Frontwing launched a Prefundia page for their visual novel Grisaia: Phantom Trigger, coming to PC on April 28 in North America, Europe, and Japan.
With the first two volumes releasing on the aforementioned date, the developer would like to offer western fans a chance to pick up some extra merchandise along with the two visual novels. The Prefundia page gives a chance to fans to preview available tiers when the campaign officially launches.
Also, the game was developed for all-ages and an 18+ version is not in discussion at this time.
The developer details the premise:
Following the Heath Oslo incident, the existence of the US-Japanese anti-terror organization CIRS has become a matter of public knowledge. CIRS has been rebuilt from the ground up, and its most covert functions spun off to a new agency: SORD (Social Ops, Research & Development).
The goal of SORD is to train a new generation of operatives to defend the country against future threats. To that end, the organization has established a series of schools up and down the country. Mihama Academy, more-or-less left to rot after its abrupt closure, has been given new purpose as one such ‘specialist training school’.
This new incarnation of Mihama Academy is home to a diverse group of students, who every day work to polish their unusual skills – sometimes on the job. Mihama now entrusts the misfit girls who attend it with guns and live ammunition. Paying their own safety no heed, these students are again and again plunged into dangerous extrajudicial missions – all for the good of the realm.
Additionally, the developer provided a FAQ to address many inquiries made by fans. One being, “Will one of the stretch goals be a PS Vita port of Phantom Trigger?” in which the developer explained Phantom Trigger is going to be a series of visual novels. So, even though at this time they are not looking to release Vol 1 and Vol 2 on Vita, that doesn’t mean they wont release the series as a whole once it nears completion. Currently, there are 4 volumes in development, but the exact number of entries have yet to be decided.
