In fall 2010, Aksys Games had two surveys asking fans what they'd want from potential localizations of otome games. Every game mentioned in their survey was a console game that had been created by Idea Factory.

There hasn't been much news since. In the last few days, Siliconera has been talking with the company. And now there's two articles in which people from Aksys don't say very much, other than "Wait until our panel at Anime Expo 2011." The first article with this statement was http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/18...me-game-survey , and they said it again in http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/21...choosing-games .

Is this good news or bad news? It's very vague -- could be either. Publishing physical copies of console games for a niche market is very risky. *If* Aksys chooses to localize any of IF's games, then I suspect it will only be through a pay-to-download service.

Mangagamers live stream is on

I'll edit in anything worth noting.

Quote:
you can say the recent slow release of managagamer is mostly because of the quake

» sales in japan has gone down too
Quote:
no plan to including our mascot in a game at the moment
Quote:
it will probably take a while for us to fully recover from the quake
Quote:
there is the cost and language barrier for japanese developers to start thinking about overseas
and things are hectic at the moment within japan,
Quote:
there are some developers who are interested, but it all depends on the demand and what they consider a success in oversea sales
we need to make a good basis for business for that, for us to suceed in such circumstance
Quote:
» reminder. mangagamer is still in the red...
Quote:
worst selling game is a secret =P
Quote:
my favorite heroine in a bishojo game is Multi from To Heart
As for the possibility of Higurashi Rei:
Quote:
if there is a high demand for higurashi rei, yes
Dengeki:
Quote:
we actually have dengeki stryker and gogojapan with the oversea fans in mind
Age:
Quote:
negotiation with age is going steadily
As for the company 'Mink'
Quote:
sorry i don't have much connection with mink
Who he does have connections with:
Quote:
i only know developers that started in the early 2000s
Comic section:
Quote:
the comic section of mangagamer should be opening soon

im personally not in charge of it, but we are planning that and the video(anime) section

it should be open in maybe a month or so?
Anime expo companies:

Quote:
there is a possibility that companies like Clochette will release game for us, but

we are just taking guest companies to AX to show them how the American market is like

so it's like a future investment to show them around and get them interested
D.C.P.C

Quote:
If there is a high demand for DCPC, we can... but at the moment not really

it is costly for us to localize one title and if it fails, it hurts us bad...
Shin Koihime Musou

Quote:
We don't have a plan to release Shin Koihime Musou at the moment, but since the sales was good, im sure we'll start talking about it soon or later
Voice Issue:

Quote:
about the voice acting issue: since the voice actor agency are hard headed, they demand a lot and thus there are some games without voices
BL Titles:

Quote:
We don't have any plans for BL titles because i don't really know how well it will sell...
Gameplay games:

Quote:
>zalas about games with gameplay, it is difficult because porting it is a lot of work, and the game company needs to be really interested and has to help us
Go! Go! Nippon:

Quote:
we are planning to update it with patches, maybe $5 a patch?

try to think of it as a DLC pack for X-box or the likes
Overdrive:

Quote:
yes OVERDRIVE is planning to make music related game in the future for sure
Ef:

Quote:
about ef> minori told me we should have something to look at soon
Hard copies:

Quote:
we are negotating about future hard copies, but idealy would like to release all our games in package form

» the most difficult thing is though, is how we are going to sell it

School Days US website updated slightly

http://schooldays.us/

It now says 2012 (instead of 2011) and the page name is now oddly named 'School Days Fluid'

New JAST games Updates:
http://www.jastusa.com/pre-ax-roundu...e-of-the-games

Yukkuri: ships next week (26th according to twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/jastusa/status/84199792569356288 )

President: Late July - Early August, they're just fixing 2 bugs and it'll be ready to go. (Language Local and Wordwrap)

Aselia: End of summer release. All that remains is the Installer, Package and Manual.

SDHQ: release date revised to the first half of 2012. Translation is over 50% complete and Episode 0 is currently in testing/bug fixing.

Yumina: All that remains are the images. Website scheduled for July. Release planned by the end of the year.

Blaze: After the quake, TOP has dissolved. Which is why its taken so long. Translation has finished and they're using 'Alternative Assistance' to help them with what TOP would be doing.

Next Monday they'll reveal the new licenses.

http://mangagamer.blackss.org/viewto...&t=1045#p10034
Mangagamer has translated about 52% of DEARDROPS
Common Route is complete
Riho's route is in progress

They've already started working on Dengeki Stryker too apparently and we might get Dengeki Stryker before we get DEARDROPS.

http://mangagamer.blackss.org/viewto...tart=10#p10114
The order they're doing them in is apparently Common->Riho->Kanade->Yayoi->Rimu

It's not really leeching when they are being paid...? [I assume]
Anyways, official announcement should be tomorrow.
