I hitched a ride down to the local bookstore at lunch break today to pick up the newly-released May ’07 issue of Tech Gian, eagerly anticipating the tidbits of scoopage to be found therein that hadn’t already made their way online. Imagine my surprise when browsing the monthly Scoop a Go! Go! section to find an article on the newest game in the Nitro+ lineup – written entirely in English. Scans follow:

WHAT THE DAMN HEEZY!?

I exclaimed, quoting the protagonist of Yume Miru Kusuri. Not only is the game the first to be designed by the illustrious Niθ since Jingai Makyou, not only is it written by veteran Nitro+ scenario writer Urobuchi Gen of Fate / Zero fame, but it’s been scooped in delicious, almost-comprehensible Engrish! Who could ask for anything more… aside from figures of the three main heroines in wedding-dress form, which given recent precedent we can expect sometime in the summer of 2009.

Based purely on the designs thus far, Ms Blue is my pick for the new Ignis and/or Al Ajif. We’ll see how things develop… they’re all moe in my book though, so it’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned. :3 We’ll be following this game most closely as it unfolds, oh yes we will… I do hope they change the name from “Tre donne crudeli” before all is said and done, though.
