  • MangaGamer introduces permanent price cuts

    December 7th, 2010, by zalas in Translation

    According to a post on the official blog, MangaGamer is permanently cutting prices on almost all their titles. This ranges from dropping Suika A.S+’s price by half to slight adjustments to their 19.95 euro titles. Higurashi has been reduced to 24.95 euros and each of the answer arcs have been reduced to 9.95. Even the upcoming Koihime Musou has had its price cut by a little, although the post claims that will have no effect on the number of sales needed for voices to be added back in. Cosplay Alien, Da Capo Innocent Finale and Edelweiss were the only ones not cut, the former two being at 19.95 euros and the latter at 24.95. Lastly, the title picture for the post is a screenshot from Harem Party, the latest game published through a subbrand of NEXTON called Tactics.

    UPDATE: According to an interview posted on Siliconera, the reasoning behind the price drops was so that fans’ complaints could be addressed and sales numbers could be bolstered to attract more companies interested in distributing English releases with MangaGamer.

  • MangaGamer posts updates

    November 24th, 2010, by zalas in Translation

    MangaGamer posted an update on their progress with their current game pipeline. Da Capo Innocent Finale is supposed to be out by “around the end of this month”, as finishing touches are currently being applied to it. It was claimed that D.C.I.F. would be the first game to have undergone that much testing and revision and should be a “complete farewell to the older days of Engrishy releases.” MangaGamer appears to also be pushing for Da Capo II to be released by Christmas, along with “a few bits of good news.” They had also received revised scripts for ef from No Name Losers, and their editor has been making progress on them. Progress on Edelweiss has also been going steadily, and an image of Edelweiss on the iPhone in Japanese suggests the possibility of the retranslation making it on the iPhone as well. Lastly, the first image posted in the article looks to be a trash incinerator. However, it is actually an animated GIF image, and would periodically flash to another, more gruesome image…
