NekoNyan has announced a Kickstarter campaign for a limited physical release of AOKANA: Four Rhythms Across the Blue. The purpose of the campaign is to sell limited physical copies of the visual novel along with some merchandise. It will have a low initial goal and the release of the game is independent from the success of the Kickstarter campaign. The Kickstarter is set to launch next Tuesday (June 18) at 12:00 EDT. It will run for 42 days and end on July 30, 2019 with the digital release of the game to follow a month later.
NekoNyan also announced some updates on the other projects they’re working on. The updates are as follows:
- We fell a little bit behind schedule with Hello Lady, so the release has been pushed back to late Q3 2019.
- Senren Banka has had a bit of a slow start, but progress is moving along faster now. The game is currently scheduled for a September release and we’re confident we won’t have any trouble making it.
- Making Lovers is also making steady progress and we don’t expect any changes to the planned late early Q4 release window.
- We’re going to have some updates regarding the status of Melty Moment soon
The company also announced changes in the way they announce games going forward. Previously, they would announce games 8-12 months in advance of the game’s planned release. Lesser known IPs tend to get forgotten during the long wait between announcement and release, so NekoNyan will instead opt to only announce games when work on the title is around 50% complete. This means that fans will have to wait until around December for the next batch of announcements.
NekoNyan also revealed that they have one unannounced title that is scheduled for a December 2019 release. An announcement for that title will come in the next few months.
