Grisaia: Phantom Trigger Has Gone Gold, World Wide Release in April

March 28, 2017

Frontwing announced that the continuation of their their Grisaia visual novel series, Grisaia: Phantom Trigger, has gone gold.

This means the game has exited development and is ready for distribution with the worldwide release date for Vol 1 and 2 to be April 28, Vol 3 scheduled for Summer 2017. Both games will be available on Steam for $14.99 each.

Additionally, the developer launched a video to celebrate the achievement by using Japanese calligraphy to spell out “Phantom Trigger Master Up”, “Master Up” being equivalent to “Gone Gold”.

Currently, there is a KickStarter page up for western fans who would like to receive physical goods along with the game’s release. The crowdfunding page has already passed its goal, but with eight days left, there’s still time to check out the campaign.


The developer details the game’s 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.
