Song of Saya is a Lovecraftian horror visual novel by Nitroplus that originally came out in Japan in 2003. It did receive an English translation in 2013, but now Song of Saya Remastered is headed to Steam this month.

Song of Saya Remastered headed to Steam
The remastered version of the original visual novel has been made from the ground up on an entirely new engine and features new artwork based on the original.
The visual novel was written back in 2003, by the acclaimed manga writer Gen Urobuchi who has also written other stuff including Psycho-Pass, Madika Magica, and Fate/Zero.
Song of Saya Remastered Release Date
The game is headed to Steam sometime this month, and other platforms aren’t disclosed yet, but we don’t expect it to release on anything else until the Steam version performs well.
Steam’s library has a great amount of both light and visual novels now, and Japanese developers have taken a great interest in the platform. Not only small indie developers have taken an interest, but big companies like CAPCOM, SEGA, Platinum Games, ATLUS and plenty more have released both new and old titles on it.
The visual novel itself has fairly positive reviews and has been described to have a lot of disturbing content, and sexual imagery throughout, so it’s definitely not for everyone.
It’s always nice to get remasters of old titles, as it’s the best way to preserve games, and modernize their dated elements, and make them accessible.
