JAST USA has announced they are bringing a couple of titles at AX 2017. The first title is called  Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! from Minato Soft.

Here is a bit about Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai!  straight from the press release:

Experience the hugely popular visual novel that spawned a whole franchise, including a hit anime series!

Naoe Yamato, a second-year student at Kawakami Highschool, has grown up with his close-knit group of friends. They’ve been attached at the hip for as long as people can remember, and get up to all kinds of antics. Then, in the new semester, two more girls join their friendship group, and things get a little crazier…

A modern-day highschool comedy…where the girls are all descendants of samurai who still follow the bushido code to this day! Laughs and action abound as the guys do their best not to lose out to these tough warrior chicks.

This one will retail for somewhere between $30-40 and the release is TBA. You can check out VNDB for more info!
