    It was gorgeous. I wonder if the Gessen/New Hebijo girls will be DLC.

  • Leopold

    I like the new art, but I wish they would make new 3d models instead of reusing the old vita ones

  • I don’t like it, the original two intros were better, this one feels like a compromise one. They would have been better to have created a brand new intro instead of recycling old material.

  • Eldhin Shichiou
  • Loli(Brava) jogando SteinsGate

    they are. that’s what they confirm at the end of the video.


    It made me smile.

  • Loli(Brava) jogando SteinsGate

    agreed. I get that they need to use a base body that they can costumize proportions in order to make outfits work on everyone but they REALLY should look into making the characters more similar to their artwork. (heck, an eroge like Honey Select has a very large range of body customization with one default body, so I don’t see why the SK devs can’t change theirs.)

  • Loli(Brava) jogando SteinsGate

    Kinda wish we had new Animation instead of reusing old ones but… Still cool. I dig the music.

  • Mr0303

    I saw that, but I wasn’t sure if they would be playable or just some side story stuff.

  • Vita continues to hold games back.

  • Atsumachi

    Hell, have you seen the new models that they use for New Link? Leagues better than the EV models that they keep using. They look reminiscent of (funnily enough) the Burst artstyle that Nan used to have before he made it look like all of the characters he draws are constantly going through a wind tunnel.

  • A Ninja Bailarina masoquista

    Actually, I haven’t! As much as I love SK, the mere information that a game is on mobile instantly makes my interest in it plummet to -500. But since you said that the models look better, now I have to check it out (I actually like the “wind tunnel” style. as an art student learning how to draw drapery, Nan is a killer at it)

  • A Ninja Bailarina masoquista

    We know Yumi is going to have a side Story so it’s safe to assume the Hebigirls and Guessing school are gonna have their little plots too. Maybe something to tell what they were up to while the first game was happening.

  • BFG

    Not like Tamsoft has a high budget (and probably time constraint too) to allow themselves to restart from scratch 3D modelling on all characters. And certainly because it’s also cheaper to take this kind of shortcut by using the existing 3D models.

  • Mr0303

    The thing is that they could include more of a VN type of thing rather than make a side story for each girl.

  • Bailarina Ninja masoquista

    that’s what I think they’ll do.

  • XimXim

    Still my handheld of choice though.

  • OtakuBrony230

    And now we wait 3-4 years for a Steam release.

    Nice anime trailer but are the games themselves still plagued by magic floating beach ball tits?
