  • MangaGamer pulls Da Capo for bug fix

    December 26th, 2008, by zalas in Translation

    According to MangaGamer’s website, they have discovered a bug in the release and is halting distribution of this product temporarily, with a rerelease date of January 20, 2009. It looks like customers who have bought the game can still download it, but it is no longer available to new customers.

    UPDATE: According to a post on MangaGamer’s forums, Da Capo wasn’t supposed to be released on Christmas and was supposed to undergo a final quality check. Supposedly, much of MangaGamer is run by volunteers from the Japanese game companies, who have been very busy preparing for Comiket and may have forgotten to update the date before the website automatically enabled Da Capo for sales.

    According to MangaGamer’s website, releases for all their upcoming games have been pushed back. Of note, Da Capo has been pushed back to mid-October and Suika has been pushed back to the beginning of December. Possible reasons for these delays may lie in their interest in producing a better script and their solicitation of proofreaders. However, they may simply be swamped with too much work at the moment.
