Over the weekend MangaGamer held a panel at Anime NYC where they revealed some new releases coming to their website and some new projects as well. Let’s jump in and see what goodies they had in store.
First up we have Lupiesoft’s long awaited release of Dizzy Hearts Chapter 1. The game is up for pre-order now on MangaGamer.com with a sweet discount making it a mere $10.46. You can snag up this tale of a world split between eternal day and eternal night on December 5th. This is an All-Ages title.
The naive but energetic Seriva sets out on a journey of adulthood in the tradition of her people, venturing to the land of eternal night in the hopes of new discoveries.
Yet what she finds is a realm dominated by a social hierarchy born from biological necessity. In this vastly different culture of elves living in a sunless land, the rulers are all ‘fiore’, the hermaphroditic sires of their people. Yet it would seem Seriva has arrived at a tumultuous time – rumor has it the acting Queen will soon abdicate her throne to one of the four fiore princesses. A chance encounter with the bastard princess, Mercilla, lands her quarters within the palace and she finds herself forced to make a choice. She must choose between remaining a spectator to the political machinations, or getting more involved for the sake of Mercilla, who struggles with the weight of an impending crown she never wanted.
Dizzy Hearts is the biggest and most ambitious project in Lupiesoft’s history as a developer. While the title will be released in three chapters, the first of which will be available on December 5th, fans can now pre-order the first chapter today on MangaGamer, and check out the demo on both MangaGamer and Steam.
MangaGamer is now releasing a physical edition of A Kiss for the Petals: Maidens of Michael. This release will also include A Kiss for the Petals: Remember How We Met. Making the entire story of Risa and Miya’s relationship together in one deluxe package.
The game is available for pre-order now and will begin shipping on November 22nd.
Next up at Anime NYC 2019 we have information about the release of Bokuten – Why I Became an Angel. This is OVERDRIVE’s heart-wrenching tale of love and happiness with some heavy feels.
In this cold, cruel world where happiness is finite, and the pursuit is fraught with pain and suffering, what does it really mean to be happy? Love? The absence of pain?
If you were gifted with the ability to revive fading loves, would you choose to do so? Would you let them all play out? Would you try reviving all of them? Or would you pick and choose, deciding which love, which happiness was worth trying to save? What about your own?Available for pre-order now from MangaGamer, this highly emotional tale of love, pain, and the complexity of human relationships will be coming to MangaGamer and Steam this winter on December 19th. Fans will also be able to order a deluxe edition that includes the game’s OST and vocal albums from the in-game band!
But wait, there’s more! We will be launching two special DLC packs on our website and Steam to celebrate Bokuten – Why I Became an Angel’s release!
