In News, Today in Japan by Grant Mikuriya

Today we see that fans of the Kirby anime series should book a trip to Japan ASAP, DLC releases for Revengance, and we say “¿por que no los dos?” to moe and RPG’s with Tiara Concerto Online.

  • An animated 3D short of Kirby called Hoshi no Kirby Taose! Koukaku Majuu Ebizou will be screening until 3/31/14, in the Adventure Theatre located in the Ritsukawa Museum.
  • A patch as well as the download version of the visual novel Dream Club Complete Edipyon! has released today on the Playstation Network.  This version includes new events in the storyline, as well as gets rid of old bugs.
  • DLC for Metal Gear Revengance called Jetstream releases worldwide today.  The story features the titular Jetstream and this PV was aired in Japan to advertise the sale date.
  • The self-proclaimed Moe Action RPG called Tiara Concerto Online has a new update that releases today.  The level cap has been raised to 35 and new content has been added to accommodate that cap.
  • The previously mentioned Korean MOBA Chaos Heroes Online has started their open beta today in Japan.
  • Kakao Talk, a free call and text message application for smartphones, is having its fifth campaign promoting the third Evangelion reboot movie.  By meeting the requirements then sending digital kuji tickets to your friends (there is a limit on how many you can send per day), you have a chance to get a prize when you are sent one back.  Your chances at winning are further increased if you refer friends during the campaign, which ends on 4/15/13.
