The month it was released, Kara no Shoujo ranked sixth in national PC game pre-orders in Japan and would receive a sequel on February 8th, 2013. It currently has a Very Positive review on Steam.

These releases will serve as the definitive editions of all three VNs – including the extended prologues for KnS 1 & 2. It’s also being based off the HD editions of KnS 1 & 2 that had been released in Japan in 2020.

English speaking readers will be happy to hear that there’s a dedicated localizer and translator for these releases. KnS 3, aka The Last Episode, which was released December 25th of 2020, will also finally receive an official localization.
