Definitely. I know a good few things I like would be totally affected. And I agree that it makes them unique , nothing as awesome as anime and manga is ever really produced in many areas around the world. But then again , I understand that they may not want to be known as just "that country that produces all that pervy & weird stuff."

On topic: I do hope that release stays but by now another pushback wouldn't even surprise me. Wait for the greatness. The visuals are still pretty good from what we've seen & i'm itching to get behind the persona of the one 'Miss Blue." The Aozaki's sure have a lot of influence in things.

They've been accurate on the release dates in the past for all the instances I've bought pre-orders (sometimes the orders were shipped before the release date). But will have to wait and see I guess...
Apparently it has been pushed back to the end of March...?

A bumpage of sorts.
Ok - it's a weekday but thought this is rather significant news, albeit a slightly negative one.

It's been delayed again. Till sometime in 2011; they last said sometime during the winter break.

One thing to note is the product page has been updated. I think the system requirements have been changed. Read the recommended core clock frequency: dual-core at 2.66GHz. Quite hefty on the hardware despite being less than 720 pixxies (<non-HD)...

Another bumpage.
There is a new promo video which has snippets of the actual gameplay.

...Judging from how the text is displayed and scrolled, I can now understand why the hardware requirements are so high. Such smooth text display I understand demands alot of D3D processing, something which GPUs aren't particularly fond of. And considering your average-John-Doe has intergrated solutions (motherboard-based Intel graphics for one), I think that explains why the CPU requirements are up there.

Character sprites are all static (so no 'live' motion stuff that I once hoped for). And there doesn't seem to be voice acting (though the music-over in the promo makes it impossible to confirm); judging from static sprites, I doubt there will be any anyways.

In case anyone is interested in what the text of that video says, here's a (rough) translation:

@sushimonster
Yeah, I just managed to watch the promotion video recently.
I'm still getting it anyway, with or without translation.

The release date is still (sometime in) 2011 though...

Just an update... received an email from AmiAmi. The release date is now April 2012. No voice acting, no eroge, no alt route.... a bit disappointing :( Anyway, keeping my preorder still

That makes sense, with the demo being released just recently and all.
No voice acting makes me a sad Master Panda.

So it'll be out in 2 weeks.
definately all ages rating?
Are we seeing Type Moon now pandering to the mainstream after all it's publicity with anime series/manga of Fate/xxx and now they have to be a "respectable" visual novel company or just a change cause the writer wanted it that way?
And also, I should probably just go a read the original Tsukihime to get the jist of what these characters are about, I get the feeling that "remake" may take quite some time.
Thoughts?

Anyone take the time to read the demo (English or Japanese)? Just finished downloading the fan-translated demo, so I'll post my thoughts here when I'm finished reading it.

I've finished the eng version some time ago (almost when it was first released actually!) and i must say... Graphics are really good, music is fabulous and the writing is well... you know how good Nasu's V/N's are =D

I hate to bug you guys with this, but... Considering how long it has been since it was released, have you come to a decision regarding translation? Is it good enough for you guys to do it?

It seems that this guy has decided to do it with Amaterasu Translations: http://emptyboundaries.wordpress.com/20 ... on-mahoyo/.
So we probably won't be doing this one unless another translator shows interest and wants to work with us.

Ah I was wondering who if anyone was planning on taking up the translation of this story. In any case the only thing I can do is wait for someone to do a good job on translating it. If we're lucky maybe he'll have you guys at mirror moon to help him out, but then again who knows.

So in other words this will take a while to see who will really want to whole heartedly translate and release thisstory sometime soon.... I whould hope.
