Recettear English Localization
I’m sure some of you have heard that doujin circle EasyGameStation‘s item shop RPG Recettear: Itemya-san no Hajimekata is being translated by startup group Carpe Fulgur into English as Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale and will be available for download starting September 10th. It’ll be distributed on GamersGate, Impulse and Steam, with a 10% discount off pre-orders at 18 USD. You can check out a series of casual playthrough videos here. I find it pretty awesome that a doujin game is being translated into English with the approval of the original producer and made available online to the general public. It’s about time we had a feel good story. Hopefully this will increase interest in other doujin games.
No new games announced this week. Release dates have been set for the following titles:
TYPE-MOON’s Mahoutsukai no Yoru has been delayed to later this winter, which is a shame since September looks pretty barren.
Mahjong title K-TEN is adding a plug-in where you can play with Shin Koihime Musou characters in free mode. Everyone is no match for Hawawa and Awawa Generals and their superior strategies.
The second PV for T.P. Sakura shows the battle scenes. It really looks like a cross between Nanoha and Cardcaptor Sakura. Miharu beeeeeeeeeeeeam~!!!!
MOONSTONE Cherry has opened the official site for Imouto Paradise. So Hiyori and Koharu are twins! Delicious!
Sedna topped the Maximum Magic chara poll, which had really low vote counts. How can you declare a winner with 42 votes?
Nana placed first in the Elle:PrieR chara poll. There’s a commemorative wallpaper available for download.
AXL has started up a Twitter account. It’s absolutely filled to the brim with their chibis.
Lass title 11eyes CrossOver will be ported over to the iPhone/iPod Touch.
A small feature for those interested in doujin games and Touhou: BlueMica‘s C78 release Ojousama no Dokidoki Daisakusen. You play as Remilia who roams the halls of the Scarlet Devil Mansion after weird things start happening. It’s an ACT/STG with ADV elements, so you can get your fill of bullet dodging while enjoying the story. Check out the gameplay video.
The sidebar has now been updated with the on-air schedule for the upcoming fall anime season. The Oreimo anime site has posted character profiles for Ayase and Kanako. The second radio broadcast is also up.
Oreimo volume 7 is coming out on November 10th. Kyousuke, you know what to do! I mentioned the Ayase Niitengo last week. There’s also Niitengo of Kirino and Kuroneko in the January issue of Dengeki G’s (Nov 30th) and Dengeki G’s Festival!! Vol. 19 (Dec), respectively. Kuroneko is my fav out of all three. ｳｯｰｳｯｰｳﾏｳﾏ(ﾟ∀ﾟ) Ayase looks so young in the manga! I thought she would look older, but I guess she is just 13 after all. Siskari and the tentacle imouto make their appearances! I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this imouto somewhere before…
Yay! The fourth volume of my favourite light novel Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai! is coming out on September 25th! I hope there’s more Sora moments!
Aside from the second volume of Prave!, there’s also two new series from Dengeki Bunko:
Chiisana Majo to Sora Tobu Kitsune (Minai Daisuke, illust by Ooyari Ashito), about the ace pilot of the Lewetria Air Force, Krause, who was suddenly asked to be an important assistant in a plot to end the civil war. He has to become the knight for a 16 year old witch named Anna-Lisa. You probably recognize the chara designs from little witch.
Gekkou (Mamiya Natsuki, illust by Shiromiso) follows an odd guy Nonomiya who is sick of the daily norm. One day, he picks up the notebook of the class idol Youko and found a piece of paper sticking out: “Recipe for Killing”. What will his relationship with this cute and cynical woman be like? So definitely don’t judge a book by its cover. I wonder what her true nature is…
The Prism Rhythm novel from Paradigm came out on August 31st. Focus should be on Elsterrier.
The latest portrait in Alchemist’s new project is a Siesta with a pink heart-shaped guitar. I think I can die happy now.
The new heroines in the upcoming Dream Club Zero are time agent Nonono and Mari (who was in the original game). In addition to new songs and casual clothes, there is a rodeo machine mode. I can already imagine the voiceovers.
Amagami is being ported over to the PSP this winter, with a few extra scenarios and mini-games (mahjong). I’ve been interested in it since watching the anime. By the way, Miya is awesome and I’m glad to see more of her in Sae’s arc. The PSP version of AIR is now available for download for 3500 yen.
Kotobukiya is making more and more Manaka de Ikuno!! figures. This time it’s Manaka sorceress ver. No scheduled date or price yet. Other figures by Kotobukiya are CLANNAD‘s Kyou from that scene, and Senjou no Valkyria‘s Alicia with Hans. Puchi Hans is so adorable!
Latest GSC nendoroid is Steins;Gate‘s Kurisu. Chara design was done by huke. Nothing too different except for the unique eyes. nemuiwanko is pretty excited about getting the latest Miku nendoroid: Absolute HMO edition. It looks quite different from the other nendoroids.
Check out azone’s 1/6 scale dolls of To Aru Kagaku no Railgun‘s Mikoto and Kuroko. Mikoto is priced at 13,650 yen and is released this October, while Kuroko is 15,750 yen and will be out in December. Biribiri doesn’t quite look like herself because of the eyes, but Kuroko is quite nice.
Both Remi (Daitouryou) and Yuu (se.Kirara) had their birthdays this week. You can download a commemorative wallpaper of Yuu here.
If you had to choose one of these D.C. I & II bath posters, which would it be? I’m torn between Miharu and Mahiru.
The last Kud Wafter merchandise that I expected to see is Kud oppai choco.
I’d play RO2 just to go see this. Although most likely it’ll a rare spawn that will be camped to hell. Oh well.
T-rack has Twitter accounts (Kanakon) with hiragana and punctuation as profile pictures. You can follow these to write words that show up in your follower icons. For example, check out my Twitter account to see what I wrote!
Hope you doing fine :)
I`m webmaster of the http://hentaiotaku.net. The site is mostly about hentai news, hentai fetishes, releases, eroge, some pictures, etc.
In plans is adding of tab about Japanese modern life, culture and traditions. Domain is rather old and has pr2.
Just take a look and if you`re interested in a link exchange, pls let me know.
Great thanks in advance :)
I’ve replied to this in the About section. Unfortunately, I’ll have to say no since I don’t really want to link to a site that specifically provides H material as I want to show people that it is not the focus of eroge. Good luck with your site though!
Yes! I beat FDCGR with my original team build setup! Dunno how to trigger the ending yet but got the main objectives done. by Amoirsp
Congrats! I never did end up beating the very final boss of FDC since my party really wasn’t set up for it and failing 15 times sucks (especially when you die in 2 rounds after chipping away at it for over 20 mins). That and my save files got wiped when my HD died…
