A lot of collabs lately...
But hey, the Three Kingdoms AND cat ears/beast race, that's gotta be interesting right?
Casting and art isn't so bad, but I probably won't preorder this one (unless they reveal more).

Oh my god, another game about the Three Kingdoms?

I hope this turns out to be good, 'cuz I love the Three Kingdoms' story! Even though Sangoku Rensenki was a great game- the Three Kingdom's characters and plot seemed a bit too hard for me and fellow Chinese to swallow. I hope they don't mess it up in this game. It's a superb setting.

The art seems atttractive, as expected from Idea Factory. Hope more information can be released soon. ^^

From what I read:

- The protagonist lives with a group of 猫族 or people of the "cat/mythical feline race"
- who've been persecuted for centuries and cast out by humans, and have formed a hidden village of their own,
- is half cat half human herself,
- very much trusted by the village elder,
- and in the game, is to wage war on a human military faction aimed at suppressing her own people...

I smell potential forbidden love/angst/fraternizations with the enemy!! (σ^▽^)σ

Sounds like the beginning of an interesting adventure-based otome game XD
Hope they release more info soon--

@reira thanks! sounds interesting (though reminds me of that nitrol game... what is it again? you know the one w/ cat ears.)

the 2nd guy from the left on the official site is really bad angle... does anybody know what other stuff this person has drawn?

:edit: OK WOW THE CHARA DESIGN... I... THIS...

can't seem to wrap my head around it. seriously man none of them even REMOTELY fit the original story (except maybe 3rd bro... and i guess sou? i dunno if that's how you say his name.) LIKE OMG THE HEROINE IS THE 2ND BRO??? AND THE 1ST BRO IS A SHOUTA???? WHAAAAAAT (brain implodes)

NERDPOST AHEAD:

Ugh, haven't been paying much attention to new otome games recently, but yyyyyessssss another Sanguo game! And this time it looks like the heroine may be competent and perhaps even badass (as it's kind of hard to nerf the iconic Guan Yu)! (I liked Sangokuren Senki, but still wanted a more, er, powerful heroine.) Phew, they really got some interesting people to work on this game: Hiroi Ouji is the producer behind the Sakura Taisen series (and I think the Japanese wiki says he was heavily involved in Tengai Makyou of all things), and obviously Uematsu is famous as far as video game composers go. Don't immediately recognize the artist, though, and would be curious to see if anyone else knows anything else besides Iza! Shutsujin and this game that he/she has produced art for. Thought the art looked a bit like Clock ZERO's and AMNESIA's (though less...airy/ornate somehow), but have no interest in those two and the sites don't seem to say who the artist(s) were, so can anyone confirm/deny? At any rate, I'm really enjoying the art style, so as long as Otomate don't wussify the heroine too much, I think this'll be a winner for me.

Looks like the main characters besides Guan Yu are (in order from left to right on the Characters page): Liu Bei, Zhang Fei, Zhao Yun, Cao Cao, Xiahou Dun and... Zhang Liao! (HECK YES YAMADAAA! Always wanted to go after him, one of my favorite Wei officers; it looks like he might be a bit of a somewhat axe-crazy battle-lover here, unless I'm mistranslating.) Wonder if good ol' Kongming will show up (maybe later/as a secret route? that might be plagiarism, though XD)? So if this follows the novel/history at all, it looks like this will be early Sanguo (i.e. up to about 220 C.E. or so) as usual; too bad there aren't any later-era otome games, I'd like to see some tragedies involving the few later heroes. Glad too that Wu isn't represented as of yet; it'd be...difficult to square with history, even more so than any romances with Wei officers (and Lu Meng, the only guy in Wu I like, would, uh, NOT work for this heroine). XD

Also, for what it's worth, how could anyone NOT make Liu Bei an adorable shouta? He was kinda pathetic but charismatic in the book (until he wasn't, but that's for another time).

Anyway, watching this like a hawk. Sorry for the nerdin', gonna go back to lurkin'.

@蒼海龍敏 hm i'm glad you like it. i still can't quite accept it yet... LOL illustrations from the tale of 3 kingdoms from my childhood is just ingrained waay too deep into my consciousness. in my mind every single man in the whole story have massive beer guts and 1st bro's supposed to have super long ear lobes (LOL wootwoot good luck!) and arms that reach his knees etc.

...yeahhhh this is totally my problem LOL though strangely i didn't have that big of a problem with s.y.k... maybe it's because they didn't change the appearances too much (well, ok, they did, but they just made the guys hotter that's all xD) maybe i'm going to have to start viewing this from a diff perspective. pretend they have nothing to do w/ the original 3 kingdoms story.

Ah, sorry if you thought I was disagreeing with you; I didn't grow up with 3K, so all the heroes' appearances a little less engraved in my cultural consciousness. Most people I know who even know which three kingdoms I'm talking about are so used to troll-Liu Bei and so on that they're shocked when they see how Japan prettifies everyone and not just Zhou Yu, so I understand how you feel. Though I admit I'd almost like to see an "ugly" yet incredibly likeable guy as an option; maybe that's why I tend to like non-ero-jiji ossan routes/characters in games? XD I think the only game I've played that pulled that trick was Love Revo!, and Touru (I think that's his name) ended up bishounen anyway...

Ahem. Anyhow. This is certainly going to be very different from the traditional story, what with the sudden appearance of Chinese cat-people. (I'm getting hints that there might be something about a quest for 13 SCROLLS OF ULTIMATE POWER.) I hope the wackiness of some of the other series Hiroi Ouji has worked on comes through in this game as well.

(Re: SYK, I think in general that Journey to the West had a format and cultural history that was easier to adapt to an otome game: Sanzang was a fairly malleable everyman [albeit kind of a wet blanket] traveling on a journey through the mind as well as space with four interesting personalities who were all very different. Sounds like a good harem setup to me. :P Three Kingdoms focuses on Shu Han and some Cao Wei, sure, but there are over one thousand distinct people mentioned over almost 100 years and they're almost all dudes, many of whom die off relatively quickly in endless battle. Also romances are mostly political ploys and aren't really dwelt on. I think the former is why they have to focus on a relatively small bit of the history and a few main characters in games like this, and the latter may be why Sanguo otome games feel so different from the book/history while Xiyouji seems much more "fitting." Just speculation though; feel free to counter.)

Edit: Herpderp, the 十三支 in the name refers to the Maozoku (not Nekozoku as would be typical; they're going with the Chinese pronunciation) being labeled by humans as ruled by a 13th (unlucky?) sign under the Chinese zodiac due to their being neither human nor beast. Awww, they're working in the cat being left out of the typical East Asian (as opposed to South-east Asian) zodiac.

This looks like a very interesting game. I love the drawings and the music to it as well. I just recently saw the opening to this game and loved it. The music that was playing during the opening was cool. I cant wait for this game to come it since it grabbed my attention.

Anyone playing this game? Are there any bugs and such?
I heard an issue in chapter 4 (Sousou's route) about the game automatically saving and throwing you back to the title screen, but I made it to Chouhi's chapter 7 without any problems.. does any of you encounter that bug (?) in the game?

I played through all of Cao Cao's route with no problems, though I admit I didn't try out all of the dialogue options. There are a couple bad ends that can occur during the end of Cao Cao's route (not the real bad end, but game overs) that save the system data before kicking the player back to the title screen, but I don't think that's what they're talking about. There have been some typos where the dialogue doesn't quite match the script, which is weird to me (since I can't stand it when English game writers/actors don't check their grammar/script, I figured a visual novel would take more care).

I'm still on my second character (I play through VNs very slowly, since I have work and school), but I'm really enjoying the game. (Full disclosure: I love almost anything Sanguo, ancient warfare and cat-related, and I am a sucker for physically strong heroines. I haven't actually played that many otome games because only a handful have a badass fighter with a strong will for a main character, so what may be tedious and/or cliche to more experienced players makes me squee.) I've played one of the bonus routes as well, and it was fun despite having no saving or choices. Ma Chao was kind of hilarious; I've never seen him presented as a flirtatious character before. Just wish there was a scene replay outside of the Peach Garden vignettes (and that they hadn't put CGs in the bad ends because ew, Cao Cao's bad end was just DO NOT WANT ~_~). While the romantic scenes are really cute, I'm not sure anyone who doesn't like copious amounts of wartime will want to plow through the several hours each route takes. There've also been some reviewers on AmazonJP wondering why they chose the Sanguo period at all, given all the differences, but I liked their decision to set a racially-charged warfare game in ancient China. *shrugs* Also, the setting allows the heroine to face immense pressure and come out on top because she is a BAMF, which doesn't seem to happen in more typical school romances.

Notes for other Sanguo nuts: Wu fans, you're outta luck; the game ends before Chibi, and even during the Anti-Dong Zhuo Coalition Sun Jian and Ce are MIA. (I love that there's no options for Wu, actually, but that's because I hate most of them with the passion of a thousand fiery suns and think they're less interesting than the other two major kingdoms. Lu Meng would make an interesting route, though...)

Edit: Also I will be posting walls of text for a while because I love this game I am so sorry in advance.
Edit 2: I hate to ask this, but I couldn't find an answer in the forums and am nervous about starting a topic myself. How does one go about changing her username?

Alright, it has been aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages since I ever reviewed a game that I have played. But I thought I will give this game a go because there were so much to LOL about.


Overall, it is an interesting game, the length of each route is of quite a good length and some routes are quite touching and some routes made me laugh so hard (not due to humour).

Pros:
  • BGM
  • art
  • seiyuu voices...TORIUMI YOU WERE AWESOME
  • loved the bad ED 8D (I am a sadist LOL)

Cons:
  • cant skip the battle parts that obviously was the same plot in many individual routes
  • the WTF-ness of some plots
  • takes forever to load, so it felt like it takes forever to go through some very short dialougues
  • too many useless dialogues like "!!", "?!", "..." imgaine it takes 5 sec to load each dialogue and every character has to do the "!!" thing once =_=
  • I still found it amusing how they could have a conversation and rabu rabu in the middle of a on going battle and won't get shot by flying arrows or chopped by random soldiers...

If anyone is curious on what order you should go in, I recommend this Chouhi->Chouun->Kakouton->Chouryou->Ryuubi->Sousou. Must leave Sousou to the end because his route does have a few spoilers

Okay, now I am going to rant now, and I will put it in spoiler LOL

Spoiler


ok, I will stop ranting, go play this game if you want to have a good laugh and have time to spare 8D

Edit 2: I hate to ask this, but I couldn't find an answer in the forums and am nervous about starting a topic myself. How does one go about changing her username?


unfortunately you cant, it is because if members were allowed to change their usernames, then it would become too confusing for others. But if you really need to, please PM me and I will change it to the one you want as a one time exception

@Misha: I didnt get any bugs.
