    Interestingly Fortune Summoners (which got a prestige review by Crooked Bee) gets a Japanese language only release on Steam by its developer.



    Thinking that Carpe Fulgur's 2012 English-only release was still a frontier of Japanese games on Steam at that time, this shows the time has changed a lot. Also hope this means that the developer is going to make and release more games on Steam I guess?

    What's with the banning of games on steam that are deemed "too risque?" Seems some bitch in Oz has infected fuckers in florida with their bullcrap opinions. Steam is pulling anime stuff I guess. Lotta Japanese artists not happy.

    It makes me wonder what games I should consider snagging before they're gone. I'm not a VN guy but Atlier has piqued my interest. On gog I should get the last Trails game i guess.

    Steam now has literal porn games in their store. Most of them are shoddily made 3d cheap arse shovelware but they are there.

    I think the problem with Japanese VN in general are putting underages on sexual situations. A lot of VN have high school setting and lolis which are usually the target of the ban.

    Something like Atelier games should be safe but VNs are more in danger I guess.

    Looks like a Monkey King easier Sekiro. I like what I'm seeing a lot.

    Btw, pretty sure this is a Chinese game. There's a thread for non-Japanese Asian news posts, just for your information.

    They even show side by side comparisons so you can see how much worse the remake is.

    Apart from looking like shit, showing massive framerate drops in a trailer is always a good sign.

    Think that this is being developed by the original creator and Japanese studio, and compare this to the remake and the sequel made by Western devs.

    More Japanese only indie/doujin games on Steam. Both are roguelike but in different aesthetics.

    I'd probably be getting Sakuna right when it comes out if it didn't come out the same day as Yakuza 7. Looks like an interesting concept and a lot of fun. It'll have to wait though. Bad timing.

    Digimon Survive was delayed to 2021:

    However, according to the Japanese twitter, the delay is due an engine change that happened during summer/2019, coupled with 2020 shenanigans.
