The 2022 visual novel AQUARIUM, which stars hololive’s gamer maid VTuber Minato Aqua, is now available on Steam with English interface and subtitle options. 

AQUARIUM, which was originally released for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan, is a romance visual novel developed by ENTERGRAM that casts players as the partially amnesiac young Master of the Francois family. In the story, Minato is a new maid who is assigned to the Master so that he can train his leadership skills, with love blossoming in the process.

Below is the game’s full synopsis:

This is the summer story of Aqua – a beginning maid carrying a secret – and her master (the player) who lost part of his memory.
The young Master, heir to the Francois family, has the same nightmare every night.
In it, he meets a girl, but they always end up quarreling and parting ways with the words “I hate you” ringing in his ears.
But just who is this girl…?

One summer’s day, the young Master’s elder sister tells him that in order to prepare for succeeding to the Francois family estate, he is to practice his leadership abilities.
To do that, his sister wishes for him to take a new maid under his wing so that he can guide and help her grow.

“I am the new maid, Aqua. From today, I will be responsible for your well-being, Master.”

The young Master immediately finds his heart drawn to Aqua, the new, clumsy maid who is burdened by a certain “secret” she cannot speak of. However, the two are separated from one another by an insurmountable wall—their social strata.

What shadow looms over the two as they face challenges and the opposition of society itself?
This is the pure summer love story of two individuals from completely different walks of life.

Aside from Minato, AQUARIUM stars her fellow Hololive colleagues Houshou Marine and Shirakami Fubuki as the Master’s other maid and older sister, respectively. Minato, who also produced the visual novel, won Best Actor at the Famitsu/Dengeki Game Awards 2022 for her role.

AQUARIUM‘s Steam version is priced at US$20.46 in the US. Earlier this year, there were pre-orders for special made-to-order physical Windows editions in Japan.
