BL Visual Novel ‘UUUltraC’ Comes to the West by Publisher MangaGamer
During AnimeNYC, publisher MangaGamer announced a few of its location plans. One of their titles is the visual novel BL UUUltraC, from developer ADELTA who was also the creator of Hashihime of the Old Book Town.
UUUltraC is a tribute to classic tokusatsu shows, set in the 70s in a world where superheroes and monstrous creatures (kaiju) exist. Specifically, the kaiju of this world infect people, turning them into the same kind of creature as well. According to the publisher, one of the themes of the title is identity and its impact on your sense of belonging.
As such, the game covers three routes, each representing a different side of the story. On the one hand, a couple fall victim to kaiju attacks and as the kaiju infection takes place, they decide to fight for acceptance. Another shows a couple fighting stressful battles as Rangers Icarus. And yet another shows the complicated relationships of people caught in the crossfire.
UUUltraC is written, designed and composed by Rinko Kurosawa, who is currently working on the upcoming Ooe in Japan. Check out some of the game artwork shared by MangaGamer:
