Concerto, Shallot and Sprite are all new companies. I’ll be keeping my eye on Sprite since their art is very pretty. Shallot is a sister company of the AkabeeSoft2 brand. Rebirth will be a full game of Rondo -O-va-chua- from Mogitate BasiL!. August will be also be announcing a new game later this winter.
TailWind/TailSkid announced that they were closing earlier this week. While I didn’t play their games, Trample on Schatten!! did get some good reviews.
Release dates have been set for the following games:
BaseSon‘s Shin Koihime Musou Desktop Mascot ~Itsudemo Issho~ package will be coming out on December 25th.
Akatsuki Works Hibiki is holding a chara poll for upcoming game Shiden until November 14th. MOONSTONE Cherry is holding H scene polls for IchaPri!. The current one is Sakura and Koyuri (until November 4th). NekoNekoSoft is accepting suggestions for the Sorairo fandisk on their BBS. I just want more Ai-chan!!!
Suzunone Seven! will be ported to PS2 in March by Alchemist as Suzunone Seven! ~Rebirth knot~. There will be two new heroines introduced. Alchemist is also releasing a new game called No Fate! -only the power of will- for the PSP and Xbox 360. It comes out February 25th.
Good Smile Company is releasing a pair of figures for the Nanoha movie in January. First up is a mini Nanoha nendoroid for 3500 yen. The second is a Fate figma for 2800 yen, although it’s by Max Factory and the quality isn’t that good. Nanoha is adorable though ><b
A closer look at the mini Higurashi figures from Takara Tomy Arts that are part of the promotion for Higurashi Daybreak Portable MEGA Edition for the PSP. They cost 300 yen each and there’s rare versions too!
It seems like mini figures are really popular. Bandai Collectors has some really cute K-ON! figures for 500 yen each. The stand at the back looks awkward, but it’s fine from the front. My favs are Yui (stage ver), Azunyan and Ui. MOVIC is also releasing a 1/8 scale PVC original costume Mio figure. It’ll be out in January with a 7140 yen price tag. I like the design; they made good use of that zettai ryouiki.
Kotobukiya‘s latest figure is a 1/10 scale PVC of Charlotte from Quartett!, an eroge by little witch which came out a few years ago. The design is relatively simple and the 3990 yen price tag reflects that. It’ll be out in February. They are also releasing a 1/8 scale PVC figure of my favorite character from Koihime Musou – ‘hawawa strategist’ Shuri! It’ll be out on February 28th at 5040 yen. She comes with her signature fan and you could take her beret off if you want (although why would you!?) はわわ！
The latest collaborations at ai Sp@ce are with NekoNekoSoft (Sorairo) and BaseSon (Koihime Musou – Shuri outfit). They keep on partnering with titles I like, but unfortunately it’s basically just a dress-up game. And they want you have to pay for it.
The GungHo Festival 2009 will be running this Sunday in Yokohama and it’s free to enter if you’re in the area. Flagship titles Ragnarok Online, Emil Chronicle Online and Grandia will be represented. The main event is the Ragnarok World Championship 2009 (RWC2009) which is held in Japan this year after being held in South Korea and the Philippines in past years. I’m not sure if any of my ex-guildies will be there, but good luck to the iRO contingent. They’ll need it.
In case you didn’t know how to masturbate…
Innovation at its best.
It took a while, but the company site listing has been updated. Please feel free to use this as a resource.
I hope you’re all having fun with this month’s releases. I’ll probably be starting up Shuffle! Essence+ in a few days. Wait for me, Daisy! November is looking really light, so you’ll have plenty of time to work on your backlogs ^^
clap clap clap =)
do i ever annoy you onii-chan? With useless claps?
I’ll work hard to press your buttons one day…
then cower in fear

Well it just means I have something to respond to this week ^o^ And I’m immune to that since Zen is a total ass. Even though he actually secretly loves moege.
