Anime Expo 2018 Announcements

The biggest anime convention of the year, Anime Expo in Los Angeles, is happening this weekend! Our panel just finished and we want to share and recap everything that you might have missed! Here are our announcements!

 

Announcements 

I Walk Among Zombies series

Developer: Seacoxx

 

Last month, we announced the upcoming release of I Walk Among Zombies, and we’re very excited to tell you that the first game of the series just released live during our AX 2018 panel!

Sequels I Walk Among Zombies Vol. 2 and Vol. 3, as well as a prequel to the story, I Walk Among Zombies Vol. 0, are now also confirmed. The Nocturne Novels’ favorite thrilling zombie tale will be available to play in English with gorgeous art and music to support the already adored story!

The earth descends into chaos, the victim count rising at an astronomical rate. Those unlucky enough to survive, spend their days in despair. But among them is our protagonist. Will he use his power to become a hero… or something else…?

Yuusuke is an office worker with a dislike for people, preferring to do his job alone and in silence. When the company he works for suddenly goes bankrupt, he loses his job, and with that, all his motivation disappears, and he becomes a complete shut-in.

On one of the rare days he decides to leave his apartment after a week-long video game binge, a mysterious man attacks him and bites his arm. Though Yuusuke manages to escape back to his room, he comes down with a fever and becomes bedridden for several days.

When Yuusuke wakes up, recovered, he goes to resume his normal life, but he soon finds that in the short time he was asleep the world has completely changed. Zombies have emerged in every corner of the world simultaneously, and the few human survivors are now in hiding.

However…

Why am I the only one the zombies don’t attack?

How will Yuusuke take advantage of his new situation, and what will he discover?

9 -nine- Episode 1

Developer: Palette

 

A new series from Palette, the developers of Saku Saku: Love Blooms with the Cherry Blossoms, this new project focuses on an individual heroine per volume, with the first volume focusing on heroine, Miyako Kujo.

The story takes place in Shiromitsugawa City, an academic city with no particular characteristics. Though Niimi Kakeru, a young ordinary student, seems to live a peaceful life, the destruction of the sacred relic of the Shrine of the White Serpent has changed his life.

In the midst of all this appear youths with supernatural powers. Niimi Kakeru finds himself wrapped up in this mysterious fate caused by the appearance of these supernatural individuals…

 

 

The game is translated and currently being edited before submitting to the developer for engine work.

 

Re;Lord 2

Developer: Escu:de

 

Re;Lord 2, the second title in the Re;Lord trilogy, is a strip battle SLG with strategy and battle gameplay. Our hero Wilfred and his companions return to battle with the witch Iris, in order to liberate all of Groessen.

Cologne, a land filled with grassy plains and home to the country’s fishing industry and the popular tourist spot, Bebra Lake, is under the control of the witch Iris who has turned the denizens of this peaceful land into crow familiars, spirits, and devilish fiends.
 

 

Featuring full Japanese voice acting, gorgeous artwork and slapstick comedy with fun characters and a detailed story. The Re;Lord series has great gameplay elements such as skills level-up, achievements, and various CGs and H-scenes that are affected by the battle results. 

 

Majo Koi Nikki

Developer: Qoobrand

 

Majo Koi Nikki is Qoobrand’s very first title! Also known as Witch’s Love Diary, the exquisite story of Alice as she falls in love for the first time take center stage in this dainty and seductive visual novel.

While Alice and her friends were investigating a clock tower in a forest on the outskirts of the academy, she picked up a mysterious diary that fell from the tower. Taking it home, she gently opened up the diary and there she found the contents of a young man’s daily life.

With the diary in hand and this little town as the stage, a girl’s first love… a story of unrequited love begins.

 

 

Harumade Kururu

Developer: Sumikko Soft

 

A harem nukige with comedy, mystery and multiple routes with four adorable heroines. Taking place in a disconnected, remote and yet dreamy location during springtime, the protagonist spends his time surrounded by those girls and very little else in terms of distraction.

One girl. In a quiet summer that’s quite prone to crazy happenings. And these words that come out of her mouth.

We’ll make this place a harem for him!

Wait, when you say harem, uhm… well… Huh????
I wondered what she meant by that as she took off her clothes and the events of that summer unfolded…

 

 

Mischievous Sensation



Developer: Latte Coffee VN

Developed in Unity with their homemade Foca VN Engine, Mischievous Sensation has animated sprites for a very visually dynamic look! With a peculiar protagonist as the main character, this title focuses on a story with both comedy and romance.

The protagonist just finished his vacations, and is about to start a new scholar year. He spent a great part of his vacations playing eroge and planning the development of a game about magical girls, alongside his partner and artist Moe_Lover24, a big friend of his.

The return to his student life started with the departure of his childhood friend Fumiko, thus forcing him to socialize with the other people from his class, though, could this be possible for him?

 

 

 Updates

Ne No Kami Indiegogo Update

Most goods are now printed and ready, such as the dakimakuras, shikishis, artbooks and game boxes. The manga is finished and included in the artbook!

Sakura-Con & Anime Boston Announcement!

Hello everyone!

 

We hope that you’re enjoying Sakura-Con or Anime Boston this weekend. If you couldn’t attend, please enjoy this brand new live announcement! We have a very interesting game to present to you today, a novelty in the genre of games we usually publish, which makes it even more exciting for us!

 

 

 Developer: Studio Shimapan

 

Mahou Arms is a new project in early development by Studio Shimapan, a team of experienced veterans in the game development world. Lead magical girls into battle; your girls will transform, fight, win, and get their battle uniforms ripped to shreds in the battle against the alien menace! When they return, develop your relationships with the girls, go on dates, and do lewd things!

Teaser  

 

 

A high-quality game with 3 different girls to choose from, each with romance routes and different fighting/play styles. Mahou Arms is a real-time, third-person magical girl hack and slash dating simulator made in Unreal Engine 4 with 100% custom content. With a focus on combat, this title is inspired by Nier:Automata, Bayonetta and Devil May Cry.

 

 Story

 Amelia hears the deafening sound of turboprop engines and distant explosions as she stands on the edge, looking at the shimmering city below. She still remembers the feeling of the first time she stood at the back of this plane’s open cargo door. Like then, every muscle in her body still resists the act. With her free hand, she reaches her into her pocket and takes out her cellphone. It opens to her messaging app, where earlier, she was having a conversation with the Commander. She smiles, puts the phone back in her pocket, then jumps.

You’re taking me out to dinner after this, Commander!

The sound of propellers is gone, replaced with sounds of rushing wind and plasma beams whizzing by. Amelia taps her necklace, and her magical girl transformation begins.
