Update 6 February 2018: A demo version is now available from MangaGamer.com. It includes the first few chapters of the common route and excerpts of one love scene from each couple’s storyline.
MangaGamer has announced A Kiss For The Petals – Maidens of Michael is scheduled for release on 22 February 2018 at a price of $34.99. Pre-orders are now open on MangaGamer.com at a discounted price of $31.49. Maidens of Michael will also be available on Steam.
As with The New Generation, this version benefits from a complete rewrite in the Ren’Py engine, bringing support to macOS and Linux; an increase in resolution to 1600 x 1200; new features such as a Climax Timer and customizable text box; and use of modern, efficient compression methods for images and sound.
For the first time in the series, a full-length title will be available on Steam in an all-ages edited form. Explicit scenes are deleted, with their corresponding images and replays unavailable from the Extra menu. However, a small number of CGs that portray partial nudity are retained. A content patch will be available free of charge on MangaGamer.com to restore the omitted content. The Steam release will also include achievements, and the Steam store page contains a video showing a segment of the first chapter.
MangaGamer’s announcement for the pre-order and release date is reproduced from the staff blog below.

But that’s not all! The Sonohana team has worked very closely with YurinYurin to bring Maidens of Michael to the west in HD! Compared to the original 800×600 release, our version utilizes unscaled artwork in 1600×1200!
Amidst the flirtations of couples, established and spontaneous ones alike, excitement was brewing over the informal student poll to decide “St. Michael’s Best Couples.” Not having a girlfriend, Risa didn’t think the matter concerned her… Until she and Miya were chosen as a pair!
Naturally, Risa denied having any sort of romantic relationship, but the classmates who endorsed them simply smiled gently with the reasoning of refined girls brought up in respectable families, saying, “You always appear to be having such fun.” Although the two agree to go along with it for appearance’s sake, it turns out they’ll also be stuck on an committee with four other couples, planning events for the upcoming holidays of Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
Will they be able to make it through the upcoming events in the company of these prominent couples? And will Risa be able to survive spending the lovers’ holidays of Christmas and Valentine’s Day with Miya?
