MangaGamer has now released their final two titles in their currently announced lineup: Sandwiched by my wife and her sister and The Queen and Princess as your rewards. They are expected be announcing some new properties at the upcoming Anime Expo 2009. It currently looks like they will be holding an 18+ panel entitled “The Future Trend of Bishojo Games” and setting up a booth in the exhibitor hall selling T-shirts, hug pillow cases and posters. The panel is currently scheduled for 9:30pm10:00pm on the third day, July 4, according to the Anime Expo convention schedule, but do note that both the time of the panel and what they’re offering at their booth are subject to change, as it is still half a month away.

UPDATE: According to some users, purchasing and trying to download The Queen and Princess as your rewards results in errors returned by the server, but the other game downloads fine. Currently, both games have been removed from their titles list, but seem to still be listed as a purchased game on users’ accounts.

UPDATE 2: MangaGamer has now issued an official statement regarding the games:

A crucial problem was found for the titles below that were released on June 15, and they were removed from the site.
- The Queen and Princess as your rewards
- Sandwiched by my wife and her sister
We sincerely apologize for the problem this may have caused.

There is a post by one of MangaGamer’s staff on the official MangaGamer forums suggesting the possibility that the titles will be pulled indefinitely and that refunds will be issued.

UPDATE 3: MangaGamer will be offering refunds for those who purchased these two games:

Thank you for using mangagamer.com.

The following titles that were released on 6/15 were released in an incomplete shape due to unexpected circumstaces.

- The Queen and Princess as your rewards
- Sandwiched by my wife and her sister

Because we are unable to provide a complete version right away, we will cancel all orders and send a refund.
If you’re one of the customers who purchased these games, please await for an email regarding this issue.
We will make an annoucement on our website when these games are ready to be officially released.

    You might want to update your post, but:
    Whenever someone tries to download ‘The Queen and Princess as your rewards’, a failed message appears.
    Sandwiched works though.

    The error message is as follows:
    ‘Download failed

    You cannot download this product now.’

    Thanks. I guess it wasn’t just an overloaded server after all.

    My guess is that the game wasn’t supposed to be released today but it was by accident.
    Or it wasn’t removed from the website when it should have been, due to the ‘Rape Game’ issue.

    both titles were just removed from the website.

    I purchased them both though and they are still listed in my account.

    I wonder if neither one were supposed to have been released today. What they need is a sales system that can handle preorders and adding items that do not have definite release dates. That would’ve removed most of the “delays”.

    Oh, we all know they have “issues” and we must be patient with them. I hope ‘The Queen and Princess as your rewards’ will be available for buying soon..
