History[edit]

In December 2014, DMM partnered with Nutaku with the objective of marketing and publishing games to the western market.[3] Nutaku is currently the sole distributor of DMM games outside Japan.

In January 2015, the platform was launched with four Japanese games that were translated for an English-speaking audience. Although they began with the release of card battle RPG “Lord of Valkyrie,” Nutaku has rapidly expanded its selection to include online games of the card-battle, adventure,[4] city building,[5] and sim genres.[6] It is particularly noted for its broad selection of translated Japanese erotic games.[7]

In August 2015 an online version of Everlasting Summer with restored adult content was released on Nutaku.[8] In November 2015 Nutaku announced the launch of an all-ages website.[9]

In July 2016, Nutaku announced their partnership with Kimochi, a downloadable game client focused on the digital distribution of adult games from around the world.[10][11] In early 2017, Nutaku released Android compatible version of some of their more popular games.

In February 2017, Nutaku announced the launch of Kimochi Red Light, a new crowdfunding platform that's been set up exclusively to crowdfund adult games.[12][13]

At Anime Expo 2017 in July, Nutaku held a panel in which an employee, expressed the platform as being "the steamy Steam". By this time, the platform had reached 9 million users.
