Release Date Set For Ryukishi07’s Iwaihime Visual Novel


It was announced earlier this week, that Ryukishi07’s new solo project Iwahime will launch in Japan on November 27th. The visual novel — which Ryukishi07 first teased at Anime Central in May — will be available in both physical and downloadable forms through publisher DMM Games. The title was previously stated to be released only via digital download when it was first announced at the end of June.

A horror novel, Iwaihime tells the story of a young boy who transfers to a new school only to meet a mysterious young girl with features like those of a traditional Japanese doll. Iwahime will feature the character art of Kina Kazuharu, and will be written in its entirety by Ryukishi07 himself, who worked on the project without his usual development team from 07th Expansion. According to the author, he has been working on this particular project for over two years.

In the past, most of Ryukishi07’s visual novels have been translated into English by the fan group Witch Hunt and released physically and via Steam by MangaGamer.  Only time will tell if Iwaihime will make the follow the same path.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
