FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Culture Select Announces New Localization and Greenlight Campaign for Heart of Crown PC in English!
DELAWARE, USA – February 26, 2016 – Culture Select announced today the start of a Steam Greenlight campaign for the localization of “Heart of Crown PC” into English! Heart of Crown PC is the digital edition of the popular Princess-themed deck building card game Heart of Crown. This title is being released in conjunction with Japanime Games, who are handling the physical card game and have recently kicked off the Heart of Crown Kickstarter, and MangaGamer, who will assist in QA and distribution. The Greenlight page can be found at: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=629675278.
This new project highlights Culture Select’s dedication to accomplishing their vision of expanding the market for localization. By bridging the gap between card games and digital, in the context of an unlikely partnership, Heart of Crown will be able to reach the widest possible audience.
When asked about the partnership, Culture Select CEO John Baumlin stated, “We’re helping the digital card game, visual novel, and anime hobbyist audiences all get together and try an expansive title with many different elements. A few passionate people on each side really wanted to make this a reality, and I’m just so grateful to everyone involved for making Heart of Crown a possibility. From Kickstarter backers to developers, from freelancing staff to time-tested platforms. It’s just going to be a huge project and I’m happy to facilitate the partnership.”
Veteran card gamers and newcomers to the genre alike will be able to enjoy Heart of Crown PC when it releases later this year. The physical Heart of Crown Kickstarter runs until 2:00 PM EST on Thursday, March 10th, 2016. It can be found at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/370924922/heart-of-crown-deck-building-card-game.
