[Visual Novel Review] The Princess, the Stray Cat, and Matters of the Heart

Nora Cover

2019 has been a decent year for visual novels so far. With that statement short of any pertinent examples, I haven’t found many issues with any of the titles I have already finished and covering a wide field of genres and interest, happy to pick up a majority of them. Some more than others, of course. For English speaking audiences, developer Harukaze finally has one of its prolific entries make landfall: Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart or The Princess, the Stray Cat, and Matters of the Heart. Receiving some high praise and awards from the country of origin, this is one visual novel that does seem to live up to some of that acclaim.

Thus far, publisher NekoNyan has made great headway and contributions in getting more visual novels in the hands of English-speaking audiences. With such titles like Fureraba and Sanoba Witch serving those that like moege – titles focusing on romance and cute girls with none of the plot entrenched conflict, it has been one subsection I have been meaning to dig into. For lovers of the genre and like their comedy unchained, one NekoNyan’s latest ventures, Suki to Suki, Love Triangle Trouble aims to please. Honestly, if you are looking for laughs here, you have come to the right place. Anything else…it might be a tough sell.

[Video Game Review] Moero Chronicle Hyper

As the Nintendo Switch continues to expand its game library with ports and remastered versions of older games, Moero Chronicle is one I was not expecting, but seems obvious. With the dungeon crawling RPG from Compile Heart getting released on the PlayStation Vita as an Asian English deal and an official English release on PC via Steam, one more console never hurts. With everyone that was looking to play it already having done so, Moero Chronicle H or Moero Chronicle Hyper would have to be the most definitive edition for any hold outs that might be left rather than those that have already partook in this mischievous misadventure.
