    If I didn’t know any better, I’d think Super Mario U was an otome game!

      nice joke bro
      i never know a kids calling mario game is gay game lol

  • Elfyra

    yeah, definitely will import White Album 2 ^_^

    • Star Platinum

      It doesn’t have an English option

  • KurisuMakise

    Look at the amount of PSP games there…10 year plan, geez! Nevermind NSMBU’s score, I’m happy to see Nintendo Land is worth playing, I’ll remember that as I watch WiiU’s library grow.

    • MosquitoLemon

      Fun Fact: Every system has countless VN releases long after it is abandoned by the developer. And most of those are ports on top of that..

      • KurisuMakise

        Yes but are they also getting new One Piece games, RPGs, etc afterwards? (Sword Art Online, Digimon Adventure)

          I kind of wish for the PSP to just die off so the Vita can get some of those games though :/

          • MosquitoLemon

            Can’t blame them for following the money though. This was the same problem the PS3 had for years.

            • http://www.facebook.com/Josephl64 Joseph Locke

              I know, I don’t blame them at all, but I just wish that the Vita can pump up its library quickly

          • YangTerlupakan

            The Passport program for Vita is good reason developer keep making game for psp, maybe psp is dead but the money is still there.

        • MosquitoLemon

          Yeah, because they’ve been in development forever. Digimon was announced months and months ago when Re:Digitize dropped, and SAO was planned alongside the anime adaptation.

          • KurisuMakise

            Right but it’s more the fact that they were planned. That’s really commendable on Sony’s part. It’s also the source of the moving on problems but honestly, I don’t feel it’s such a bad thing. 3 Sources of revenue trump Vita stealing thunder from PS3 and PSP for months until PS4 launches. Though I get the feeling PS4 will be in for a similar tough time transition wise. Using the Vita as another way to continue using PS3 assets =(

      • Star Platinum

        I dont remember N64, Gamecube or Wii having any visual novels (Wii having a few point n click adventures but thats about it)

  • almostautumn

    I wish I could understand the White Album games. I love the idea behind it; sounds so melancholic and delightful.

    Someday— someday!

    • YangTerlupakan

      is not the anime version is not good enough for u???

      • Star Platinum

        wut. Calm down there slappy

  • Kazziyan

    My White Album 2 is with Canada Post. -_- Not very convenient that they are also closed on Boxing Day. Not even a holiday!

    • Eclipse

      Lol, I know, right! What’s the deal with that? Oh, well, waiting a few days won’t kill me~

      • Kazziyan

        Man where the hell have you been? :p

        • KurisuMakise

          Holy cow Eclipse finally came to the party o.o!

        • Eclipse

          Haha, I’ve been around. XD

          Oh, I didn’t know Kurisu was also on Gematsu!

          I never registered on this site because I thought making a Disqus account would be headache-inducing…. It turned out to be rather simple, so here I am!
