Damn. And I thought $60 for new PS3/360 games was a lot.

(It's $100.59 regular, $79.99 pre-order sale).

Well considering Typemoon's RRP on their site is 8400 yen for the standard edition, consider yourself lucky it's going for quite alot less on many sites (amiami, toranoana etc). In fact, it's pretty damn cheap for a high profile new VN release.

On another note, more Aoko <3

Spoiler for ametoyuki:

Are video games in general more expensive in Japan? For example, does Final Fantasy sell for less once it's released in the US? Or are VNs just expensive?

It varies from game to game. For example, when I went to Japan last summer, I was able to get games like Utawarerumono and Chaos;Head at about 3000 yen (which is between $30 and 40 dollars). But some VNs there are really expensive. I tried getting a copy of Tsukibako while I was there, and it was about 12,000 yen, and when I bought I/O recently, it was at almost 9,000 (so I bought a used, much cheaper version.)

As for RPGs, no, from the ones I bought in Japan, they're about the same there as they are here.

I'd say the price range can be extremely varied (who can forget that bin of FFXIII games for 500 yen all of a month after release ) but generally from what I've seen new release VNs geneally go for ~8/9k yen reg and 10/11k+ for limited ed. Give it some time and the price may rise or fall depending on availability and popularity.

What could honestly be pushing this back so much? It's not like it's anything but a glorified kinetic novel.

I don't believe they're unreasonably priced. Don't forget that this stuff takes a lot of time to make. The studio employees have to get paid, volume sales probably aren't as high as mainstream games, so that money has to come from somewhere.

Besides, how long has it been since the last TM project >_> (although they should be making a pretty penny from all their various licenses)

That is awesome. If only I didn't forget all the Italian I learned in school, haha.

I hope Mirror Moon or someone is gearing up for this.

Someone translated the demo in English and inserted it, something that was puzzling everyone so you can try it, if you like.

Sojourou gardening skills are awesome. Also flying pigs and Mystic Eyes of Heart Attack.

Overall, all the graphics are like CGs, the music is a delight on the ears, it contains a lot of animation, is pretty good.

I forgot how beautiful Nasu's writing was before playing this game..

Somehow I really like the fact that Aoko is a bit..well I don't know how to describe it well except for: girly. I thought every magician were weird and socially awkward, but I guess it's different with Aoko Considering she still read girl's magazine, having a guitar in her room and a member of student council, I guess she could adapt well with modern society

Considering the Aoko we knew before this VN was dressed in a white t-shirt and jeans, I think she's just a very casual and informal person.
