The Sunday Otome Gaming Mail: Issue #15

SundayMail15ZettaiKaikyuu.jpg

Greetings!

It has been a slow news week, though the websites of Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen ~Eden with roses and phantasm~ (PSV port) and Yunohana SpRING! Cherishing Time (fandisc) have opened for fans to take a look at.

I just want to use this opportunity to make a quick comment about E2 Gaming’s Taishou x Alice localisation announcement. Yes, I am very much aware of the drama and controversies it has caused, but I will not be including mentions of it in the actual Sunday Mail issues until there is undeniable proof that the localisation is legitimate.

Finally, I plan on making a special post about the E2 Gaming “drama” once the situation cools down, so those who didn’t catch wind of it from day 1 will be able to get up to speed.

See you again next Sunday!

 

 

+ Reporting period: 23/5/2016~29/5/2016 +

Release date announcements and delays:

 

Major official site updates:

 

In the 9~16/6/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 26/5/2016), Taishou x Alice ~all in one~ was reviewed. It scored 30 (8/8/7/7), netting them a Famitsuu Silver award. For those unfamiliar with the Famitsuu Cross Review scoring system, it involves a panel of 4 game critics reviewing the same game with each critic giving it a score from 0~10. This makes 40 the highest possible score, with awards of distinction being given to games earning: 30~31/40 = Famitsuu Silver, 32~34/40 = Famitsuu Gold and 35+/40 = Famitsuu Platinum.

 

To celebrate the upcoming release of their one year anniversary drama CD, Possession Magenta are running a Twitter campaign. Participants are required to follow @COMFORT_soft and Retweet this campaign Tweet to enter the draw to win a first press limited edition copy of the Possession Magenta game. The campaign will conclude on 12/6/2016.

[Spring 2016 → 25/11] Bara no Sensou -Sonnet of Seeds-

~ Staff blog: This week, MIO staff talk about war orphans (a topic that was first brought up in last week’s introduction of Tom and Noah). They discuss how there are also war orphans that became so due to the events after the war; not necessarily becoming parentless due to conflicts of war. After the war, the public became chaotic and an example MIO mentioned is how children were kidnapped and sold like commodities. Another thing they discussed was the post-war banditry. These bandits were essentially mercenaries that turned to a life of crime. Bandits will appear in Bara Sensou, as will bandits that romamed the seas, pirates. These two outlaw groups will be depicted as having their own beliefs and senses of justice- sounding like they won’t be “just bad”.

~ Story: The “World” and “Dictionary” sections have been opened. There are three words in the Dictionary at present: Owari no Kuni (a historic non-fictional location), Masou (kanji means “demon blue”) and Oboro (kanji means “faint; dim”). Owari no Kuni or the Owari Province was a province in Japan that existed where western Aichi Prefecture exists today. Masou is a shortened word used to address a clan of “devilish non-humans that possess blue eyes”. There are rumours amongst the citizens that Masou are Oboro. Oboro are strange non-humans that came to be referred to as such due to their “forms being so faint that one can’t tell if they  are present or not.” In the game’s era, not many people are able to see Oboro, so nobody seriously believes in their existence.
~ Character: Sprites of the characters in armour have been uploaded.
~ Music: Information about the BGM and OP/ED added. The BGM will be composed by Takada Masafumi (of Danganronpa fame). The OP, called “Wadachi” and ED, “ever since”, will both be performed by ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D.
