Excellent, I've been looking forward to this!
This new release of The Song of Saya includes a major technical update that improves on the fidelity of the visual novel experience. It runs on a new engine that, among other things, adds enhanced resolution options for the game's visuals. To take advantage of this, all the illustrations for the game were re-scanned to more than double the resolution found in the original release. The text has been polished by the original translator as well, making the already great localization even better.
The few details they drop sound really interesting, so I really hope we get an English translation at some point. More music by Dai and xaki is also nice.Entergram and 07th Expansion announced Gensou Rougoku no Kaleidoscope, or Kaleidoscope of Phantasm Prison. It’s a horror visual novel for PS4, PS Vita and Nintendo Switch. Gensou Rougoku no Kaleidoscope features a scenario by Ryukishi07, character designs by Itaru Hinoue, and music by Dai and xaki. The game will launch this winter in Japan.
Gensou Rougoku no Kaleidoscope is described by Entergram as a “girls mental suspense” game. Ryukishi07 commented on the game, asking if we’re ready to plunge into the “bottomless”, “darkest” parts of his writing. He mentioned Itaru Hinoue’s designs have a feeling of cuteness and innocence you rarely find in other designs. He also said the story is about a group of four close friends who will get everything ruthlessly stolen from them. Ryukishi07 also compared Gensou Rougoku no Kaleidoscope to the mix of joy and sadness one would get when destroying a tower of blocks they spend so much time piling up.
The anime is supposedly really terrible as far as I know.Do you need to play or watch Chaos;Head before playing Chaos;Child? Chaos;Head VN doesn't have English localization from what I'm seeing but there is an anime.
The games are about as connected as Steins;Gate is with Chaos;Child.
I have played C;C without C;H and I had no issues following the story at all, towards the end you get some C;H references which spoils some stuff as Knurek pointed out but whatever.
That seems very likely.
I would expect them to delay other titles as well
They probably aren't, JAST has now all the VN publishers (even those with their own store) except from Mangagamer, so unless it's a do or die I don't see that happening.I suspect that MangaGamer isn't interested in boosting their direct competitors.
They are also missing FAKKU, who has published a few nukige and have more on the way, but I expect that FAKKU is staying away from other stores for the same reason as MangaGamer.They probably aren't, JAST has now all the VN publishers (even those with their own store) except from Mangagamer, so unless it's a do or die I don't see that happening.
They've been without a payment process for about 40 days, but yeah, it's a good question how long they can keep going like this:I wonder how long they can keep going in the current situation though, been months now? I doubt everyone who would be interested in purchasing games is going through their support and then arranging a paypal transaction, most probably can't be bothered.
damn felt much longerThey've been without a payment process for about 40 days
I'm the same but mostly because any VN publisher could go under in the blink of an eye, while Steam is going to outlive them all.I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm certainly not bothering with their support while they try to sort this out.
Their website is kind of crappy, so I try to purchase their stuff off Steam whenever possible.
Saya has 3 endings in total.Does Song of Saya only have one ending?
I see it's quite short for a VN? That's actually quite a good thing imo! Not everything needs to be 50+ hours =/
I'm looking forward to your impressions! I enjoyed it so much it earned a permanent spot on my Steam profile page, a spot normally reserved for Trails games.
Damn that's high praise.I'm looking forward to your impressions! I enjoyed it so much it earned a permanent spot on my Steam profile page, a spot normally reserved for Trails games.
I want to re-read it again, maybe in the summer, I feel like it's a perfect summer read for me.
BioDio said:Plan was to release all patches at the same time, but since we noticed there would be a delay, we decided to release the game on time and just solve the patches issues in due time.
The Steam release is also a bit cheaper than the JAST USA release, but personally I am not a fan of that model.Paying for a patch??
