Nitroplus, Jast USA and Kagura Games’ Saya no Uta: The Song of Saya is currently available right now over on the Steam store for $14.99. During the first week of being on sale the game is marked down by 20% off the normal price. However, even if you do get the Steam version it’s censored, meaning you won’t be able to experience the full game the way it was always meant to be experience. On the upside, though, Jast USA has you covered with an off-site R18+ patch.
You can download the R18+ patch for the Steam version of Saya no Uta from the Jast USA page.
Unfortunately, the page is premium and will require $3.99 to purchase it.
Alternatively, you can just download the full, uncensored version of Saya no Uta that doesn’t require a patch by getting the full version from the Jast USA store.
Saya no Uta on Jast USA is also only $15.99, so getting it from there is cheaper than getting it from the Steam store and then purchasing the R18+ DLC separately.
As a safeguard to get the game on Steam, Jast USA and Kagura Games had to release Saya no Uta censored.
This meant removing all of the sex scenes from the game, despite how key some of them were to the story.
However, Valve has a raging hard-on against loli characters, and Kagura Games and Jast USA likely knew that trying to get the sex scenes past Valve’s taste police – especially with Saya looking like a little loli – it would have been axed just like Kara no Shojo 2.
Anyway, the classic Saya no Uta: The Song of Saya is available on both Jast USA and Steam’s stores. Again, if you want the full uncensored experience with the new HD remastered images and updated resolution support, you’ll want to get the version from Jast USA since it’s cheaper compared to purchasing the censored Steam version and then paying an extra $3.99 to re-add the censored content back into the game.
