Wonder what kinda game Orochi Erotica is?
It's just Musou Orochi, but this photo shows a sexy new character. Orochi Erotica is not the name of the game, silly.

No PS3 related news I guess right?
No news is good news, right? :)

No pics yet. I'll post if/when there are any. It's not Inafune's game though, and it's said to have a very cute graphics style.

Treasure Island sounds pretty neat. And I guess I could count on Capcom to at least try.

what is musou orochi

Take Samurai warriors and Dynasty warriors, put them in the same game, make it so you play as 3 characters at one time, and make them battle some bible black esque japanese weirdos and you've got orochi.


Any news on Sengoku Basara Eiyuu Gaiden?

How so? Treasure Island Z sounds cool. Capcom's an awesome developer, and adventure games rock.

Good to see Idea Factory on the ball as usual.

Stop making RPG/SRPGs, please, and just stick with your ADVs.

Wow, that actually looks really good. Though, I'd probably be able to tell better from direct feed shots.

It took a while, but it looks like third party support is jumping up.

Now if only the West would drop some more mature games on the Wii...

Care to elaborate? Is it a case of swapping in and out characters or are all three characters on screen at once, with the other 2 being AI controlled until you switch to them.

I had sworn off Musou games until the first proper next-gen on, but I might be willing to make an exception depending on how that turns out.

When I saw the scan I was scared that Treasure Island Z was based off of some obscure, random anime. Thankfully not.

Cautiously optimistic.

Will Musou Orochi 2 feature Gundam characters? ;)
They can put the new SD Gundam series - Sangoshi as secret characters. Liu Bi Gundam, Kuan Yu Gundam, Lu Bu Gundam etc......

While it's nice to hear the good score return for Musou Orochi, I honestly wasn't surprised. Musou games practically do well in Japan-land all the time, and I suspected that unless they royally screwed up, the game would get similar rankings.

But ooo...who's that in the new scan? A distinctly original character? Is she for or against Orochi? Unfortunately, I can't hope to read more from that particular scan... ;_;

Yep...definitely gonna be all over this next week. Between HnK and MO, I'll probably be good for both March and April....then I'm hoping that Odin Sphere will come out in May... :D

Inafune is not involved in treasure island it seems.

Director: sasaki eiichiro (Bio hazard outbreak 1,2)
producer: Takeshita Hironobu

HAWT DS games in the new Famitsu:

THE Driving School
THE Crime Scene Investigator 2
How To Write & Speak Beautiful Japanese
Train Your Brain Power With Numbers
Koenji Girls' Soccer 2
Killing Kung Fu Kanji Dragon
Juushinden (dunno, sounds like it could be a real game ("Beast God Legend")
Chuukana Janshi Tenho Painyan (moeporn mahjong)

I love the state of DS software in Japan right now. It's simultaneously fascinating and grotesque, like murder scene photos.
