JAST USA Launches English Localisation Kickstarter Project for VenusBlood HOLLOW on Windows PC

American based localisation and publishing team JAST USA, along with Japanese development team Ninetail, have today launch a kickstarter campaign for the visual novel come strategic JRPG game VenusBlood HOLLOW.

The aim of this kickstarter, which has already achieved more than 50% of its target, is to achieve funding so that an English localised version of the game could be produced and then released worldwide.  If funding is successful then additional funds, if stretch goals are met, will see additional storyline and gameplay elements added to the overall experience. As per usual Kickstarter users can pledge different amounts to support the project, with different funds awarding different gifts.
