A new trailer has been released for upcoming visual novel strategy RPG hybrid “Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen“, a sequel to the previous title, revealed long ago in 2002, and likely to be a source of much joy to diehard fans knowing that the series has not yet been forgotten – not least if it should presage any more anime adaptations.

Tears to Tiara Bukkake Scene

ティアーズ・トゥ・ティアラ / Tears to Tiara Complete Eroge Nirvana

Covered in sweet milk? “SRPG” Tears to Tiara, which is shaping up to be a masterpiece visual novel in my opinion, somehow managed to get a CERO B rating in spite of scenes like this, which truly is heartening. More below.

Tears to Tiara First Impressions

ティアーズ・トゥ・ティアラ / Tears to Tiara First Impressions

The much anticipated ティアーズ・トゥ・ティアラ / Tears to Tiara was recently released, and I braved the summer thunderstorms in a foray to Ikebukuro to pick up a copy; much to my surprise the kind folks at Bic Camera also saw fit to provide me with the preorder goody box, despite having not preordered or even bothered to buy the collector’s edition. Having had a chance to get into the game, I offer my impressions.

Tears To Tiara News Roundup

Morgan menanced by tentacles - delightful

A few items of news about this interesting looking eroge cum RPG, due July 17th, are apparent. Famitsu has some shots of the game system; the element circle system and leader skill system are covered a bit – looking promising as an SRPG. Also see the updated official site for more.

More interestingly, Dengeki provides some shots of the CG event scenes running on a large TV – they look fantastic. If only actual eroge ran at that resolution, maybe they would sell more (I can’t be the only one who doesn’t like looking at 800*600 on a 27 inch monitor). Lastly, AkibaBlog has some shots of the promotional antics in Akiba, though little actual new info

Tears to Tiara PC vs PS3 Comparison

Tears to Tiara - Morgan

As Tears to Tiara has piqued my interest, and with recent details looking all the more promising, I couldn’t help but notice this comparison of the character designs for the PS3 versus those for the PC (large picture mirrored here); looking like a vast improvement in art (downloading the PC version CGs no longer looks very appealing does it?) and a promising game, even if it is a shame to lose the erotic elements of the game. Still, if that is the price to pay for the next generation reincarnation, perhaps it is worth paying…
