Welcome, people who read this somewhat weekly column about the latest Japanese import games.
Welcome to a week of big releases.
There are too many games.
I can’t hold all these games in my hands.
Please, somebody save me.

So uh, yeah.
That’s a thing that’s happening.
According to an early Famitsu leak, a new Langrisser game will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS this summer. It’ll have elements of cyber punk in it, featuring 10 vs 10 unit battles. Characters will be 3D super deformed.
The story takes place in a land primarily submerged under water, where a young man obtains the holy Excalibur and fights against the empire in order to save a girl. Yay.
Character designs are being handled by Hirosh Kaieda of Gyrozetter fame.
Not sure how I feel about any of this to be honest. Especially without Satoshi Urushihara on board. Seems wrong.
I think I’m mostly just surprised to be writing anything about a NEW Langrisser game in 2015.
