R18+ otome game brand Kalmia8 have launched a trial for their third project, Kami-sama nante Yondenai!.

 

There are two major news updates for Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 6: Gentou Rondo. First, Koei Tecmo have released a trial of the game, which is downloadable via PlayStation Store. The trial covers the entirety of the game’s first chapter.

Second, a number of DLC has been announced. The first set of DLC will be released on December 22nd, 2016 and will contain a selection of voiced in-game “Rescue Cards” featuring the main love interests of the game. They will help players advance in the game, among other unspecified perks. Furthermore, each character has four different “types” on offer: “Butterfly”, “Garçon”, “Kemonomimi” and “Bankara“. Players have the option of buying one “type” of one guy’s Rescue Card for 300 yen each or get a set of Rescue Cards containing all four types per guy for 800 yen.

The other DLC will be released on December 26th, 2016 and will be short stories featuring the main love interest of the game. Each one will be sold for 500 yen each or 3,600 yen for the bundle containing every single one. Additionally, extra Rescue Cards will be released on this day as well (with the same prices and four types) of the protagonist (as a shrine maiden), Man and Chiyo. A new set of “Glasses”-type Rescue Cards featuring all of the aforementioned characters will be sold for 300 yen each or 1,800 yen for a bundle with all of them. Finally, “Start-up Voices” can be purchased for 200 yen each or 1,200 yen for a bundle containing every one.

 

Winter Wolves will be running a Christmas sale that’ll last until the end of 2016. Games released prior to 2016 will receive a 50% discount. For all games released this year, they will be sold at 20% off during the sale period. Never Forget Me will be excluded from the Christmas sale as it has only been very recently released (November 2016).

 

In the 22/12/2016 issue of Famitsuu Weekly magazine’s Famitsuu Cross Review (released on 08/12/2016), the following games were reviewed:

NOTE: 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.
