Announcements from Anime Weekend Atlanta 2016


With our panel at Anime Weekend Atlanta over, let’s recap our announcements


Let’s GO GO to Nippon for another exciting adventure in Go Go Nippon 2016! In addition to UI tweaks to add a wallet display and showcase which girl provides the tour, this brand new expansion also adds six new locations to explore and even more event CG with Makoto and Akira!

Explore Tokyo Station, Ueno, Rikugi-en, Nakano, Shibamata, and Yanaka together with Makoto and Akira! You can even enjoy a new getaway together with one of them at a park or a manga cafe! You’ll also get to see your favorite girl in a brand new outfit and watch fireworks together!

Our next announcement isn’t even a visual novel, it’s MangaGamer’s first fighting game–Golden Fantasia CROSS–a fighting game based on our very own Umineko When They Cry!

Drawing from the highly-acclaimed visual novel, this 2D tag-team fighting game features 19 different characters from the series that can be paired to create a wide variety of different match-ups! Combine meta world abilities and fighting styles between partners to create your best tag-team for crushing the competition! Change-up your tag-outs to control the flow the battle–whether pressing an attack, halting a rushdown, escaping from potential stun or guard break, or to recover chip damage–timing your tag is an important key to victory!

Featuring both story mode and multiplayer, competitive play, Golden Fantasia CROSS will be coming to both MangaGamer and Steam!


We’re also excited to announce The Stargazers, from the English developers Studio Lupiesoft, known for their work on The Menagerie and Toko: The Reject Demon! What would it be like to explore deep space? To chart the unknown landscape of the outer rim, assessing new planets for their potential as colonies? What wonders and excitement might await?

Inspired by pulp sci-fi, The Stargazers follows Temperance as she joins the Shooting Star to explore and chart the galaxy with its crew. Join these girls as she discover new wonders of space, rescue lost ships, fight to survive against notorious villains, and more! Of course, sometimes the outer reaches of space might get lonely, but the girls have each other for that.

The all-ages version of The Stargazers will be available on Steam this November, but fans can pre-order the complete, adult version on right now and get 10% off!

We’ll also be continuing our relationship with Studio Lupiesoft to bring out a DLC expansion for The Menagerie! This new DLC adds a brand new route to the story featuring two new heroines: Pippistrelli and Omara. Both have been members of the Menagerie for a long time, with Pippi’s ability to fly offering her unique means to come and go from the collection of girls throughout her life. When she returns this time, she finds Omara, the elf who helped care for Pippi, in mourning over the death of her older sister.

  1. I will like to buy Menagerie but without voices I pass. Same with Let’s GO GO to Nippon. Golden Fantasia yeah PS4 version? PC is a potato.


  3. My PC is a normal laptop. It going to melt before even playing it.

  4. Did these really need announcements?
    They are all pretty low quality, and could have just been mentioned on the mainpage like “Busty Maid: Creampie Heaven!”.

    • The Umineko fighter was a big enough announcement to warrant a con, I think. regardless of how good it is, MG licensing a doujin game is big news.

      Busty Maid is third party, which is why they announced it without much fanfare.

      The Lupiesoft announcement was surprising, but I guess Menagerie sold well.

  5. GGN getting more updates is always nice. Although now I wonder whether it will ever be considered complete again. 😀 It would still be nice to have a hard copy for it again at some point; I do have the original as hard copy as well.

  6. IS Goden Fantasy gonna have balance channges? what are the diference bettween the original game and the localizated one? (beside idiom)

  7. I am a bit confused with the Go Go Nippon 2016. Hasn’t that been out for at least a year now?

  8. UMM I am surprise by Stargazers. I was looking a the page on the site and is adult version…. I was under the impression it was all ages version that will be available.

  9. Thanks for coming to AWA, it was good to see you! The people of Atlanta would also like to know when MYTH is set for release? I feel like y’all licensed it a zillion years ago!

  10. Thanks so much for the Umineko fighting game!! i cant wait to this! <3 im waiting for the chiru arcs too hehe =)

  11. Was there at the con and my first ever. Sadly wasn’t able to attend the panel because I went with a party of three and one was a minor and it was that person’s first experience seeing all these images of Japan’s otaku subculture and all the cosplay. It was late, the person was exhausted and didn’t want to take chances with the announcements(said person is female) so I left after our autographs/photos with GARNIDELIA(the greatest moment). Had a little bit of fun talking with one of the girls at the booth though. We agreed upon Makoto being the best girl of GGN lol. Sorry Akira fans I like her too but not as much as Makoto.

    Now time to enjoy EROGE and Beat Blades Haruka and the dakimakura I bought lol.

    • Hi there, Moetaku!

      I’m the one you talked to at AWA. Thanks for stopping by our booth and picking up some awesome goodies. I hope you’re able to attend a MangaGamer panel in the future! 🙂 They are a lot of fun!

  12. Are you going to port and translate over room no.9? It’s parade’s new game and it looks amazing.

  13. Is there any chance for a ranked queue system for the Umineko game?
    It has built in MMR point system but only manual matchmaking which is such a waste.
