Anime Expo 2011: JAST USA Panel

Nitro Plus
Featured Nitro+ Games

Oh man, where to start with this panel… it took place right after the Hatsune Miku concert and after having a bad experience the previous day with getting into the FAKKU panel, we wanted to make sure we landed a good spot in line. Once we got through the doors we managed to get one of the first looks at some of the shwag that they were handing out. The previous panels they gave out collectable cards with characters from their featured games — this year we were gifted Nitro+ art books, and they are simply beautiful. We scrambled to our seats once inside and the panel got started. We were reintroduced to this years new releases; Deus Machina: Demonbane and Yukkuri Panic: Escalation. In addition to the titles that are already currently available JAST announced a rather large library of up and coming titles as well. Some of these rather unique and new to the scene states side. JAST has also stated that they are working on transforming their current naming scheme and reclassifying based on their content.

Those classes are as follows:
Jast伝説(Densetsu), will be their ‘legendary’ status brand holding titles were either really popular or have a story that doesn’t mostly revolve around 18+ content. (Although it may contain it) [Demonbane and a few others]
Peach Princess will be the ‘hardcore’ category containing more of their ecchi-goodness titles. [Bible Black, Moero Downhill Night, Yukkuri Panic]
G-Collections is looking to be retired.

In addition to all of this, several new titles are also said to be coming to us and amazingly a lot of the current projects have a fan translation project behind it… as in JAST is currently working with some of the projects already out there to bring them to us.

Lastly it is said that there are plans on licensing Otome/Bishounen game, Starry Sky (Wiki). Which is a completely different angle to what their current lineup.
