Complete Guide ebook

The 7D 2020 Complete Guide is “available online as an ebook”:http://bookwalker.jp/pc/detail/e205dd12-45f2-4510-a88b-0658579f8a65/ if you have access to BOOK☆WALKER.

The app for Android is region locked, unfortunately, and the iOS app is only available on the Japanese App Store, so it’s basically a Japan-only thing for now.

Quickie merchandise update

“Official site update for 12/16″:http://jrpg.jp/news/?nid=307

* Official soundtrack as mentioned previously
* Clear files being sold at Winter Comiket only :(
* T-shirts being sold pretty much everywhere, I saw them listed on CDJapan prior to the last update. I guess if you want to wear a white shirt with samurai girl on the front, or a black shirt with the Murakumo logo, they’ve got you covered.

The bad news: No Miku version on this. I presume there will be another version at some point.

7D x SQ = DQ?

Except not really, it looks more like EO3 with a 3-party system and dragons. And it’s running on Android. Hope to see an international release. Looks like Sunaho Tobe doing the character art again.

Diva Mode BGM samples

“Diva Mode BGM is now available on the official website for your listening enjoyment”:http://dragon2020.sega.jp/special_miku.html.

Vocals AND lyrics if you click on the right button. Excellent.

#1 and #2 are BGM for Murakumo HQ
#3 and #4 are dragon battle themes.

These tracks are included along with the Yuzo Koshiro originals on the preorder soundtrack.

OK this might be too much to translate (interview at the bottom). But if you’re curious what Yuzo Koshiro, Rieko Kodama, and sasakure.UK look like, “check out the last photo”:http://www.famitsu.com/images/000/005/879/4eccca00a2e5e.html (that’s them in order, to the right of the samurai cosplayer.

Happy thanksgiving everybody!

Gameplay with Imaoka-san

Imaoka-san ♥♥♥

Also there’s Niinou offscreen (why??) and some actual gameplay this time! I had some stuff written up about the video but then I closed the browser window yesterday :( Oh well, I’ll do it again later. Gameplay looks more Persona and less Dragon Quest by the minute.

Aand finally, the game’s out! Looks like my order is ready to ship ♥

Torrent

Fast and furious suddenly

Another random Tokyo cutscene video featuring “the remaining survivors of mankind” etcetc. Hey some of these characters look familiar…

“There’s more detailed art of them here”:http://game.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/20111118_491743.html – I guess Emel is American or something how about that.

Also, more importantely, more Aitel
