Pulltop has also published a new teaser this weekend. On this teaser page for their 14th game we unfortunately do not get a lot of information to work with. We can see the silhouettes of 3 assumed heroines surrounded by musical notes. Something that might hint to the direction of the story. The teaser line is fairly non-descriptive as well, so we’ll have to wait until they publish some more actual information on the story and heroines.
What we do know is that character design (and most likely art) will be handled by Ayumu Motoi, Beko Tarou, and Marui. Ayumu Motoi has worked on several Pulltop titles before, while Marui previously worked on several titles by sister brand Pulltop Latte and Beko Tarou joined in for Miagete Goran, Yozora no Hoshi o. Meaning that the art will be mostly handled by familiar names from previous Pulltop titles.
The story planning is done by veteran and Pulltop regular Eiji Takashima, who’s joined by other writers Natake, Asta Konno, and Fudoh Takeru. All of them veteran Pulltop writers except for Fudoh Takeru, who’s name is unfamiliar to me. Direction is (unsprinsingly) in the hands of Yow.
A short introduction for those unfamiliar with Pulltop. This Japanese visual novel developer has been around since the early zeros. They started to get noticed in the west with the release of “Kono Oozora ni, Tsubasa o Hirogete“, a visual novel about a glider club. This was later also released in English with the help of moenovel.
After Konosora they released several more popular titles like “Cocoro＠Function!” and 2015’s “Miagete Goran, Yozora no Hoshi o”. During this time they also spawned the brands Pulltop Latte and Pulltop Air. Aimed at a slightly different audience, Pulltop Latte’s titles became instantly popular, but there’s yet to be another title announced under Pulltop Air’s name.
