Free Eroge to Promote Figma?

February 12, 2010 at 8:57 pm 10 comments

The biggest surprise this week has been Native’s announcement that their upcoming game se.Kirara will be free for download off their site. You could also get the game packaged with a figma of one of the heroines for 2800 yen.

Now you might be wondering why any sane eroge company would release its games for free. Well, first of all, Native isn’t really an eroge company; it’s owned by figure maker Max Factory. So, it seems that they are using the game as incentive to buy the figma. As a coincidence, I don’t think that much should be expected from the story. That being said, the characters are cute (especially Yuu), so it’s worth taking a look at it if you have time.

The following games have been announced this week:

I.D.Hatsukoi Yohou.
minoriTenshi no Nichiyoubi -ef Pleasurable Box-

Since La’cryma is affiliated with CIRCUS, Fortissimo will be full of references to both companies’ past games. The game itself is a magic battle ADV. The theme of I.D.’s debut game is “male-oriented shoujo manga”. I can hear Zen cringing. The ef fandisk will include 4 after stories and 3 another stories (Yuuko, Nagi and the other Mizuki). Meanwhile, release dates have been set for the following:

Dosukoi! Jousetsu Sumou – March 19th
Kotori Love Ex P – April 23rd
ComSome! ~combination somebody~ – May 28th
Kimi no Nagori wa Shizuka ni Yurete – May 28th
Meguri Megureba Meguru Toki!? – May 28th

The limited edition of upcoming AkabeeSoft2 game Okiba ga Nai! will include a 1/6 scale PVC figure of Shanon. I like the character design and pose, but don’t intend to get the game.

The chara poll for Gengetsu no Pandora will run till March 10th. Lots of players have mentioned that imouto Shinorin is really awesome and it shows in the current rankings. Otome Renshin Prister‘s chara poll will be up until March 14th. It’s split into character and Pokemon prister rankings.

Character pages for Seitokai no Ichizon -DS Suru Seitokai- are up with screenshots. Mafuyu-chan is adorable!

I’ve been making my way through Hoshimemo EH and loving every minute of it! I wish that the after stories were longer, but Mare’s story definitely was great. Hopefully I’ll have time to finish it over this week. Also, happy Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year! Oh, and go watch the Olympics too! Go Canada Go ^^

Am I the only one who likes Chinami? by SnooSnoo
I won’t say I like her, but I don’t find her annoying anymore after the seiyuu change.

    Happy Valentine’s/Single Awareness and Chinese New Year.
    While we are on the topic, Micchi do people celebrate Chinese New Year in Canada?

    I recognize all of the main heroine’s voice.
    I think they are pulling a bet on this one.
    Let’s just hope they would succeed.

    Sankaku also picked up on se.kirara. Wouldn’t have noticed that Aoyama Yukari’s voicing the main heroine if not for that article.

    Currently playing Hoshimemo FD too. Mare looks so adorable on piggyback. >w<

    If the girls are as cute as the ones pictured on the I.D. site, call me a shoujo manga fan.

    Happy Valentine’s/Single Awareness and Chinese New Year. It’s a good thing I am not those Olympic athletes who are Chinese who have a lover…their weekend will be crazy!

    That’s quite an extreme method of promoting those figmas. Marketing is serious business.

    @SnooSnoo: Yes, we celebrate Chinese New Year here too, just not on the scale of those in HK/China. It’s not as lively these years maybe due to the recession.

    @Kresnik: I am hoping for their success too.

    @m3rry: Mare is so cute! Ima is also adorable ><

    @Observer 31: I think the Olympics is the most important thing in that case. Valentine's Day is more of a Hallmark holiday anyway.

    @Reltair: Just like eroge is.
