In the new version of the all-female fighting franchise, Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!! has gone through a lot of changes and is currently in location testing in Japan right now. Although it isn't certain if we'll ever see this update to the PS3 version of the game, our friends at HomingCancel.com has taken the liberty to translate the changelist given to them by Examu.
This is kinda late so please forgive us. From all of us at Anime Toshokan Inc. & A.G.E.S. Network, we would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Now get back to enjoying your presents like the rich folks you all are while I (Mikuru) goes back to enjoying the clothes I got.....yes people, clothes.
As of yesterday, Aeria Games head gamemaster Superman0X laid a bit of news on the Aeria Games community which involves yet another merger. If you may have already know, This will make it the company's 2nd merger in a years time period with them buying Ijji Games at the start of this year which also gave them the rights of operations for A.V.A. Online, GunZ: The First Duel, & Soldier Front.
Nyu-Media has announced that their newly released game titled "War of the Human Tanks" and the original soundtrack, Sound of the Human Tanks 1, are now available on the Nyu-Media website.
Created by Japanese indie developer Yakiniku Banzai! and localized by the very nice chaps of Fruitbat Factory, War of the Human Tanks is a story-driven turn-based strategy game.
Over the months, Kokoro Toshokan Inc. has laid dormant of any kind of update to it's basic design layout and content. Part of this is because the system we used called "FoolSlide" was new to us and was kinda awkward in handling with designing a new layout with as well as intergrating it with Invision Power Board. Another part of this is because the developers of Foolslide have now ceased all functions in regards to updates to the script as of right now and we have no indication as to when they'll continue providing upgrade support for it.
During this years E3 show (aka: Electronic Entertainment Expo), Sega had a little surprise for those who attended the show. As it has been reported, Sega had a demo of an English version of their latest upcoming release in the Project Diva game series "Project Diva ~F~". As with the previous games, Project Diva has been released on PSP with upgrades for playing on the PS3 but they have never made it outside of the shores of its homeland in Japan but due to the overwhelming popularity of Vocaloid diva "Hatsune Miku", it's hard not see fans eager to get their hands on the latest installment of the game.
It's one thing to change a release date for the better good of having no competition upon release but this was a rather big mistake on Examu / Aquaplus part. The previously scheduled release date to the Aquaplus celebrated fighter "Aquapazza" has been changed from it's Jun 28th date.
The official PlayStation 3 website for Aquapazza -AQUAPLUS Dream Match- began streaming the fighting game edition's first promotional video on Thursday. The video includes gameplay clips and showcases characters from bishōjo game maker AQUAPLUS's titles, including the version's four exclusive playable characters Oboro (Utawarerumono), Chizuru Kashiwagi (Kizuato), Llyr (Tears to Tiara), and Serika Kurusugawa (To Heart).
The game's regular edition will cost 7,140 yen (about US$87), while the limited edition will cost 8,379 yen (US$102) and bundle a special soundtrack CD and stick card set. A special deluxe set will also bundle a "Rapbox Real Arcade Pro.V3 SAP" joystick controller with character art and cost 20,790 yen (US$253). Those who pre-order the game by the end of May will receive a special clear file with an original design. In addition to the new characters, the PlayStation 3 version's other updates include PLAYSTATION Network play support as well as new story, score attack, training, and gallery modes.
Examu, the creator of the successful Japanese fighting game franchise Arcana Heart, developed Aquapazza as a 2D arcade game that was released last June. AQUAPLUS is streaming nine promotional videos for the original arcade version on its official website.
Aquapazza -AQUAPLUS Dream Match- will ship for the PlayStation 3 in Japan on June 28.
Almost a decade ago, Akamatsu Ken (author of best selling manga title "Love Hina" & "A.I. no Tomoranai") started a new manga series about a boy whom was a magi in training whom was following the example lead by his father. This boy soon started his training and was sent to an all-girls school at an academy known as "Mahora". Who would have known that this would be the started of what has become one of the biggest manga franchises of today.....surpassing even Akamatsu-san's very own Love Hina!?
In 2003, Negima became the next story created by Akamatsu-san after completing his smash hit "Love Hina" and since then, it has gained popularity so much that it has spawned 2 anime TV series, 2 OVAs, 2 OAD (Original Animation Disc), & 1 movie finale (this served as an alternate ending to the manga series). Along with this, Negima has amassed tons of music CDs from all of the animated works as well as drama CDs. Popularity of this franchise has always been high due to the comedy, action, drama, fanservice, and most importantly, the story. This is why that after 9 years, it's extremely sad to see the curtain fall upon this series and that it's time to say goodbye to Negi, Asuna, Konoka, Setsuna, Eva, & all of the others from Class 3-A whom we all grown to love throughout the years.
With that being said, it will be a while before the US edition of this series by Kodokawa Manga (formally known as Del-Ray Manga) reaches this point although it's getting close so if you want to spoil yourself and read the finale, you can head over to Red Hawk Scans and read it on their site. Red Hawk Scans is a fan scanlation group whom has been translating the manga as of last year, picking up the last few chapters up to the end of the series. Negima has been bounced all over by many scanlation groups which started from Aquastar Fansubs and was later done by independant people who then were recruited by Red Hawk Scans (although we know there are quite a bit more people and groups that did this series but these are the well-known ones who translated this series into english). Hopefully, we can get a small brief interview from the guys at Red Hawk Scans about their journey into doing the remaining chapters for this series.
