Winds of Change

minori has bit the dust, citing a disconnect between what they aspire to make and the games that they’re now producing. While the news was surprising, I do personally feel that their recent games have not been of the same quality of their past ones. Sometimes you have to introduce elements in your games just for them to sell, and the market has somewhat changed in that regard. It doesn’t impact MangaGamer’s localization of their games, although the fate of the Supipara fundraiser is still up in the air. I honestly forgot about that ever existing. All the best to the staff and their future endeavours.

Recently announced titles include the following:

Alumi SoftWanko no Yomeiri ~Arata na Nihon no Shippo~ (June 28th)
Astronauts SiriusChaos Dominus
ensembleOtome ga Musubu Tsukiyo no Kirameki Fullmoon Days
Tinkle PositionOnii-chan, Asa Made Gyutte Shite! Yoru Made Motto Ecchi Shite! (June 28th)

Heliodor’s Ryuusei World Actor has been set for July 26th, while the following titles have been delayed:

Dai Sengo Muramasa – May 31st

It was awfully close, but Sol Press’s kickstarter for FAVORITE’s Irotoridori no Sekai was successful! Look forward to the hotcakes!

The Switch port for Summer Pockets is planned for June 20th. There’s also a visual fan book in the works. The Grisaia: Phantom Trigger art book vol.5 will be out on April 26th for ¥1500.

The first of three PCS figures is ready with Licorne’s 1/8 scale figure of Deremas‘s Kyoko Love Letter ver. out this November for ¥14,800. Other new figures available for pre-order include:

You might’ve noticed that Holyseal has been down. Their server has died and it doesn’t seem like they’re too motivated to keep it going. I’ve been mainly using Getchu and official sites to download trials.
