Christmas Present: Katawa Shoujo Artbook PDFs

Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas!

Four Leaf Studios, together with the Katawa Shoujo Japanese translation team, would like to give all our fans a christmas present this year. And that christmas present is .pdf versions of the currently released artbooks; the Katawa Shoujo Player Guide, and Fragments of Summer.

We plan to release a .pdf copy of Midwinter, the third Katawa Shoujo artbook, around mid-March. Those who buy Midwinter at Comiket will have the exclusivity of a physical copy, and be able to view it several months earlier than anyone else.

This was all made possible by the very hard work of the Japanese translation team, who were responsible for Comiket organisation, all physical printing and publishing work, and translation of the artist and writer comments contained in the artbooks. A big thank you from the 4LS team goes to all of you guys. And of course, a big thank you also goes out to all the artists who contributed, both developers and fanartists.

Without further ado, here are the artbooks. Have a very merry Christmas from Four Leaf Studios, and a happy new year!

Katawa Shoujo Will be Released on January 4th

Katawa Shoujo will release on January 4, 2012.

Of course, 2012 is not 2011, and we do apologise for that. The date of 4 January was selected in order to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the /a/ sticky that started this project, and will see the release of the full version of the game.

We thank you for your patience in waiting for the game to be completed, especially those who have contributed to the game's development. It's been a long ride, but the end is finally near.

Katawa Shoujo Artbook at Comiket 81

Hi all,

The Katawa Shoujo Japanese translation team got a desk in the coming Winter Comiket, Comiket 81. The location and dates are: Dec 31 (Sat - Day 3) East "Pe" (ペ) Block 15a (East-5 hall).

Our new doujinshi is a B5 sized artbook of 20 pages, just like the summer artbook. Artists from the development team as well as the Shimmie regulars contributed their masterpieces.

The book is titled "Midwinter", in contrast to the previous book, and will be distributed at 400 JPY.

They will be bringing additional stock of the summer artbook "Fragments of Summer" to Comiket as well.
