This month we’re out enjoying Katsucon, but we’ve also got lots of new announcements for you from our panel!
First up on our list of new announcements is of our next Limited Edition hard-copy: OtoBoku! The limited edition will come with the game, a special story-book, “Tsunderella”, fully illustrated in color by Yoda, and an extras disc full of bonus items such as wallpapers, Obokusama production materials, and more. Production is already underway, so you can expect to see this on sale soon!
Next up, we’re proud to announce
Cum on! Bukkake Ranch! ~Rear Elementals Into Wet, Horny Girls!~ Cum on down to the peaceful Bukkake Ranch, a good old farm out of the way from all the commotion and hubbub of the town, a place where you can relax and enjoy a quiet life with your four elementals: the salamander girl, Sara, the slime girl, Myil, the kobold, Korin, and the harpy, Papy. Life is good on the farm. That is, until the Demon Queen shows up your front lawn, demanding you create the legendary Slut’s Stone before she decides to wipe your farm off the map. Well, shucks, so much for that. Time to get to work on gathering materials, forging items, and rolling in the hay with your girls!
That’s not all! We’re also proud to announce Throb! The Greatest Inventions of the Sexy Era! ~Second Science Club–A Secret Society of Love, Rage, and Sorrow~
In this new game from Softhouse Seal, you’ll get to enjoy a mad scientist, his ditzy sidekick, and the comedic antics that ensue with the myriad of sexy inventions at his disposal. Who knows what laws of physics will be broken by their wild inventions in this sexy comedy!
And last but not least, we’re proud to announce Chou Dengeki Stryker! This upgraded version of the hot, super-hero action story, Dengeki Stryker, adds three brand new routes for you to enjoy (Rin, Hilko, and a brand new surprise!) This new version also features new animation by Watanabe Shinichiro, lots of new, passionate songs, and a complete upgrade to the performance in all the action scenes using lots of new sprites, new cuts, and new special effects! Check out the difference below:
Those who have already purchased Dengeki Stryker will be able to purchase an upgrade patch at a reduced price.
Otoboku hard copy? a Limited one? Now I’m hard too.
Now, need a hard copy of Chou <3
ah, Softhouse-Seal and their super long titles.
Ha! That’s nothing compared to the title length of Norn’s titles:
I think we can safely assume that just about every B-list eroge will have a ridiculously long title.
Please no more stupid nukige…
But I buy only nukiges 🙁
Ye, no need more nukige.
It wasn’t very long since I’ve started playing visual novels and therefore I’m wondering about a couple of things:
Is it normal for companies to release a patch like “Chou Dengeki Stryker”?
As far as I understand it the norm are fandiscs. But what are fandiscs exactly? Are they stand alone games or do they “integrate” with the main game? I guess my question is if they are rather like video game expansions or like movie sequels/prequels.
depends on the company, Circus love both (look at Da Capo: Plus Communication and all DCIII versions)
fandisk can be both, standalone new routes like Edelweiss: Eiden Fantasia) or something different (like all the Da Capo fandisks)
Well, it’s nice to get confirmation that Chou Dengeki Stryker gets released, though the fact that it isn’t posted in the coming soon section yet makes me worry about WHEN it will be released.
The other releases were pretty much already known and are just official now. Still looking mostly forward to release dates of Harukoi Otome and Tick! Tack! (Ai is just sooo gorgeous…)
I didn’t buy hard copies yet, but I’m thinking about it to buff my favourites Koihime, Shuffle, Da Capo 2, Otoboku, Edelweiss and Kira Kira a bit. BTW, do they also require activation or are they DRM free?
The hard copies are all DRM free so require no activation or online connection and have unlimited installs.Da Capo 2 icludes a nice art book.
I think Otoboku will be the same when released in its hard copy form and require no activation online/code or other DRM.
I hope MangaGamer start doing more hard copy version of other games like the upcoming Chou Dengeki Stryker.
Ah, thanks! That’s good to know. I don’t mind the activation for my online copies, but I prefer the hard copies to be DRM free.
Otoboku hard copy… *throws money at MangaGamer* Take it, take it all!
these softhouse seal games are worthless, nothing interesting
Count on me getting Otoboku’s hard copy whenever it’s announced. Hopefully the fact that we’re getting a hard copy with this much stuff means the original release sold well enough that Caramel Box will give us more from their library, especially Otoboku 2.
Also, really looking forward to Chou Dengeki Stryker with all the new stuff that’s going to be in it
Please more mindless NUKIGE!!!! I LOVE them!!
Otoboku’s LE sounds really nice especially the extra disc.
Bukkake Ranch sounds extremely intriguing.
I’m exite and glad that u got “Shou Dengeki Stryker”
Now .. get “D2B Vs. Deardrops” too pls XD
That YouTube video-download link uses java. You do realize that having Java turned on in the browser is very much a security risk, right?
I highly recommend using this URL instead:
And linking to unknown 3rd party software just for MP3 conversion and an “advanced video download” seem a bit on the shady side. Keepvid will handle videos from a multitude of formats just fine. On the audio side, Foobar2000 & Audacity, both very popular and well-known free audio programs (Audacity is open source), can convert from a multitude of video formats (MKV, MP4, MPG, etc) to a multitude of audio formats (WAV, MP3, FLAC, OGG, etc) Alternatively, for just basic MP4 to audio conversion, fre:ac does this perfectly, and is free and is open source
Did I mention that most of what I listed above is multi-platform as well? Keepvid being a website obviously is, but Audacity even runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. On the Windows side however, all three programs – Foobar2000, Audacity, and fre:ac all have portable versions that can even run from a flash drive on any Windows PC.
Just an FYI, my career IRL job is essentially “computer geek”, so this kind of crap won’t be able to get past me. 😛
More Endoh goodness, Hilko route, but best of all, a really good reason to get my blood boiling again. Can’t wait to wear the Stryker system again.
Oh. Chou dengeki. Cool. I have been waiting for it. xD…and i’ll be still waiting untul you relase it. Is a really nice thing to know that we’ll be able to buy it cheaper.
Tsunderella…I’m not interested at otoboku, but i’m a tsundere fan so i may buy the limited edition only for that xD.
Cum on! Bukkake Ranch” remmeber me one game with all tha stuff about alchemy, demnos and undines. I think i’ll buy it.
I didn’t expected The Greatest Inventions of the Sexy Era! but seems good enought. At least i like the characters o i’ll be waiting for it.
Any news on the Innocent Grey talks you announced last month? I would love to see more of their games translated!
Yeah, MangaGamer said on their twitter feed that they would talk with Innocent Grey this month.
Has this already happened?
“Talk with…” in Japan usually means, ‘we’re going drinking at some point in the near future, if someone is sober enough to record video, we’ll tell you what was discussed…’
IG postponed our appointment till April. orz
Am I missing something or was Otoboku Limited Edition released after the regular edition without any word that a Limited Edition was going to be released in the future?
I kind of feel cheated because I would have definitely waited for the Limited Edition and bought it if I had knew. Is there anything that can be done or is my only option is to buy the whole game again? What about an upgrade option for those who have already purchased the game?
If there is any advice that I can get to prepare myself for future Manga Gamer releases of limited editions, please do share them. It is obviously not like the releases I have seen for other eroge or even video games.
I really do appreciate all the work you guys to in getting the licenses and translating the games!
“What about an upgrade option for those who have already purchased the game?”
– nope, Kouryuu said that it was quite diffucult to do since there are (at least) 3 entities involved.
For a future LE, you never know. The only “hint” (can’t find it, but in a commentary on the blog) we got was on the announcement of otoboku, Kouryuu (or evo, never sure) said that a HC may happened.
Thanks for the info minirop.
I guess I’ll have to carefully read the blog posts and comments… Or maybe I should just not make any purchases until after announcements are made at cons.
Chou Dengeki Stryker! is so good but where’s SHUFFLE! Essence+ and Da Capo I & II Plus Communication??????
In your dreams, lol
I also want them Y^Y
Do not forget about shin koihime!
This one is one of our dreams to!
Rin, Hilko and a brand new surpise…? *gasp!* c-could it be!? the Texas ninja gets a route!?
New character, not Jack.
Ah, how unfortunate, but if that is how it is…
Been waiting/hoping for the Chou announcement!!! Can’t wait! 😀
Now if only we could get some hard copys of Dengeki/Chou 😉
With regards to Chou Dengiki Stryker… I’ve heard in the original version there’s 2 routes and a true route. How does the true route work in the newer version? Is it a different ending now? Do you have to go through all five of the routes to get the true ending?
A little light would be grand because I’m not sure which to shell out for. :S
Shin Koihime Musou please… thanks.
i really hope they have a happyer ending in chou dengiki stryker then the oringal true end in dengiki stryker
Please, open preorder for “Seeeki! Bukkake Bokujou”, don’t wanna miss this one.
More nukiges! Yay!
Still hoping to see eden* get licensed some day, although I know it’s probably a vain hope.
