Nutaku has just launched a brand-new visual novel by the name of Sakura Apprentice. If you've ever wanted to get stared at disdainfully by a smug warrior waifu, then this might just be the game for you.
In Sakura Apprentice, players take on the role of a man named Riven in the fantasy world of Elodia. Riven is training to become a knight in the capital under the tutelage of the incredibly strict and straight-laced knight Alma. At some point, he manages to catch the eye of someone else — Freyja, the most beautiful girl in the land (and an undefeated fighter in her own right).
Much to Riven's surprise, Freyja decides to take him under her wing for a seriously intensive training program. Unbeknownst to Riven, however, is the exact nature of Freyja's training. Suffice it to say, Freyja's training is seriously exhausting but doesn't have very much to do with combat techniques.
Pushed to his limits, Riven will navigate a world of heroes, villains, and rivals as he tries to survive the libido of one of the nation's strongest warriors while worrying himself to death about what his previous instructor Alma is going to say about the whole thing. This is, of course, a Nutaku game; you can expect things to get pretty steamy (and you won't have to deal with any censorship, either).
You can pick up Sakura Apprentice right now for the low price of $4.99/499 Nutaku coins or your regional equivalent as a DRM-free, downloadable title from Nutaku.
