    December 31st, 2011, by zalas in Translation

    Both JAST USA and MangaGamer have delivered their year-end updates. From the JAST USA end, it looks like Saya no Uta and Hanachirasu will be sold separately, although there will be a discount for buying them together. The two games along with Sumaga are scheduled to be out before Anime Expo. Meanwhile, MangaGamer states that they’re working on a 4th hard copy game from the J-List distribution deal, which will be a game they have already released that they are trying to fix up. Furthermore, they’re also aiming for a end-of-February or beginning-of-March release for DEARDROPS, while the trial version is currently out for people to try out the game. Dengeki Stryker and Harukoi Otome are still in translation, with the former aimed at a release by the time Anime Expo comes around. As for ef – the first tale, it’s still undergoing review by NNL of the latest build from minori, which if it passes, will allow the release to proceed.

According to MangaGamer, sales of Go Go Nippon during the first week beat out Kara no Shoujo and We Love Master in their first week sales. However, sales numbers for the first week were still less than first day sales of Koihime Musou. The rate at which Go Go Nippon has been selling has MangaGamer commenting that “[they'd] love to see the game expanded through DLC, so [they] hope it continues to sell well.”
