FULL DISCLOSURE: I am one of the developers of Kokorogawari.
Precatio have been continuing their Kokorogawari Twitter campaigning, with last week’s ones ending up in the reveal of three supporting characters that are now available to check out on their official blog. The most recently revealed character is Maeda Chiharu, who is also the subject of their latest campaign. Upon 50 Retweets of the Maeda Chiharu Tweet, they have implied that there’d be a nice surprise! Finally, they have also posted on Lemmasoft Forums.

 

In the 30/6/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 16/6/2016), the PlayStation Vita port of Zettai Kaikyuu Gakuen ~Eden with roses and phantasm~ was reviewed. It scored 33 (8/8/8/9), earning them a Famitsuu Gold 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.

 

The seiyuu cast of Petit Reve’s third title Crank In has been revealed. The protagonist will also be voiced:
