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. Source: Link
