Grisaia Visual Novel Trilogy to be Released onto Steam


The Grisaia trilogy by Frontwing has landed itself onto Steam Greenlight and with enough votes, it will be released roughly around October of this year. The titles: The Fruit of Grisaia (Grisaia no Kaijutsu), The Labyrinth of Grisaia (Grisaia no Meikyuu) and The Eden of Grisaia (Grisaia no Rakuen) will be ported from the updated Playstation Vita version onto the PC.

The project to bring the game over to North American users, was created by sekaiproject on Kickstarter and since it’s start has received more than double it’s initial pledge of $160,000 with over 2,500 supporters. There is still almost 2 weeks left to reap the rewards of donating for this project.

Fans will also rejoice as The Labyrinth of Grisaia and the Eden of Grisaia will premiere this coming March. This will complete the set of three as the Fruit of Grisaia had just completed it’s 13-episode Anime last month.

The first game had also won the Grand Prize of the 2011 Moe Game Awards, including the Gold Prizes for Scenario, User’s Choice, Theme Song, and True Love.

Two Manga adaptations have also been published by Akita Shoten and Mag Garden, making this set of Visual Novels much more recognized than it’s competition.

Kindle Keyboard Firmware Update Fixes Browser Security Issues


The Kindle Keyboard is close to five years old and Amazon is still supporting it. The Seattle based company has just issued a new firmware update that seeks to resolve a security issue with the internet browser.

The vulnerability with the internet browser stems from accessing online content utilizing the 3G connection. Modern websites often have heavier security credentials when it comes to accessing email or using the login forms. The Kindle Keyboard had used an antiquated version of security, which resulted in this e-reader getting locked out and not being able to connect to certain sites.

The very small update that is currently available resolves this issue, the exact version number is 3.4.1. If you are having problems connecting to the internet I would recommend you download the firmware update manually. It can sometimes takes months for updates to hit all devices, because Amazon does it in a staggered release, so millions of people aren’t doing it all at once.

The Kindle Keyboard was the last Amazon branded e-reader that used 3G to access the internet, all subsequent models use WIFI.

New Upcoming Tokyo Ghoul Video Game


Rumors are emerging about a new upcoming Tokyo Ghoul video game titled “Tokyo Ghoul Masquerader”. This is the first video game to Sui Ishida‘s hit Manga and Anime series Tokyo Ghoul. It is said to release on the PS Vita as an adventure role-playing game, developed by Bandai Namco. It is to note however, last year Ishida had posted a teaser video game storyboard for April Fools Day. Luckily, this release seems much more credible, as additional information is scheduled to be released this Thursday, in Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine.

Overseas fans may be disappointed as the game would only have been approved to distribute in Japan, let alone a date or even so much as a price tag. It may take quite some time before an English version is released into the international market.

Last month, Bandai Namco had released a teaser for it’s new smartphone game “Tokyo Ghoul Carnaval”. It is set to be released sometime this year.

Tokyo Ghoul was given a second season for it’s anime “Tokyo Ghoul √A” which had been released on January 8th by Pierrot, who also animated Naruto, Naruto Shippuden and the Legend of Korra.

The series had also previously been awarded the “Complete Manga Prize of 2014″, overtaking one of the great three “Naruto”.
