MEGA Post of Updates

Lots of stuff has been happening here at Aksys. Here’s what you (shouldn’t have) missed:

Fate/EXTRA shipped out to stores on November 1st, so that means every one of our retailers should have it in their hands by now. If not, and you’re aching to get a copy, you can buy it from our webstore.

The Limited Edition comes with everything you see here (more specifically, a soundtrack CD and an artbook). Standard Edition is just the game.

Both versions also include the Fate/The Fact booklet, originally available only as a pre-order bonus! We will not print these books again, so get them while they last.

Rising Star Games has announced that they are publishing BIT.TRIP SAGA and BIT.TRIP COMPLETE in Europe in Q1 2012!

“We’re hugely excited about bringing BIT.TRIP SAGA & BIT.TRIP COMPLETE to a European audience,” says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. “With such a unique look and critically acclaimed gameplay, we’re expecting big things from both titles, and can’t wait to bring these to gamers across the continent.”

“Everyone at Gaijin Games is very excited to have BIT.TRIP SAGA & BIT.TRIP COMPLETE join Rising Star Games’ excellent and varied library of games”, commended Alex Neuse, co-founder, Gaijin Games. “From a publisher who literally has something to offer for every type of gamer, we couldn’t be happier with this perfect fit of a European publishing partner.”

Why is Hakuoki rated “M” for Mature? Here’s what the ESRB had to say:

“This is a role-playing game in which players follow the story of a girl searching for her missing father in 19th–century Japan. As the storyline unfolds, players make choices that affect interactions between specific characters. Some still-frame cutscenes depict violent acts: a woman getting bit on the neck; characters getting attacked with swords. These scenes are sometimes accompanied by cries of pain and flesh-impact sounds. Text descriptions include violent references such as “I heard the wet slice of two blades cutting into human flesh” and “. . . . [A]s I watched, the blades kept falling, carving deep lines into the corpse.” Characters are sometimes depicted with large blood stains on their bodies and/or clothing. During the course of the game, the dialogue contains some sexual references (e.g., “Didn’t think I’d be getting pushed down into bed tonight, least of all by you” and “Tell me…How is it? On top of me. Does it feel good?’); in one sequence, a man is depicted lying on top of a woman (both fully clothed) before having sex. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in dialogue.”

Pre-order pages on GameStop and Amazon for Hakuoki are up!

    Arrggh I preordered Fate/Extra from Gamestop but didn’t get the Fate/The Fact booklet (brick and mortar). Can I get one from the Aksys online store?

    Do only console novels get a ESRB rating?? I bought some on PC and all they have is this weird Icon on the box that says 18+ Mature Content thingy.

    I’m only in the first week and I LOVE Fate/Extra! Please tell me are you guys going to localize the sequel as well after it comes out in Japan next year?

    Same as kyok above, just different retailer – I ordered Fate/Extra from Newegg.com and never got the Fate/The Fact book. Is there a way to get one from the store?

    @Jen Hi! Unfortunately, the Fate/the Fact book pre-order bonus was only available through GameStop.

    @Rai It’s too early to say, we’ll have to see how Fate/EXTRA does here first. We’ve gotten many requests, but no guarantees right now!

    @fieryelf PC games would get the same ESRB rating if it has a console release. I am not sure about PC-only releases as we’ve never published one here yet.

    @kyok The Fate/the Fact booklet is only available on our store if you purchase the game. Email our support team and we’ll see what we can do.

    Hi,

    I guess I was confused by this — Fate/EXTRA shipped out to stores on November 1st, so that means every one of our retailers should have it in their hands by now. — followed by — Both versions also include the Fate/The Fact booklet, originally available only as a pre-order bonus! We will not print these books again, so get them while they last. — ? So I’d assumed it wasn’t just a GameStop thing, since you mentioned ‘all the retailers’ before. Either way, I shot your support team an email. Thanks for being awesome!

    @Jen “Both versions also include the Fate/The Fact booklet, originally available only as a pre-order bonus! We will not print these books again, so get them while they last.” refers to our webstore only. After the GameStop pre-order bonus ended, we made the books available if the game is purchased through our webstore. It’s the only place they’re available now. Also, sorry for the confusion!

    Is Hakuoki going to be released for Nintendo DS like the Japan version?

    @MinazukiFI So far, Hakuoki will only be released on PSP in North America.
