As One Story Ends, Another Begins
CIRCUS held a mini live in Shibuya on November 1st as part of its 10th anniversary celebrations. Guests included yozuca* and CooRie. During this event, they announced their plans for upcoming games. It was also broadcasted live on Niconico and reported on by MOON PHASE.
It’s here!!!!!!!! ｷ･ｷ･ｷ･ｷﾀ━━━━━━(ﾟ∀ﾟ)━━━━━━!!!!
Honestly, this shouldn’t surprise anyone. I’ve been waiting for this announcement since the release of the D.C.II Fall in Love OP that marked it as the final chapter of D.C.II. Where will they go with this one? Another 50 years in the future? I’m still awaiting an Amakase Mifuyu.
They skipped IV and went straight to V. Actually, it’s a cross between D.C. and Valkyrie Complex. I’ve already mentioned this before. Kyrie, Mikoto, Kylayne and Elis move from the battlefield fighting monsters and other enemies to the metaphorical battlefield of love in Kazumi Gakuen. While it’ll be nice to see Elis again, I hope this doesn’t extend to more than one game since it’s just a crossover.
Now they’re going backwards too! This is actually a continuation of Sakura’s story from D.C.II, aka the true end. I am actually quite looking forward to this as it probably will answer our questions about her past and maybe give her a happy end at last.
Hatsunejima Miku Mirai
First of all, this isn’t that Miku. Actual title is Mirai (未来); I guess they just pronounced it as ‘miku’ since it’s a pun. I’m not even sure if it’s a game, all I know is something about the future (GJ Captain Obvious.) It’s quite possible that this is actually the ai sp@ce renewal mentioned below.
CIRCUS Tactics (tentative title)
What? Another SRPG? Haven’t CIRCUS learned from the Eternal Fantasy and VC flops that they should probably leave these to Eushully or GIGA?
New D.C. anime series in spring 2010
The rumor is that it will be based on the original D.C. cast, although the story details are unknown at the moment. However, this just means more Miharu for me~! >w<b
D.C. download version available on November 20th
A cheaper version of D.C. in case you haven’t played it already. Classic.
D.C. adapted for PSP
A bit late, but I wonder if they add new scenes and CGs…
D.C. if ported back to PC
For those that didn’t watch the OVA or play the PS2 version, this is the story where Junichi doesn’t end up with Nemu, but with Kotori. Personally, I’m torn between Nemu and Kotori.
D.C. adult comic
Wait, adult comic? An official H manga? This isn’t usually the sort of thing that companies announce. Need more info on this one.
ai sp@ce renewal
Not sure about what they mean by ‘renewal’, but I assume that it’ll mostly be cosmetic. ai sp@ce is all about dressing up anyway.
I guess most of you aren’t hardcore D.C./CIRCUS fans, but this is really exciting news for me! I can’t wait for next year!
