Sorcery Saga: Trailer of the Curry God ⊟
So Sorcery Saga, releasing for PS Vita in the U.S. early next year, looks like a super cutesy roguelike! Which is something I can definitely get down with. However, I am severely disappointed with the lack of visible curry in this trailer.
Sorcery Saga LE includes curry accessories ⊟
I’m not saying it makes sense for other games to come with bibs, plates, and spoons for eating Japanese curry. As far as I know, Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God is the only game about making the world’s greatest curry (with the help of a girl who can read people’s “Curry Auras.”)
I’m just saying, more games should come with curry accessories, to encourage people to eat curry. I want some curry.
Trailer for Hakuoki: Memories of the Bishounen ⊟
It’s all pretty boys and no gameplay in this trailer — who cares if this releases in just two weeks, and most people have no idea what the actual game plays like? I’m pretty sure this video is exactly what the people who intend to pick up this otome visual novel want.
In case you missed it, Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi is a little cheaper than most 3DS releases — just $30 unless you pick up the $50 limited edition package (includes art book, towel, and fan).
Virtue’s Last Reward finally on the 3DS eShop ⊟
I don’t know why this took so long — I believe it had a day-one PSN release for PS Vita — but you can now buy the second entry from Chunsoft’s Zero Escape series on the eShop. It’s available with nice discount, priced at $24.99 (until September 3) instead of the $39.99 it’s going for at retail.
More details on today’s handheld download releases, including the 100th 3DS Virtual Console release in North America, over on this page!
Hakuoki 3DS coming to the U.S.
Hakuoki, the otome visual novel about romancing fictional, pretty versions of the Shinsengumi, is being released on 3DS in North America courtesy of Aksys (retail and on eShop — thanks to The Gay Gamer for getting to the bottom of that).
Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi contains the content from the PSP game, as well as six new stories and a photo/movie gallery, so you can gaze upon what Aksys’s lead editor Ben Bateman described as “hot mans.” There’s even a photo booth feature so you can pose with said mans.
Tenmyouji droppin’ knowledge
What else could it stand for?
Want a limited edition yellow Virtue’s Last Reward watch? Pick up VLR from Aksys’s store right now on 3DS or PS Vita, and you’ll get one.
Now here’s the tricky part: if you don’t have the game, you might not know you want this tie-in item. So now you might have to gamble on buying the game under the assumption you’ll want one of these after playing it. It’s a nonary game-style mindbender!
…again, which you won’t get until you play it.
Muramasa Reborn on Vita
Muramasa: The Demon Blade, a game you’re no doubt familiar with if you’ve endured our website for any amount of time, will be released on PS Vita in North America by Aksys Games, under the title Muramasa: Rebirth.
The Vita port adds new DLC with four new characters to the original Wii edition, and a new localization by Aksys’s esteemed writers. It’s gonna look so good on that screeeeeeeen.
If you buy a PS Vita bundle on Amazon, you’ll get a copy of acclaimed visual novel Virtue’s Last Reward for free! Amazon has a number of options for this deal, including PS Vita bundles or Assassin’s Creed III: LIberation, Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified, and Madden NFL 13 — I’d go with the first one, especially since it comes with a white PS Vita model. This sale will run until the end of December 15.
This artwork, by the way, is available with a wallpaper-sized version at Kalsypher’s DeviantArt page.
Junpei will return for the next Zero Escape game
Answering fans’ questions on Twitter, Zero Escape series director and writer Kotaro Uchikoshi disclosed that 999's hero Junpei will participate in the next nonary game. This third game is expected to delve into the mysteries of Radical-6 and Phi, too.
Also returning in the next Zero Escape release: Virtue’s Last Reward's Dio and Tenmyouji.
I’ve no idea where this rad GIF came from (maybe Omocat?), so drop in a comment if you know its origins!
