Another August capitulates before the doujins. Blade x Bullet - Kinrin no Soleil is the only normal game and winner by default. Did not find Clephas winner for August, but it's ether the same or fandisc or none. Micchi is more interested in Kotonoha Amrilato and fandisc.

 

1. Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2 -Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Kakugo- 大逆転裁判2 -成歩堂龍ノ介の覺悟- [170803] Capcom 1 2 3 4

Two months after the events of the previous game, Susato Mikotoba learns that her best friend, Haori Murasame, has been accused of murdering the murderer of Dr. Watson. With no defense attorney willing to help, she decides to do so. However, since women aren't allowed in Japanese courts, she disguises herself as Ryūnosuke Naruhodō's cousin Ryutarō. Meanwhile, Ryūnosuke assists her in the case, and the two of them become involved in a conspiracy.
Detective is localized and has English reviews

 

2. Watashi wa Kyou Koko de Shinimasu. 私は今日ここで死にます。 [170816] mint wings 1 2

What do you do when you see someone about to take their life? I’m sure there’s more than one answer to that question — but when it happened to me, I had neither the time nor the composure for idle philosophy.
When he sees Mishima Yuka throw herself off a bridge into the river below, Haibara Kyousuke follows right after, saving her from drowning. But it’s not like he wants to deal with this kid — he just had to do it… or so he wants to think. Well, said girl wants none of his indifference, and forces her way into his life — to find out why exactly he saved her life, or so she says. All Kyousuke wants is that she at least end her life without regrets; all she wants is to take her life. But just as Mishima has her demons, Kyousuke has his own to deal with. How do you find the strength to live in a world where you don’t fit in, where nothing seems to quite work out for you? They’re both looking for an answer… and maybe together, they can find it.
There are English reviews

4. Kotonoha Amrilato ことのはアムリラート [170825] SukeraSparo 1
maxresdefault%2B%25281%2529.jpg
High schooler Rin was just buying a snack in her hometown’s shopping district一but she gets a shock when her surroundings suddenly transform.
"...Why is the sky pink...?"
She should know this area well, but the unreadable letters on the signs and the strange language the people are speaking have made things unrecognizable.
...Just then, Ruka, a girl so cute she could be an idol, appears and extends a helping hand.
Rin, a high schooler who claims to have positivity in spades, and Ruka, a supportive girl who speaks just a smattering of Japanese.
This is the story, pure and sometimes frustrating, of two girls intertwined by their fumbling efforts to communicate.

Standing outside of the classroom, the protagonist took a deep breath and calmed his nerves. Once he summoned the courage to open the door, he was immediately surrounded by girls in the class who treated him like a rare animal. That is natural since this had been an all-girls school until last year. However, not all the students were receptive of having a boy in their class. There were three groups: those for the co-ed change, those against it, and those whose views were in between. He has yet to get used to his new life in this new classroom with new friends, but he felt that his future is full of possibilities.

He founded a new Maired clan and ruled over a vast territory in the southern part of the kingdom. He thought that it would be a pleasant and relaxing life, but he wasn’t ready for the amount of work that was involved. Of course, there’s lots of paperwork and required appearances, but also having to answer to faction requests, making babies and naming a future successor? Everything was new to him and the only people to help him was the daughter of a ruined noble family, a knight who had been dismissed with dishonour, and a high-class prostitute. He didn’t know if they could be relied on, but nevertheless he takes his first step towards successfully managing his territory.

Blade X Bullet is one of the best games in the Soleil series by Skyfish, though it is significantly more straightforward in its darkness (ALL the main players are either Lawful Evil or Chaotic Evil by nature) than the rest of the series.  The main character of the game is the latest incarnation of Loki, who was condemned after Ragnarok to forever wander as a mortal warrior, appearing only in the worst of worst of situations and losing anything he values in the process.  It is based in a world where the old gods, made into the cogs and gears that ran the world behind the scenes, become basically undead monsters wreaking havoc across the world.  Typical of most Soleil games, people then make artificial Valkyries to fight them... but are too late to prevent the annihilation of civilization.  Heimdall (supposedly THAT Heimdall) then invites the surviving Valkyries and their masters to his castle, to decide the future of the world.

Shinimasu - Utsuge VN that Zakamutt worked on, and currently is still in the process of being translated with the remaining work is to do QA before the release.

Wagahigh OC - I guess I can say that Wagahigh here is the most successful Madosoft VNs seeing that it's their only VN that has fandisc. Anyway Wagahigh FD here add the routes for the side characters along with the after stories for each of heroines in the main game if I remember right. There's still no word on Sekai will license this despite a lot of request, so let's just say that it seems not possible to have this localized (For now).

Amrilato - GL VN with the isekai element in that our MC Rin was sent to the world where every people spoke Esperanto, which caused some communication block because obviously Rin can't speak Esperanto. While the language block in isekai here is already unique when it come to many other isekai works (The only isekai work that has same plot is Aselia if I remember correctly, and many isekai MCs out there are usually granted the ability to understand the language of the new world), what make it more unique is that in here we'll have Esperanto classes in that we'll going to see some Esperanto lesson so at least you can say that this is educational VN to a degree (Obviously though you'll need more than this VN to really learn Esperanto, but at least Amrilato here should be a good start if you want to learn Esperanto because the staffs did ask Esperanto language expert when they made Amrilato here).

That's all for my comment in regard of August 2017 releases.
