Namco Bandai Bringing Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day To The West This Spring!

So happy. I’ve been waiting for this announcement =^_^=

Ranko Tsukigime is one of five stories which are part of the Short Piece series. Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day is the only story in the series which is a game and is designed by Suda 51 (No More Heroes, Killer Is Dead), and Yohei Kataoka (Tokyo Jungle). The game will be released via Playstation Network sometime this Spring. Here’s a look at how the game is below:


A Retro Recap Of The Final Fantasy XIII Series

This was pretty funny and cool. Yes this is official. Square-Enix released this themselves lol.


Ar NoSurge Gameplay!

Best gameplay video ever lol. We may not have gotten Ciel no Surge, but by the looks of this one I hope and think it has a chance of getting localized. All the gameplay and cinematics look very fun and exciting. I’m a big fan of the Ar Tonelico series, and this game is no exception. The characters, environments, and music are all beautifully done. We’ll just have to wait and see what they decide to do with this one.


Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Coming West In Early 2015 For 3DS

I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before, but I know the series is very popular. Here’s a video message from the games producer:


Watch Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Live Letter From The Producer XII!!! (Subtitled)

Someone recorded the event that took place earlier today going over the future content to come in the 2.16 and 2.2 updates.

*There is a slight delay between the subtitles and the video, but still excellent videos regardless* (more…)


Anime Of The Week 1/17 – 1/19…….. Witch Craft Works EP 3

The first anime of the week of the season goes to Witch Craft Works. The plot thickens here in this ep and Kagari shows us something pretty interesting for the first time. It was pretty exciting to see her transform like that into whatever she did lol. Kagair is my favorite character this season. She’s a fiery angel of death lol =P

Monster Monpiece Coming This Spring To North America And Europe!

Monster Monpiece Main Girls

When I saw this news I was just like O_O! lol

Yes Monster Monpiece. The Compile Heart game where you pinch, touch, and rub monster girls is getting localized this Spring lol. It will be available as a download on the PSN. In case you were wondering what the game is like, its a card battling game with RPG elements. In order to localize the game Idea Factory and Compile Heart had to censor some of the card images due to their “Strong sexual nature” apparently. The cards themselves haven’t been taken out of the game, it’s just that some images will be limited to their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form image. Even though I hate censorship in general, I’m still going to get it simply because I want to play the game, and IF made it clear about the changes in the statements which I posted below. It’s actually a miracle that we’re getting this kind of game at all lol. Here is a list of the cards which have been changed:

*NOTE: THE LIST BELOW SHOWS THE ORIGINAL JAPANESE CARDS NOT THEIR CHANGES. ONLY THESE CARDS WILL BE CHANGED AND THE REST OF THE GAME WILL BE INTACT IN ITS ENTIRETY*

Monster Monpiece Card Censor List

Here are 2 statements from Idea Factory explaining things. Their original statement, and one response taken from the IF forums in response to a customer to clarify things:

Original:

Idea Factory International, Inc. would like to inform fans and prospective users of Monster Monpiece that we have made the decision to remove several Monster Girl images from the North American and European versions of Monster Monpiece. The gameplay, game system, and storyline are fully intact and Idea Factory International strives to localize and publish Idea Factory titles with the same content as their Japanese releases.

Here is the list of Monster Girls whose images have been limited to that of their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form due to the strong sexual nature of the card images: Vampire, Kraken, Goblin, Cockatrice, Kobold, Skeleton, Titania, Bahamut, Fia, Brownie, Pegasus, Mandragora, Mau Sibau, Rafflesia, Death Scorpion, Phantom, and Tengu.

We fully understand that there are needs and demands for the complete version of these games. Our intention and motivation is to offer Idea Factory titles in a form that is as close as possible to the Japanese versions. This was a tough decision, but we would greatly appreciate your understanding and support.

Forum Response:

“Dear Jacob,

Thank you very much for taking your time to contact us!

To
answer your question, the number of censored cards are about 40 cards out of approx. 350 cards. So, more than 300 cards are intact from the original images. Please note that none of the stages, ability/stats and
Monster Girls character has been cut off, but replaced these higher
level monster girl images with the “less exposing” lower level version
of the corresponding monster girls.

We hope this will make your concern clear

Again, thank you VERY much for your kind support!!!

Sincerely,
Idea Factory International, Inc.”
