CREST announced Novus, a new visual novel brand comprised of former Minato Soft development staff. The new studio is based in Yokohama, Japan with the objective of releasing new all-ages visual novel experiences.
Joint development of games with content creators and anime studios is currently planned for Novus. For example, CREST announced a business partnership with Akame ga Kill! mangaka Takahiro. Novus will likely be the developer for the new project during this partnership. The future already looks promising for Novus and more details regarding future projects should come soon.
