Dream Party: Aim for the Harem Route!
Dream Party 2009 Tokyo will be held this Sunday at the Tokyo Big Sight, with almost all companies attending it. There was a lot of news in the eroge world this week as companies prepare for this major event.
From this month’s issue of TECH GIAN comes a bunch of new game announcements. The main one (as Kres had already pointed out) is the RPG fandisk Tenkuu no Yumina -ForeverDreams-, with Nayuta as the main heroine. It’s scheduled for a winter 2010 release. Other games are:
There’s also a mysterious game titled Taiyou no Ko, featuring staff from AkabeeSoft2, GIGA, CandySoft, among others. More news on this will come out in 2 months.
New release dates this week include:
Fake Azure Arcology – December 17th
Dies irae ~Acta est Fabula~ – December 25th
Hana to Otome ni Shukufuku o Royal Bouquet – January 29th
RUNE LORD – January 29th
Yunibaru! Paranormal Girls Strike!! – January 29th
KOI-LABO. – February 26th
The following games have been delayed:
There’s a seiyuu change for Erika in D.C.II Fall in Love. She is now voiced by Tamiyasu Tomoe instead of Ishikawa Yoshiko.
Navel blocked foreign IPs for all of one day. Wonder what that was about. Anyways, there will be 12 endings for SHUFFLE! Essence+ and some routes (like Daisy’s) will not be open at the very beginning. Rumors has it there’s a bonus if you finish the entire game.
More info about the story for Citron Soft‘s Imouto Smile has come out. Some rich kid who lives alone sees a cute girl outside and thinks that it would be nice if she were his little sister, and then she comes to his door and announces that she is. What? I didn’t expect much of a plot, but this is pretty bad. Looking at the H scene dialogue, it seems more like a nukige than one based on a story. I’m highly disappointed since I wanted a good story with lots of imouto meromero.
The chara poll for Tropical Kiss has started up with Matsuri and Hotaru currently in the lead. You can vote once per day until November 5th. There’s also a chara poll for Sugarcoat Freaks, although it doesn’t seem like there’s an end date. I guess it’s until the release date on December 18th. Green Strawberry also has a chara poll even though it was just announced. It runs until November 9th. Sakurako is really cute ^^
Battler won the first chara poll on 07th Expansion for Umineko no Naku Koro ni Chiru. Beatrice placed second. In announcing the results on the blog, Ryukishi07 also broke news that long-time 07th Expansion staff member and close friend BT-san passed away due to illness. His post was really touching. RIP.
Studio Ryokucha has an interesting poll running on their Koiiro Sora Moyou blog. If you could change your past, to which point in time would you return to? Personally, I would repeat my high school days and then complete university again, but without falling into the trap known as MMOs. Of course, that depends on if you retain your memories so you don’t make the same mistakes. Hindsight is always 20/20.
It’s the 10th anniversary for NekoNekoSoft (although they took a 3 year break in the middle) and they will hold a poll regarding the Sorairo fandisk next week. I’m almost done Ai’s world in Sorairo and I really loved Ai’s route. Kenji and Ai are the best siblings ever!
Latest goodies from Good Smile Company are charms of the really cute Pylori Miku and Pylori Rin and cathead Toet. These 30mm tall charms come out in January, at a price of 500 yen each. Their latest PVC figure is Hayakawa Yuzuko from Yuzuko Peppermint. It comes out in March at a price of 9800 yen, with a drama CD and booklet. I haven’t heard of this manga before. The chain and movement is nice, but I don’t like the blue/white hair. The next nendoroid is Magical Marine Pixel Mari-tan‘s Jiei-tan, scheduled for March at 4500 yen for the special edition (3500 yen for normal).
The OP for Higurashi Daybreak Portable Mega Edition is out. Hauuu~ Chibi charas are adorable!
Dengeki Moeou releases an illustration collection every season and the theme for this winter is bandages (ばんそうこう). Mini-figures of the To Aru Majutsu no Index cast will accompany the upcoming issues of Dengeki Daioh.
“Nakeru! Bishoujo Game Goroku” (1260 yen) by PHP Kenkyuusho offers famous quotations from nakige (games that make you cry). key’s works are definitely included, along with Da Capo, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Fate/stay night (although this isn’t really a nakige), Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku o and Kazoku Keikaku. Samples can be seen off Akiba Blog. I’ve always loved nakige for their stories. A ranking on Niconico listed AIR as the top nakige as of July 2007. What do you think is the best one now?
Pizza Hut supports Railgun. I’m very interested in that double roll.
I laughed at George not being on the cover of his own Umineko character album. The guy can’t catch any breaks.
PonyCanyon released a sound CD called NaviKano ~Omukae ni Kichatta~, where you can choose between a ladylike osananajimi or a tomboyish imouto to be your raburabu guide as you journey from the Tokyo Big Sight to Shinbashi station. The tracks are coordinated with the stations on the Yurikamome. This is a brilliant idea.
I know I’ve mentioned Kagabuu before, but I find it too funny not to post more pictures of her.
Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I’m quite busy IRL. I’ll try to keep the weekly news on Friday, but there might be times when it’s pushed back to Saturday or Sunday.
