JAST USA quests for larger audience with Aselia

A few days ago, JAST USA released the all-ages (15+) version of XUSE’s Aselia the Eternal, including a DRM-free download version as well. This is the first time the company has released a game without adult content, and JAST USA have suggested that other all-ages titles may be licensed in the future if Aselia performs well commercially. Upon our asking, JAST USA stated that “it’s selling quite well so far.”
When asked what the game’s target audience is, the company said they “are going to do [their] best to market it anywhere [they] can”, and are hoping that retailers who normally refuse to stock adult games will pick up interest in this title. Interestingly, they also noted that they have submitted Aselia to online game marketplace Steam, although it is currently uncertain whether the game will be accepted.

Aselia the Eternal, known as Eien no Aselia in Japan, is an RPG set in a fantasy world known as Phantasmagoria, to which the protagonist Yuuto and his sister Kaori have been summoned. With his sister taken hostage by the local king, Yuuto finds himself forced to fight the king’s battles alongside a number of female Spirit warriors. An interesting detail is that when the game starts, neither the protagonist nor the player can understand the language of the Phantasmagorians. As the game progresses, the script becomes more and more understandable.

The game features event scenes in a visual novel-style format and gameplay in the form of RPG battles. The version being released by JAST USA is the Windows port of the all-ages PS2 adaptation, which featured added content and a revised game engine to compensate for the removal of explicit sex scenes. This English release is based on the fan translation released by Dakkodango Translations, who are continuing to offer their translation patch for the Japanese version of the game.

    Steam, Direct2Drive and even Amazon’s and Gamestop digital services can be used. No need to get stuck with a single service that might refuse to offer the title.

    If it is DRM-free then no point buying it on Steam

    I could imagine people preferring to have it all in one place, for instance. But the actual gain of something like Steam is that it allows them to reach a much broader audience. And that, by a longshot, is what the VN translation scene really needs most.

    Any word when Steam will proclaim their decision? Sure, if it’s approved we will know, but what if it gets declined? Then we may be sitting on our asses on the decision for ever.
