Tokyo Babel with the intention to wreak complete and utter havoc atop the floating purgatory.
Amidst this neverending impasse, a lone youth is saved from the ruins of his devastated world – Tendou Setsuna, a man denied human treatment since birth.
Joining his savior, Lilith – known as the Witch of the Night ?, he begins his journey across Tokyo Babel…
…yearning for an answer to a single question:
Why he still possesses the will to keep on living.

This looks like a quality title for them with significant horror and Semetic mythology elements. The look of it most reminds me of the Clamp classic X.
