While Dengeki disappointed many, Visual Arts’ themselves have now started taking action for their 20th anniversary – mentioning an Angel Beats! visual novel is in the works within a NicoNico Live conference.
An Angel Beats! visual novel had previously only been speculated and expressed as a project that Visual Arts’ president would enjoy working on – yet now, an Angel Beats! visual novel is currently said to be moving along nicely, interestingly however is that the game hasn’t been explicitly announced as an upcoming title, rather, it was just said to be progressing, and nothing further was shared. This could mean a game is indeed in the works – or like Dengeki, Visual Arts’ may simply be taking otaku for a needless hype spiral of rage.
Two events to keep in mind, Visual Arts’ is planning an extravaganza for their 20th anniversary in July – and Dengeki is to have their own a few months earlier in May. A visual novel is splendid in itself – although that could be a branch for more projects to come, ideally animated ones, not PVC based.
