Degica have announced that they are bringing both Yumeutsutsu Re:Master and the Yumeutsutsu Re:After extended epilogue to Europe and North America on April 23rd. Both will feature an English language option.
Here’s trailers for both Yumeutsutsu Re:Master and Yumeutsutsu Re:After:
Next, here’s some details about Yumeutsutsu Re:Master:
Yumeutsutsu (roughly translating as a half-awake, half-asleep dreamlike state) Re:Master is a sweet and savory girls’ love adventure saga in which indie game development serves as the main catalyst for everything that occurs. Kogado’s previous yuri visual novel duology, Nurse Love Addiction and Nurse Love Syndrome, was centered on the professional lives of nurses and nursing students, and this saga continues that trend of taking a close look into the lives of professionals at work, this time focusing on everyday game developers in their natural element.
Eureka Software — a small game studio in Koenji, near the center of Tokyo — serves as the central setting for this tale. The protagonist, Ai, is a simple country girl who makes a rather big move to the city by herself to be closer to her younger sister, Kokoro, who diligently spends her days making games for Eureka. The sisters have been estranged for quite some time after their parents’ separation, so Ai is eager to reunite with her sibling and make up for lost time by joining her in her work.
Unfamiliar with the game development process, however, Ai’s life quickly descends into surreal and potentially deadly chaos, not unlike that of a character from one of the very titles she’s working on. (If you think you know what to expect from this game, then you don’t know Kogado visual novels!) She winds up surrounded by people much stranger than any NPCs you’d find in any ordinary game, and must make the most of these encounters to achieve a better life. Her biggest worry in all of this is the stand-offish attitude that Kokoro projects around her, despite the fact that Ai uprooted her life and moved to Tokyo alone just to be with her. On top of this, there seems to be some significance to “Nie Majo,” an old doujin (indie) game that Eureka Software is remaking with Ai and Kokoro’s help…
As for Yumeutsutsu Re:After, here’s the list of the stories it offers:
- Kokoro’s Story: “Yumeutsutsu Re:Unification”
- Saki’s Story: “Deadline Before Paradise”
- Nana’s Story: “Ghosts of the Past”
- Marie’s Story: “Married Life”
- Honoka’s Episode: “She, Her Dog, and Ai”
Next, here’s the various vocal themes for the two games:
- Main theme: “Place of promise” by Asaka
