MangaGamer has released details about the upcoming release of the West-First Japanese Visual Novel, Space Live. Circus, makers of Da Capo and Dal Segno series approached MangaGamer about developing a product with the Western audience in mind after seeing their title have booming sales here. This is how Space live came to be. The game is a parody on internet browsers and idol competitions, so this should be one humorous ride.

Here is more about the game straight from the press release:

Space Live
Over 200 years in the future, humanity has abandoned reality and chosen to upload themselves into Net Space, a digital, interconnected world, divided into several factions surrounding different idols who compete every four years to win followers to their side.There’s Macro Space‘s Ai E, a hardworking, easily flustered girl trying to regain her lost position; Goggle Space‘s G Chrome, a logical competitor using her wealth and data troves in a bid to secure the lead; Mosaic Space‘s Higitsune, a haughty, elusive idol enjoying the competition itself; Ai Space‘s Sarifa, an eloquent fashionista willing to bet it all; and Luna Space‘s Tsukikage, a minor idol hoping to finally gain some recognition.
Space Live – Advent of the Net Idols will release on September 29th on MangaGamer and Steam for a price of $9.99 and has a 15+ age rating.  You can pre-order the game over on MangaGamer’s site and get a 10% discount.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    Plot twist that should surprise no one – Goggle is evil and rigging the competition.

    Grim future aside, that’s a nice humorous premise and the artstyle reminds me of Senran Kagura, which is a great thing.

      if you don’t mind adult content and you’re looking for something senran kagura-ish (artstyle) I would suggest to keep an eye out for Evenicle which is being localized (Translation: 100%
      Editing: 87%)


      I’m pretty sure that one will sell decently so in case you don’t wanna bother with digital (iirc you’re into physicals?) if you wait a while they’ll probably release a physical version, game is 18+ though so keep that in mind, I know that is a problem in some countries.

    • Steve Baltimore

      This is a fairly deep RPG and this is done by the actual Senran Kagura character designer.

  • Miqubi

    eh with that price tag it means it’ll be a short one, feels a bit like they’re chasing winged cloud but without the 18+ content (and I’m not really a fan/supporter of winged cloud games even with their adult patches).
    I’m gonna keep an eye out in case it turns out to be something nice like supipara but I’m not holding my breath

    • Steve Baltimore

      This was kinda my exact thoughts. Seems like they are chasing the Oh MOE BIG TIDDY crowd with this one and that doesn’t impress me. At the 10 buck price tag I’ll probably check this out, but I’m not expecting much.
