JAST USA Press Release: Adult PC RPG Lightning Warrior Raidy Goes Gold, Sequel Announced

San Diego, California, Thursday, March 13, 2008

JAST USA affiliate brand G-Collections, the leading publisher of Japanese PC dating sim games in English, today announced the golden master status of LIGHTNING WARRIOR RAIDY, the first 3D fantasy role playing game system for adults.

The protagonist is Raidy, a high-spirited female sword-fighter traveling the continent in search of adventure and the secrets of her past. When she comes upon a town plagued by monsters who steal away the beautiful young maidens and turn them into their slaves, Raidy is determined to set things right, risking life, limb, and virginity to do battle with the denizens of the tower.

With a classic combat feel in the tradition of the finest computer-based RPGs, the player navigates the maze-like tower, fighting hordes of sexy monster girls and gathering potions, weapons and armor to defeat the tower's twisted master. With the "sex if you win, sex if you lose" game system, Raidy is able to turn the twisted fetishes of the boss monsters against them if she defeats them in combat, or succumb to their wiles if she loses.

Peter Payne, president of JAST USA, said, "We're excited to be able to bring a completely new kind of adult anime PC game to the English-speaking market, and Raidy is a title that fans have been asking for for a long time. And while we're happy to have Lightning Warrior Raidy in duplication, we're just ecstatic about the sequel, Raidy II, a vast expansion of the game series with dozens of characters to fight and interact with. We hope fans will come to JASTUSA.com and check out our lineup of Japanese dating-sim games for adults. We hope fans of independent PC games will take a look at both titles, since they're great fun."

Ever since the first computers with color displays, Japan has had a strong culture of "love simulation" computer games which simulate emotional and sexual interaction between the player and various game characters when the player "wins" the love of a given character. PC dating-sim games are often referred to "hentai" or "H" games by U.S. fans. JAST USA has been involved in licensing and translating Japanese dating-sim games since 1998, and is the leading producer and distributor of English-language PC games for adults in any form. The company has a catalog of over 50 English-translated games with every theme, from costume play to cat girls to "futanari" (hermaphrodite), an especially popular genre in Japan. The company publishes a line of "boy's love" games, too.
