That's the visual novel where you try and get a date for your gay dad, isn't it?

Edit: out of context and on a new page that sentence is so weird.

I am definitely going to quote that in a different thread at some random point in the future so that it is even more out of context.

So not only is he a denier of Japanese war crimes, Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama is an anti-LGBT lobbyist :| https://www.resetera.com/threads/dragon ... too.57403/

There's a video out there with him as an interviewer chuckling along to stuff like 'we should not waste tax on LGBT as they're unproductive/don't reproduce'.

:| yet another slash and hack rpg, these things are ten a penny these days.

Today Japanese publisher Furyu revealed a new batch of videos of its upcoming JRPG Crystar.

The assets show four new characters, Kokoro Fudoji, Sen Megumiba, Anamnesis, and Nanana (or “777”).

The first two are living girls, the other two are spirits. Kokoro and Sen are protagonist Rei’s allies, Anamnesis is a recurring enemy, and Nanana is as mysterious as her name.

We also take a look at some of the systems in the game. By defeating enemies, Rei will be overwhelmed by their pain. By returning to her room in the real world she can cry to purify that pain thanks to the Katharsis system. By maxing the tears gauge a guardian will manifest, and it will automatically protect the player

What isn’t clear is if Europe will be getting a physical edition, as there’s currently no word or sight of it yet!

8) now this one looks weird....


Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle, the PlayStation 4 and Switch version of Hyakki Castle announced earlier this week, will launch digitally in North America and Europe day and date with its Japanese release on August 30 for $13.99 / €11.99 / £10.99, publisher Happinet announced.


Trailer : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkOQgmnIFlE



Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle aims to deliver a fast-paced, challenging, mysterious, and suspenseful single-player RPG experience utilizing smart tactics and quick thinking to defeat enemies in real-time.

Set during the Edo Period of Japan, Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle is based on the eerie and terrifying Hyakki Island, a place where prisoners are sent to live in exile. A mysterious castle suddenly appears on the island bringing a slew of creepy monsters, such as the “Yokai” of ancient Japanese literature. The island imprisons a cunning rebel mastermind who seeks to overthrow the Shogun order and assassinate its leader. Players play as four special agents of the Shogun order, specializing in Yokai and monster slaying, to investigate the island’s mysterious Hyakki Castle, and to eliminate the rebel mastermind manipulating the Island and its inhabitants.

Featuring a unique approach to the traditional real-time dungeon RPG genre, Haunted Dungeons: Hyakki Castle encourages players to split their party with its exclusive 2-party system, a feature not yet seen in real-time dungeon RPGs on consoles, making strategic fights easier. Players must use unique skills and move-sets in destroying monsters with distinctive attacks and behavior, while executing pincer attacks, flanks and more as you progress upward in the mysteries castle to defeat the rebel mastermind causing the extraordinary events on the island.

Key Features
•Real-time RPG Action: Execute various tactics such as flanking, distracting, and more for your party in real-time as “Yokai” appear throughout the castle to bring death upon players.
•Twice the Possibilities: Split your group of assassins into two parties at any time to deal with traps, puzzles, and enemies for unparalleled strategy and party options.
•Explore a Monstrous Castle: The enormous castle is filled with cunning traps—some of which can only be solved by dividing your party—and tough boss monsters, testing player instincts and judgement.
•Explore Japanese Character Classes and Races: Choose to play as an Oni, Tengu, Human, or Nekomata with four distinct races on tap to add diverse skillsets to your party.
•Tutorial Mode: Learn to survive and defeat the Yokai and bosses in a tutorial mode that provides an in-depth explanation on all the mechanics and tactics needed to survive.
•Redefined UI Experience: Experience real-time gameplay with improved UI designed for console gameplay and beginners of the real-time dungeon RPG genre.

Yeah it is a very old school dungeon crawler, but I do love Japanese mythology and at that price i'm tempted.
