March 25th, 2016–MangaGamer Announces New Titles and Drama CDs!
Today we have several great announcements from Anime Boston, including new acquisitions!
First up, Free Friends! This sexy tale of blackmail, exploitation, and possible salvation will be coming to Hard Copy this summer! Fans of Noesis and dark, sexy titles will be able to own this great game on disc starting on May 20th for just $24.95! Pre-orders are already open on MangaGamer.
Secondly, we’re proud to announce our expansion of the Kindred Spirits franchise, and our very first release of a new product–drama CDs! We’re excited to be breaking new ground with this first foray into the sale of localized drama CDs for fans to enjoy. It is our hope that the success of this endeavor will help pave the way for future drama CD releases as well.
Each of the four drama CDs tell sequels to th e stories of each of the couples in the original games. The first follows Ano, as Yuna, Hina, and Nena pretend to be her girlfriends in order to throw off some stalkers. In the second, Youka and Kiri realize they’re repeating the same dates with their partner, so they both agree to have the other plan their next date. The third showcases Miki, Maki, Matsuri, and Miyu as they all share a vacation to the beach. Then, in the final drama CD, the broadcasting club hosts a radio show during a sale at the local shopping district. In addition, each drama CD will also feature special voice samples for each of the characters featured on the CD.
All four drama CDs will be sold both on Steam and MangaGamer as subtitled videos for $9.99 each. The first Kindred Spirits drama CD will be available this April, and we hope to release the successive drama CDs roughly one month following the previous volume’s release. We will also be carrying limited copies of the origin al Japanese drama CDs at future conventions throughout this year for those who would like to own the originals in pure audio format.
And lastly, our brand new acquisition from Moonstone–Imouto Paradise 2! Fans of little sisters and Imouto Paradise will love this new addition to the series, since incest runs in the family! After Shoichirou and his little sisters shacked up in the wake of Imouto Paradise, they began raising their new family together. And now, with the parents away on an extended vacation, the new generation of siblings follow in their family’s footsteps, showing their love for each other in deep, heart-pounding new ways!
