Release dates have been set for the following:
The following titles have been delayed:
A few surprising results came out of recent chara polls, with Rinko topping the Cocoro Rista! vote (despite being a subchara), and the store employee winning the Seiiki series subheroine poll (despite not having a tachi-e). In a more expected result, Saya took first in the Yozora chara poll. It wasn’t even close. The Tayutama2 chara poll is underway and runs until January 31st.
Volume 4 of PRETTY×CATION‘s raburabu birthday series (Suzuka) will be on shelves on March 18th.
The Konosora Cruise Sign PSV port has been set for a March 31st release.
Kaga Create, the company that brought us PSV titles Higurashi Sui, Saki -Zenkokuban- and Majokoi Dragon×Caravan, has disbanded as of December 31st, citing difficulties in today’s mobile game-centric environment. It seems that all other fields are suffering from the same dilemma.
The Kickstarter campaign for the English release of Kyuuketsu Hime no Libra was successful, raising over US$180,000 with 2285 backers.
Tadaima! I’ve been back for almost a week now, but I’m still jetlagged (and for some reason on Europe time). I had a blast and brought back plenty of loot and memories. It was great meeting up with others and enjoying the food everywhere. I’ll probably write a post later about my experience (mainly Comiket), but there’s a lot of things to catch up on first. February post most likely won’t be on time as I haven’t even started on it.
