Aokana: Four Rhythms Across the Blue was originally released by visual novel company sprite back in 2014. The game was a big hit and won countless awards. Many regarded it as one of the best releases of the year. It's fame and popularity even led to an anime adaptation for the game in 2016. Aokana still boasts many diehard fans of the franchise five years after its initial release.

 In 2018 we at NekoNyan teamed up with our Chinese partner HIKARI FIELD and secured the rights for a worldwide release of sprite's beloved game.

To commemorate that and show our appreciation to the countless fans of Aokana outside of Japan, we have decided to hold an exclusive Physical Kickstarter sale for the game. In addition to the physical game, we have also worked with sprite to gain permission to release a number of luxurious, high-quality Aokana goods. These will be included in the various backertiers.

Our release will be based on the console version of Aokana. Not to worry if you prefer the 18+ version, as our 18+ release will not only include the content in the original 18+ game, but also the exclusive scenes and CGs made for the game's console release. We have also ported this game to the Unity engine for the English and Chinese release, which means you'll be able to play this beautiful game in 2K base resolution.

Risks and challenges

The game is already almost fully translated and we are confident that we will be able to release the game digitally later this summer as planned. The purpose of this Kickstarter campaign is not to raise funds for the translation and release of the game itself, but rather to give fans of the franchise the opportunity to get their hands on the exclusive English physical edition as well as countless other fantastic merchandise.

As many are probably keenly aware, complications and delays, unfortunately, tend to be common when it comes to campaigns of this nature.
However, we are working closely together with our partner HIKARI FIELD, who have experience running numerous successful crowdfunding campaigns in China. They will be able to draw on that experience to help us ensure a smooth transition to
the fulfillment phase. Our current plan is to begin production shortly after the game's digital release. We hope to start shipping items to backers by Q4 2019.
Once the exact shipping schedule is finalized, we will of course share that with all backers.
