Japanese Niche Games Deals & Discussion Thread 4.0

I saw on Twitter posting a line where someone mentions taking a dookie. Funny for all the wrong reasons. 

 

I'm wondering how the PC version is gonna look when they actually launch it. Too bad I never got a beta code. I take it you didn't either Drake? Man if only they let US play the beta two weeks beforehand! 

 

Oh and not sure if this got posted but Zwei The Ilvard Insurrection got pushed back to Fall 2017. Oddly they delayed the game one day before their release window closed similar to what NISA did with Ys VIII...but then again Xseed gives windows and then drops the release date two weeks before launch. Make of it what you will folks. 

 

Either way, more time for me to play Ys VII, VIII, Destiny 2, and...oh what the heck was I gonna play? Everything. What will I finish? The world may never know. 

He probably says the same thing in Japanese, but what word and context they used for it could be something else entirely. So I can't really comment on whether NISA was at fault there for that. It's not unusual for Japanese characters to be candid about their habits when they're from the countryside. It's one of the lesser issues the translation has anyways.

 

And no, I did not get into beta. Played a friends copy on the PS4. Durante has some playtime, but very little (less than an hour). I think it appeared on his Steam profile after their delay. Whether or not that means anything is anybodies guess. He's mostly playing Divinity: Original Sin 2.

 

 

Yes, Zwei was delayed. No real surprise there. There was less than two weeks before Summer ended, so they figured they ought to update it to fall. Seems like it's mostly done, just fixing all of the bugs and what not. They also put up a Localization Blog #3 about it as well.

That Soejima one looks amazing. Where did you buy it from and how much was it? A quick Google search showed that it was sold out from the usual suspects.

I bought the Japanese version because the English version is 100+ bucks, and there's relatively little text like BRW mentioned

 

I got it using ShoppingMallJapan as proxy for Yahoo JP auctions


Now for the picture of the day:

*sigh* I was hoping that they would have updated the Dragon Engine for Kiwami 2....Guess not. Everyone still has those expressionless faces during in-game cutscenes and ragdoll physics still looks present.

While watching the Hokuto ga Gotoku trailer, all I could think about was how fun that game must have been to record for the voice actors.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

Ahhh cool, thanks for the info. I saw a couple on eBay for 40ish, so I wasn't sure if those were legitimate. I'll look into it some more, thanks again.

Never been worried about Muv Luv getting here, since they have been giving consistent updates every so often and the team seems to be actually passionate about the everything.

It's just Sekai Project giving localization of VNs to the Vita a bad name. They've promised a lot, shown nothing for it and don't keep anybody updated on what the hell they're actually doing. They probably have some unpaid intern the only person working on getting the Vita versions done, if any at all.

Bullet Girls Phantasia confirmed for Asian-English release:

 

Faaaantastic. Now give me omega labyrinth z and I would have all the import games I want.

Guess I'll be getting the vita version. Hope it doesn't get gimped too hard. Looks like a musou so probably just fewer enemies on screen and lower framerate like Extella.

The first two were comparable to the Senran Kagura games, so essentially ecchi musou.

 

I want OMZ as well, but ever since the Heavy-Arm incident I'm very doubtful it'll get any English support. I have a long list of games I'd like to see come over, but the only one that looks like it's still a possibility is Coven and the Labyrinth of Refrain because of the PS4 "Plus" version.

It's a matter of time for Coven. Seems like an obvious choice for NISA.

Oh no, I understand completely when it comes to issues with Sekai Project. It just seemed there were some who were worried the issues would befall Muv Luv, because as you mentioned when it comes to VNs, Sekai's name has tainted the pool.

Got my shipping notice for PBS tooo!

I guess these are all the characters who are going to get new voice overs to some of their lines for the PC port of Cold Steel II?

Sad that I don't see Becky on that list. Good that we'll see Fast Arts Man #2 voiced. More Duvalie is absolutely fucking awesome though. She was a riot.

 

And seeing of Cold Steel III just brings up so many questions I don't really want answered, ever. Guess I'll need to start avoiding Trails threads for a while since the game releases in Japan next week. Now for the long, long wait.

If you're referring to the twitter pic, some of the voices may also be for Cold Steel I. They couldn't get everybody they wanted in prior to release, so some got shoved to when they were going to do the recordings for Cold Steel II PC.

 

The second pic, I have no words.

i hope this new one is musuo style because the first one had very few enemies at once. about 4 or 5 most but usually only 2 at a time.

still waiting for owz in English too, along with the moe chronicles ones.

Hmm I wonder if the girls are going to get shirtless options :P  It's only fair ;)  Also who's the silver haired guy with the pony tail?  Is that a new character?

I haven't seen it in any of the articles posted, but Atelier Lydie & Suelle has been confirmed to be coming to PC/Steam like the past two games. Just need to hope Koei Tecmo does a better job, but anybody who has watched their PC ports over the years know that isn't going to happen.

 

I don't remember if it was originally announced to include PC or not. Usually they aren't.

No it wasn't but it was kind of a given seeing as we're getting blue reflection soon and nights of azure. I'm glad gust(kt) is embracing the pc market. Planning to buy the bundle and season pass for blue reflection on pc.

Ooh they have dual attacks. Which we know but it looks cooler than I thought. I wonder if everyone will have a unique pair attack. Also I don't get what the criteria is for Suelle to perform the extra attacks. She seems to be activating it every time but Sophie didn't support attack once. Nevermind, seems sophie support attacks when you use items I guess? Still not sure but it seems like each of them has a different requirement. Lydie always heals when you attack or take damage.
