Angel Present (エンジェルプレゼント) is a Adventure video game published by NEC Interchannel released on April 12th, 2001 for the SEGA Dreamcast.
Regardless of the breast-focused cover artwork and the fact that it’s published by NEC Interchannel, Angel Present is in fact not just another visual novel title. Yes, granted, there is still huge amounts of text to go through, and a knowledge of Japanese is vital, but the game takes place in a 2.5d environment with adventure elements in 2 different worlds, and 3d battles giving more immediate action. The game mixes these more action-based elements, with static screens and text and CG movies. The story centres around the main protagonist stumbling across a fairy and soon discovering they have magical powers.
As with the less-action orientated NEC Interchannel titles, however, a translation guide is a must without knowledge of Japanese.
