    While on the subject of odd ways of making cash, you know where SNK gets all their money for making high quality fighting games? Hand-held games where you touch up schoolgirls and mobile dating sims. AliceSoft making a non-eroge for hand-helds is kind of a bizarro world version of that.

    Apparently, in the new TT for 3DS the winner of each round gets to date the partner of the loser. Imagine how a serial dating Rance would work.

    Exposing Rance to little school children can only result in lulz.

    Spring release. :bounce:

    And another Toushin Toshi seems to be involved.

    I hope the coolest girl is back to not being so cool in this game.

    Seems like it will have a love system of shorts for the 7 main heroines. Different endings maybe?

    Helman is basically Russia and there's a new girl named Russia. Brilliant.

    Russians are not blond. Not unless you bleach them...

    Well, that map shows that there's quite a lot of them in Russia so your point is? :smug:
    (At least in the European part of it...)

    But of course you're right that it's strange the cliché of Russian women being blonde in Japanese mangas is so widely spread, considering most of the country has mainly Asian features.

    On topic: I didn't have a chance to look at the Rance IX site yet, but what i can see from the trailer and screens it reminds me of Rance VI the most, with the globes in the romance-screen and whatnot

    You know, now that I think of it, it seems kind of odd to have a "love" system and 7 set heroines like that, considering Rance has not been the most generic of JRPG heroes.

    I wonder if it'll end up a joke where no matter what you do, you'll max out everyone? Will this end up as a rare time where Codex won't want C&C?!

    For purchasing the game I can't tell for sure, for more general questions and a walkthrough check the wikia:

    http://alicesoft.wikia.com/wiki/Sengoku_Rance

    But I don't recommend following a guide for the first time, is better to learn by yourself.
    The trick to deal with the demon army and the nobunaga events is to not break the first 5 guards to fast (you can check those in the F5 menu), this way you will have more time to level your commanders (for boss battles), recruit more commanders and hold more land before the demon army appears.

    For a more in depth discussion you can check specialized forums:

    http://www.hongfire.com/forum/showthread.php/54917-AliceSoft-Sengoku-Rance-Discussion-Thread

    Sengoku is a good option, since it's the best and the more addictive (and it doesn't require to much knowledge of previous titles). If you want to play them in chronological order, the first 4 are translated (but some of them are very dated, you might want to just follow my Let's Plays in my sig). If you don't mind if the games are in japanese play the remake Rance 01, I heard is quite good

    KR is around 25%
    R 4.1 around 80% (I will try to LP this one when 4.2 get's translated, IF I manage to play it in my pc).

    A little question, should I add Rance 4 avatars to the gallery? Being old-school and all it should only cause butthurt among the most anal posters right?

    Do I need to do something special with the images ? (Png, jpg... size...)


    I mean images like this:

    You should definitely add the avatars. I believe they do need to be resized, but Crooked Bee can probably tell you more. Also check this thread for more info: http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/avatars.5138/page-49

    That patch only had a small fraction of the translation, you will have to wait for the full translation (and who knows when that will be).
