Marmalade is making a sequel PRIMAL×HEARTS2, due out on August 28th. It takes place 6 years after the original, with the same dual student councils setting, but the cast will be totally new. The protagonist is subchara Michi’s little brother.
Other new titles announced this week include:
Possibly inspired by key and minori, WHITESOFT has turned to crowdfunding site Shooting Star to raise money for a package version of their upcoming Samoto Fuuri-only fandisc Nekonade Distortion Renai Jishou no Dead End, which comes out on May 29th. They’ve already passed their target within a week, so it appears to be quite a success. Will we see more of such projects in the future?
Release dates have been announced for the following:
Insync’s Mousou Complete! has been delayed once more to May 29th.
Kara no Shoujo‘s Touko was voted as #1 in Innocent Grey’s 10th anniversary chara poll. This comes as expected from the main heroine of their most well-known title.
Grisaia spinoff Idol Mahou Shoujo Chiruchiru☆Michiru is coming to the PSV! It’s planned for a June 25th release. There’s also a sequel GAL☆GUN Double Peace set for this summer for the PSV and PS4. Keep shooting for love!
The visual fan book for Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia will be on shelves on April 24th.
The following figures were announced this week:
I played a trio of RPG trials this week: Evenicle, Kami no Rhapsody and Kagura Kaentan. Evenicle was the most attractive to me out of them. It had plenty of comedy and ecchi, wasn’t hard to learn the system, and made me want to play the full game. I’d easily rank it as one of my top picks for the month.
There’s still a week till #hikaributts, so I’m gonna waste some time playing KamiEx while trying to recover from this awful cold.
ensemble’s Otome ga Kanaderu Koi no Aria ~Kimi ni Sasageru Encore~ is planned for June 26th. Chara poll winner Kei will get a route in this fandisc. They’ve also open got a PV up.
Liar-soft has also revealed the name of their next title: Fairy Tale Requiem. The website opens next week.
Release dates have been set for the following:
The chara poll for Anekouji Naoko to Giniro no Shinigami is underway and will end on March 19th. Vote for the sheep or the hamster!
The rest of the characters in Shin Koihime†Eiyuutan have been revealed. The only new characters are Shanfu and Karin’s cousin, Eika.
You have until May 31st to preorder the dakimakura of Koisex‘s Kotone.
There’s still another two weeks until #hikaributts, so I’m getting a head start on April trials after finishing Tearstilla, which had nice characters, although neither the story nor character development was deep at all. First up is Chrono Clock and I’m already smitten by ultra-shy kouhai Miu >w<
It’s also White Day tomorrow, so there’s plenty of voice clips and wallpapers available.
There’ll be more of Kotone and Shiho in PeasSoft’s Koisuru Shimai no Sextet PLUS. It is scheduled for July 31st with additional ecchi content for the most popular twins. Sister sex! Sister sex!
PENDULUM has been delayed once again, this time to an unspecified date this spring. The following titles have been also been delayed:
Kogado Studio’s Hakuisei Aijou Izonshou for the PSV has been set for April 30th.
Aquamarine’s 1/7 scale figure of Fate/Apocrypha‘s Saber of “Red” -Mordred- will ship in May for ￥11,000.
I’ve spent the past couple days going through a huge backlog of March trials. Anekouji Naoko to Giniro no Shinigami felt almost like Minakoi with its comedy and pacing, while Low-Rise!!! was entertaining with lots of mini systems. I didn’t think I’d enjoy Shirogane×Spirits!, but it’s not too bad. The game that probably went up my personal rankings the most would be Panical Confusion. All the heroines are cute and lucky sukebe moments. Gotta love magic!
The results for Getchu’s bishoujo game awards 2014 are in, and the top 3 are Tsuki ni Yorisou Otome no Sahou 2, Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm and Ano Harewataru Sora Yori Takaku! Tsuriotsu2 also took best scenario, while Luna was the top character for the third year running. My pick Anzu ended up finishing 9th. Sakigake⇛Generation! won another award for best graphics for Clochette after Pricolle last year. Other winners are: Hoshiori Yume Mirai (music), Tenbin no La DEA. (system), AstralAir no Shiroki Towa (OP) and Koinaka (ero). Congrats to all the winners!
EffordomSoft may have bit the dust, but that hasn’t stopped the staff at AkabeiSoft3 to make a similar game: Seikishi Melty☆Lovers. I guess you can’t do any worse than Juukishi. Other titles announced this week include:
ALcot – LOVEREC.
AXL – Ayakashi Contract (May 29th)
Bug System – Sukui no Serenade
Lass – Mayoeru Futari to Sekai no Subete LOVE HEAVEN 300% (May 29th)
Prometheus – Koi to Mahou to Kanrinin (May 29th)
Triangle – Sacred Lineage
Chien’s Yakusoku Love Harem has been scheduled for July 24th.
The Chrono Clock chara poll runs until March 25th. I’ll be voting for Miu ^^
The following figures are available for preorder:
Fellow eroge reviewer Marebito-san is running the Second Eroge Reviewer Ranking until March 20th. It polls seasoned eroge bloggers and reviewers for their favourite games (not necessarily the ones they would recommend to others). It was last held in 2011 and is now also open to foreign sites. If you’re actively blogging or on review sites for at least a year, have played over 40 titles while reviewing at least 10 of them, and have been in the genre for over 2 years, then let Marebito-san know of your eligibility. I’ve already put in my top 3 and I can’t wait to see the results!
Splitting my time between playing Tearstilla and working on the March post (along with playing trials). Whirlpool’s games are pretty much fluff. I really liked the trial for Hanasaki, so I can’t wait for the full release in a month!
Release dates have been set for the following titles:
A pair of illustration collections are coming out in March. Whirlpool artist Tenmaso’s “Tenbatsu” comes out on March 26th, followed by “Illuchination”, containing Lucie’s works at Studio Ryokucha, which will be on shelves March 30th. Both are priced at ￥2800.
The third volume of SystemSoft Alpha & unicorn-a’s Vocal Collection hits the shelves on March 27th. It’ll feature a dozen OP and ED songs from their releases.
DragonToy has a 1/6 scale castoff figure of Fault!!‘s Ai coming out this June for ￥13,800.
You can order a dakimakura of Otokana‘s Kanade for ￥10,800. It comes with a soine voice drama!
Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia ended up being a decent story about facing and overcoming one’s troubles and traumas, even if all the horror elements and shock factors were unnecessary. Miu is so devoted to her oniichan!
The user-voted winner of the Moe Game Award 2014 is… sprite’s Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm! Chuable Soft’s Ano Harewataru Sora Yori Takaku and SILKY’S PLUS Wasabi’s Nanairo Reincarnation round out the top 3. The top 40 titles have been nominated for the awards, to be announced in April.
Nounai Kanojo’s Namaiki! has been delayed to May 29th, while release dates have been set for the following:
The favourite unit in VenusBlood -HYPNO- is Shinigami-chan! There’s nothing planned in terms of goods for her.
There will be a 4-disc D.C. Super Best album coming out on May 13th, featuring all your favourite songs from the D.C. series! The Amakano soundtrack will be released on April 24th. It contains a full versions of the OP and ED, along with 14 BGMs.
The visual fan book for Hoshiori will be on shelves on April 25th.
After much delay, I’ve finished Nekopara Vol.1! Chocola and Vanilla are both great, but I’ve grown to really love Vanilla! I’m so glad I’m a horny pastry puffer with catpanions! I can’t wait till the next volume! Now it’s on to the much darker Natsu no Iro no Nostalgia…
ωstar’s Bishoujo Mangekyou Ch3 has been delayed once more to March 27th.
Zannen na Ore-tachi no Seishun Jijou‘s complete sound album will be released on February 27th for ￥2500, while the PRETTY×CATION2 OST comes out a few days before the game’s release on April 22nd, priced at ￥3200.
5pb. has announced a combined port for LOVELY×CATION1&2, scheduled for May 21st.
There’s another mobage coming out this spring called Hatsukoi no Uta and it features a promising cast of characters. At least the system isn’t just another card battle game. It’ll be available for both the iOS and Android.
Cospatio has a renewal version of Feena’s dress from Yoake. It won’t cost you a fortune – only ￥82,080.
I really should get back to playing eroge. Been busy doing other stuff for the past month, so there’s a backlog starting to build up (Nekopara, Nostalgia, some trials). Chocola and Vanilla are waiting for me!
