Most of the April trials are now done. I was most intrigued with the mysterious in ISLAND, while I’ll probably play Dal Segno when it’s out. Sakuranomori†Dreamers was much better than Nostalgia, although I’ve yet to play the second trial. Is Madoka going to be a heroine?
YuzuSoft has announced this upcoming work, Senren＊Banka. It is planned for release on July 29th. The story is like a Japanese Arthurian tale, with the protagonist pulling a sword from a stone, and thus becoming the fiancé of the local miko. As always, there’s an imouto, but she’s a subcharacter, so I hope that she at least gets a short route.
Not only did they reveal the game, but also that the character songs for the four main heroines come out in April and May, starting with Yoshino on April 15th. The manga serialization begins in Comic Alive on April 27th, and there’s also a Yoshino dakimakura coming out on the same day as the game.

New figures available for pre-order include:
I tried my hand at the trial for Eushully’s upcoming title Saikaiou no Yubiwa, but I thought the automated battle system was a bit boring. PURELY×CATION didn’t offer much different from the past games in the series, with worse art in my opinion. I’m going through Wagahigh, which while decent, isn’t anything too special. I’ll probably just watch the anime.
For those that weren’t aware, Zen has updated the February post with his comments.
