It appears that Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ will be localized for a steam release. The leak comes from a tweet put out by the game’s developer Light.

If you look at the images in the background, a Dies irae logo is found in the picture on the left. Fuwanovel forum user Kiriririri, zoomed in on this image and noticed it said Steam, pointing towards a possible Steam release.
A little while later, forum user sanahtlig offered this translation:
Using the release Dies Irae ~Amantes amentes~ as a base, the game’s text is being translated to English.
Steam will be used to bring Dies Irae to users around the world!
The latest version of light’s game engine will be used.
The game will support Windows Vista/7/8.1/10, and the resolution will be expanded from 800×600 to 1280×720 (HD)!
This title seems really interesting. Here is a description of it from VNDB:
As the Soviet Union marches on Berlin in May of 1945, a secretive group of sorcerers and madmen gathers to perform a terrible ritual. They care nothing for the fate of the Reich. To them, the countless lives lost in the battle are the perfect sacrifice to fuel their spell. After the war, they vanish and are not heard from again, except in rumor. One day, it is whispered, they will return. And on that day, the world will end. Fear the demons in human form. Fear the Longinus Dreizehn Orden.
Flash forward to present-day Japan. Fujii Ren is released from the hospital after two months spent recovering from wounds suffered in a vicious brawl with his best friend Shiro. As Christmas approaches, he tries to rebuild his life, clinging to what brilliance remains. But even that is soon threatened. For the knights of the LDO have returned, and brought the apocalypse to his doorstep. Forced to wield the same unholy power as his foes, will Ren be able to protect what is dear to him from the inhuman might of the Longinus Dreizehn Orden?
Since this is the ~Amantes amentes~ version of the game, the H scenes will be removed and blood toned down just a bit. We’ll keep you updated when official word is passed along.
