Sekai Project and Frontwing have released the sequel to The Fruit of Grisaia, it’s called The Labyrinth of Grisaia. The adventure-laden visual novel is already getting a lot of chatter and feedback on Steam, including an ample supply of complaints about the lack of an 18+ version.
Frontwing’s visual novel originally released back in 2014 but it’s just now making its way Stateside. The game is $39.99 but it’s discounted by 20% off for the first week of being on Steam. It’s a tale of romance and intrigue, with players being put into the role of a young man who “meddles” in the lives of five women. You can check out the intro below to get absolutely no idea what the visual novel is actually about.
Quite naturally, just about anything being ported over to the West from Sekai Project likely has an uncensored, 18+ version floating around somewhere. In this case, the 18+ version for The Labyrinth of Grisaia is not yet available.
The lack of availability of the adult version of the visual novel left a sour taste in the mouths of some gamers, even causing them to second guess their rating for them, in addition to complaints that Sekai is charging too much for the visual novel. Some gamers believe that the price to length ratio isn’t quite on par to what it should be compared to the original The Fruit of Grisaia. Some claim that they managed to get 50 hours out of the first visual novel, and only 30 hours out of the second.
Even still, length and price were secondary in the discussion threads on the forum. One of the more hot button topics was the R-18+ version.
In one thread user Terror100[NL] informed one thirsty gamer that the 18+ version is still unavailable and is currently in the works by Denpasoft, stating…
“Sorry you (not yet atleast) The 18+ will be translated bij Denpasoft. The 18+ version still has not release date sorry”
If you check the Visual Novel Database website for The Labyrinth of Grisaia, you’ll find that the 17+ versions are all currently available, but the 18+ English version of the game is still to be announced.
If you’re good with your Kanji, you can grab the 18+ version of the Japanese rendition of The Labyrinth of Grisaia, which originally launched back in 2011 on PC before heading to the PS4 and PSV in 2014, but most gamers will probably want to know what the characters are saying while they fill their minds and eyes with H-scenes.
According to most users on the Steam forums, it will be many months before you can expect the uncensored R-18+ version of The Labyrinth of Grisaia to become available for those in the West, but if you don’t mind the more toned down (but still NSFW) version of the game, you can grab it from over on the Steam store.
