Nyu Media Announces the Next Wave of Localized Japanese Indie Titles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Francisco, CA – November 18th, 2011 – Nyu Media, Ltd. is proud to announce its initial game line-up for the upcoming year. Nyu Media partners with Japanese indie developers to bring top indie video games to gamers around the world. From bullet-hell shoot ‘em ups to action and adventure games, this range of titles will suit a variety of gaming tastes.

“The high price of imports, limited distribution, and the language barrier have prevented gamers from fully enjoying many quality doujin games and supporting the developers by purchasing their products.” said Seon King, founder of Nyu Media. “We're very proud of our developer partners and the passion they have poured into these games and we're excited to support them and the indie community by making these games officially available to the global audience.”

Join vampires and deviants in their fight to survive annihilation in eXceed 2nd – Vampire REX by developer Tennen-sozai. Featuring the renowned dual-polarity gameplay system, you must fight through eight frenetic stages of bullet hell action. In the sequel, eXceed 3rd – Jade Penetration Black Package, battle your way through a tournament to become one of the seven Cardinal Lords who rule over the world of Pandemonium.

ASTRO PORT’s celebrated arcade-style side-scrolling shooter, SATAZIUS proves that a massive offensive is the best defense as you fight to escape a planet of space pirates. Featuring old school graphics, gigantic boss battles, and an arsenal of upgradeable weapons, SATAZIUS is a treasure chest of homages to the classics of the genre.

Guide heroine Miley Verisse in the anime-style adventure game Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, as she endeavors to recruit new members for her high school comedy club. Developer atelier773’s game features a host of quirky characters, catchy music, and is a must for fans of anime and manga. Laugh and the world laughs with you!

ETHER VAPOR Remaster is a cinematic 3D arcade shooter and visual treat from developer Edelweiss. Explosions, lasers, ships and backgrounds are breathtakingly rendered in up to 1600 x 1200 resolution. The dynamic camera uses vertical, horizontal and cinematic chase cam views to switch up the action and highlight the drama.

In the second title from Edelweiss, Fighting Fairy (working title), you must battle to save your enchanted forest from waves of monsters and human invaders as the toughest little sprite around. The game’s cute looks belie a richly featured beat ‘em up with awesome chaining combos and RPG-style leveling. That's right, don't mess with the fairy!

All titles will be released on leading digital distribution services for the PC, starting winter 2011. For media or additional inquiries, use the contact information below or look out for more details regarding this line-up as we keep you posted in the coming weeks.
