MangaGamer.com is the world’s first online download site of English translated bishojo games that opened in July 2008. Since its launch, it has offered services where fans can download and enjoy popular bishojo games such as CIRCUS’s “Da Capo” and OVERDRIVE’s “Kira Kira” right from their home.
In a move remarkably similar to recurring practice in fan translations, MangaGamer has released an all ages version of KIRAKIRA, their flagship title created by OVERDRIVE. In contrast to more common all-age ports and remakes, the censored version of KIRAKIRA appears to be created similarly to most all-age or non-ero versions existing in fan translations: with only minor text changes and removal of erotic scenes.
As if following in line with growing popularity of eBooks on the iPhone, an English version of MOONSTONE’s Gift is now available for $9.99 on the App Store. Furthermore, according to the iPhone port’s developer’s site, Japanese and English versions of OVERDRIVE’s KIRAKIRA will also be available separately on the iPhone starting November 20. Of course, being on iPhone means that most of the sexual content will be removed.
Thanks to izmos for the heads-up.
UPDATE: KIRAKIRA is now available in English for $9.99. There are also trial versions of KIRAKIRA and Gift in English available on the iPhone App Store as free downloads. The Japanese version of KIRAKIRA on the App Store is apparently $15.99.
EvoSpace, in charge of the MangaGamer forums, has added a section in the forums for users to report (script) errors found in MangaGamer’s games. MangaGamer is “planning to release patches in the future” but there’s no guarantee all the bugs will be fixed and the release schedule is totally up in the air.
