Visual novel highlights week Oct 9 – Oct 15, another new Winged Cloud title and new Windmill titles announced

Last week there was plenty of new announcements in visual novel land that are worth sharing with you. At least, compared to some previous weeks. For example, on the English side there’s a newly announced Winged Cloud title waiting for you, while we have newly announced titles by Windmill and Windmill Oasis on the Japanese side.

Other companies with updates this week include Asa Project, feng, Lass Pixy, and a small teaser by localization company Moenovel. Enjoy!

As per usual, the news has been split between English Visual Novels, Japanese Visual Novels, and Nukige games specifically.

English visual novels

New Winged Cloud title Legends of Talia: Arcadia

Winged Cloud has opened the Steam page for a new kinetic novel called “Legends of Talia: Arcadia”. The story follows the story of a legendary knight called Arcadia, who has fought many battles throughout her life.

The game will also be made available in the Chinese language. Though a release date is unknown as of yet.

Steam page for Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa

Japanese developer Flat opened a Steam page for a translated version of their 2014 game Hikoukigumo no Mukougawa, titled “Beyond Clouds”. The Steam page is currently available in Chinese only but the page does mention that there will be English Subtitles available.

The publisher is SakuraGame, for whom this seems to be their biggest release as of yet. At this point in time it’s also unsure who is responsible for the translation and which by which quality standards it’ll be released in English (if at all).
